What is Pet Hospice Care?

Pet hospice care focuses on managing your pet's comfort and quality of life as they near the end of their journey. It involves closely monitoring their health, managing pain, and making their remaining time as peaceful and comfortable as possible.

Hospice Services We Provide

Our pet hospice services include:

  • Subcutaneous fluids to ensure your pet stays hydrated and comfortable

  • Pain Management in the form of oral or injectable pain medications tailored to your pet's needs

  • Nutritional support, including syringe feeding to help maintain your pet’s strength

  • Education and support to guide you and your family through this difficult time

Cat and Dog Euthanasia:
A Peaceful Farewell

Deciding on euthanasia for your pet isn’t something you have to do alone. We encourage you to ask us any questions you have so you fully understand what to expect and can confidently decide whether euthanasia is the most compassionate step forward for your pet. When you and your family are ready, we can help you schedule an appointment with us at our hospital in Virginia Beach, or you can arrange to have a traveling vet come to you to perform an in-home euthanasia.

At Independence Veterinary Hospital, we offer a serene environment where you can spend your final moments with your pet in a loving and peaceful setting.

In-House and In-Home Pet Euthanasia Services

If your pet is a long-time patient of ours, perhaps you would prefer to have their lifelong vet perform the euthanasia procedure. But if you would feel more comfortable about doing the procedure at home, we can collaborate with local services to have a caring vet come to you.

Pet Cremation and Keepsakes

For pet cremation, our hospital partners with Agape Crematory. They provide private and communal cremation services with the greatest respect for every pet and family. In addition, to honor your pet’s memory, Agape can also provide:

  • Nose and paw prints (keepsakes created at our hospital at no cost)

  • A personalized urn to hold your pet’s ashes

  • Hair clippings

At Independence Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to providing a compassionate, supportive environment for you and your pet during this challenging time. Our team is here to ensure your pet's final days are filled with dignity and love.
