End of Life Care at Fairview Veterinary Hospital
At Fairview Veterinary Hospital, we are here to help you during this difficult time. Our staff will help you to make the right choices and provide comfort and understanding.
Honesty and Compassion
Our veterinary staff members are here to help you through your pet’s terminal illness, serious injury, or advanced age. Our staff members will be sure that you are aware of all available options and will help you make these difficult decisions for both you and your pet with honesty and compassion.
Comfort and Relief
Our primary goal in providing end of life care for your pet is to make sure they are comfortable and have as high a quality of life as possible. Current anti-inflammatory drugs, local anesthetics, and other medications can go a long way in relieving the pain your pet is experiencing.
Surgery, changes in diet and nutrition, and other alternative therapies can sometimes be combined with medication to provide comfort or extend the life of your pet.
In the most serious conditions, euthanasia or palliative care may be final options, but these require a lot of consideration. Our vets can help you understand if the time is right for these approaches.
Support and Humane Services
The choice is always difficult, but at Fairview, we believe that our patients are family. Rest assured, we will be there at your side until the very end, providing honest advice, comfort, and support. You can always count on us to help you through this tough time in your life.
