Hospice Care

Does your pet suffer from a chronic illness that is diminishing his or her quality of life? Are you concerned that your elderly pet is in too much pain? Are you struggling to care for your terminally ill animal companion?

As loving pet parents, we’d all love to see our companions live as long as we do. Unfortunately, these precious babies are only with us for a finite amount of time. It’s important that we take the appropriate measures to make sure that the end of that time is spent as happily and painlessly as possible.

The hospice care services at Live Oak Veterinary Hospital are designed to help extend those final days while also relieving pain and reducing suffering. We understand that as difficult as it is to say goodbye to a loved one, deciding when to do so is even harder. Our compassionate staff members will be there to explain your options and help you make those tough decisions.

At Live Oak Veterinary Hospital, we want you to know that when that time comes, we’ll be right by your side. We know exactly what you’re going through, because each one of us has been in your shoes. Rest assured that your pet will be treated with the utmost compassion and given the opportunity to cross the Rainbow Bridge with peace and dignity.

Are you struggling with end of life decisions for your elderly or terminally ill pet? Perhaps you just have questions about how hospice care works and whether it would be a good fit for your situation. In either case, we encourage you to pick up the phone and give us a call. We’re here to support you in any way we can and to help make this difficult time a little bit easier.

      Doc Susan Loyd & her staff have provided 18 yrs of great care for all 3 of our pups. They follow up with a call to check on us all. Dog "Bandit" actually enjoys going for his Doctor visits!

      Cholia the chihuahua was attacked by two unmonitored Mastiffs and Dr. Susan saved her leg! Cho was rushed to Beaufort immediately and Susan dropped what she was doing to assist in a time of need. The hospital is a clean and updated facility, which I would highly recommend her services!

      I went there today to take my dog, they are very nice and caring. They were great with my dog who is very hard to handle since she bounces off the wall. We will be going back from now on.
