End of Life Pet Care

A difficult decision.

When a pet’s quality of life deteriorates to the point where they experience more bad days than good days, you may be faced with the difficult decision regarding whether to choose euthanasia.

The same way we provide compassionate care for pets in their early days, we’re prepared to support you and provide end of life care for them during their last. As partners in your pet’s health, we’ll make sure you’re informed about all potential treatment options before you make a decision. We understand that making that kind of choice is never easy, but we promise to be there every step of the way. 

Should you decide euthanasia is the right choice for your pet, we’ll prepare you for the process and answer any questions you may have about what’s going to happen. We hope you’ll find some comfort knowing our humane methods will ensure your pet is laid to rest peacefully.  

Coping with Pet Loss

Pets are family and losing them comes with the same grief as any other loss. If you’re struggling with grief following the loss of your pet, remember to:

  • Give yourself time to mourn and cry 
  • Do your best to stick to your regular routine
  • Talk about your feelings with family, friends, or even our hospital staff
  • Memorialize your pet in a way that’s special to you 

You can use these resources if you need additional support:

In-Home Euthanasia Service

Our large animal doctors are now offering in-home euthanasia services for our dog and cat patients.

We understand that electing euthanasia is a difficult decision, and there are a multitude of reasons why visiting our clinic may not be the right choice for you. With that in mind, we are offering a mobile service to meet your needs. This service does look a little different from the service offered in our clinic.

When scheduling your in-home euthanasia appointment, our care team will ask about cremation services. Depending on your location, time of day, and size of your pet, we may or may not be able to bring it back to the clinic for cremation services. Additionally, we will take payment for your appointment at that time and will ensure we have paperwork ready for you to sign.

When our doctor arrives at your house, they will go through the procedure and then provide sedation medication. This medication will cause your pet to fall asleep. Once your pet is adequately sedated, our doctor will administer the euthanasia solution. This euthanasia solution is an overdose of anesthetic medication meaning it will continue to relax them and ultimately stop their heart. This process may take a few minutes. However, it is peaceful.

Please reach out to us at (920) 361-2101 if there’s anything we can do for you.
