Our pets age much more quickly than we do. As they grow older, the purpose of the care we give them eventually shifts from prevention to comfort. When a pet has been diagnosed with an incurable illness, care focuses on maintaining a high quality of life for your pet during his or her final months, weeks or days and for your pet’s last moments.
Managing your pet’s end of life care and determining the appropriate time for euthanasia involve the most difficult decisions you will make regarding your pet’s care. Euthanasia literally means “good death,” and using it allows your pet to come to the end of his or her life without suffering unnecessary pain. Our professionals with Desert Paws Mobile Veterinary Care will be with you and your pet during every stage and decision of your pet’s aging process.
