End of Life Pet Care

A difficult decision.

When a pet’s quality of life deteriorates to the point where they experience more bad days than good days, you may be faced with the difficult decision regarding whether to choose euthanasia.

The same way we provide compassionate care for pets in their early days, we’re prepared to support you and provide end of life care for them during their last. As partners in your pet’s health, we’ll make sure you’re informed about all potential treatment options before you make a decision. We understand that making that kind of choice is never easy, but we promise to be there every step of the way. 

We offer a comfort room for pet parents who need to say goodbye and thank you to their beloved pets. This room is separated from the hustle and bustle of the main part of our hospital and offers seclusion and comfort. Our comfort room has its own private entrance and exit away from the front lobby.

Because some families would prefer the comfort of their home to our hospital, we also offer house call quality of life and euthanasia appointments. Days and hours vary by doctor. 

Should you decide euthanasia is the right choice for your pet, we’ll prepare you for the process and answer any questions you may have about what’s going to happen. We hope you’ll find some comfort knowing our humane methods will ensure your pet is laid to rest peacefully.  

Tips for Coping with the Loss of a Pet

Coping with Pet Loss

Pets are family and losing them comes with the same grief as any other loss. If you’re struggling with grief following the loss of your pet, remember to:

  • Give yourself time to mourn and cry 
  • Do your best to stick to your regular routine
  • Talk about your feelings with family, friends, or even our hospital staff
  • Memorialize your pet in a way that’s special to you
