END-OF-LIFE CARE: QUALITY OF LIFE AND LIFE EXPECTANCY
Your dog or cat can live a long and happy life by your side. The secret is to ensure you are looking after their physical, emotional, and social wellbeing, even when they’re aging or sick. By listening to the advice provided by your veterinary team, you can learn ways to help ensure an easier and more enjoyable life for both you and your aging cat or dog.
QUALITY OF LIFE FOR AN OLD OR SICK PET
It’s better for your cat or dog to stay by your side, even when they’re old or ill. The love, shelter, and care you provide will help to ensure your pet’s physical, emotional, and social wellbeing are on track, and carry them through their final days.
The continued bond will provide benefits for you as well — your precious pet will still wait for your return from work, watch TV from the comfort of your lap, and purr to their heart’s content (and yours!).
We provide non-judgmental support through the aging process; we will monitor your pet and listen to you, andwe’ll make recommendations based on your and your pet’s needs to alleviate their symptoms and help them maintain the best possible quality of life. These may include:

PUTTING YOUR CAT OR DOG TO SLEEP: SUPPORT IN MAKING AN EMOTIONAL DECISION AND HANDLING GRIEF
If you decide or circumstances dictate that euthanasia is the best course of action, we’ll be there for you —every step of the way. We’ll help you make the difficult decision and guide you through the process. We know it’s not easy to say goodbye to your cat or dog. After all, they’ve been your constant companion for years—the welcome wagon that greets you at the door with a wagging tail or distinctive meow.
We understand how attached you are and how much pain, sorrow, and loss you’re feeling. We’ll be there to provide support and do everything we can to make the end-of-life process as easy as possible for both of you, whether you decide to be there or not. This is our profession and we do it because we truly care about the deep bond between animals and their humans — we know how much you love your pet. Mourning isn’t easy and you will likely experience the same stages of grief as when you lose a person who is dear to you, but you don’t have to go through it alone.
Losing an animal can be really hard. It’s normal for you to have difficulty coping with the grief.
