Hospice and Euthanasia
Hospice care occurs when attempts to cure a pet’s illness have stopped for the benefit of the pet. For humans, hospice care is the phase when a patient has stopped treatment in order to live their life as fully as possible before nature takes its course.
- Focuses on making the pet’s final days or weeks as pleasant as possible
- Utilizes a proper administering of pain medications, dietary strategies and human interaction
- Is careful not to prolong the suffering of pets who are in pain or experiencing poor quality of life
- Emphasizes the principle that death is a part of life and can be dignified
End of Life Care
Sometimes when all medical efforts have been exhausted, euthanasia is the only way to help an animal find peace. While saying goodbye to your very best friend may be one of the hardest things you will ever have to do, it’s still important to remember all the good times and all the joy you have brought to each other’s lives.
As pet owners ourselves, we understand that pets are part of the family, and they deserve to pass with dignity. When it’s time to let go, our caring staff of compassionate professionals can help you through this difficult experience.
Our end-of-life euthanasia services are humane and are performed with compassion, respect and gentle care. Please contact us at 504-834-0906 today to discuss these services.
