Why palliative care at home?
Pet owners are provided with emotional support during this difficult time. We help pet owners cope with the emotional challenges of caring for a terminally ill pet and help them make informed decisions about their pet’s care. Palliative care often involves close collaboration with the pet’s family. Pet owners play an active role in decision-making, and we offer guidance and understanding throughout the process.
The process begins with an initial assessment by our veterinarian. Our veterinarian will review the pet’s medical history, perform a thorough physical examination, and discuss the pet owner’s concerns and goals for their pet’s care.
Based on the assessment, the veterinarian will develop a personalized care plan tailored to the pet’s specific needs. The care plan will focus on managing pain, discomfort, and other symptoms to enhance the pet’s comfort and well-being.
Palliative care often involves the use of medications to control pain and alleviate other symptoms. The veterinarian will prescribe appropriate medications to ensure the pet’s comfort.
Regular monitoring of your pet’s health and symptoms is essential in palliative care. Our veterinarian will schedule regular check-ups to assess your pet’s condition and make any necessary adjustments to the care plan.
In some cases, palliative care may transition to end-of-life care as your pet’s condition progresses. Our veterinarian will offer guidance and support in making end-of-life decisions, including euthanasia if necessary.
Throughout the palliative care process, our veterinarian will maintain open communication with you (the pet owner), providing updates, addressing any concerns, and ensuring that the care plan is meeting your pet’s needs.
