Routine Maintenance Services for Any Age Pet
The most comfort is at home.
No need for long waits to get into the vet clinic or groomers for small things like nail trims, ear cleanings or anal gland expressions because they are so incredibly busy these days. No having to dig the car out of the snowbank and no having to pack up and drag the kids to the appointment. We come to you when it is convenient for your schedule.

Stress free & more accurate.
Did you know that some diagnostic tests can be inaccurate when a pet (or person) is really nervous? Because going to the vet clinic can be a scary thing for many pets, their test results may not be as accurate as they could be with an in-home visit. Let Compassionate Pet Care perform these services in the comfort of your home for more accurate results. Some services need to be veterinarian-recommended.

Making home comfort more comfortable
As our pets age, we don't always think about the ways we can help them get around our homes more easily.
Does your old dog slip and slide on the hardwood or tile floors or have a difficult time getting up and down the stairs? Is your older cat missing the litterbox or not getting up on the bed as easily as they used to?
This discussion is an in-depth look at the home environment to develop small changes that make a big impact so it's easier for you and your pet to move through your day to day lives.
Quality of Life Assessment
Navigating those difficult end-of-life questions.
The most frequent question pet families ask is, "How do I know when it's time to let my pet go?" The answer to this is highly individualized to your family and your pet's situation. In this discussion we can navigate those difficult waters so you can come to decision that works for you, your pet and your family. This discussion can help you be prepared before it becomes a crisis. These conversations tend to be a little shorter than and not quite as in-depth as Hospice Discussions.
Helping you help them until their journey's end.
Pet hospice care encompasses the physical, mental, and emotional needs of the pet as well as the mental health, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of the family in preparation for the end of their pet's journey in life and subsequent grief. This discussion will explore how we can make your pet as comfortable as they can be for the time they have left. Because these discussions are in-depth and detailed, you won't be left empty handed. You will be provided resources to refer back to and to help you along your pet's end-of-life journey.
