“Gentle Journey Veterinary Hospice was founded by Nancy A. Ruffing, DVM in March, 2008. After practicing emergency veterinary medicine for 9 years, Dr. Nancy recognized voids in current veterinary care, including: - interpreting and dealing with age-related changes in behavior, appetite, mobility, and hygiene, - guidance on pain management and nutritional options for pets diagnosed with chronic or terminal illness, and - end-of-life options, such as hospice and in-home euthanasia. During these periods, when veterinary care is so crucial to the pet's quality of life and the happiness derived from the human-pet bond, followup examinations frequently decline due to the physical and emotional toll of office visits. Even when regular office visits continue, many veterinarians cannot provide hospice or in-home euthanasia for logistical reasons. By offering a full-range of customized home care choices, Gentle Journey expands the options available to pet owners in southwestern Pennsylvania.”
