Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is one of the most difficult times in a family’s life. Providing compassionate care in your own home offers comfort for your pet and family during an end-of-life experience.
In-Home Hospice Care
As a pet nears the end of life, there may come a time when hospitalized treatments result in more stress to your pet. Our veterinarians will work closely with you to determine when that time comes and provide comforting care that will help your pet live the end of their life without pain and surrounded by those who love them most.
When the time comes to say goodbye, doing so from your own home provides an experience that is more comforting for your pet and family. Our compassionate team will work closely with you to guide you throughout the entire process. We will help determine what option is best for your pet, scheduling your appointment as quickly as possible to ensure your pet is comfortable and calm throughout the experience.
Your In-Home Euthanasia Experience
Euthanasia at home provides a compassionate end-of-life experience for your pet where they will feel calm, loved, and surrounded by those who bring them comfort. Owners will find comfort understanding exactly what will happen throughout this process.
Scheduling the Appointment
We will always do our best to accommodate your request for an appointment on short notice. Please contact us as soon as you know that the time is coming, so we can help to make the process as easy for you as possible.
What to Expect at the Appointment
The veterinarian will begin the appointment by spending a few minutes meeting with you and your pet and perform an examination. After meeting and examining your pet, there will be follow-up paperwork. Your veterinarian will discuss each step of final care and provide memorial options.
The euthanasia process is peaceful and compassionate. Your pet can be in a comfortable, familiar spot, such as on a favorite chair or in a cozy corner of the room. The doctor begins by administering a sedative that, within a few minutes, will help relax and send your pet into a deep sleep. This period offers you a calm, quiet moment you can share with your pet. Following this at your discretion, the doctor will administer the final injection that gently lets your pet pass. Throughout the visit, you may choose to be at your pet's side or you may choose to take some time to yourself. Afterward, you will have a few minutes with your pet to say a final goodbye.
Before the visit, you should give some thought to your wishes for final arrangements. We can take your pet's body for cremation or burial.
