What to expect for a palliative appointment?

You want the best quality of life for your beloved pet as they go through their disease, and our palliative veterinarians can guide you to achieve your goals of care.  We listen.  Palliative medicine is about helping your beloved pet live their best life as they are declining due to disease.  This is a medical appointment.

Starting palliative care early in their disease or even when you notice they start to slow down can improve their life.  Our appointment will involve an in-depth conversation with you and your pet to assess their needs and develop a customized plan to manage their condition best.

Our palliative appointments begin with discussing what is going on with your beloved pet and progress to your needs and concerns and include: 

  • A daily plan

  • A crisis plan

  • Tools including pain and symptom management, behavioral and environmental modification

  • Apps that may help you manage and track specific issues

  • Thirty-five pages of information including chronic pain, unique ideas for medication giving, imminent death and more.

  • Prescribing medication

  • Guidance specific to your pet and your family

We walk this journey together and create a daily and crisis plan to empower you in your beloved pet's care. We offer veterinary palliative care to help your pet live a comfortable life.

We are prepared to guide you in the journey to care for your beloved pet and support you in decisions right for you and them.

We help support your bond with your pet by empowering, educating, and supporting you.

Let's support your beloved pet together to help them live their best life!
