The Quality of Life

AHF Board Member, Dr Alice Villalobos, a renowned veterinary oncologist developed a scoring system to help family members and veterinary teams assess a pet's life quality, The HHHHHMM Quality of Life Scale. The five H's stand for: Hurt, Hunger, Hydration, Hygiene and Happiness. The two M's stand for Mobility and More good days than bad. The scale is a helpful tool which you can find by clicking the link below.
