Certified Animal Hospice/Palliative Care Veterinarian
Focuses solely on the gift of in-home euthanasia, in-home palliative care and in-home hospice-assisted natural death allowing pets to be surrounded by their loving families during the final stages of their life journeys. Dr. Chris Hickman is a 1988 graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College with a deep respect and awe for the love shared between people and their beloved furry family members. This led to the opening of her mobile veterinary hospice service so that she can provide in-home palliative, in-home hospice and and in-home end-of-life care, including the gift of in-home euthanasia, in an intimate home setting. It is vitally important that a pet and pet-parents are able to provide a “good” death in a loving environment. All pets deserve a gentle passing surrounded by love and kindness. Dr Chris is here to provide this service and help pet-parents cope with the loss of a beloved friend. In 2018, Dr. Chris became a Certified Animal Hospice/Palliative Care Veterinarian. Hickman Mobile Veterinary Hospice Services provides care to pets in Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area, Brampton, Mississauga, Oakville, Caledon and Orangeville. Extended travel fees may apply.
