The word “euthanasia” is derived from the Greek word “eu” meaning goodly, or well, and “thanatos” meaning death. Euthanasia literally means “good death” and a natural death does not guarantee a good death. Providing a good death for our pets is not quitting, it is an essential treatment option.
Euthanasia is a humane process, where your pet is sedated and anesthetized before they take their final breath. This is why euthanasia has earned the nickname, “putting to sleep” – your pet is truly peaceful asleep during this process.
When and why euthanasia?
As much as we would love for all of our pets to be in our lives forever, there comes a time to say goodbye. Based on your pet’s quality of life, euthanasia may be something to consider – whether it be old age, a chronic or terminal illness, or pain. Euthanasia offers a peaceful, controlled option for the end of our pet’s life.
What should I expect?
Our euthanasia process is designed to be as peaceful as possible, beginning with offering payment options prior to your appointment, or at the start of it. We’ll bring you and your pet into our comfort room, where we’ll issue the sedative, which takes a few minutes to take full effect. You are welcome to stay with your pet during the final euthanasia process, including anesthesia, or you may choose to leave after sedation – we want you to spend the time you need saying goodbye to your pet loved one.
Cremation is a wonderful way to memorialize your pet. We work with spectacular organizations where you can select the urn of your choice, engraving, and other memorabilia, such as ceramic paw prints.
