Home Hospice Care (Pawspice)
Home Hospice Care for Dogs & Cats (Pawspice)
Modeled after human hospice care, veterinary hospice focuses on maintaining comfort and quality of life, following a pet’s diagnosis with an incurable disease or after a family’s decision not to pursue further treatment of a life-threatening illness. In addition to providing comfort-oriented care, Capital Home Veterinary Care also focus on educating pet owners and their families about keeping their pets comfortable and what they should expect during the final months, weeks or days of a pet’s life.
