Veterinary Hospice Opens in Middlesex County

(Medford, MA) (March 3, 2015) – Autumn Care & Crossings is now offering animal hospice and palliative care services for pets with life limiting or incurable diseases and their families.

Animal hospice and palliative care provide comfort to companion animals as they approach the end of life. Services may include hospice treatment, pain/anxiety management, holistic healing and in-home euthanasia. The concept initially gained significant traction within the pet industry and veterinary medical field. Now, pet owners are embracing it.

Many pet parents choose hospice care in order to participate in decision making about their pet’s needs, have the time to say goodbye to their companions and to plan for their death.

“People all over the world are interested in how they can provide meaningful end-of-life care to their pets”, said Dr. Becky Schoenberg, owner of Autumn Care & Crossings. “We are happy to be at the forefront of this innovative, yet much-needed practice.”

  1. Thank you for the good news! And I know everyone will support this. As a pet parent and having a veterinary hospice along the city is very helpful to us. I experienced twice to my pet to get euthanize because they suffer both cancer and other complication to their body. Please refer to this link:
