Today being National Pet Hospice Day, we felt it would be appropriate to announce Encina’s newest service: Hospice and In Home Care!
The focus of our pet hospice program is to make a pet’s last stage of life more pleasant with the proper use of pain medications, dietary strategies and veterinary care provided by our registered veterinary technician, Barbara. The goal of pet hospice is not to cure your pet’s illness but rather to ensure a peaceful end-of-life experience. Alongside your veterinarian here at Encina, Barbara will work closely with you and your pet to decide what is best for your beloved pet in the comfort of your own home.
Our in-home care is geared towards pets who aren’t terminal, but need some assistance at home. Your pet may be recuperating from surgery, recently paralyzed or need at home fluids/injections; these are a few of the reasons why one might elect in-home care.
