Speak directly with a doctor by phone or Zoom for 30 minutes.  We'll address your pet's quality of life and help answer your questions about how you can make your pet more comfortable.

Note: Since our doctor will not be conducting an in-person physical examination of your pet, this call cannot diagnose, treat or prevent illness, pain or disease. The purpose of teleadvice is to provide general guidance for pet owners.


Quality of Life Consultation

When you're not sure the time has come for euthanasia, a Heron's Crossing veterinarian will assess your pet and provide guidance. If the time is right, our vet can proceed. If not, they will make a plan for comfort care. Includes follow-ups by email for up to six months.


In-office Quality of Life Consultations are available, by appointment.
