Helping to make the end of life as meaningful as the rest.

Hospice Consult

We will come to your home, review medical records, perform a physical exam, assess quality of life, assess your home environment, and help your family to formulate a plan for care. We provide detailed instructions and a summary of all we discuss and a plan for follow up and monitoring. We will be there to help make sure these precious days with your pet are the best they can be, adjusting our care and plan as conditions change.


What is involved in a hospice consult?

  • Our doctor, certified in hospice and palliative care, will come to your home and perform a comprehensive physical exam to assess your pet's condition and quality of life

  • The first month of medical management and adjustments to treatment plan as needed

  • Prescribing and dispensing of medications that may improve quality of life and a comfort kit for use in a crisis (medications are an additional cost)

  • Communication by email, text, or phone as needed during our call times (8 am-8 pm) 7 days a week.

  • Communication with your regular veterinarian and any other veterinarians involved in treatment or care to insure integrated, cooperative care for your family and pet

  • Follow up visits may be needed, and are an additional charge, but we will make every effort to come to your home within 12 hours of a request for a follow up visit

  • Standard appointment times are for 2 hours, but more time can be scheduled if needed.

  • After 1 month, you can continue our hospice relationship for 100$/month.
