End of Life and Euthanasia

The 2016 AAHA/IAAHPC End-of-Life Care Guidelines provide detailed recommendations for maximizing patient comfort and minimizing suffering while providing a collaborative and supportive partnership with the caregiver client.71 For many clients, as their senior pet develops chronic progressive disease or a terminal illness, the events and veterinary care surrounding their pet’s final life stage are significant.

The 2023 AAHA Senior Care Guidelines for Dogs and Cats are generously supported by Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, CareCredit, IDEXX, and Zoetis.
