Saying Goodbye Where Pets Are Like Family

End of Life Veterinary Care in Spring, TX

Compassionate Support for the Loss of Your Pet

We know that pets are part of your family and that losing a pet can be a heartbreaking experience. As your pet ages, you may be faced with some difficult decisions regarding his or her quality of life. At Champion Wood Animal Hospital, we’re with you every step of the way. We’ll help you make the best decision for your pet and your family. We will never rush you or go against your wishes. We are here to provide support and guidance as your pet passes on.

Quality of Life

Our focus is on the comfort and the quality of life for every pet. Our veterinarians in Spring, TX know that honesty and compassion are the best policy when facing tough decisions about your pet’s health. Aging pets, those with chronic illnesses, or pets that are acutely injured may be suffering in some way that is not immediately evident. You know your pet best and we can help you help them.

What are the signs of a declining quality of life?

  • Your pet is hiding or sleeping in unusual places
  • Your pet is avoiding their favorite activities
  • Other animals in your home appear to be bullying your pet
  • Your pet is confused or irritable
  • Your pet is losing their appetite
  • Your pet is excessively drinking water

If you notice any of these behaviors, call (281) 502-2569 immediately. We can help determine what’s wrong with your pet.

Palliative Care

For sick or aging pets, we may recommend palliative care to help keep them comfortable as their disease progresses. Like any of our treatments at Champion Wood Animal Hospital, palliative care is tailored to suit the needs of your pet.

Treatment plans may include:

  • Nutritional support
  • Antibiotics
  • IV fluids
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs or opioids
  • Diuretics
  • Surgical procedures

We don’t want your pet to suffer. We’ll work with you to identify the best course of action based on their specific needs, and help you make decisions to make your pet’s final days as painless as possible.

End of Life

The decision to euthanize your pet is never easy but may be the kindest thing you can do to ease their suffering. Our veterinarians will let you know if they think euthanasia is the best course of action. We will walk you through what the process looks like and what you can expect. Compassionate, humane treatment is our goal no matter what you decide to do. You can choose to be with your pet during their final moments, or we can arrange to come to your home so your pet may pass on in a familiar environment. We want to provide you with whatever will make you and your pet most comfortable during this difficult time.

We’ll help you understand your options for your pet’s end of life. Our compassionate team of professionals will walk you through everything you need to know. Call (281) 502-2569 or contact us online.
