Cat hospice care and end of life careCat hospice care and end of life care

For cats that are approaching end of life, cat families have several options. In all cases, the desire is for their beloved companion to spend his or her last days in dignity and free from pain while enjoying simple pleasures with the ones they love.

Your veterinarian at The Cat Practice will provide you with complete information on: 1) Hospice care, 2) Hospice care with euthanasia and 3) Euthanasia

Hospice care options
  1. Hospice care
    Hospice makes no attempt to prolong life or hasten death.
    The goal of hospice care is to keep pets as alert and pain-free as possible,
    allowing them to live their remaining days in comfort, in their own homes.

  2. Hospice care with euthanasia
    With hospice care, euthanasia is used only as a last resort when it becomes evident that your pet’s illness has progressed and is causing serious chronic pain or distress.

  3. Euthanasia
    In some cases, when a cat is suffering with little chance to alleviate pain or discomfort, euthanasia may be the most humane alternative. This would apply to cats that:

    • Have been seriously injured or maimed
    • Have a rapidly progressing illness that hampers breathing, swallowing or normal eating
    • Are unable to stand or move
