Hospice Care

Baja Dog Rescue is now offering dog hospice care, also known as palliative care, is an option if your pet is suffering from a terminal illness and a cure is not possible. The goal is to make a pet’s final days or weeks more pleasant with the proper use of pain medications, dietary strategies and human interaction. We will cook for your pet daily

Veterinary hospice for dogs and cats is a family-focused, medically supervised, team-oriented service that is dedicated to maintaining the comfort and quality of life for terminally ill or senior pets until a natural death occurs or the family elect’s euthanasia.

Originally modeled after human hospice, this specific type of care is focused on the comfort of your pet, not on finding a cure for their illness or disease. Please note that veterinary hospice appointments are scheduled as needed and does not include routine care (daily or weekly visits), any blood work, or diagnostic services. Our goal is to maintain the bond between humans and animals while focusing on comfort and education for families on providing palliative care.

Hearing the dreaded words “there’s nothing else we can do” doesn’t mean that your only option is euthanasia. Veterinary hospice care is a unique approach to the needs your pet has at the end of their life. This approach focuses specifically on managing symptoms and maintaining their happiness for as long as possible.
