Caring for a pet means preparing for every stage of their life, including the difficult time of saying your final goodbye. Deciding on euthanasia for your beloved pet and companion is painful. That's why we go above and beyond to ensure your pet will receive the utmost compassionate care to make the process easier for you.
When should I consider euthanasia for my pet?
Deciding when the best time is for euthanasia is a complex decision. It takes into consideration many factors, such as their current quality of life and the type of disease they may be suffering from. Below are some questions to consider:
- Can your pet eat, drink, sleep, and/or move around comfortably?
- Do they respond to your presence and greet you?
- Are they visibly in discomfort or in pain?
In many cases, a consultation with your veterinarian to first discuss your pet's quality of life may be beneficial before making a decision. To schedule a consultation with us, call us at 416-537-9677.
Can I stay with my pet during the process?
Yes, of course. It is ultimately up to you and your comfort level, but the procedure will be performed in a private room. If you choose to stay, you can take as much time as you would like to say your final goodbyes.
What happens after my pet is euthanized?
Once you have said your goodbyes, we will transport your pet to a crematorium where group and private cremation services are available. With private cremation services, your beloved pet will be individually cremated and returned to you. Some may wish to commemorate their loved ones with special memorial products. All options will be discussed with you before the procedure and all requests will be carried out with utmost respect and care.
