End of Life Care

End-of-Life Care in Ferndale: Dog laying downOne of the commitments we make to our pets is to try to prevent pain and suffering.  Often difficult decisions need to be made when their quality of life becomes unacceptable.  Many questions arise and are often accompanied by feelings of confusion, sadness, and guilt.

At Whatcom Veterinary Hospital, we understand these questions and feelings and want to help you through the process.  Sometimes medications or other therapies can be used to alleviate pain and/or suffering restoring a pet’s quality of life.  In other cases, euthanasia may be the best option.  Whatever decision is made, we’re committed to standing alongside you and your pet providing the best care possible.
