Crossroads will communicate with you, our client’s trusted veterinarian, through every step of this journey. Our office will send reports after each quality of life and/or hospice consultation to keep you knowledgeable about the care we are recommending and providing.
We love fostering collaborative relationships with you to provide our mutual clients and patients with the very best in diagnostic and treatment options. Whenever it is possible, we will refer clients back to you for continued preventative medicine, diagnostics, and surgery.
After each hospice consultation Dr. Ellen will make recommendations to the client based on her expert knowledge in pain management and comfort care. Sometimes these recommendations may entail discontinuing medications/therapies you have previously prescribed and often entail prescribing new medications/therapies. When these are unfamiliar or seemingly counterintuitive to your area of expertise, preventative and life preserving medicine, lets discuss these recommendations so that we can mutually provide continuity of care.
We also encourage you to contact us for free phone or email consultations to discuss options for patients with end-of-life challenges that you are managing within your practice. Please fill out the form below and Dr. Ellen will contact you within three business days.
