Here at Heritage Oak's, we know it’s stressful to come to the vet, so we work hard to offer our patients a low-stress experience in a more home-like environment. We are a Fear Free Certified Hospital We treat our dogs with the warm friendliness they respond to and offer our cats the soft touch they require.
At-home Euthanasia and Hospice Care
Is it time? Not sure? Don’t worry … you don’t have to stress your elderly pets with a strenuous vet visit. Instead, we’ll come to you. Whether euthanasia is elected or hospice care is rendered instead, we take care of all the details.
One thing you’ll never see at Heritage Oaks is a bank of boarding kennels. Here we believe that a veterinary facility should only house hospitalized patients –– for the benefit of sick and well patients, alike. The exception is for chronically ill patients alone. For those who require special care when their owners go out of town, we’re willing to make arrangements.
Another thing you’ll never see at Heritage Oaks is a dedicated grooming parlor. We do, however, make exceptions for patients who require sedation grooming for non-cosmetic reasons. It also bears noting that the word “effective” should replace “attractive” in any description of our grooming services. Though we do aim to please, show-quality grooming is not our area of expertise. (Fair warning.)
This procedure is quick and easy and helps reunite you with your pets should they find themselves lost or stolen. No anesthesia or sedation necessary!
