VIRTUAL QUALITY OF LIFE ASSESSMENT

Virtual Quality of Life consultations are the same as our in-home consultations, except they can be made with either our doctor or our nurse, and because this is by video call, consults can be done from anywhere, even if you are outside of our service area.  

Our 60-90 minute virtual Quality of Life consults include a written summary, communication with your primary care vet, and a link to your video consult upon request so that you may rewatch at any time.

3 EASY STEPS FOR VIRTUAL VISITS

  • Schedule an online Quality of Life consult with either our doctor or our nurse 
  • A confirmation will be emailed to you
  • Our virtual concierge will connect you to our doctor or nurse using your preferred platform (FaceTime, Skype, or Google Hangouts) on the day and time of your appointment - we will care for all the technology details 

The goals of the consultation are to:

  • Help you to assess your pet's current level of pain, quality of life, and if more options are available 

  • Help you understand what is happening to your pet 

  • Help you to determine when to make the decision of euthanasia and share how to best plan for the timing of it

  • Help prepare you for letting go and guide you with what to expect during the euthanasia process

  • Share how to help other pets or children in the home prepare for loss

  • Offer additional guidance to help improve your pet's quality of life, such as tips for giving medications, how to encourage eating, and environmental changes to further support your pet
