The end of life journey with your beloved can be a difficult, yet precious, time together.  We walk alongside you and your family during this journey, showing you a path that focusses on living every moment to the fullest, in as much comfort as possible, for all members of your family.

We guide you through the difficult decision-making process, following the path of ‘least regrets’, and helping you to understand when your pet is telling you that they are ready to let go.

As your journey together nears its final destination, we can help to understand what to expect, support your pet with honor and comfort and meaning.

Meet Shadow and Jo-Anne

“Words can’t express the gratitude we have for the extra time of joy you have given to our family.  The shocking discovery of a massive tumor in our dear Shadow was unimaginable. And while others may have counselled an immediate same-day euthanasia, the supportive symptom care you provided to him blessed our family with more precious moments of joy and play and walks and fetch, and many hugs and kisses and extra hours of snuggle time.  It also provided us with a period of time to more readily come to terms with our impending loss and to honor the final steps of our journey together. In the end, Shadow was able to say Goodbye on his own terms. Having you by our side during those last weeks to guide us, knowing that even through the grief we were clearly walking the path of least regrets, was a truly a most beautiful gift.”  Jo-Anne B

Transitions Veterinary care provides services to you, your pet, and your family from the comfort of your home. We eliminate the need to go through the often arduous, fearful, and sometimes painful task of transporting your pet and the unfamiliar environment of a traditional veterinary hospital. Additionally, our in-home assessments allow us to evaluate your pet in their actual environment, providing us with a much more accurate understanding of your pet’s situation.

Transitions Virtual Medical Care will provide all the virtual care you and your pet might need in-between formal In-Home visits. Many clients have shared with us how much they appreciate the extra supportive medical care we provide through phone calls, email, video, and text messaging—all without the need to visit a Veterinary Office or waiting for a formal in-home Visit.

Respect is one of our founding CARE Principles, and so we always begin by taking the time to truly understand the needs of you, your pet and your entire (human and animal) family. This is a detailed process which explores all of the many facets of you and your pet’s activities, environments, limitations, and desires.
