Saying Goodbye With Pet End of Life Care

Very often, we’ll know pets for their entire lives, and when the time comes to consider euthanasia, we know how hard the decision can be. At our animal hospital, we try to take the pressure off of clients during this difficult time by being your rock during the process.

Honoring Your Pet

Pets enrich our lives and their memories stay with us forever. After the euthanasia process is complete, we help clients decide how they’d like to commemorate their pet’s life. Options include:

  • Taking home the pet for burial. Some clients prefer to do their own burial at home, which we are happy to accommodate. If this is the option you choose, we ask that you check with your local county’s regulations to ensure compliance.
  • Private cremation. We can help facilitate a private cremation, where you’ll receive your pet’s ashes in a beautiful urn that can be displayed or scattered.
  • Group cremation. This option involves a group cremation of pets' remains, and the ashes are not returned.

Outside of those options, there are additional ways to honor your pet, including paw prints, jewelry, and more. If the time comes, our team will guide you through the decisions to help you find the right choice.
