Knowing when is the right time to say goodbye to your beloved companion is never an easy decision to make. Some changes to look for may include a change or reduction in appetite and water intake, loss of interest in play or family interaction, difficulty walking or inability to stand on their own, bladder or bowel incontinence, confusion, and having more bad days than good ones. Click here for a questionnaire* to help assess your pet's quality of life. If you are unsure, your veterinarian can perform a quality of life exam and help you come to the best decision for you and your pet.
Please note, if we have never seen your pet or it has been over a year, an exam may be required to establish the health of your pet prior to performing euthanasia. We offer both in-room (client present) or drop-off (client not present) euthanasia.
Care of Body
Once you've decided that it's time, there are a few options for the care of your pet's body. If you choose to take them home for burial, we will gently place your pet in a burial box for the trip home. Cremation is the alternative to at home burial with services provided by Partridge*. By visiting their website, you can decide which options are most suitable for you and your family.
