End of Life Care/Counseling
Having a terminally ill pet is never easy. Our pets provide us with unconditional love, and, in turn, we are their advocate when it comes to making decisions about their health and wellbeing. The most difficult of these decisions to face is when we have a pet that is sick and dying; choices on continued treatment can be hard.
The compassionate doctors at Partners for Pets Veterinary Hospital have been providing care through all phases of your pet’s life. We will continue the same kind, understanding care you have come to expect, and see them through the last days or weeks of their life. Deciding when you may need to let go of your constant companion is a very personal and private decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make this difficult choice on your own. The veterinarians at Partners for Pets Veterinary Hospital offer end of life care and counseling services, making sure you that you have all the information you need to make the right choice as your pet’s entrusted caregiver.
Our veterinarians will examine your pet thoroughly to determine if your companion still has a quality of life left. End of life care is utilized when all treatment options have been exhausted. The goal of end of life care is to make the patient comfortable and pain free while giving the family time with their much loved pet before saying goodbye.
Our sympathetic doctors focus on helping animals experience terminal illness and the dying process with dignity. While it is never easy to say goodbye to your faithful companion, we do everything we can to make the process of euthanasia as peaceful as can be. Our kind-hearted veterinarians have hand-chosen medications that are painless and induce pets to drift off into a peaceful and permanent sleep.
The doctors at Partners for Pets Veterinary Hospital will make house calls for this service by appointment when needed. We will transport your pet’s remains back to our clinic if they are euthanized at home to provide burial services or cremation services if you wish to have your pet’s remains returned to you.
Our end of life counseling services are conducted with respect, compassion, and care. If you live in the vicinity of Montgomery or Pike Road, Alabama, before you struggle through one more day with a sick, elderly, or terminally ill pet that is suffering, call us at Partners for Pets to learn how we can help you through this difficult time.
