End of Life Care

Compassionate, tender, and dignified.

Senior Pet Care Aids

There are options to facilitate the care of senior pets.  For pets with mobility issues, a local company provides a variety of mobility aids, from wheelchairs to slings.  You can find them at www.handicappedpets.com.  You can also search online to find a variety of other aids, from slings to no-slip socks.  Sometimes these aids can make a huge difference in making it easier to care for senior pets.

In-Home Pet Hospice Care

Your pet’s own veterinarian can help you with many aspects of end-of-life care, such as helping you understand the progression of a particular disease, and discussing appropriate pain control. However, if you desire it, Dr. Sernik can come to your house, meet your pet, look at your pet’s medical records, and consult with your veterinarian.  She can help you come up with a plan to keep your pet comfortable, clean, and hydrated, as well as working with you to minimize discomfort as much as possible.  Dr. Sernik can also help you plan for when the time comes to say goodbye.
