2016 AAHA/IAAHPC End-of-Life Care Guidelines

End-of-life (EOL) care and decisionmaking embody the critical final stage in a pet’s life and are as important and meaningful as the sum of the clinical care provided for all prior life stages.

Summary: challenges and opportunities

The overarching goal of EOL care in veterinary medicine is to maximize patient comfort while minimizing suffering, utilizing a collaborative and supportive approach with the caregiver client.

End-of-Life Care accreditation

It’s no secret that today’s pet owners increasingly view their pets as family. Forty-percent of surveyed owners said they would likely not return to a veterinary hospital where they had an unsatisfactory pet euthanasia experience. That’s why AAHA developed a new accreditation model called End-of-Life Care accreditation.

The end-of-life event

Both euthanasia and hospice-supported natural death are medically and ethically acceptable options in veterinary EOL care and animal hospice. Deciding between humane euthanasia and hospicesupported natural death should be the result of a collaborative discussion involving the caregiver and the animal hospice team.
