End-of-Life Pet Care: Staying Sensitive to You and Your Pet
Pets live their lives giving us unconditional love day-in and day-out, which makes it all the more difficult to say goodbye. At Fayetteville Veterinary Hospital, we understand how much your pet means to you because our pets mean the same to us. When your four-legged friend nears the end, we will be with you every step of the way. Most importantly, we stay sensitive to both of your needs, offering comprehensive end-of-life services, including decision counseling, palliative care, and memorials.
Improving Quality of Life Through Palliative Care
If your pet is diagnosed with a terminal illness or is simply struggling from advanced age, palliative care can greatly improve and prolong their quality of life. Some of the palliative care we may recommend includes:
- Nutritional supplements
- Anti-nausea medication
- Appetite stimulants
- Antidiarrheal medication
- Home hospice care techniques
We will work to find the right palliative care to suit your pet’s needs. Schedule a visit with us to learn more.
My dog is VERY energetic!! The staff and doctors are understanding, friendly and caring. They take time to explain everything throughly. My dog is happy to go for appointments.
Pet Euthanasia Services
When you feel the time is right to say goodbye, we will be here to discuss this difficult decision with you privately. No two pets are the same and each situation is different. Unfortunately, this never makes pet euthanasia any easier. Take time to make your decision, but remember that euthanasia can alleviate suffering and allows your pet to retain their dignity. Additionally, home euthanasia is an option for appropriate cases. Ask us for more details.
When the time comes, we help to honor your pet with a clay paw print mold for you to keep in remembrance. This service is offered at no additional charge. If you need, we also can make recommendations for the care of their remains. Please contact us for more information and we will answer any questions or concerns you have.
