In-Home Pet Euthanasia Services
Euthanasia is the most difficult decision we face as pet owners. It can be difficult to determine the “right time” for your pet. Some things to consider are:
- Can your pet’s condition be improved by surgery or medication?
- Is your pet eating?
- Can your pet get around comfortably?
- Is your pet able to enjoy activities that he/she always enjoyed?
- Is your pet breathing comfortably?
Take Action to Get Diagnostic Testing and Treatments
If you feel your pet’s health is declining, you should always schedule an appointment with a veterinarian to assess what diagnostics or treatments may be available. Often, owners do not realize there are treatment options available until it is too late. Sometimes diagnostics can at least help you understand what the condition is and provide peace of mind in making the decision to euthanize.
Say Goodbye On Your Own Terms
Whether you need help assessing the best option for your pet, or have made the decision to euthanize, we are here for you. In-home pet euthanasia can greatly reduce the stress on you and your pet by allowing you both to stay in the comfort of your home. We are very flexible about performing the procedure in your pet’s favorite spot or even outside. We want you to have as much peace with the process as possible.
For the comfort of your pet, we place IV catheters in all of our patients prior to euthanasia. This gives us access to a vein without having to poke the pet multiple times. We administer an anesthetic agent first to be sure your pet is anesthetized prior to administering the euthanasia solution. The euthanasia solution itself is a potent anesthetic overdose and stops the heart quickly without pain.
Why Choose In-Home Pet Euthanasia
There is a huge difference between saying goodbye in the privacy and comfort of your home versus taking your pet to the vet’s office for that last, dreaded trip. You undoubtedly want your pet to be comfortable at home with you in their last moments, which usually means:
- You want your pet to feel your reassuring touch
- You want them to be on their soft, comfortable bed
- You want these last moments to be stress-free and in familiar surroundings
- No cold, stainless steel table, or loud waiting room and surrounding exam rooms
- You want this moment to be quiet, calm, and in an environment of personalized-care
We offer a compassionate, caring and gentle in-home pet euthanasia service, focused on providing your ideal environment to say goodbye to your pet.
