End of Life

What Is Euthanasia?

Euthanasia is the process by which an animal is put to sleep in order to avoid prolonged suffering. Typically, the euthanasia is done via an injection, which is regarded as more ethical and safer than other methods. Once injected, the pet will enter an irreversible state of unconsciousness due to their brain ceasing to function.

Does Euthanasia Hurt?

Euthanasia is a painless procedure. The pet might feel some discomfort from the injection but the passing is gentle, almost like falling asleep.

Why Should Someone Euthanize Their Pet?

In most scenarios, euthanasia is something of a last resort for a pet in dire straits. Whether it is due to illness, old age, or injury, euthanasia may be used as a means by which to relieve an animal from suffering when no reasonable alternative is available.

When Should I Get Euthanasia Services for My Pet?

Considering how important our pets are to us, it makes sense that you might be cautious to rush into euthanasia as an option. Even in cases where it seems like it's time for the pet to go, you might be hesitant to say goodbye. So when should it be done?

A veterinarian on our team can help guide you through the decision making process although you will ultimately have the final choice. A vet can assess your pet's individual needs and figure out your pets quality of live, and when euthanasia may be the appropriate solution.
