Coping with the impending loss of a pet is one of the most difficult experiences a pet parent will ever face. Whether your companion is approaching their golden years or has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, it’s important to minimize any discomfort or distress. As your pet’s health declines, you may elect to care for your pet at home—with the supervision of a veterinarian—or you may decide to end their suffering with euthanasia.
Although it is a personal decision, it need not be a solitary one. Your veterinarian is often the best person to advise you on when the time is right to euthanize—information from medical tests is often more accurate than what a pet owner can observe, and pet owners often delay the moment of euthanasia in anticipation of grief. Observing and keeping an accurate record of your pet in his daily activities can ultimately help you to decide.
When the time is right, please contact our Heavenly Paws Chapel to discuss your individual needs and to schedule an appointment. We provide dignified, private euthanasia services for pet owners who have reached the difficult yet loving end-of-life decision for their pet. Being present at your pet’s euthanasia is your own choice – there is no right or wrong option, only the one that best suits you and your pet.
Please note that while we can also accommodate emergency walk-ins, if you call ahead of time we can better prepare for your pet’s arrival.
All owner-requested euthanasia will require a medical exam as well as proof of ownership. We also ask that you bring any medical records with you, or have your current veterinarian fax them to us at (321) 636-0127.
