Pet Hospice Care
No Pet should experience Pain or Fear, Hunger or Thirst, Heat or Cold,
suffer Dehydration or any other condition. No sick, elderly, or terminally
ill Pet should suffer for lack of proper care.
Animalis Veterinary Health Care Team provides compassionate
End-of-Life Care for Pets and emotional support and education
for Families in their own homes.
Quality of Life Consultation
Before the Pet enters our End-of-Life Care Program, a Quality of Life Consultation must be scheduled. It comprises of an initial Physical Exam, Diagnostics and Recommendations.
Once the Pet is enrolled in the Program, periodic Quality of Life consultations, Monitoring, Recommendations and Assistance are provided when needed.
Tailored Plans are prescribed and adjusted to the individual needs of your Pet and Family.
Plans may include: Medications, Supplements and adequate Diet, Physical Therapy, Hygienic Grooming, Bath, advice on Orthopedic Beds, Slings, Carts, etc.
Continuous assistance and counseling is offered throughout this process, enabling the Family to care for their Pet's medical and emotional needs in their own home.
When the time comes that the Quality of Life of your Pet has reached a point of more bad days than good days, Animalis Veterinary House Call Services will come to your home to provide a gentle, peaceful and compassionate way for your beloved Pet to pass with dignity, while allowing the Family to grieve in privacy.
Saying good-bye to a beloved Pet is one of the most difficult situations a Pet owner will ever encounter, but trying to decide when it is time to say good-bye can be even more difficult. There are times when all the capabilities of medical science have been exhausted and euthanasia is the only way to prevent an animal from suffering needlessly. However, the decision regarding when to euthanize is fraught with medical, financial, ethical, religious, moral, and sometimes legal considerations.Private
Euthanasia is therefore a medical procedure that needs to be discussed and considered thoroughly before a final decision is made. This is a difficult conversation, but we are here to help answer all your questions, and guide you through this process.
Animalis Euthanasia Policy
We at Animalis are committed to the principle of “Do No Harm.” Therefore, we will ONLY perform Euthanasia on Pets who have an unmanageable disease or those with little or no quality of life remaining.
Pet’s enrolled in the Animalis End-of-Life Care Program:
At home euthanasia is provided primarily to those clients enrolled in the End-of-Life Care Program. A good veterinarian-client relationship is essential to resolve the euthanasia option, having the Pet’s best interests in mind.
We at Animalis reserve the right to refuse to perform Euthanasia. We do not judge anyone for opting for this service, and we will not be offended if the Client seeks this service elsewhere. There are many considerations regarding the decision of euthanizing: medical, financial, ethical, religious, moral, and legal. Both sides (The Pet Owner and the Veterinary Health Care Team) must be in accordance.
Pets not enrolled in the Animalis End-of-Life Care Program:
New or Referred Patients seeking this service must know that Quality of Life Examinations will be performed prior to scheduling euthanasia; including diagnostics and procedures to determine whether it is indeed the proper option. We at Animalis reserve the right to refuse to perform Euthanasia, if we deem so. Charges will apply to any services provided.
Cremation services and general care of remains are available.
