In-Home Pet Euthanasia
Facing the end of a pet’s life is one of the most difficult moments for pet owners. With euthanasia, which literally means good death, pet parents can give their pets the final, selfless gift of a peaceful passing when the time is right.
When Is Euthanasia the Best Choice for a Pet?

Deciding when the time is right for euthanasia is tough. Our veterinarians will be with you every step of the way to answer your questions, offer support, and provide expert guidance.
What to Expect During the Process of In-Home Euthanasia
When the time for your pet’s peaceful passing has arrived, we’ll come to your home. Our veterinarian will discuss your pet’s condition with you and answer any questions you might have about your pet’s health or the process. We’ll then ask for your consent and discuss aftercare with you.
Euthanasia begins with the administration of a sedative that calms and relaxes the pet. The euthanasia medication will then be administered intravenously, allowing the pet to pass away peacefully.
We welcome family members to remain with their pets during the process. A pet’s family can provide them with love, comfort, and support throughout their final moments.
