If it is not the right time, hospice care can help maintain the best quality of life possible for your pet in his/her declining period. Limited appointments are available for hospice care. During a hospice evaluation appointment, Dr. Leone will formulate a plan for the individualized care of your pet, and the caregiver will be educated to provide as much of the supportive care as possible.
Factors such as species, concurrent diseases, physical limitations, personality and the family dynamic are considerations in the formulation of a hospice care plan. Periodic visits by Dr. Leone or a qualified veterinary technician may be necessary for monitoring or more technical treatments.
