Compassionate Veterinary Hospice offers a family-centered approach that provides medical and nursing care for the pet and support for the family. Our team includes:

The team works together focusing on the seriously ill pet’s needs; physical, emotional, and social. The goal is to help keep the animal as pain-free as possible, with loved ones nearby until death. The hospice team develops an individualized care plan that meets the pet's needs for comfort and pain management, and offers the family resources for coping with a stressful reality.
