Welcome to Albuquerque Animal Hospice located in Albuquerque New Mexico. Animal Hospice is a relatively new field in veterinary medicine but we are all recognizing, as a profession, how there is a vital need to help support clients and their pets to enjoy the last days of life in the company of loved ones in familiar and comfortable surroundings.
We help council and guide clients in making compassionate decisions about euthanasia. Even though it can be an emotionally difficult experience, we can help. How we say goodbye to our loved ones is important.

He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than the living man. - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
As a practice, we in general follow the guidelines recently established by the American Veterinary Medical Association as well as the quality of life scale developed for the Veterinary Clinics of North America.
