Knowing when an animal would benefit the most from a humane euthanasia is never easy. Our doctors are here to help answer the question

IS IT TIME?

An appointment allows the doctor to make an accurate assessment of your pet’s cognitive and physical health to make the suggestion accurately. Do understand that you are not forced to make any decisions on the spot. For many of us, we need time to think things over, and that’s okay.

We love your pets as much as you do, and euthanasias are never easy. But we’re here to help you make that call and keep the process as calm and easy as possible. The receptionist will go over the process with you, prior to the procedure taking place. Here is what you can expect when it comes time:

Paperwork & Process

We will go over paperwork and discuss euthanasia and body care options with you. We hate to discuss money, especially at a time like this, so we try to make payment as easy as possible for you. For some, this may be your first euthanasia, and we do not want to keep you in the dark. We are here to make this as easy as possible.

Sedation

Your technician will take your pet to the back to place the IV catheter, and will bring your pet back to the room once the IV is placed. Next, your doctor will administer the sedation. This will happen while you are in the room, so your pet will know that they are taking a great nap surrounded by the people they love.

Goodbyes

Your technician and veterinarian will discuss if they’re having any difficulty and explain what they are doing throughout the process. Remember, you are more than welcome to spend as much time with your pet as you wish. We understand how difficult this may be, and want you to have the best possible experience considering the circumstances.

Remembered

After you have left the room, we request that you turn off the lights and close the door to allow your pet privacy. Your technician will return to the room after you have left and respectfully cover your pet’s body with a soft blanket. There are many ways to remember a lost pet, please talk to your technician about our options.

Get the best care for your best friend.
