End of Life Pet Care: Hospice Care & Pet Euthanasia
When pets reach the end of their lives, whether it’s from a long life or an untimely terminal illness, it’s important to give them the comfort and care they deserve. At DePorre Veterinary Clinic, we offer end of life pet care including hospice care and pet euthanasia. Our team of compassionate pet lovers is here to walk with you on this journey. We help you decide what is right for your pet and when it may be time to say goodbye.
No one wants to say goodbye to a beloved companion, but sometimes it is the most humane thing to do. When your pet is no longer themselves and they struggle every day with pain and immobility, pet euthanasia becomes an appropriate option. Our staff are here to walk you through an assessment of your pet’s condition, so you don’t have to make this hard decision on your own. We’ll evaluate their quality of life together and discuss any other options for end of life pet care. If your pet’s suffering outweighs any hospice care, we’ll decide on pet euthanasia.
A euthanasia procedure is peaceful and dignified for your pet. We administer the euthanasia in our hospital, and you are welcome to stay with your pet or leave the room if you prefer. The medicine works very quickly and your pet will not feel a thing. After the procedure, it’s best to have plans already in place for their after-care, whether burial or cremation. Please discuss these options with your family, and plan ahead so you don’t have to worry about the details on the day.
