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.
Technology with touch.
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.
The goals of our consult are:
Help you assess your pet's current level of pain, quality of life, and if more options are available
Help you understand what is happening to your pet
Help you determine when to make the decision of euthanasia and share how to best plan for the timing of it
Help prepare you for letting go and guide you with what to expect during the euthanasia process
Share how to help other pets or children in the home prepare for loss
Offer additional guidance to help improve your pet's quality of life, such as tips for giving medications, how to encourage eating, and environmental changes to further support your pet
