End of Life Pet Care
A difficult decision.
When a pet’s quality of life deteriorates to the point where they experience more bad days than good days, you may be faced with the difficult decision regarding whether to choose euthanasia.
The same way we provide compassionate care for pets in their early days, we’re prepared to support you and provide end of life care for them during their last. As partners in your pet’s health, we’ll make sure you’re informed about all potential treatment options before you make a decision. We understand that making that kind of choice is never easy, but we promise to be there every step of the way.
Should you decide euthanasia is the right choice for your pet, we’ll prepare you for the process and answer any questions you may have about what’s going to happen. We hope you’ll find some comfort knowing our humane methods will ensure your pet is laid to rest peacefully.
We use Faithful Companion for our cremation services. They offer to make a clay paw print of your pet prior to cremation if you’d like. You can request a group cremation where your pet is cremated with other pets and you do NOT receive ashes back, or you can request a private cremation where your pet is cremated privately and you DO receive their ashes back. We try and make this process as peaceful as possible for you and your pet. We often ask for the invoice to be settled prior to actually performing the euthanasia so that once it’s done you can sit with your pet as long as you’d like and leave discreetly without any interference from us.
Coping with Pet Loss
Pets are family and losing them comes with the same grief as any other loss. If you’re struggling with grief following the loss of your pet, remember to:
- Give yourself time to mourn and cry
- Do your best to stick to your regular routine
- Talk about your feelings with family, friends, or even our hospital staff
- Memorialize your pet in a way that’s special to you
