Euthanasia is the humane ending of a pet’s life. Pet euthanasia is a massive overdose of Barbiturate. A tired, relaxing, falling asleep feeling is what your pet experiences.
When should I consider pet euthanasia?
When your cat is having more bad days than good days and their quality of life has drastically declined. Don’t let your cat suffer unnecessarily.
What is the process for cat euthanasia?
When you believe it’s time and you are ready, please call us to book an appointment. When you arrive, you and your kitty and/or family will be put into a quiet room. We then place a catheter into your cat’s vein in their front leg. If your kitty is stressed or obviously upset, we can administer an injection of sedative to help relax him/her. Once everybody is ready, the Dr. comes into the room and injects the overdose into the vein, via the catheter. Then you’re left alone with your pet until you’re ready to leave.
Do you do house calls?
We don’t do house calls normally only for special circumstances. There a lot of very good, caring house call vets who can euthanize your pet, in the comfort of your own home.
Can you stay with your cat during euthanasia?
Of course, you can stay with your kitty during this procedure. Your cat would feel way more comfortable with their owners being present at the end.
What is the cost of at home or in clinic euthanasia?
The cost of euthanasia depends on cremation options etc. Please call our clinic to inquire about prices.
Do you offer pet bereavement support service?
No, we don’t but we can help clients get the help they need.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
