Euthanasia-Supporting you and your beloved in your home.  

We believe this time is about your time together.  We believe you and your beloved pet deserve time to say goodbye together. We make time to get to know you, and what you are concerned with before we gently glide your beloved pet into a deep sleep in your lap, on their bed, or in any location they may choose. We want them to be comfortable. They are tucked in with a blanket as they sleep.  Once asleep, we give the last medication to help transition them to what lies beyond. We will discuss with you what might be best for your beloved pet, and the process may include the following:

  • Sedation of your pet with oral medication if they are eating (may depend on the situation) or,

  • Sedation of your pet with injectable medication, including an opioid to relieve their pain

  • Anesthesia (like for surgery) to help your pet have a good, solid sleep

  • Euthanasia, once they are deeply sleeping

We use these techniques as we have found it the most gentle way for your animal to go to sleep.and pass away.

We can help support you with aftercare. Aftercare can include cremation services and memorial items.  We can assist you with your beloved, providing Private or Communal Cremation through Caring Pet Crematory.  We will honor you, your family, and your beloved pet with a brief honoring ceremony if you choose.

In addition, we provide a complimentary ink pawprint, noseprint, and a lock of their fur if you choose.  Additional memorial items are available for purchase.  We can provide a Mr. Rogers book for families with younger children and a list of books for families looking for further grief support.  We also have a list of support groups for grief or other places where you can find additional support.  We have a special memorial gift for all families.

The veterinarians can provide additional support and a quality-of-life discussion for an extra fee at the appointment. Please discuss this with our client caregivers when making the appointment.
