It’s about Saying Goodbye
Your pet has been there for you through your toughest days, and although it is a painful decision to make, euthanasia is often the kindest gift you can give to your pet. It is an end to their pain and suffering. Euthanasia comes from the Greek words for good death.
We will be honest and frank with you about this deeply personal decision. If you come to the decision to euthanize your pet, we will help you through it. We encourage you to be with your friend if you want to be; euthanasia can be a pleasant, releasing experience. You can help relieve suffering and say goodbye in a strongly supportive environment. Or, we can care for your friend if you feel you cannot be there. One our loving staff members will comfort your pet.
On a limited basis and by prior arrangement, we may be able to perform a euthanasia at your household. Talk to one of our doctors to learn more about this process.
Struggling to come to a decision about this process? This is a very common feeling, you are not alone! Talk to one of our doctors from the comfort of home.
We, more than most people, understand the difficulties that this important decision presents. People often feel guilt and remorse. Let us help you work through the process. You can take your pet’s remains with you for burial at home, or we offer a cremation service. We like to make a permanent paw print with your pet’s name on it for you, at no charge, as a memento. It is a privilege to serve you in this most challenging time.
