Hospice Care and End of Life Services

We understand that the decisions you will be faced with at the end of your pet's life can be very difficult. We strive to make this process as easy as possible for you and your pet. We offer the following services to make your pet's end of life as comfortable as possible.This service is designed to help you decide if the time is right to euthanize. A full examination will help determine his or her quality of life. At that point, we will come up with a customized treatment plan to help you best care for your pet. This often includes treatments you can administer at home to make your pet as comfortable as possible. If you need follow up care with your pet, our staff can work with you in order to best fit your needs. 



We try our best to perform this service whenever it is most convenient for you. We have a special, quiet room designated for this time. Your pet will be given a sedative in order to calm and relax them, making the process pain free. You are welcome to be with your pet for the entire process, or as long as you feel comfortable. Afterwards, you may stay with your pet as long as desired. We offer cremation services though Heartland Pet Cremation with the option of the return of ashes.
