One of the hardest decisions a pet owner has to make is when it is time to say goodbye. Euthanasia is performed by our veterinarian in a quiet room at our hospital or we can arrange to come to your house. Family members and friends are always welcome and you are encouraged to spend as much time as you need before and after your pet has passed. We will provide you with the burial and cremation options which are available for your pet and our team can help assist you with this decision if needed.
Losing a pet can be extremely upsetting, sometimes even more so than you might expect. We have such a close bond with our pets, so letting go is never easy and is often filled with pain, sadness, depression—even anger. Our team understands these feelings, as many of us have also lost pets of our own. The emotions we go through are real and nothing to be ashamed of.
Whether your loss is recent or you’ve been grieving for weeks, we are here to help you through this sad transition. We can also help your children understand and cope with their feelings. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
