Caring and Compassionate Pet Euthanasia
Euthanasia is something most people would rather not think about, unfortunately, pets become old and ill, and when they appear to be suffering, sometimes pet euthanasia is the most caring and compassionate thing a pet owner can do for their pet.
Understanding When It's Time to Say Goodbye
It can be difficult for pet owners to determine when it’s time to say goodbye to their beloved pets, especially if your pet has good days and bad days. If you are unsure as to whether it’s time to say goodbye, Care More Animal Hospital can evaluate your pet’s health and answer your questions in order to help you make a decision.
1. Your Pet Is in Chronic Pain that Cannot Be Alleviated With Medication
2. Your Pet Has Stopped Eating and/or Lost Weight
3. Your Pet Has Chronic Vomiting and Diarrhea that Cannot Be Controlled
4. Your Pet’s Activity Levels Have Dropped
5. Your Pet Can No Longer Stand or Walk on His or Her Own
In-Office Pet Euthanasia
Many pet owners choose in-office pet euthanasia. We do not offer at home euthanasia. If you are looking for in home euthanasia please visit https://www.lapoflove.com/find... for information about local in home euthanasia.
If you are concerned about your pet's anxiety with coming to our office, we can help you make your pet’s final car ride more comfortable by providing you with a sedative that you can give to your pet prior to arriving at our veterinary office.
Once you arrive in our office, you will have the option of choosing how involved you wish to be in your pet’s final moments. If you wish to stay with your beloved pet throughout their final moments, our team will escort you to a private room where you can say your goodbyes and hold your pet while he or she passes.
When you get into a room we will have a one of our technicians discuss the procedure with you before the veterinarian comes in. If you have any questions or concerns we are more than happy to answer them the best we can. Once your pet has passed, you will have the option to take your pet back home for burial, or we work directly with Poteet Funeral Home (Augusta Pet Crematory) where he or she can be cremated. They offer communal cremation where the ashes are not returned and also private cremation where the ashes are returned.
