Palliative Care In Your Home

Veterinary medicine has come up with
wonderful ways to keep animals comfortable even as they decline. If
your pet is suffering from a chronic, progressive illness but clearly
has time left on her clock, Hospice or Palliative Care may
be the answer you are looking for. The goal in this stage is not to
cure but to provide comfort. This may involve pain management,
nutritional support, or other types of treatment that can be tailored to
your family and pet’s circumstances.
Whether it is for a few days or several weeks, palliative care can give
family members time to adjust to the changing situation while humanely
offering the pet an opportunity to continue living comfortably at home
for a while longer. The Quality of Life Scale may help guide you when the end is near.
Thank you again for your kind, gentle, compassionate care for Maggie.
You were like an angel coming to us in the night. We will never forget
He did feel like going outside so he and I went and hung out by the pool for about 20 min. He likes climbing up on my tummy. He is sleeping more each day, but does not seem to be in pain. We have set-up our own kitty hospice and are taking it one day at a time. We are both at peace with our decision and thank you for the time you took to help us "get there". Bless you! A, Los Gatos
