End of Life Consults and In-Home Euthanasia

Your pet may be very sick, very old – or both.  We understand how emotional and difficult it can be navigating through your pet’s care when quality of life becomes consideration in the prognosis.  Our veterinarians will help you make honest and sincere end of life decisions through information, guidance and support when you have questions like:

  • How do I know it’s time to put my pet to sleep?
  • What happens when a veterinarian puts a pet down?
  • What can I do to make this less difficult on my children, family and friends?

If it’s more comfortable to say good-bye in the comfort of your home, our veterinarians are happy to arrange a house call for in-home euthanasia services.

We also have many grief support resources for you and your family during this difficult time.
