Saying goodbye to your pet can be extremely difficult. The process can be emotionally and mentally draining. We don’t want you to be alone at the end stages of a pet’s life, and we promise to do everything we can to make it easier on you and your pet. Most of all, we promise to treat each case with compassionate and understanding care.
Knowing when the time is right can be a difficult choice. There are many factors that go into deciding to euthanize a pet, and it is a personal issue that differs from pet owner to pet owner. But every pet owner is inevitably faced with making that tough decision, and we want to be there alongside you to aid in any way we can.
When the doctor arrives at your home, she will first give your pet an injection that is a combination of 1. strong pain control, 2. anti-anxiety medication, and 3. sedation. This ensures he is feeling pain-free, worry-free, and starting to get sleepy. This usually takes about 10 minutes, depending a bit on his body.
Once he is calm and pain-free, the doctor gives the euthanasia solution. This is literally an overdose of an anesthetic agent, so it will cause him to continue to get comfy and sleepy until he goes under general anesthesia, then passes away essentially in his sleep. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do to make this process easy on you as his family, but we can certainly make it easy and stress-free for your beloved pet.
Dealing with the end of a pet’s life is never easy, but we want to do what we can to make the process less difficult. Please contact us today to learn more about our euthanasia services.
