There are many different situations in which euthanasia is the best decision for your pet’s well-being and quality of life. It might be necessary if your pet is battling a terminal illness, has lost its autonomy, has been in a serious accident or exhibited dangerous behaviour that threatens your family’s safety. Whatever your particular situation, we are here for you during this difficult time.
What happens during a euthanasia appointment? Can I stay with my pet?
Euthanasia is peaceful and painless. We’ll give you all the time you need to say goodbye to your beloved companion, and you can choose to stay by their side during the procedure. We administer the euthanasia medication by IV injection, which puts your pet into a deep sleep and then gently stops their heart.
How to ease the grieving process
We recommend talking about it with your entire family, including children. Take the time to fully explain how you came to this decision. Emphasize that it was for your pet’s well-being and to end their suffering. Talk openly about death and give everyone a chance to express themselves. It’s best to allow several weeks or months to properly grieve before adopting a new pet.
