Description

Because there's no place like home, we strive to provide personalized end-of-life care for pets in the Hampton Roads area. Our veterinarians, Dr. Carmack and Dr. Schacher, focus on treating elderly companion animals and those with terminal diseases in the comfort of your own home. Our doctors will provide education about your pet's disease and aging process. They can make personalized quality of life assessments and assist with pain recognition and management. We provide nutritional counseling and fluid therapy. We also provide information and products that help with mobility and hygiene. If euthanasia is the best decision for your pet and your family, our doctors can perform this service in the comfort of your home or in one of your pets favorite locations. This flexibility avoids the stress of a typical veterinary visit and provides a more peaceful experience for your pet and your family. Dr. Carmack has also co-founded the Hampton Roads Pet Loss Support Group in an effort to provide ongoing support to those who have said goodbye to a beloved pet. In addition, Hampton Roads Veterinary Hospice offers free online pet memorials to anyone wishing to create a post for their pet. Losing a pet hurts and we want to help! Our mobile services avoid the stress of traditional veterinary visits and provides a family-oriented approach to palliative care. Please contact us at if we can assist you and your pets....

I am writing this from a unique perspective, I'm an owner of a pet sitting company here locally in Virginia Beach. We first met Dr. Carmack under extreme duress, when Plan A fell through and our client needed to help her beloved lab cross over. We didn't know what else to do, but we had been hearing wonderful things about Dr. Carmack's services, so our client called. Dr. Carmack not only responded...

Everyone should know about her. She works out of her home and she comes to you when she is needed. She was fantastic with my dogs. She will come to your home to euthanize the dog and will help you through your dogs through their illness. She has a great responsive time, she is very knowledgable and a great resource. She also holds a support group once every month if you need it.
