Dog Euthanasia

As hard as it is for us to say goodbye to someone who has been at our side for so many years, it is sometimes the kindest choice, and it is a choice made out of love.

What is pet euthanasia and how do I know when it’s the right time?


Euthanasia means “a good death”. We strive to make it as peaceful and stress-free as possible, using injectable medications. You know your pet better than anyone else, and we can help to guide you in making your decision. It is a difficult and personal decision made with you and your veterinarian.

Can I say goodbye to my pet in the comfort of our home?


Yes, we can arrange a house call.

What drug is used?


For most pets, we use a combination of pain medication and sedatives to minimize anxiety. This is followed by an intravenous injection of barbiturate that acts within minutes.

What’s the cost of euthanasia?


Please call us for any price inquiries- 902-827-4257.

Does the clinic also provide bereavement counselling?


We are here to support you at this sad time. We do not offer formal counselling, but we will help you to find the support you need.
