Losing a pet is a delicate situation, and we understand the difficulty in having to make that final decision. Our dedicated veterinarians are skilled in assessing pain management and do not recommend euthanasia casually. We also make sure that the process of putting your pet to sleep is carried out in a humane manner.
When being euthanized, pet owners are welcome to be in the room as their pet passes, and if they prefer, a pet can be sedated prior to administering euthanasia. The final injection is a chemical that mimics an overdose of anesthesia, allowing your pet to fall into an eternal sleep. As it enters the bloodstream, the chemical targets the brain and heart, first preventing nerves from sensing pain, then gradually stopping the heart from beating.
While the decision to euthanize a pet is heart-wrenching, it is important for a pet owner to consider the pet's suffering before their own. In circumstances where putting your pet to sleep offers them relief from physical anguish, ending misery can be the best decision you can make for your pet.
