This was the first time I as an adult dealt with end of life care for an animal. I made the decision to euthanize based on my pets quality of life, pain level, and the fact that due to my work schedule I would not have been able to be with her.
I think hospice care is completely appropriate in many scenarios. It's a decision all pet owners need to be prepared to make.
Thanks for the great question! Have you had some experience caring for a pet in it's last days at home?
