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)
- Vitamin B injections
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
- Infection control
- Diet or mental stimulation
- 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 :
I want to thank you and everyone at Cloud 9 Vets for organising the Gentle Euthanasia for my cat Shelley and the post mortem and cremation afterwards. It removed a great deal of stress for her & for us, and she passed away quickly & peacefully in her own bed at home. Please thank the vet for driving 2 hours to our home on a Sunday to do this, and also for driving Shelley’s body the same evening to the animal hospital for the post mortem. All of you have been kind, sensitive and professional, and I am grateful for all your help.
Found these guys by chance and they came out on a Sunday evening to put our family dog to sleep. Excellent service, vet wonderfully compassionate, no anxiety, cannulation or pain, gentle drift to sleep, whole family there to see him off as he layed in my parents arms in front of the fire. They made a heart wrenching situation as good as it could be. Can't prise enough or recommend more highly
Thank you very much for the way you treated my daughter Rosa when you came to collect Floppy. It was a big day for her and the whole thing was made much easier by your attitude and understanding. Thanks again.
Talking with someone about Paco's condition without having to take him miles to the vet was really great. I can't speak highly enough of the knowledge of the person who came. I would suggest this to anyone in a similar position.
Abel's unexpected passing was difficult enough, so to do away with the worries of how to care for him afterwards was a real godsend. We called very late at night but they still sent someone - it did cost a little more because we hadn't registered but I would pay more for a service like this.
Learning to say goodbye to Socks and Mittens took a long time but I am grateful to Jeremy for the ongoing visits and care he provided. The advice and tea and chats we shared about how they'd be feeling in themselves made it easier to understand. I really can't thank him enough.
