Veterinary Hospice & End Of Life Services

Knowing when the time is right can be a difficult choice. There are many factors that go into deciding to euthanize a pet, and it is a personal issue that differs from pet owner to pet owner. But every pet owner is inevitably faced with making that tough decision, and we want to be there alongside you to aid in any way we can.

At Companion Pet Hospital you can stay with your beloved family member for the final goodbye while they cross the Rainbow Bridge. Our procedures are the most loving and dignified available.

We are committed to making the process as easy as it can be. We are compassionate, empathetic, and non-judgmental. As veterinarians, we understand the progression of diseases and the suffering that is usually inevitable. We will assist you in making the decision that is best for your pet and ultimately for your family.

Our team strives to help animals experience terminal illness and the dying process with dignity and comfort. Contact us to learn more about our hospice and end of life services.
