Sick and Elder Pets/ Pet Hospice Care

When a member of your family is sick or becomes so old that they need extra care, you feel a need to be there with them to take care of them. Your pets are an integral part of your family and are often your "children".  It is a difficult decision trying to decide how much time to spend with them to take care of them because of work or other commitments.  Sometimes, it is difficult or impossible for the client to be able to physically provide the care the pet needs.


Lucky Pet at Home can help relieve some of your stress by taking care of your sick or elderly pets when you are unable to.  Our staff is specially trained to provide the best care possible for your pets in conjunction with your vet -- whether they are sick or so old they need extra care or if they are living out their last few days in the familiar surroundings and comfort of their home.  Whatever the need, we are there to help.
