HOSPICE CARE

Hospice Care for animalsDr Lewter says, “I believe each pet is a special angel with lessons for us. Sometimes they teach us on a daily basis and sometimes we do not recognize those lessons until long after the pet has departed.”
                                                        

Animal hospice care subscribes to the philosophy that pets deserve to pass on with dignity and with the loving care they deserve. After a lifetime of unconditional love for us, it is the least we can do for them. When your companion reaches the end of life, we offer insight and ideas for treating this valued member of your family with dignity to the very end.  Dr. Lewter will make home visits so the animal does not have to travel .

There is help for pain, incontinence and immobility. Nutritional management becomes a new challenge, and we are there to help. Patient comfort becomes a primary concern and hospice for animals offers help. If suffering is uncontrollable, sedation and euthanasia may be done right at home. Veterinary hospice offers palliative care for the terminally ill patient, while focusing on quality of life and emotional support for the entire family.
