Pet Loss Support

Euthanasia and tending to your pets' remains are two of the most difficult issues for pet owners to consider. Asking the question means confronting fear, guilt, and grief.

Euthanasia methods are designed to cause minimal pain and distress. Talk to a veterinarian or staff member at VCA Bakersfield Animal Hospital about pet euthanasia long before it becomes an issue. Find out about your options, make some key decisions ahead of time, and ask us to add this information to your pet's record.

Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and discomfort for you and your pet in the event this option ever has to be considered. There are also Cremation Options available.

All of us at VCA Bakersfield Animal Hospital will do our best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.
