Heartstrings Believes

Our pets hold a special place as our closest companions. They uplift us during difficult times, and their unwavering presence is a constant source of comfort. It is for these reasons that we firmly believe pets should have a serene and individualized end-of-life journey. This is why we assist them in departing from this world on their terms—surrounded by the familiar comforts of their homes and the loving embrace of their cherished human companions. Because pets are regarded as part of the family. That is the driving force behind our commitment.

Why choose a Heartstrings Veterinarian

Veterinarians dedicated to veterinary hospice and euthanasia are people who hold an immeasurable amount of dedication. While it's not without challenges, our motivation stems from the belief that pets are family - and this inspires us to honor this huge responsibility with the utmost dedication and compassion that any other family member would receive.

“Pets are family and it’s an honor to be given this responsibility because it’s not just a career – it’s our passion.”

What is hospice and how can it benefit our family pets?

Veterinary hospice for dogs and cats represents a family-centered, medically supervised, and collaborative service that is dedicated to preserving the comfort and quality of life for terminally ill or elderly pets until they naturally pass away or until the family decides on euthanasia.

Originally inspired by human hospice care, this specialized form of support places a strong emphasis on ensuring your pet's comfort, rather than seeking a cure for their illness or ailment.

Veterinary hospice care offers a distinctive approach to meeting your pet's end-of-life needs. This approach is centered on effectively managing symptoms and maximizing their well-being for as long as possible.

Our primary objective is to sustain the emotional bond between humans and their animal companions while imparting knowledge on providing palliative care.

It's important to note that veterinary hospice appointments are arranged based on need and do not encompass routine care (such as daily or weekly visits), blood work, or diagnostic procedures.
