Handout: Quality-of-Life Scale

When evaluating quality of life, personalized patient and client information is needed to reach an educated, informed, and supported choice that fits not only the pet’s medical condition but also the family’s wishes. In short, quality of life applies not only to the pet; it also applies to the family.

This handout will help clients reach educated and informed decisions regarding both the pet’s and the family’s quality of life when considering euthanasia.
