Chronic Illness Care



Many patients battle diseases on a long term basis, also called chronic disease. These patients require more frequent monitoring than healthy patients that are not battling chronic disease. So often, patients are taken to specialists for care and are then sent home with an extensive plan for management that requires much more care than the family anticipated. The stress and cost of specialty care leaves some families in a position where they do not know where to turn. Dr April works closely with veterinary specialists and comes from a medical background steeped in specialty medical training. Let Dr April create a chronic illness management plan with you and your specialist(s) to provide all your companion needs in the comfort and peace of your own home.
