One of our most popular services is our in-home hospice examination and consultation. Dr. Candy Akers is a professional, licensed and experienced veterinarian. She currently performs all exams and consultations. A comprehensive exam provides an objective evaluation of medical condition and quality of life. Dr. Candy will discuss all components of pet’s health; topics may include prognosis, quality of life, pain , and care options. This open discussion with you and your family can help determine whether to direct towards a hospice care plan or euthanasia.
