When the goal of a pet’s medical treatment shifts from pursuing a cure to providing comfort, pet owners may consider caring for a companion animal at home – with help from a pet hospice program. Hospice care is for pets that have three months or less to live. It emphasizes pain management and end-of-life care in the comfort of home.
We love our animals and, for many of us, our pets are part of our families. When our pets become ill or are aging, we are often faced with one of the most difficult decisions—an end-of-life decision. Defining quality of life for you and for them is imperative in making this decision. This webinar is designed to empower you in making the right decision for your pet and for your family.
