DISCLAIMER

Please Read Before Proceeding 

Before contacting licensed veterinarians listed in our Hospice Veterinarians database or mental health professionals listed in our Counseling and Hospice Professionals database, we urge you to inquire about their specific training and experience in animal hospice care or in pet loss counseling before entrusting your companion animal or yourself to their care. The NHFP cannot be held responsible for the actions, omissions or performance of the hospice veterinarians or mental health professionals listed vis--vis their handling of either your pets specific hospice needs or your own specific counseling needs.

 

On request, we can supply you with further information on each veterinarian or counseling/hospice professional listed, but we cannot vouch for any of them on an individual basis. These databases are designed to help you in your search for adequate animal hospice care or grief counseling, but the final decision on an animal health care provider or a therapist is yours alone. If you wish to ascertain in greater depth the reputation, training, and/or experience of these hospice veterinarians or counseling/hospice professionals, you are advised to contact the appropriate Veterinary Licensing Board or State Licensing Board in your state.

 

The NHFP cannot be held liable for any problems you may incur in regard to your choice of a hospice veterinarian or a mental health professionals from these databases. Furthermore, it cannot be named as a party in any malpractice lawsuit resulting from improper administration of medication or from improper implementation (or non-observance) of animal/veterinary hospice care guidelines as they are either posted by The NHFP on this website or by the AVMA on its own website nor can it be named as a party in any malpractice lawsuit resulting from inappropriate or inadequate counseling. Once you access our Hospice Veterinarians database and/or our Counseling and Hospice Professionals database, we will assume that you have read the above, understand it, and consent to its terms.

 

HOSPICE VETERINARIANS
 

Due to the high demand for names of veterinarians with an interest in this field and  in a position to offer animal hospice care to their clients, our database contains an up-to-date list of all those hospice veterinarians of The NHFP who are available for consultation. Since the situation of each animal health care practitioner is unique, you may discover that some of them are not taking on new clients at any given time, so you may need to contact more than one veterinarian listed.

 

The veterinarians in our database all have a strong vested interest in animal hospice care. We have asked each of them to submit a detailed questionnaire, outlining their experience and academic background, as well as a description of how they personally provide this service and their level of experience in this field. Most are licensed veterinarians who are already offering animal hospice care but who have not attended any of The NHFPs training seminars or symposia. Others (who have a double red asterisk** next to their names) are licensed veterinarians who have completed a training seminar in animal hospice care offered through The NHFP, have been providing such care for many years and are extremely well-versed in the field, or have attended one of The NHFP's international symposia on animal hospice care. They may also serve as board members or advisory board members of The NHFP and many have conducted training seminars themselves.  If you cannot find a hospice veterinarian in your city or state, please call The NHFP at (707) 557-8595.
