Pet End of Life Care
When working with you and your loved one, we recognize that there are health problems that cannot be cured. These conditions may prompt you to look at their final care and quality of life. We want to consider all aspects of your pet’s comfort. The following pyramid is an example of things that we consider:
At Dells Veterinary Services, our role is to answer questions you might have about your pet’s condition and how it will advance. We’re here to help you plan for their care including taking care of their physical, social, emotional, and end-of-life needs. We do this by respecting what you are seeing at home with your pet (we have a chart that families find useful to help track their pet’s condition). We also want to work with you to develop a plan so we reach the ultimate goal where your pet is free from pain and anxiety, no matter what path you choose.
We encourage everyone to ask questions along the way, and we realize that this often takes multiple visits and conversations to see how care is going at home.
