Euthanasia is a professional term used for putting your animal “down” or “to sleep.” It is intended for pets that have a poor quality of life due to illness (often life threatening) or dehabilitated because of old age. Most euthanasias are performed in the comfort room as seen above.
We realize that this may be a time of great stress so we try to make the experience as peaceful as possible for both the pet and owner(s). Some may elect to drop their pet off for euthanasia, while others may want to stay for the procedure or wait in the waiting room until the animal has passed. In special circumstances, home euthanasia may be arranged, however, this service is at the discretion of the veterinarian.
There are several choices for the final resting place of your pet: home burial, pet cemetery burial, group cremation or private cremation. The private cremation option involves the return of the ashes in a special urn or box.
All of these services except the home burial are provided to us by Fond Memories Pet Cemetery. Each service carries a different price.
All information regarding euthanasia and the care of remains can be obtained by contacting our staff.
