Palliative, Hospice, and End-of-Life Care

Losing a pet can be one of the most emotional and challenging aspects of owning a pet. Royal Oak Pet Clinic knows the importance of care, comfort and respect required during this difficult time.

Our dedicated veterinarians will work with you to provide gentle, pain-free, palliative and hospice care for your pet, as long as possible. Hospice exists to provide support and care during the last phases of life and begins with formulating an individualized plan based on your pet’s diagnosis, prognosis, and available treatment options. Royal Oak Pet Clinic is expanding their education in palliative and hospice care through the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care to better provide these services to the community.
