Connect. Assess. Plan. Support.
As part of our unique human animal bond-centred approach to caring for pets and their people, we offer Home Pet Care Planning consultations, to provide professional guidance and support to you and your pet through all life stages, while being sensitive and supportive to your circumstances at the time.
We follow four simple steps across all areas:
1) CONNECT We connect to your pet and you, and develop a strong understanding of your pet, but also who you are and where everyone is at. This becomes a foundation for a longer term pet caring relationship as your pet and you travel through life’s stages.
2) ASSESS We conduct a thorough and comprehensive health and wellbeing assessment of your pet across all areas (physical health, nutrition, dental, environmental factors, training and behaviour, bond appraisal, owner’s circumstances, financial considerations, hardship considerations)
3) PLAN Through our consultative and collaborative process we develop a tailored plan that works for your pet and you.
4) SUPPORT We provide support so that you can implement the plan and are responsive to changing needs. We understand life, pets and people.
Whatever age, stage or phase, we can enhance your pet’s health and wellbeing through our supportive and guided approach across several areas including:
Start Right plan: for those thinking of getting a pet. Make the right choices from the beginning and get started right, so that you can enjoy the benefits of pet ownership.
Wellness: keeping your pet healthy and happy, always. Includes the annual health check and vaccination, as well as parasite, dental and nutrition plans.
Nutrition: not sure what to feed your pet? We can help!
Behaviour and Training: wanting to get the best behaviour and enjoyment from your pet? Ask us how! We engage the services of qualified dog training and behaviour management professionals, and can coordinate care plans according to your specific needs.
Emergency Care Plans: If something happens to you, what will happen to your pet? It’s vital to have a plan in place, in case it is needed. This is highly recommended for people who live alone .
Ancillary Pet Health Care Services: Through our network of dedicated pet care service providers we can help arrange the following in-home services to help you manage and maintain the health of your pet:
> Dog Walking
> Pet Sitting/Pet Minding
> Pet Care Counselling
While You’re Away: With so many options available now for pet care while you are away, ask us for professional guidance on which choice suits your pet, your family and your budget best. We can also refer you to providers of this service who we have appraised for their quality of care.
Arthritis, Pain Management and Senior Years Care: We provide in-home support for the senior and arthritic patient, often in a shared care arrangement with other consulting veterinarians. Through an in-home consultation we evaluate your pet’s quality of life, incorporating home based solutions and therapeutic options to ensure your pet’s comfort and quality of life is maintained through end of life stages.
Chronic and terminal illness/ Palliative and Hospice Care: Has your pet received a chronic or terminal illness diagnosis? Are you struggling to process and understand the options? Is your pet nearing the end of his or her life, and you are seeking additional professional advice on how to manage this very special chapter? We provide a dedicated and responsive home care service to patients in their end of life phases.
