Pet end-of-life care:
Supporting families during their time of need
At Becker Animal Hospital, we understand how special the bond is between the pets we have the privilege of treating and the people who love them. After all, we are pet owners, too, and have experienced that joy ourselves.
Should you be faced with difficult decisions regarding your pet’s medical care, our veterinarians will take the time to carefully review all of the options available. We will discuss not only the clinical aspects of your pet’s condition, but also how it may be impacting his or her quality of life. In addition, we will explore pain management options as needed to ensure that your pet is as comfortable as possible.
We will be there to support you however we can, every step of the way.
