Cat Euthanasia

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.
