Pet Hospice & Palliative Care

Our veterinary team at Lock One Animal Hospital is here to work with you to ensure your terminally ill pet stays as comfortable as possible. Enjoy the best quality of life with whatever cherished time is left with your beloved companion.

Pet Hospice Care

Hospice care aims to meet the physical and mental needs of a pet faced with a life-limiting illness. It begins the moment a pet is diagnosed with a terminal condition and the family has decided not to pursue aggressive, curative therapies. Pet hospice focuses on caring, not curing. We understand that serious illness profoundly impacts not only the patient but the family as well. Our goal is to promote a caring community sensitive to the entire family’s needs, while also providing excellent care for a comfortable and full end of life.

Pet Palliative Care

When it becomes more apparent that your pet is ready to cross the rainbow bridge, our veterinary staff will do all we can to keep your pet comfortable in their final days. Our veterinarians will delicately discuss options for end-of-life care and help you reach the best decision for your companion and family. If your pet has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or is weak from old age but still able to live comfortably at home, palliative care may be an option. The goal of this care is to give them the best quality of life possible for their final days or weeks through the use of pain medication, special diets, symptom management, and human interaction.
