PET HOSPICE AT KINGBROOK ANIMAL HOSPITAL
As dedicated pet owners ourselves, we understand how difficult it can be to make decisions regarding end-of-life care for our pets. As our pets age, they may develop conditions such as cancer, organ failure, osteoarthritis, dementia, or other age-related illnesses. When these conditions do not respond to treatment and cause significant discomfort for our pets, it may be necessary to begin hospice care.
Kingsbrook Animal Hospital offers quality-of-life consultations to help determine your pet’s current health and quality-of-life. By choosing hospice care for your pet, we can help you with the transition and what to expect during this difficult time. Together, we will develop a plan that is in the best interest of both your pet and your family. Depending on the condition, there may be a point in time when medical treatments are no longer effective, and the kindest thing to consider for an ailing pet is humane euthanasia. During the consultation, we will assess your pet’s health needs and discuss the options that are available. Our veterinarians will sit down with you to discuss the process of euthanasia so that you can have peace of mind in knowing it is a peaceful and painless passing.
