Hospice Care


The end-of-life journey with your beloved can be a difficult, yet precious, time together.  We can walk alongside you and your family during this journey, showing you a path that focusses on living every moment to the fullest, in as much comfort as possible, for all of you. 

 

We can guide you through the difficult decision making process, following the path of 'least regrets', and helping you to understand when your pet is telling you that they are ready to let go.

 

As your journey together nears it's final destination, we can help to understand what to expect, support your pet with honor and comfort and meaning.

Words can't express the gratitude we have for the extra time of joy you have given to our family.  The shocking discovery of a massive tumor in our dear Shadow was unimaginable.

 

And while others may have counselled an immediate same-day euthanasia, the supportive symptom care you provided to him blessed our family with more precious moments of joy and play and walks and fetch, and many hugs and kisses and extra hours of snuggle time.  It also provided us with a period of time to more readily come to terms with our impending loss and to honor the final steps of our journey together.

 

In the end, Shadow was able to say Goodbye on his own terms. Having you by our side during those last weeks to guide us, knowing that even through the grief we were clearly walking the path of least regrets, was a truly a most beautiful gift.

 

You and your family are not alone.  We are here for you.
