In Home End of Life and Comfort Care
Lovingkindness Veterinary Care
A pet's end of life can be a confusing and stressful time for families. There are many changes, often multiple health problems, and it can be so hard to know what is really best for your pet. What would they want if they could talk to us? How can we make sure their golden years truly shine? We bring our years of experience and advanced training in pain management and comfort care, behavior, and hospice and palliative care to help you navigate your pet's end of life journey.
Your needs and your pet's condition are truly unique, and their care should be just as individualized and special. By providing in home care that is personalized to your needs and responsive to the changing needs of your pet, we partner with you to provide low stress, integrative, and gentle care for your beloved furry family member.
We provide in home end of life care, including euthanasia, hospice, pain management, acupuncture, and geriatric care to most of the greater Richmond area. If you live outside of the service area, we will do our best to accommodate you. Please call or email to get an estimate of our travel fee.
