Resources for Families

As a pet's needs change due to age, mobility challenges, and/or life limiting diagnoses,  tools and products can help families and caregivers meet them with finesse. 

Here, you'll find my top picks to do just that and used by me and my families, curated by category.

products, articles & tools

mobility

Physical ability to move along changes as a pet ages. Osteoarthritis, muscle loss, maladaptive pain and more can contribute. To access information on how to enhance your pet's mobility, click here.

hygiene

Keeping pets clean & comfortable is essential, especially in all stages of hospice and end of life. Making it easy is my jam. Click here for ideas you can implement right now, as well as to discover products.
