Rainbow Bridge Vet Services provides compassionate, in home hospice care and euthanasia
services for caring pet owners in the San Francisco Bay Area. We recognize that for most people,
the end of a loved animal companion's life is one of the most difficult and heart-breaking
experiences of their lives. We try to make this experience less painful by offering end of life care in
the home, where you and your pet will feel more comfortable.
If the need for euthanasia is near, an appointment can be set for us to assist you in providing a
peaceful death for your animal in your home (or other suitable location). We will discuss options for
disposition, (the care of the body after death) and answer any questions that you might have. If the
time of death is not imminent, we may suggest and offer help with hospice, palliative care, or pain
management and make appropriate referrals to others who can help.

What We Do
We provide only end of life care (home hospice, palliative care, and euthanasia services) for pets.
We were one of the very first, and are still one of only a few veterinary practices in the world
dedicated solely to this area of veterinary care.

Areas Served
We provide regular service to clients in the San Francisco East Bay Area (Click here for detailed
cities listing). Service to other Bay Area Communities (Napa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and
Solano Counties) may be available on a limited basis, with additional charges for travel. Please call
or e-mail for more information. For clients living outside of these areas,
telephone consultations are
available, or we may be able to refer you to a
Lap of Love or other colleague in your area.

While we do not provide emergency services, we do have appointments available during the day, as
well as limited evening, and weekend appointments. Ideally, you should call or e-mail at least 1-2
days prior to needing our services. However, if your pet is in need of immediate care, we will make
every effort to accommodate your needs as quickly as possible. Please fill out a new client
information form by clicking on the link below (there is no obligation), or call  us for more information.
