Euthanizing a pet is not an easy decision. We are here to discuss options and assist in every way we can during this difficult time.
Euthanasia is commonly referred to as “putting down” or “putting to sleep.” This is a very hard decision many pet owners must make at the last stage of their pet’s life.
Just as we all age, so do our beloved pets. As much as we would love for all of our pets to be in our lives forever, there comes a time to say goodbye. Euthanasia offers a peaceful, controlled option for the end of our pet's life. Based on your pet's quality of life, euthanasia may be something to consider.
When is the time right?
Knowing when the time is right can be a difficult choice. There are many factors that go into deciding to euthanize an animal, and it is a personal issue that differs from pet owner to pet owner. We can help you through this process to make the best decision for your pet.
What should I expect?
Our euthanasia process is designed to be as peaceful as possible. Once you and the doctor have determined that this is the best choice, your pet will have a drug administered that results in deep sedation. Your pet will be asleep when he or she receives a final injection of medication. You may take as much time as needed with your pet during this process.
How should I get more information or ask for help?
We are available to discuss your options. We are very familiar with the experience, and we are able to talk about the process and the feelings that come with it. Please make an appointment or contact us for information on options, timelines, and references for support through the grieving process.
