In-home veterinary hospice and euthanasia provider Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice began offering cancer consultations for clients via phone and Skype and is planning to expand its in-home service to Massachusetts and Texas, the company reported today.
Veterinary oncologist Karri Miller, DVM, M.S., Dipl. ACVIM, joined Lap of Love to provide the remote consultations. Dr. Miller will help clients understand what their pet is going through and what their options for treatment are.
Following consultations, a client is emailed a review of their discussion with Dr. Miller, an overview of their pet’s disease and possible treatment options. The same report is also sent to the client’s family veterinarian.
The Tampa-based company started its in-home veterinary hospice service in Florida and expanded into North Carolina and Tennessee last year. The company plans to expand into Massachusetts and Texas “in the coming months.”
