WHAT IS VETERINARY
As in the human field, comfort care refers to the provision of proactive, personalised veterinary medicine to manage the symptoms of chronic, often terminal, ill health with the aim of maximising quality of life.
Comfort care addresses the needs of the whole family offering physical, emotional and social support to pets as well as emotional support to owners.
It can be initiated at any elderly stage or during an end of life process to enhance quality of life for weeks, months or years.
COMFORT CARE PRINCIPLES
BOND FOCUSED - we recognise that the bond with your pet is of utmost importance. By looking at creative, stress free ways of medicating and providing treatments we prioritise the integrity of the human animal bond.
INTEGRATIVE - by encompassing conventional medicine, nutrition, behavioural, physical and alternative therapies we ensure your pet's physical, social and your emotional well being is comprehensively taken care of.
INTERDISCIPLINARY - we partner with specialists in their field to ensure your pet receives the highest standard of care and you receive the bereavement support you need.
HOME-ORIENTED - everyone is more comfortable in their own space that's why for our initial extended consult, we will come to you.
TIME GIVING - our extended consultations allow you the time you need to feel completely comfortable every step of the way.
