"When our animals near the end, we need a relationship with someone who can help us through the tough emotions of grief, guide us with care for our beloved and help you both live life with quality and dignity and approach death with care and kindness."
Let Beloved Pet Mobile Vet help you and your beloved through this difficult time.
NEWS AND EVENTS
How we can help you
and your beloved.
Due to Covid-19 and following guidelines set by the AVMA, we are back on schedule for euthanasia only appointments. Please call for an appointment and leave a message if we don't pick up, the online scheduler is currently offline
To provide a safe work environment and to keep you and your family safe, we are not coming into your home, currently only seeing animals in a private outdoor space (at your home).
We also require a face fitting mask that needs to remain on for anyone who is going to be present at the appointment and we require a maintained distance of 6 feet between BPMV staff and you (our beloved clients). (both to comply with current state regulations and based on current science). We recognize this is not optimal, we are all living through this pandemic together and want to continue to provide this compassionate service. Talk with us about options.
We are not taking new palliative patients at this time, however, if you feel you need a quality of life consultation prior to a euthanasia appointment, we are offering telehealth appointments. Telehealth appointments are meant to provide a conversation about quality of life and decision making, we cannot prescribe medication or change your current medication unless we have seen your pet prior. However, we will work with your veterinarian to help them adjust or add medications. Please mention if you would like this service.
Thank you for giving your beloveds a loving home and stay safe during this difficult time.
