The corporate veterinary hospital chain will now offer in-home hospice, palliative care, and euthanasia to pets in select California cities and counties.

BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital has announced the acquisition of Pet Hospice, a California-based company that offers telehealth and education along with in-home care for pets, owners, and veterinarians. Through the acquisition, BluePearl’s name will transition to Blue Pearl Pet Hospice, and the company will offer in-home hospice and palliative care, and euthanasia to pets located in Marin, Napa, Sonoma, and San Francisco counties.

CEO and co-founder of BluePearl Darryl Shaw said in a press release about the acquisition, “Now more than ever, the human-animal bond plays an integral part in pet owners’ lives. Understanding this, BluePearl Pet Hospice focuses not only on end-of-life services for the pet but also on the human component of care.” “Along with our mission to provide remarkable care to pets, our hospitals seek to improve pets’ quality of life as end of life nears—whether this mean days, months, or years. With BluePearl Pet Hospice support throughout the end-of-life process, pet owners can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying the time that remains.”

Additionally, Blue Pearl Pet Hospice provides nationwide access to professional grief counseling, telehealth services, community support, and free online education. With plans to expand immediately, BluePearl says it’s actively seeking compassionate veterinary professionals to join its team, including veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
