Hospice and End of Life Care

Pet Hospice Care: Providing Comfort and Compassion for Your Beloved Companion in Your Own Home

We understand that facing the end-of-life stage with your cherished pet can be an emotional and challenging experience. At Chapel Fell Veterinary Services we aim to provide compassionate and specialised care to ensure your pet's comfort and dignity during this sensitive time. We aim to work with your local practice wherever possible to provide continuity of care for your pet at all times. 

What is Pet Hospice Care?

Pet hospice care focuses on enhancing the quality of life for pets with terminal illnesses or those in the advanced stages of ageing. We aim to alleviate or minimise pain, manage symptoms, and provide emotional support to both pets and their owners. Our mission is to ensure that your pet's final days are filled with love, comfort, and peace.

Our Approach to Pet Hospice Care

1. Personalised Care Plans

We believe in tailoring our care to the unique needs of each individual pet. We work closely with you to create a customised care plan that addresses your pet's specific requirements.

2. Pain Management and Comfort

We prioritise your pet's comfort above all else. A comprehensive pain management strategy is key to minimise discomfort and promote a sense of ease, allowing your pet to enjoy their remaining time with you.

3. Emotional Support

We understand the emotional toll that end-of-life care can have on pet owners. We are here to provide you with the support and guidance you need during this difficult period. We're committed to ensuring that you and your pet feel cared for and understood.

4. Open Communication

Clear and honest communication is essential. We will keep you informed about your pet's condition, treatment options, and any changes in their health. Your input and preferences are highly valued and will be incorporated into the care plan.

Making Informed Decisions

We understand that deciding on hospice care for your pet is a significant choice. We're here to provide you with all the information you need to make informed decisions about your pet's well-being. We will discuss treatment options, potential outcomes, and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Honouring Your Pet's Legacy

Your pet's legacy is an important part of their journey. We can provide guidance on aftercare options, including cremation or burial. We work with a number of highly experience cremation companies locally. We carefully choose cremation companies we know will care for your pet with compassion and dignity.
