Hospice

At River Valley Gateway, we provide hospice services. River Valley Gateway offers three comfort care levels, so your pet is not in pain or suffering. Level one is palliative care, level 2 is early hospice care, and level 3 is advanced hospice care. We will work with your primary veterinary hospital in obtaining recent diagnostic tests to help complete an individualized plan for your pet so that they can be comfortable. Pet hospice care is a unique approach to their end-of-life needs focusing on the pet's comfort rather than finding a cure for their disease. 

Pet pain management

Our veterinarians work to find a pet pain management regimen that fits your pet's specific needs. Over time, pets can have discomfort in their joints and other areas of the body. As a certified hospice and palliative care veterinarian, Dr. Norton has additional pain pet management training above and beyond what general veterinarians are taught. We can treat pain differently, and we often try various combinations of efforts until we get the right one for your pet. We may recommend oral medications, physical modalities such as acupuncture or chiropractic manipulations, herbal supplements, CBD oil, nutritional supplements, and even more. Each pet is unique, and we offer individualized care.
