Pet Euthanasia Veterinarian
The choice to euthanize a beloved pet who is in suffering is a deeply personal and difficult decision. We know this firsthand, not only as Veterinarians, but as pet owners. Euthanasia literally translates to “good death,” and its purpose is to make a difficult time more bearable for you and your pet. Humane euthanasia allows us to painlessly end the life of a pet who is sick beyond recovery, in order to prevent his or her unnecessary suffering.
No one but you can decide what is right for your pet. To those who are seeking advice, however, we do have some to offer. Consider the things which are necessary for your cat or dog to have a good day. These vary from animal to animal. For some, a good day may mean being able to take a walk around the yard or being able to eat a meal without being prompted. If the things which make your pet happy become impossible for him or her, it may be time to consider euthanasia. We have also found that, though it is not uncommon for owners to regret not euthanizing a pet who was in pain earlier than they did, seldom, if ever, do owners feel that they euthanized a pet in pain too early.
Whatever, your choice, it cannot be easy to say goodbye. Over the years spent caring for a pet, so much can change, and yet the companionship, comfort, and unconditional love the pet gives his or her owner remains. So when the time comes for pets to leave this earth, it is only natural and totally healthy that their owners grieve at their loss. There have always been and will always be those people who do not understand the depth of the bond a human and animal can have, and therefore cannot relate to the pain that follows when they leave us. But there will also always be those who do understand.
While some pet owners are lucky enough to have family and friends who are supportive in this regard, not all pet owners are so fortunate. In either case, know that we will be there for you and your pet through to the end. We provide euthanasia with compassion and expertise, and, when the time comes, cremation services. We are proud to help animals say goodbye with as little distress and discomfort as possible.
