For pet hospice care and in-home euthanasia for dogs and cats, Restful Paws is the compassionate choice for the San Francisco Bay Area. Located in Sunnyvale, CA, the pet hospice and euthanasia professionals at Restful Paws offer families personally designed plans to prepare for the end of their beloved pets’ lives.
Having lost her beloved animal friend, Dr. Louise Rathjen, the founder of Restful Paws, and who also holds a doctorate in veterinary medicine, understands firsthand how difficult losing a pet can be. It was this loss that prompted her to specialize in end-of-life care for animals. Through her work, she provides pet owners options when faced with the end of their pets’ lives. Her in-home euthanasia and pet hospice programs give pets a dignified and peaceful way to pass in the comfort of their home, being held by their owners.
When your pet’s quality of living is compromised, the decision to euthanize may be necessary. Restful Paws offers assistance in deciding if pet euthanasia is best. The caring team will assess medical records and offer options for the best course of action for your pet’s final days. Employing excellent veterinary care, they will examine your pet, looking for signs to indicate it’s time to say goodbye, such as trouble breathing, chronic illness or pain, or no desire to eat or drink.
With in-home euthanasia, your pet can pass peacefully in the place they love most—their home. The process is painless and allows them to be comfortable while letting pet owners spend a few quiet moments with them before they go. The compassionate team is also available to comfort the pet owner through this most difficult time as well as assist in cremation and burial planning.
Restful Paws also provides pet hospice care, a specially designed program that offers pets comfort, support, and therapy during their final days, all with the goal of maintaining a quality of life. The program features pain management, mobility support, and medicine administration in addition to setting up your home for the pet who is terminally ill or nearing the end of their natural life. The veterinary team will also communicate with your pet’s regular veterinarian, ensuring your dog or cat’s condition and treatment plans are up to date and adhered to.
