What is Pet Euthanasia?
Euthanasia is the humane, painless and compassionate procedure of ending your pet’s life. There are many reasons why this may be a reasonable choice for you and your family. If your pet companion is suffering from a terminal or incurable disease, or is unable to enjoy life and their daily activities, euthanasia may be a valid option. It is a peaceful way to end your pets’ suffering and allow them a dignified final farewell.
Benefits of Compassionate Home Euthanasia
For your pet
When your pet companion is at home in their own environment, they are more comfortable and relaxed. At home, they do not deal with the stress of a car ride and a hospital atmosphere. Particularly for a pet in discomfort, a home euthanasia prevents additional stress and the pain of moving.
For you and your family
Euthanizing at home allows the entire family to be present and provides a private and familiar environment to say goodbye to your pet companion. The grieving process can begin in the comfort of your own home, with family who has shared a special life with you. Other pets in the home are able to be present and say goodbye as well.
What happens during Home Pet Euthanasia?
When our doctors come to your home, they will make every effort to make the euthanasia process peaceful for everyone involved. Often a sedative medication will be given to help relieve any pain and allow your pet to relax. Once this medication has taken effect and the family is ready, our doctors will give the final injection which will stop their heart. It is a very fast, effective and pain free process which takes only a matter of minutes to perform. After the euthanasia, our doctors will give you time to spend with your deceased pet to say goodbye.
What happens afterward?

“I didn't even know a service like this exists. I was highly impressed & love the compassion shown.”
“Our family greatly appreciates how kind, compassionate & sincere you all were during our difficult loss. We cannot say thank you enough for allowing Moose to live out his final moments in the comfort of his own home (he really hated the vet!) We wish you would have known him during his better days.”
