Instructions: For each variable there is an assigned value of 10 points with an example for scores of 1, 5 and 10 as guidance. Use your judgment to decide how your pet scores. Example: E – Eating and Drinking, if your pet “only eats treats” you may assign a value of 2 or 3- higher than 1 which is not eating at all, but less than 5 which is eating slightly less of their regular food than is normal for them.
A total over 35 points represents acceptable life quality to continue with pet hospice access. If you score below 35 points we encourage clients to call for an appointment for further assessment.
