The lifespans of our beloved pets have increased creating stronger and more lasting bonds. Mercy Animal Hospice was started as a means to honor the memory and loss of our aging pets. Currently it operates as a mobile End-of-Life veterinary practice, with two physical locations to better serve our patients and their families. Veterinary Hospice care can be an option for patients with physical disability, those with chronic or terminal illnesses, patients recovering from a serious injury, those having emotional and/or behavioral problems, and elderly patients and those requiring hospice care at home.
We realize you may have fears or concerns about taking your pet to the veterinary office when this type of care is needed. Our doctors and highly trained staff take the time to listen to your concerns or questions and to clearly explain what veterinary treatment will best suit your needs and budget. We treat each patient as an individual with the care and respect they deserve. We also know your time is valuable. Appointments are scheduled to allow accurate arrival times and waiting time is kept to a minimum and each patient is given our full attention during each visit.
In-home Services are available for Gwinnett, Fulton, Cherokee, Hall, Coweta, Clayton, Douglas, Fayette and Cobb counties and most other Greater Atlanta Metro Areas.
We believe that each pet is an angel and are dear to us each in their special and unique way.....
They are our most beloved companions. They are trusted confidants.....
They willingly share many precious family moments. They guard and protect our families......
They make great friends and they care for us as much as we care for them.....
Although we wish that they can live forever, they are only trusted to us for a time. They know that we will make the toughest of life's decisions with love....
When the time comes, we know that a familiar home environment, surrounded by loved ones is what they would want. We are here to support you all.
A note from Our Doctor
Hello and thank you for visiting this site. I am certain that your love for your pet has brought you here.
Over the years I have performed countless euthanasias in a clinical environment. Though compassionately performed by many veterinarians today, I have hope to improve on the quality of the experience by providing this service at home and to work with families to create a plan when possible.
After losing my two aged pets to cancer- Ginger and Cinnamon (seen left), I truly believe that there is "no place like home" for End-of Life care. It was during this time that I committed to providing Pet Hospice care as an option for ailing pets.
Palliative care seeks to relieve suffering associated with life-limiting illness. As illness progresses, there may also be times when the burdens of medical interventions outweigh their benefits, when intervention is nonbeneficial, or when its use is inconsistent with the patients goals. Pet Hospice options ensure that your pet makes their transition in the most relaxed and loving environment.
When you and your family veterinarian determine that your pet's overall health and quality of life has diminished, it is my goal to help you say goodbye in the kindest manner possible.
