At Home Euthanasia

Appointments

We have appointments available during the day, night and weekends.   If your pet is in need of immediate care, we will make every effort to be available as quickly as possible.

What to Expect

Outlined below are a few general things to expect from a home visit euthanasia. If you have any questions, special desires, or need any help in your decision-making, please do not hesitate to ask.  

Before the Vet’s Arrival      

Take time to consider any arrangements you would like to make before the actual appointment, such as family or friends that would like to be present, any special family or tributes/ceremonies you would like to have arranged.  Plan to have other family members and pets say goodbye if they will not be present on the day of the appointment.


Find a quiet place where you and your pet will feel most comfortable. You may choose any place that is comfortable for you and your pet, such as a favorite room, a special place in the house, or even somewhere quiet outdoors. If you have a cat or small dog, the procedure can often be done with your pet in your lap. 

The Appointment

The first few moments of the appointment will be spent organizing the required paperwork. Feel free to ask questions if needed. Then, once you are ready, a sedative will be given to your pet to make them very relaxed and sleepy for the procedure.  Everything will be done at the pace you and your pet dictate. The actual procedure is quite simple and peaceful.  Once you and your pet are ready, the final drug is given, usually in a vein.  It works very rapidly, usually only seconds.  Dr. Sabrina will then confirm that your pet has passed on.  After, you may continue to spend as much time as you need with your pet.
