We are still assisting families during the coronavirus pandemic. We are reducing the number of appointments per day to allow for sanitizing/changing out everything between appointments. We are limiting our services to virtual quality of life consultations and house call euthanasia at this time. In-home hospice appointments are unavailable until further notice. We are currently fielding triple our usual volume of appointment requests. Please contact us as soon as possible so we can get you on the schedule a day or two ahead of time. Thank you and please stay safe.
Time is nothing if it’s spent suffering. We want quality time over quantity of time – ALWAYS. Your entire household should participate in evaluating your pet’s QOL. This is an emotional situation – you can’t expect to be accurate or unbiased. Get help from your friends, family and veterinary team!
Basic Quality of Life Scale:
1. We want them eating
2. We don’t want them vomiting
3. We want them clean and dry
4. We don’t want them in pain
5. We don’t want them anxious or afraid
6. They need to still love and hate all the things they usually love and hate
7. They need to have more good days than bad.
If your pet is missing any of these, we need to act – either to relieve their discomfort or to help them pass away. Remember, there is always something we can do!
