Hospice Care

Hospice Care and Cat and Dog Euthanasia in Bloomfield Hills

When pets reach the end of their lives, whether it’s from a long life or an untimely terminal illness, it’s important to give them the comfort and care they deserve. At DePorre Veterinary Hospital, we offer end of life pet care including hospice care and cat and dog euthanasia. Our team of compassionate pet lovers is here to walk with you on this journey. We help you decide what is right for your pet and when it may be time to say goodbye.

Hospice Care

Hospice care for pets aims to make them as comfortable as possible so they can maintain their quality of life. Our pain management services include traditional medication, laser therapy, acupuncture, and herbal therapy, so your pet has a range of options. To determine the best options for your pet, please schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians

While hospice care is often effective, there are instances when it simply is not enough to maintain your pet’s quality of life. When they are in unrelenting discomfort and struggle to get around and perform basic tasks such as eating and eliminating, it may be time to consider euthanasia.

Cat and Dog Euthanasia

No one wants to say goodbye to a beloved companion, but sometimes it is the most humane thing to do. When your pet is no longer themselves and they struggle every day with pain and immobility, cat and dog euthanasia becomes an appropriate option. Our staff are here to walk you through an assessment of your pet’s condition, so you don’t have to make this hard decision on your own. We’ll evaluate their quality of life together and discuss any other options for end of life pet care. If your pet’s suffering outweighs any hospice care, we’ll decide on pet euthanasia.

A euthanasia procedure is peaceful and dignified for your pet. We administer the euthanasia in our hospital, and you are welcome to stay with your pet or leave the room if you prefer. The medicine works very quickly and your pet will not feel a thing. After the procedure, it’s best to have plans already in place for their after-care, whether burial or cremation. Please discuss these options with your family, and plan ahead so you don’t have to worry about the details on the day.

We pride ourselves on caring for pets throughout their lifetime, even though that sometimes means making the hard decisions with you.
