Deciding when the time is right for euthanasia is not always an easy decision. There are many factors to consider, though the most important consideration is based on your cat’s quality of life. No one wants to see their cat suffer and we are privileged in veterinary medicine that we can make sure our pets don’t have to suffer at the end of their lives.

When should I consider euthanasia?

Before deciding that it is time, you may want to consider if you want to be with your cat or not. You should also consider what you would like for the aftercare of your cat.

What happens during euthanasia?

When you bring your cat in for euthanasia, often your cat will have an intravenous catheter placed and may or may not be sedated. Your veterinarian will discuss the procedure with you before they proceed.

Can you stay with your cat during euthanasia?

Owners are certainly able to stay with their pets during the euthanasia procedure.

What is the cost of euthanasia?

This cost may vary. We offer options for the respectful care of your pet’s remains including cremation and ashes in an urn.

Do you offer pet bereavement support service?
