Palliative Care for Pets

Palliative care is often considered when a pet has a terminal illness or a condition that cannot be fully cured.

Understanding Palliative Care for Pets

Palliative care, whether for humans or pets, is an approach to healthcare that focuses on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress associated with a serious illness, rather than attempting to cure the underlying condition. The primary goal of palliative care is to improve the patient’s quality of life and provide comfort.
