Geriatric Pet Medicine
Older pets often have multiple chronic diseases, trouble with weight loss or gain, chronic pain, mobility problems, or cognitive issues, and need medications and other specialized support or care. Geriatric support can provide helpful environmental changes, physical medicine (such as acupuncture, massage, and exercises), and environmental enrichment. Frequent communication to make treatment changes and adjustments will help to make sure your older pet ages gracefully and stress-free.
Hospice care aims to meet the physical and mental needs of a pet faced with a life-limiting illness. It begins the moment a pet is diagnosed with a terminal condition, and the family has decided not to pursue aggressive, curative therapies. Pet hospice focuses on caring, not curing. We understand that serious illness profoundly impacts not only the patient but the family as well. Our goal is to promote a caring community sensitive to the entire family’s needs while also providing excellent care for a comfortable and full end of life.
Quality of Life Exams
Our team will help you to evaluate and track your pet’s quality of life, anticipating changes in their illness before they occur. Managing pain and suffering are some of the biggest concerns a family has when caring for a pet at the end of life. If available, we will review your pet’s medical history, discuss the expected progression of their disease and potential complications and treatment options for managing any signs of discomfort you may be seeing.
The decision to say goodbye is never easy. With the support of our team, you will never have to make it alone. We promise to make your goodbye as easy and as comfortable as possible for you, your pet, and your entire family. Our empathetic and compassionate doctors will guide you from start to finish.
