(We're sorry, We do not provide service outside of North Carolina)
Early in my veterinary career, I recognized the value of this service on a personal level with my own pet, Cooper. Cooper was the most lovable Boxer/Lab Mix who brought smiles to everyone she met. But Cooper was such an anxious dog in the car and even more anxious at the veterinary clinic. Through hospice care we helped to keep her comfortable and to maintain her "activities of daily living" at home. However, as her mobility declined and she began to have more bad days than good ones, it became obvious that her quality of life was no longer acceptable. We chose to help her make the transition in her place of comfort, at home and surrounded by the people who loved her. It was such a blessing to see Cooper pass peacefully on her own bed in our arms that I became a strong advocate of in-home pet hospice & euthanasia. We celebrate Cooper's wonderful life and offer this service in honor of her and our other pets who have meant so much to us through the years.

“Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.”
