How can I prepare for my pet’s hospice care?

Our team recognizes that this is likely to be one of the most difficult decisions you’ll ever face. We’ll be there for as long as you need us to go over your alternatives and talk it over. Euthanasia is a painless and tranquil procedure, but it is important to know what will happen and how your pet’s body will react. Knowing these facts can help you make an informed decision about euthanasia and make the procedure less stressful.

As animal lovers and owners ourselves, we know how difficult it is to evaluate the health of your pet against his or her quality of life. We’ll take the time to talk with you about the physical and emotional aspects of end-of-life decisions, and we’ll give you the space you need to think about your pet’s specific condition.

If you decide that euthanasia is necessary, we will create a calm and comfortable environment and ensure that the procedure is as painless as possible.

We understand how tough it is to make the decision to euthanize a pet, and we sympathize with you. If at all possible, prepare yourself for it by being knowledgeable and making decisions on logistics ahead of time.
