HOSPICE CARE FOR YOUR PET

Hospice care is an option if your pet is suffering from a terminal illness where there are no curative options or treatment side effects outweigh the benefits. The goal is to make a pet's final weeks or months more pleasant.     

 

Palliative care begins at diagnosis of a serious illness and uses a combination of Western and TCVM medicine to stop suffering and help both the animal and care giver manage the disease.  

To help make the pet more comfortable we are able to offer a variety options. 

  • We offer alternative care such as acupuncture, PEMF, herbs and supplements

  • We can prescribe appropriate pain medication 

  • We can offer suggestions, supplements or medications that can help stimulate appetite

  • We talk about mobility support equipment and how to prepare your home properly 

  • Administration of subcutaneous fluids and vitamin B12

  • Bandaging or chronic wound care

Our hospice service can includes a full history, exam, consultation and first treatment with Dr. Amanda and a  hospice plan is presented to the owner and might include any of the above treatment options. We also talk about how to evaluate the quality of life. This visit is $300 and includes 2 hours of doctor time.  If herbs, supplements, medications are prescribed those would be additional. This also includes one follow-up email to check on pet and make any changes to plan as needed .
