With advancements in veterinary medicine, we have been able to provide pets with longer and healthier lives. However, there still comes a point when pets near the end of their natural life. After all treatment options have been exhausted, it is important to assess your beloved animal companion’s quality of life and consider humane end-of-life care. Our veterinary staff is prepared to guide you through the process with all the compassion and respect that you and your pet deserve.
When your pet’s quality of its life is such that you feel euthanasia is necessary, we will help you arrange a peaceful and gentle goodbye.
A dedicated room provides a private quiet space for emotional farewells. We provide your pet a stress free and gradual transition using sedatives and pain medications. A memorial paw print card is created to memorialize your companion. We will then assist you with arrangements for care of your pet’s remains, including cremation and home burial.
