Compassionate End-of-Life Care for Your Special Pets

end of life care

A decision for euthanasia is never an easy one, but it is often the most compassionate choice for the elderly, terminally ill, or injured pet. At Peninsula Center Pet Hospital, we make every effort to help you through this most difficult time.

Palliative Care: When the End Is Near

When primary therapy is no longer appropriate, we devote ourselves to relieving pain and providing comfort to your pets through palliative care. Available treatments may include medical intervention, drugs, fluid support, and nutritional supplementation. Laser therapy and massage may be recommended for comfort. Most often, a combination of therapies is used to make the final days of your pet’s life as pain free as possible.

If you wish to keep your pet at home during this time, we offer hospice services and house calls, phone access, and compassionate pain management. When pain can no longer be managed and suffering is imminent, we offer in-home euthanasia for those who desire this service.

A Dignified Farewell

For after care, we use Cal Pet Crematory, dedicated to serving the needs of pet owners and their beloved pets. Cal Pet offers individual pet cremations and unique urns.

Dr. Herrera and her staff have been so good to my grandmother and her dogs for the past 15 plus years. During the last days of one of her dogs, Dr. Peggy stayed with him even on the weekend before he passed to care for him and make him comfortable. And when grandma could no longer care for her last pup, Dr. Peggy kept him for her and adopted him out to a good home. There is not that many vets out there that would take the time to help an old lady find a loving home for their pet, but Dr. Peggy is special and cares about her patients. Dr. Herrera is TOPS in my book. Thanks for taking care of my grandma.
