Dog Euthanasia

Saying goodbye is never easy; our dogs are part of the family and our best friends. We try to make this hard time as easy as we can on both the dog and your family.

What is pet euthanasia and how do I know when it’s the right time?

Pet euthanasia is the act of ending a life peacefully and intentionally to relieve pain and suffering. Euthanasia is a very personal decision, but if your pet cannot do the things they have always enjoyed, or it is causing them discomfort and distress, you may wish to have a quality of life consultation with your veterinarian.

How is the euthanasia drug administered?

The euthanasia drug is administered through an IV catheter.
