End of Life Pet Care

A difficult decision.

When a pet’s quality of life deteriorates to the point where it experiences more bad days than good days, you may be faced with the difficult decision regarding whether to choose euthanasia.

In the same way we provide compassionate care for pets in their early days, we’re prepared to support you and provide end-of-life care for them during their last. As partners in your pet’s health, we’ll make sure you’re informed about all potential treatment options before you make a decision. We understand that making that kind of choice is never easy, but we promise to be there every step of the way. 

Should you decide euthanasia is the right choice for your pet, we’ll prepare you for the process and answer any questions you may have about what’s going to happen. We hope you’ll find some comfort in knowing our humane methods will ensure your pet is laid to rest peacefully.  

For more information on end-of-life decisions, please visit the websites listed below.

We recognize that some pet owners may wish to have hospice and end-of-life services performed in the comfort of their own homes. Unfortunately, we do not offer house calls or in-home care. Clients looking for in-home services can contact the following practices:

Coping with Pet Loss

Pets are family and losing them comes with the same grief as any other loss. If you’re struggling with grief following the loss of your pet, remember to:

  • Give yourself time to mourn and cry 
  • Do your best to stick to your regular routine
  • Talk about your feelings with family, friends, or even our hospital staff
  • Memorialize your pet in a way that’s special to you 

You can use these resources if you need additional support:
