We strive to make a very difficult situation easier on you and your pet.
Many times we find a treatable condition that the pet owner did not know was treatable such as arthritis, ruptured disks, and incontinence in older pets.
We offer PAINLESS at home euthanasia services.
Our doctors have made themselves available to come out to your home so that you and your pet are given the option of a humane euthanasia in a peaceful setting. Having strangers and other pets around at your time of loss and grief is not an ideal setting for saying goodby. Your wishes are always our concern.
We use ONLY the most humane methods and euthanasia solution (concentrated pentobarbital).
Pets are already unconscious by the time the injection is half way finished and feel nothing. We have dozens of testimonials on file regarding our compassionate approach to at home euthanasia, We typically give a pre-euthanasia tranquilizer/pain killer to eliminate anxiety, fear, and pain prior to the actual euthanasia injection.
We DO NOT perform "convenience euthanasia."
Making the decision to put your pet down is a difficult and personal decision and differs with each individual situation. Only pets with terminal illnesses, intractable pain, or those failing with advanced age are considered reasonable requests. There is a veterinarian in our area who euthanizes pets without an exam, diagnosis, or options for helping your pet gain more time. She only euthanizes and always suggests it. We have seen many pets who's owners thought it was "their time" but were able to gain several more good years due to treatment and proper diagnosis. Our doctors will only recommend humane euthanasia if it is absolutely the answer and you have received all the possible options and an accurate prognosis.
How do you know it's time?
The decision to put your pet to sleep is a difficult one and will depend on the individual circumstances of your pet and the quality of life they are facing. Every pet should be examined by an experienced veterinarian to make sure that euthanasia is the right thing for your pet. Pets will have good days and bad, especially if they are elderly or suffering from cancer or arthritis. Here a few things to look for to help you determine whether or not your pet is still experiencing good quality of life:
At Home Euthanasia is the kindest and most compassionate way to say goodbye to a much loved pet. Pets are special friends and family members. We believe that their last moments should be at home and not in a noisy, chaotic clinic full of strange sounds, smells, and strangers. We will help your pet painlessly transition in a tranquil way that is stress free and peaceful. The comfort of home and family gives the pet the reassurance needed to not be afraid or apprehensive and allows you to say goodbye and grieve in private without a public display or any discomfort.
