Caring and Compassionate Pet Euthanasia
Pet Euthanasia is something most people would rather not think about, unfortunately, pets age and become ill, and when they appear to be suffering, sometimes pet euthanasia is the most caring and compassionate decision a pet owner can make for their pet.
Understanding When It's Time to Say Goodbye
It can be difficult for pet owners to determine when it’s time to say goodbye to their beloved pets, especially if your pet has good days and bad days. If you are unsure as to whether it’s time to say goodbye, Compassionate Hearts Veterinary Hospice can evaluate your pet’s health and answer your questions in order to help you make a decision.
1. Your Pet Is in Chronic Pain that Cannot Be Alleviated With Medication
2. Your Pet Has Stopped Eating and/or Lost Weight
3. Your Pet Has Chronic Vomiting and Diarrhea that Cannot Be Controlled
4. Your Pet’s Activity Levels Have Dropped
5. Your Pet Can No Longer Stand or Walk on His or Her Own
At-Home Pet Euthanasia
An increasing number of pet owners are choosing at-home pet euthanasia in order to help their pets be as comfortable as possible and in a familiar environment. The process for at-home pet euthanasia is essentially the same as at a veterinary office. The only difference is that our veterinarian brings the medications to your home to be administered. Being at home also gives you the option of having your pet put to sleep either indoors or outdoors, depending on which you think your pet would prefer. Once the medication has been administered and your pet has passed peacefully, you will be given time to grieve. When you and your family members are ready, we will transport your pet to a local crematory.
