Are you cutting-edge, innovative, and designed for change and growth?
We are a busy, growing, progressive veterinary hospice practice specializing in senior and geriatric care, veterinary hospice & palliative care, end-of-life care, pet loss/grief, and cremation in Houston, TX.
Founded in 2012, our credentialed interdisciplinary team of 15-20 staff include DVMs, LVTs, certified therapeutic laser and massage providers, acupuncturist, groomer, hospice coordinator, phone support, grief counselors and aftercare support. We are one of a handful of larger hospice practices in the world with huge growth potential and significant opportunities.
We operate both in the home and at a hospice facility in central Houston. We have a fleet of vehicles that get us to where we need to be. We are a 365 days/year service, and provide 24/7 care to patients in our hospice program. We serve both as a referral practice for GPs and speciality clinics, and a direct resource for the public at large.
Our small business has turned into a guiding light for the advancement of veterinary hospice care and the development of environmentally-friendly aftercare!
