The end of your pet’s life is a difficult and stressful time. Deciding when to continue treatment and when to transition into end of life care is one of the most difficult choices you will make. Fortunately for all of us, the emerging field of veterinary hospice has stepped up to fill in the gap between the time the owners of a terminally ill pet elect to stop pursuing a cure and the pet’s passing.
In this concise ebook from Paws into Grace, veterinarians and hospice experts Elizabeth Benson and Jessica Vogelsang answer the following questions and more:
- What is pet hospice, exactly?
- Is my pet a candidate for hospice even if I don’t believe in
- How will I know if it’s the right time to say goodbye?
Saying goodbye is never easy, but knowing what to expect during this period can make a difficult time just a little bit less stressful. Hospice can help turn that fear of the unknown into peaceful acknowledgement of what is to come.
