Virtual Care

Quality of Life Assessments

Quality of Life consultations are helpful when trying to determine when euthanasia should be considered or if other supportive options are available.

Distance no longer matters. Our Telehealth platform allows you to connect with our doctors and nurses, no matter where you live.

Knowing if quality of life remains for your pet is not always clear or easy. Our consultations provide the time needed to discuss your pet's quality of life in a supportive and non-hurried and manner.

We take into consideration your goals while helping you navigate the complex decisions you are faced with.

We provide the same level of compassion and support with our virtual care as we do our at-home care.

We understand the special nuances that virtual care requires.

PetHospice has been providing virtual care focused on quality of life and end of life since 2017, and our team has led the way for others in veterinary medicine.

Our virtual Quality of Life consults are 90-minutes in length and can be scheduled with either our hospice vet or nurse, depending on your needs (see our FAQ below).

Our comprehensive consultations will address your pet's current care and quality of life in a way that is holistic and complete, so you can make informed decisions.
