Pets are family. They're our partners for life, our confidants, our best friends. They give us their all, and when they're nearing the end of their lives, it's time to do whatever we can to comfort them and enhance their quality of life.
Pet Hospice and Palliative Care seeks to provide support and care for companion animals through the final stage of their lives. It's a holistic approach, considering the whole animal as an individual, and customizing treatments to best serve their needs. It's a network of people with different specialities, who can support you every step of the way, so you don't need to walk this journey alone.
The Joy Session Network is full of people and businesses who care deeply about animals, and the connections we share. They're here to provide you with options and information, so you can make decisions backed by both knowledge and compassion.
