As pet lovers ourselves, we appreciate the strong bond between people and their canine and feline family members, and we understand how difficult it is to face losing them. There comes a time in every pet owner’s life, however, when they must evaluate their beloved pet’s quality of life. Whether our pets are feeling the effects of old age or illness, it can be heart-wrenching to watch them decline in health.
Keeping them as comfortable and as pain-free as possible is our priority once all treatment options have been exhausted. At some point, though, you may have to face the tough question of whether or not to have your pet humanely euthanized. Our staff is prepared to guide you through the process with all the compassion and respect that you and your pet deserve. In addition, we also offer sedation during euthanasia to ensure the comfort of both your pet and you.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) website offers this helpful article, Pet Euthanasia: The Last Stage of Care for Beloved Pets for pet owners facing that difficult and emotional decision.
We also suggest you visit our pet loss library for end-of-life stories and information on coping with the loss of a pet.
