End of Life Care
The hardest part of being a pet owner is knowing that our beloved animal companions don’t live as long as we do. This inevitable fact of life is difficult to confront, but if your pet is terminally ill, has a medical condition that is extremely painful, or is suffering from the ailments of old age, it may be time to consider end of life care.
Our caring, compassionate staff considers you and your pet part of our extended family. We will help you through this painful experience and will remain sensitive to all of your end of life care decisions.
We offer hospice services so that your pet can preserve his or her dignity and keep comfortable during these final days and moments. We also offer humane euthanasia services, which we conduct with the utmost respect, compassion and care.
We can assist in providing After Life Care with access to cremation services where cremains can be saved and returned to you or respectfully and honorably scattered.
Pet Loss Grief Library
For those dealing with the loss of a pet, we also provide access to our pet loss Grief Library. This is a great resource to help you through this emotional time. You can read articles and stories from others who have experienced a similar loss.
How you decide to proceed with your pet’s end of life care is an extremely personal decision. We are here as friends and professionals to let you know that you don’t have to make this difficult choice alone. We will help meet special requests and will answer any questions you have about our end of life services.
We are deeply sorry that your pet can’t stay with us forever. We are here to assist you through this difficult time. Please give us a call to learn how we can help.
