“Live your life. Live your life. Live your life.”
What to Expect in a Quality of Life Assessment Visit
This appointment will allow us to meet you face-to-face over Zoom, where we can safely have an in-depth conversation discussing your pet’s condition, your concerns, goals, hopes, and expectations. We will help you to identify signs of pain and discomfort. We will review your pet’s medical history if available, discuss the expected progression of their disease, and potential complications and treatment options for managing any signs of discomfort you may be seeing. We discuss natural death and what we would expect, as well as the euthanasia process if indicated. We do NOT perform a physical exam or make any medical recommendations, diagnoses, or prescribe medications during this type of consult. After the virtual consult, you may choose to schedule an in-home visit to allow our doctor to perform a physical exam and provide medications, acupuncture, and ongoing management and care for you and your pet if you wish.
