Euthanasia

 

Making the decision to euthanize your geriatric or ailing dog or cat is probably one of the toughest choices we as owners have to make. Unfortunately, at some point many of us are forced to make this choice, simply out of love for our friend. Euthanization, or “putting a pet to sleep,” as many of us say, is truly an act of kindness when a pet is suffering or not enjoying a good quality of life.  Saying goodbye at home is much more peaceful.  We provide emergency euthanasia services scheduled immediately, including evenings and weekends.  Call 302-893-7872. 

 

People always ask: How will I know it is time? While this is a very personal decision, there are a number of indicators that you can use to help you know when it is time to help your pet pass away.

 

Is your pet eating and drinking?

How well is your pet's pain controlled?

Is your pet acting like himself?

How is her quality of life?

How difficult is it to medicate your pet?

Is your pet suffering and need emergency euthanasia?

 

My job as a mobile veterinarian (and fellow animal lover) is to help you in your decision by providing the best medical information I can about your pet, and then, when it is time, to make the process of saying good bye as easy as possible by providing your pet a gentle exit from this world. I am always happy to talk with you about your choices, and may guide you to other sources of information if I think they may be helpful to you. We schedule our housecall euthanasia appointments only when the pet and family is ready.  If needed will will have multiple phone conversations to help determine the right time.  Unfortunately, sometimes euthanasias need to be scheduled immediately and we provide emergency housecall euthanasia services. 

We can provide cremation services.
