who we are

Comforting Creatures is an independently owned veterinary home care practice on the westside of Los Angeles.  We specialize in helping families with elderly or terminally ill pets.  

We provide hospice or palliative care and quality of life consultations, as well as pain management consultations, ancillary services for elderly or ill pets, and at-home euthanasia.  

We know that pets are four-legged family members, and we love your pets as our own.  

Dr. Shana developed a passion for elderly pets and pets with chronic and terminal illnesses during her years as an emergency veterinarian.  After settling in Los Angeles, she founded Comforting Creatures in order to help families give their four-legged family members loving care in all stages of their life.  

Dr. Shana was honored as the Veterinarian of the Year by the University of Georgia.
