Saying Goodbye to a Pet is Never Easy

Euthanasia is never an easy choice for a loving pet parent. We are here to guide you through the many decisions required when it's time for your pet to pass on. The procedure can often provide relief from needless suffering due to terminal illness or old age, and we do whatever we can to give you and your pet comfort in these last moments. If their quality of life has diminished beyond improvement, it might be an appropriate time for us to discuss pet euthanasia.

We do not suggest pet euthanasia lightly, but we do aim to be a resource that you can rely on for honest answers. When you think the time may be near, we ask that you consider it for the sake of your pet’s needs, and we'll be there to help guide you.If you’re having trouble making a decision about your pet’s end of life care, you can always turn to us for help. We will not make the decision for you, but we will give you all the information you need to make an informed choice for your pet’s well-being.


Crossing the Rainbow Bridge

If the time comes when you and your veterinarian agree that putting down your pet is the right choice, our team will support you throughout the entire process. We encourage family members to be present to say goodbyes and feel connected to their pet. Our veterinarians will encourage a sedative, which will put the pet into a comfortable sleep, and you’re welcome to hold your pet as they’re getting sleepy.

Once the sedative is in full effect, a veterinarian and technician will help your pet to cross the rainbow bridge. We encourage you to stay with them at this time as it can help provide you closure in the grieving process.

However, we will love and comfort your pet during this time if you choose to not be present.
