Caring as we do for our patients at every stage of life, we understand the important role we play as they approach end of life. We offer pain management, palliative care for pets with terminal illnesses, compassionate pet euthanasia when appropriate, and tools for memorials and grief support.
Sometimes sick or elderly animals develop pain, as a result of a condition or advanced age. As an owner, it is not always easy to recognize signs of pain. Our veterinarians and staff are trained to identify and reduce or eliminate pain. We understand the use of medications, supplements, and other therapies that mitigate pain and enhance quality of life.
Compassionate Euthanasia Services
Sometimes despite our best efforts and our heartfelt wishes, recovery is not possible for ailing cats and dogs. Providing a compassionate end to suffering and a pain-free passing can be the kindest path.
Euthanasia is never an easy choice or process. Despite that, we will do our best to ease a difficult time. We take the time necessary to consult with owners and clearly explain all the options, so you know exactly what to expect. We provide a private room and always administer sedation first. Your pet’s last moments of awareness with you will be the simple act of falling to sleep, an experience you’ve shared uncountable times with your pet.
Dealing With the Loss of an Animal Companion
To assist owners through what can often be a difficult time, we make sure to have supportive resources on hand for coping with pet loss.
