“Our veterinarians can help inform the decision to choose between ever intensifying medical treatment, hospice care or euthanasia” says Dr. Craig J. Mohnacky, owner and CEO. Dr. Mohnacky continues to add, “We will work with each pet’s owner to explore all the options and their consequences – ethical, medical and financial - as a part of the decision making process. Hospice care can provide the family more time with their ill pet and help the family adjust to the pet’s approaching death”. Dr. Mohnacky concludes that “Hospice can allow the pet to enjoy the last days of life in familiar surroundings in the company of loved ones.”
Our customized care options help transition patients from standard to palliative to hospice care. Hospice begins at diagnosis and offers a combination of standard, palliative and hospice care options for life-limiting diseases by focusing on pain management and minimizing the impact of adverse events.
“The ability to expand the owner’s choices for End-of-Life for their pet was the motivation behind developing this unique offering” says Dr. Mohnacky. “Our industry has generally overlooked this option and we wanted to fill that gap and be a resource to our clients when they may need us the most” Dr. Mohnacky added.
