Hospice Care

We make sure these precious days with your pet are the best they can be.

Lovingkind Hospice Consult

Helping to make the end of life as meaningful as the rest.

We will come to your home, review medical records, perform a physical exam, assess the quality of life, assess your home environment, and help your family to formulate a plan for care. We provide detailed instructions and a summary of all we discuss and a plan for follow-up and monitoring. We will be there to help make sure these precious days with your pet are the best they can be, adjusting our care and plan as conditions change.

In the comfort of our own home, surrounded by our loved ones, is where most of us would wish to take our last breaths. We can help to provide a gentle and unrushed, peaceful home euthanasia for your pet when the time comes to say goodbye.

What is involved in hospice care?

  • Our doctor, certified in hospice and palliative care, will come to your home and perform a comprehensive physical exam to assess your pet’s condition and quality of life.
  • The first month of medical management and adjustments to the treatment plan as needed
  • Prescribing and dispensing of medications that may improve quality of life and a comfort kit for use in a crisis (medications are an additional cost)
  • Communication by email, text, or phone as needed during our call times (8 am to 8 pm) seven days a week.
  • Communication with your regular veterinarian and any other veterinarians involved in treatment or care to ensure integrated, cooperative care for your family and pet
  • Follow-up visits may be needed and are an additional charge, but we will make every effort to come to your home within 12 hours of a request for a follow-up visit.
  • New patients may schedule a virtual (online) QOL consult prior to scheduling their first in-home visit. All in-home care with our doctor is $142 per hour plus travel fee.
