End of Life Care:
As medicine advances so does the life expectancy of our companions. That is why it is important to recognize the signs of pain. If you think your pet is experiencing chronic pain, please refer to the following guide from the American Animal Hospital Association:
Behavioral changes are often written off as "just old age". Many symptoms are treatable. To help your veterinarian better assess your senior pet's behavioral changes, please refer to the Senior Behavior Screen under Patient Forms.
Saying goodbye is never easy. Saying it to a friend who has loved you unconditionally for many years is even harder. Those of us who work in animal health understand the difficulty of making this decision. We are not here to judge or push and will only seek to keep our patients comfortable and help you through this difficult time.
