The experienced team at Wishing Well Veterinary Hospital knows how much you love and care for your pet. The bond we form with our companions can make it even more difficult to decide whether it’s time to say
If you’re concerned about your pet’s well-being, our veterinarians can help you determine if dog or cat hospice care or humane euthanasia is necessary for your pet. We can assess your pet’s health and help you make the most informed decision for their quality of life.
What to Expect with Humane Euthanasia
The cat and dog euthanasia process is one of the hardest pet owners will have to go through, but at Wishing Well Veterinary Hospital, you won’t go through this alone. Our team is here to walk you through the process and paperwork and continually strive to do what’s best for your pet’s health and comfort. When you come in for your pet’s humane euthanasia, here is what to expect:
We understand the last thing on your mind is filling out paperwork or worrying about payment options, but as always, we want to make sure you are informed about your pet’s care. Our team wants to make this process as easy as possible for you and are here to accommodate you as best we can.
Prior to dog and cat euthanasia, we encourage you to spend as much time as you’d like with your pet. We will administer a sedative to prevent your pet from experiencing any stress or discomfort. After the sedation has taken effect and you are ready, we will administer the euthanasia injection. Our team will never rush you through this process. We will only provide the injection when you are ready, and you can continue to spend time with your pet for as long as you feel comfortable.
Once you have left the exam room, a member of our team will cover your pet with a soft blanket and carry out the body care options you previously discussed with us. We also offer various ways to remember your pet and our team would be happy to discuss those with you at your convenience.
