Hospice care

It is always difficult caring for a terminally ill pet. During hospice care the doctors at Smithfield Animal Hospital will prescribe medications to keep your pet comfortable. We can also recommend ways for you to best care for your pet in their condition. Feel free to ask questions and let us know how we can help.

As your pet becomes painful, elderly, sick, or suffering Smithfield Animal Hospital will help you through these difficult times. Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals will help ensure your pet's comfort and dignity during his or her last days and final moments. If you have special requests or questions about your pet's remains we can help you with these concerns and will make every effort to accommodate your wishes at this very difficult time.

Deciding when your pet may need hospice care or euthanasia is a very personal and private decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make this difficult choice on your own. Our hospice and humane euthanasia services are conducted with respect, compassion, and care. Before you struggle through one more day with a sick, elderly, or terminally ill pet that is suffering, call us at 757-357-9308 to learn how we can help.

  • "I took my 12 week old puppy in today and was very impressed with the care given to him. The ladies at the front desk were so friendly and welcoming. The vet answered all of my questions, was patient, and really seemed to care about my puppy. Having been to another clinic in the area, I was pleased with not only the care, but also the value. Thanks for the excellent service."
