Euthanasia

It is our hope that we can help your pet live a long, happy life, free of pain and disease. When the time comes that your beloved pet’s quality of life deteriorates, we will do everything we can to provide a peaceful passing.

The process of saying “goodbye” to an old friend is always hard, and we are here to give you peace of mind, counseling, and support.

What to expect

Before we euthanize any pet, we will want to discuss with you what’s going on, what treatments have been tried, and what the quality of life is for your animal companion. If we haven’t seen him or her recently, or we are not treating for an ongoing problem, we will examine your pet and make sure that euthanasia is the best option, and that you know if there are other options to consider. We will not euthanize a pet we have not seen recently without a consultation with the owner.

The process is very quick and peaceful. Some people will opt for their pet to receive a sedative prior to the euthanasia. Some people stay for the whole procedure and some do not. It’s up to you, and it’s completely okay either way. Your friend will be treated compassionately, as we would treat our own best friends. If you would like your pet’s ashes returned to you, we partner with a pet cremation service for aftercare.

If you have any questions about euthanasia services or “quality of life” consultations, please call and we will do our best to ease your mind and help you make the best decision for you and your pet.
