We are all pet owners ourselves, we know how you feel and empathize with you. We offer both comfort and CARE to you and your pet so you are confident and comfortable entrusting your pet with us. We encourage your involvement and we will keep you updated with your pet’s condition as they change, either from one of our veterinarians or one of our dedicated staff members. Unlike many facilities, we encourage and welcome your visits when they are convenient to you. We recognize the importance of the human animal bond and how visiting convalescing patients benefit from spending time with their owners to help increase their hospitalization time and encourage and healing. Many patients will eat more readily and perk up when they have seen and spent time with their owners. So please feel free to visit at your convenience.

Any patients requiring advanced procedures once stabilized will receive a full consultation to

Palliative, Hospice and End of Life Care
Everyone asks which part of veterinary medicine is the most difficult. While so many aspects of veterinary medicine has its challenges, when it comes to palliative, hospice and end of life services, many times it is these components. We hire staff members who are empathetic and comforting. These are qualities that cannot be taught and resonate from within. No one wants to say good bye to any loved one, human or animal. But being surrounded by skilled, compassionate and caring individuals certainly helps the transition. We are here to provide comfort when you and your pet needs it the most.
Whether it is to augment an active treatment plan, adjust pain medication, or administer fluids, we are here. If it is time for your pet to make their final transition, we will be here. What is most important is comfort. Your pet’s comfort and your decision to proceed as well. We will help guide you and offer recommendations, but you are in full control and you must feel completely comfortable with your decision. Allow us to help assist you during the most difficult and most important decision you may be faced with.
