Quality of Life Assessment and Counseling
Discussions about the level of care that you can provide, given your pet's illness, while maintaining the human-animal bond and quality of life are important to have and revisit periodically. Sometimes it can feel very overwhelming to be making decisions about care, knowing what to do to best support your beloved pet and knowing when quality of life has decreased so much that there are more bad days than good days.
Some simple changes in the home environment can help your pet maintain independence, interaction and connection with the family; stay clean and comfortable with proper bedding; have easy access to necessities including food, water and elimination areas; have help and support with mobility issues; have adequate pain control; have mental stimulation to avoid feeling isolated, depressed, frustrated or anxious.
