When is Euthanasia Recommended?
Choosing euthanasia for your pet is never easy, but we may suggest it as the best option for them if their health and well-being have greatly diminished. To determine when an in-home euthanasia procedure is appropriate, it’s important to gauge your pet’s quality of life and consider whether anything can be done to improve it. For dogs and cats that are terminally ill or injured with little to no hope of recovery, euthanasia is the most compassionate course of action.
How to Prepare for a House Call Euthanasia Appointment
On the day of your pet’s euthanasia procedure, designate a room or space that is clean, quiet, and comfortable. This can be in your living room or out in your backyard. We also recommend having cremation arrangements made in advance, if you are interested in receiving your pet’s ashes or having a special keepsake made. This will help your appointment go more smoothly.
