Palliative care

Palliative care is a holistic approach catering to all end of life dogs.  I focus on relief of pain, stress management, and retention of quality of life – your veterinarian will often prescribe medications as the start to your dog’s palliative care programme.

Saying goodbye is never easy and we all want the best for our dogs.  I support my human clients with information on quality of life and have developed a quality of life questionnaire to help owners make decisions about euthanasia.
