Euthanasia Services

Our staff is here to help you with euthanasia and end of life decisions.  There comes a time in the life of all pets when the possibility of a recovery to a comfortable existence is highly unlikely.  Caretakers of an animal must consider all possibilities to relieve suffering.

One option is the palliation of symptoms.  Proper nursing care is critical when patients cannot care for themselves.  Pain, nausea, digestive irregularities, respiratory congestion and movement limitations should be medically addressed. 

Often medical intervention may not provide a level of comfort acceptable to the animal's caretakers.  Euthanasia is often considered in these circumstances.  The decision to euthanize a beloved pet is among the most difficult choices a pet owner ever has to make.  Consultation with a veterinarian will help owners determine whether euthanasia is appropriate.

Prior to euthanasia, pet owners should decide how the pet's body will be cared for. This reduces the emotional stress at the time of the procedure. Our hospital provides a range of respectful options, from burial to private cremation.

Through consultation with the veterinarian and the hospital staff, the last days of a pet's life can be comfortable and can reflect the care and love that the pet has experienced throughout it's entire life.
