“There is hospice care for pets, specially designed care for animals that are near the end of their lives to keep them comfortable and pain-free… We asked Sound Medicine’s healthy pet expert Dr. Liz Murphy about this trend,” says host Barbara Lewis.

Dr. Murphy: "Hospice care in pets is actually a new organized concept, but it’s probably something a lot of veterinarians and their pet owners have done for a long time.”
