Your pet has been a part of your family, you’ve shared a long and happy life together, so when the time comes to part with them it’s a very painful and difficult experience.

Hospice Care At Home
It’s always best if possible for a pet to spend their last days at home surrounded by the people and things they know and love. If your pet has a terminal diagnosis, your Door 2 Door mobile vet will help you decide if palliative care is the right choice for your pet, and if so, prescribe the proper treatment to maintain your pet’s nutrition, hydration, body temperature, and mobility, and to help them be as comfortable as possible. Then we’ll make regular visits to your home to monitor their condition and provide ongoing care as needed, and when the time comes to make a decision, to help you determine what would be the best way to proceed.
At-Home Euthanasia Services
If the vet determines that palliative care isn’t recommended for your pet, or if your pet has stopped eating or is in constant pain, then it’s best to consider pet euthanasia. This is a simple procedure consisting of the vet putting them to sleep with an overdose of anesthetic, allowing them to pass painlessly and peacefully. You’ll be able to stay by their side to give them comfort during the entire process. Afterward, if you prefer, we can help you manage all the arrangements for burial or cremation or whatever you desire. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
