Assessing Quality of Life

Similar to humans, animals display signs of well-being, illness, pain, and discomfort.

Assessing Changes

As a pet owner, you know your furry friend the best. Suppose you notice any changes in their behavior. In that case, you should consider a veterinary diagnosis of their health to see if they have an illness or if they are struggling with painful conditions associated with old age.

If your pet has been diagnosed with an illness or with declining health, look for certain signs to assess their quality of life and when it may be time for a pet hospice consultation or the decision to perform in-home pet euthanasia.
