Euthanasia Services

When recovery is unlikely, euthanasia may be the best option for your pet. Relieving your pet's suffering is important when a healthy and comfortable life can no longer be sustained. We understand the significance and difficulty of deciding to euthanize a pet and we will help you determine if it's the right choice.

When to Euthanize

Like humans, animals are susceptible to terminal illnesses and diseases, especially as they grow older. Providing proper hydration, nutrition, warmth, and comfort is important when a pet is suffering from a terminal condition. Any nausea, pain, respiratory congestion, and movement limitations should be treated medically. When addressing these issues is no longer medically possible and the animal is suffering, euthanasia is often considered.

How Euthanization is Performed

Euthanizing a pet is a simple procedure. Owners often sit with and provide comfort to their pet during the process. Both before and during, a veterinarian will explain, step-by-step, the process to a pet owner. A sedative is sometimes given to the pet prior to the euthanasia drug, especially if the pet is scared or stressed.

Administered through an IV or by a shot, various medications are used for euthanization. Most medications work immediately, rendering the pet unconscious and shutting down their brain and heart functions. The entire process happens within a few minutes and can be done in-home or at our office.

Deciding to euthanasia a beloved pet is one of the most difficult decisions a pet owner must make. Consultation with a veterinarian will help you gather all available information about your pet's health situation. Our team will help you decide if euthanization is the appropriate choice for your pet. Hastening a pet's death and relieving its suffering, euthanization may be the best option to help your pet reach peace.
