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 LOVES the animals that she takes care of! A senior cattle dog had been taken to Dr. Herrera to be euthanized, and she would NOT do it! There was no reason for this dog to be euthanized and Dr. Herrera chose to take responsibility for this senior girl instead. She took care of her for a month while trying to find a foster parent. I became the foster parent! And I thank Dr. Herrera everyday for allowing me to become the mom to an amazing senior cattle dog who became my dog and who I loved until her final day! -Penny Sprague
