Pets are important members of our families and caring for them at the end of life requires a special kind of support. Your True Care professionals are dedicated to a loving end-of-life experience for you and your animal companion.
What Is Hospice Care?
As individual as the families and pets we serve, pet hospice care extends over a broad spectrum of services. Your pet may require pain management, hospitalization, in-home veterinary supervision, or, ultimately, euthanasia. As a pet owner, you may need answers as questions arise, training in caring for a critically ill pet, or simply someone to talk to and a shoulder to cry on.
Your True Care support system maintains that every pet deserves comfort at the end of life and every pet owner has the right to make necessary decisions. There is no wrong choice when it leads to relief from pain and suffering.
Pet hospice services may be needed to give you time in making decisions that are right for you and your family. We will keep your pet comfortable while offering you support in choosing from the various practical and compassionate options. If you decide on humane euthanasia, you may choose to be with your pet at home or in our hospital—or to say your good-byes in private either before or after this procedure. Whatever your choices, your friends at True Care are here for you.
The Pet Center website offers this helpful article, Euthanasia... What To Expect, for pet owners facing that difficult and emotional decision.
When my parents’ dog Kya died very suddenly a few years ago‚ their regular vet was not at work that day. But thankfully‚ Dr. Tullio was and treated my parents and their dog as if he was their doctor for the past 15 years—doing everything he could to try and revive Kya and by being so compassionate to my parents in the waiting room after having to deliver the sad news. We truly can’t say enough nice things about Dr. Tullio and can’t wait for him to open his new facility! Thank you.

Dr. Tullio has always treated our dogs with great knowledge‚ care‚ and compassion‚ and we have grown to know him quite well. We have been so completely impressed with Dr. Tullio’s consistent excellence in care and services that we wanted to share our experience with others. We are pleased to recommend as the place to go for both quality treatment and compassionate care for your furry family members.
Doctor Tullio is a kind, caring gentleman who has cared for my cocker spaniels for many years now. He has always been helpful‚ honest‚ and understanding with my pets and me. He is a man I trust completely and have and do refer others to him. Any pet owner can feel safe and secure in trusting their beloved pets to his skilled hands.

Molly and Oscar have been patients of Dr. Tullio for several years. I have been very pleased with his care‚ his expertise‚ and his understanding with my two Wheatens. Dr. Tullio has been quick to diagnose any issues and remedy all of the problems we’ve had. I look forward to many more years working with Dr. Tullio. I wish him well in his venture.
