End of Life Care
While it’s never easy to lose a beloved pet, it’s important to be watchful for signs of declining quality of life. Your veterinarian and our staff will be available to answer any questions you may have to help ease your concerns. Working together, we will make a plan for appropriate end-of-life care for your pet (i.e., palliative care, hospice, euthanasia).
To make an appointment to discuss, please call us at (623) 584-8160.
The time you’ve invested in being a responsible pet owner is well worth it – you can thank your pet for the years of love and laughter by letting them go in a loving, caring and peaceful environment.
We will be with you and your pet every step of the way.
