Giving your pet the best quality of life until the very end is as important to us as it is to you. We know that the happiest memories are built from times when you and your pet are free to live your lives together without fears that their old age or illness might be causing them pain. That is why we provide in-home palliative and geriatric medicine, including pet pain relief and animal hospice care to prolong their comfort and quality of life.
Both the mental and physical well-being of your pet are addressed, allowing them to live their normal life for as long as possible. This care can begin from the moment your pet receives a terminal diagnosis, or when you know your pet is having problems because of their advanced age or condition.
Your Pet Pain Relief Consultation
The first step in the process is to invite one of our Caring Vets round to meet your pet in person. We do not have problems with grumpy, shy or even aggressive dogs or cats, so your pet will always be in safe hands.
After a gentle examination, your Vet will be able to recommend how to ensure your animal companion is getting the very most out of their life or to discuss the best ways to proceed in order to minimise their pain.
The Goals of Your In-Home Animal Hospice
The idea behind our pet pain management service is to make sure that your animal family members are safe, free from pain and do not have to leave the place where they feel most comfortable to get the care they need.
- The qualified mobile Vet we send will be able to help you to:
- Provide pet pain medication where necessary and improve their physical comfort
- Understand what to expect and look for as your pet's life begins to draw to a close
- Care for your pet's medical, dietary and emotional needs
- Adjust to your pet's progressive disease or age-related symptoms
What Pet Pain Medication Do We Prescribe?
The types of pet medication and other treatments we can provide include:
- Amoxicillin/ Clavulanic LA (Betamox or equivalent)

What else can you do to help my pet?
The treatment your pet gets will include clear and comprehensive recommendations for their ongoing care, as well as things like:
- Treatment for wounds

- Pain management
All of this takes place in close consultation with your Caring Vet. They are always available to discuss your pet's evolving condition with you and you can reach us by phone at any time of the day or night.
You need to be absolutely sure that when you book a vet home visit that you're going to be getting care from someone that you can count on. You can see below what some of our clients have said about the support that we have given them :
When Ricky was diagnosed with cancer, I really didn't know how long we'd have left so having someone to book to come and see how he was going on a regular basis was really helpful to me and to him. I could tell just by looking at him sometimes that he was in pain but having someone to recommend treatment to keep him as happy as he could be, made his life better. Anyone faced with this should consider home care from someone like Cloud 9 Vets.
