Making the decision to say goodbye to a beloved pet is never an easy decision. The process can be made less stressful on your pet and family when you can be in the comfort of your home to say your final goodbyes.
Each quality of life visit starts with a discussion about the pet’s medical history and any possible treatment options. If the decision to euthanize is made by the family, Dr. Amanda will answer any questions that you may have and she will walk you through each step of the euthanasia process: sedation to completely relax your pet which is followed by a solution that allows your pet to gracefully go to sleep.
Cremation options are available and will be discussed when scheduling the euthanasia appointment or at the time of the quality of life exam.
Although we will always do our best to accommodate same-day euthanasia requests, we do recommend calling to schedule the appointment a few days in advance when practical, as we do not regularly have same-day availability.
