PAWSPICE AND END-OF-LIFE SERVICES
“Pawspice” Care – Hospice Care For Dogs & Other Pets
After evaluation of your pet’s individual circumstances, a well-conceptualized and creative plan for palliative care for dogs and other pets will be created. This home centered, veterinarian supported plan will allow your pet the best quality of life possible.
Creating quality of life in the final days
Our team will work together with you to evaluate your pet’s quality of life by measuring several parameters including: Hurt, Hydration, Hunger, Hygiene, Happiness, Mobility and More Good Days Than Bad Days. Each parameter is measured from zero to 10. The goal with Pawspice is to evaluate each parameter and try to alleviate each problem by at least 30-50%.
Pet Euthanasia At Home
When efforts to prolong the life of a beloved pet serve only to prolong death, euthanasia (Greek for “good death”) should be considered. Our mobile vets will counsel you and your family through this difficult yet compassionate decision. Home euthanasia relieves the anxiety your pet would feel during a visit to the vet’s office, allows the family to grieve freely at home and comfort each other, and allows you to create a private way of honoring and saying goodbye to your pet in those last moments.
Deciding how to care for your pet after death is also an individual decision. We offer several options to help meet your needs:
- Home burial
- Burial at a pet cemetery
- Pet Cremation
In all cases, we will do everything possible to accommodate your final wishes for your pet.
We are proud to work with Hamilton Pet Meadows for after care needs including pet cremation, private viewings/ funerals, and cemetery burial. Regardless of the option you choose, we can arrange to have a clay paw print made for you.
