Saying goodbye to your loving companion is never easy, but we will do all we can to make the process as comfortable as possible for them.
Is It Time?
A driving factor in this decision should be your pet’s quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you feel like it might be time, please consider these questions:
- Do bad days outnumber good days? Marking this on a calendar can be beneficial.
- Are they able to control their urination and bowels?
- Is your pet constantly in pain or discomfort?
- Are they eating or interested in eating?
- Can they move around on their own?
- Are they still enjoying their favorite activities?
If you ever feel uncertain or uncomfortable, please let us know. We’re always here to help assess their quality of life and help you during this burdensome time.
A Gentle Goodbye
Comfort is our number one priority, so if the idea of at-home euthanasia puts you more at ease, please let us know.
The first thing we will do is place the IV catheter; then, they’ll be given an anesthetic agent, allowing them to drift off to sleep gently and calmly. Once you’re ready, we will provide them with a second injection, letting them pass on without discomfort. No pain. No suffering.
An additional great way to memorialize them is by donating to a local non-profit or rescue. We work with several rescues, and we can help you with the process of a memorial donation. You might also consider going through the Arbor Foundation to plant a tree in loving memory of your pet.
Grieving and Support
Even though your time together has ended, giving them a happy and full life was the best gift you could have ever given them. We want you to remember your pet with that same happiness and joy.
