One of the most difficult parts of having a pet is saying goodbye.

It can be difficult to know when the time is right to make the call for a compassionate euthanasia. Dr. K can help you come to a decision that works best for your family through a quality-of-life assessment. These exams and the conversations that follow can help pet owners better understand where their pet is at in terms of pain and awareness, as well as the likely progression of debilitating diseases or conditions. You don’t have to take guesses or make the decision alone.

The Euthanasia Process

We start a euthanasia appointment with a sedative to ensure a pain- and stress- free passing. This puts them into a comfortable and gentle sleep. Dogs are generally fully sedated after ten or twenty minutes while cats may only take a few minutes. Once they’re sedated, you can take a moment to say your goodbyes however you feel is best for you and your family. We will then proceed to the next step. A second injection is given, taking only a few moments to take effect. Dr. K will confirm that your pet has passed. You can take as much time as you need to grieve your beloved companion.
Following an in-home euthanasia, Dr. K can help with aftercare by transporting your pet to have their remains cremated and returned. We trust and recommend Pet Loss Center, which provides both individual and non-individual cremation. Individually cremated remains can be picked up by owners from Dr. K’s office or delivered to your home in 14 days in a decorative urn. For those who choose non-private cremation, your pet’s remains will not be returned. Burial at home is also an option open to pet owners.
Paw prints are available for both individual and non-individual cremations.
