Excellent, Gentle Care During Serious Illness or Injury

We understand how difficult it is when your pet is terminally ill or has a serious illness or injury that requires round the clock or specialized care. The severity of the illness or injury requires not only a high degree of medical excellence but also gentleness and a full understanding of all that you and your pet are going through emotionally.

The TVH hospice program offers you more quality time with your pet. For your pet, it offers specialized care and attention in the privacy of our hospital or in your home. These are difficult times for you and your pet so we understand the extra attention that you need.

Care Customized To Your Needs:

We can keep your pet in our hospice unit during the day for medication, treatment and wound care or on a 24-hour basis. You may prefer a combination of house calls and hospitalization, house calls alone or intermittent care if you need to be out of town or for any other reason. We can transport your pet to and from your home if that is helpful. You are welcome to visit the hospice unit to be with your pet.
