What is a Quality-of-Life Evaluation?
Having to make end-of-life decisions for a beloved pet can feel extremely overwhelming. For this appointment, a Restful Paws veterinarian will visit your home to assess your pet’s condition and discuss your quality-of-life concerns. We will provide tools for you to monitor your dog or cat’s symptoms and talk about possible changes to expect going forward. Our veterinarians will also be able to help you with difficult end-of-life decisions such as when to euthanize. We can also address any questions or concerns you have about the end-of-life process. Just so you are prepared, a typical Quality of Life appointment lasts for up to 1 hour. It is very important for you to know that we will not discuss your pet’s medical plan or adjust/prescribe any of his or her medications. If this is a service you are looking for, we recommend working with your regular veterinarian or hospice care.
