Quality Of Life Scale
How It Works & How You Can Understand It
Dr. Alice Villalobos first developed a Quality of Life Scale for animals in 2010. Her scale utilizes a pet’s condition and gives subjective measurements to Hurt, Hunger, Hydration, Hygiene, Happiness, Mobility, and a More good days than bad category to assess the current situation. Through continued refinement, I have developed the following scale that is used to help guide in our companion’s care goals. This will be reviewed each visit to ensure we are providing the best care for our friends.
We will discuss your pet’s wellness in a range from where your pet is now, to what the ideal condition for your pet is. Any room for improvement will be handled through physical rehabilitation and pain management to help your pet attain their best Quality of Life.
