“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.”
