Less stress for
Making the Decision
Deciding if it is the right time to euthanize your pet is one of the most difficult decisions pet owners can face. I will do my best to help you with that process.
A good place to start is a Quality of Life scale such as this one from pawspice.com:
Home Pet Hospice
Hospice care is focused on keeping your pet as comfortable as possible during the end of life stages.
Services may include:
pain and anxiety management
nutritional or hydration support
assisted natural death or in-home euthanasia
Avoids stress of going to the veterinarian’s office in their final days and provides end of life care in the comfort of their own home.
When it is clear that your pets quality of life has diminished and it is time to say good bye, I will walk you through the process and answer all your questions. Euthanasia occurs after I administer a sedative to ensure a comfortable quiet goodbye. Cremation options available.
My name is Dr. Susan Meier and I’ve been practicing veterinary medicine for 15 years. I started this pet hospice business to provide clients the opportunity to participate in the decision making about their pet’s needs, have the time to say goodbye to their companions, and to plan for their death.
Why at-home euthanasia?
Senior pets can have reduced vision or hearing, they may be more painful or simply more anxious about going to the vet. By coming to the house, I feel the family and the pet are more comfortable and relaxed. The family can have privacy and their pet can be on a favorite sofa cushion or outside in the yard.
