How to Know When It’s Time

Deciding when to say goodbye to your pet can be challenging. Some signs that may indicate it’s time for euthanasia include:

  • Chronic pain or discomfort that cannot be managed with medication
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss
  • Incontinence or loss of bladder and bowel control
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Loss of interest in activities once enjoyed
  • Decline in mobility
  • Terminal illness with a poor prognosis

If you are unsure whether it’s time to consider euthanasia for your pet, our compassionate veterinarians can help guide you through this difficult decision.

Our Euthanasia Process
Our pet euthanasia process is designed to be as peaceful and gentle as possible. Before the procedure, our veterinarians will explain each step and answer any questions you may have. The process typically involves:

  • Administering a sedative: A sedative is given to help your pet relax and become calm.
  • Administering the euthanasia solution: The euthanasia solution is given via an injection, which allows your pet to peacefully pass away without pain or discomfort.

Aftercare Options
After your pet has passed, you may choose from a variety of aftercare options, including:

  • Individual cremation: Your pet’s remains are cremated individually, and you may choose to receive their ashes in an urn.
  • Communal cremation: Your pet is cremated with other pets, and their ashes are scattered in a memorial garden.
