Is Veterinary Hospice Right for You?

Hospice care is a family-centered approach to caring for animals with serious incurable illness. The animal hospice team includes, at a minimum, a hospice veterinarian and a veterinary technician specializing in animal hospice nursing. The pet’s primary caregivers [human family or owners] must also take an active part in caring for the pet, assessing his or her condition and making important treatment decisions. Your family veterinarian can participate in your pet’s hospice care if both you and the veterinarian are interested. Other participants in the team could be a pet sitter, a grief counselor or a spiritual support person.
 
The hospice team and family work together to develop a plan of care that meets the pet's individual needs for pain management, symptom control, comfort and companionship.

At Compassionate Veterinary Hospice, the hospice relationship starts with a free intake interview with our animal hospice nursing specialist. The interview helps us understand better what your needs are. It also helps you find out more about the rewards and responsibilities of being a hospice caregiver for your pet, so you can decide whether hospice is the best choice for you and for your pet. 

Providing hospice care for your pet means you will be taking upon yourself new responsibilities. This special commitment can be very rewarding, but it requires a combination of your time, emotional and physical strength, and cost. The hospice team will make it a high priority to find out how best to support you and your family during this time.
