Dog Euthanasia

Euthanasia is the most difficult decision a pet owner must make. Our staff are here to evaluate your pet and help you make the best decision for the life of your dog. We are incredibly empathetic during this time and always here to help.

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

Deciding when the time is right is a very personal decision. If you are thinking about this, we encourage you to discuss this with your Veterinarian.

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

There are many veterinarians that offer these services at your home.

How is the euthanasia drug administered?

When performed, the staff will place an IV catheter so that the procedure is as smooth as it can be. The veterinarian will first administer a sedative using the catheter, and then the injection will be given after. We strive to make this procedure as smooth as possible and never rush you as we understand this is the hardest part of owning a pet.

What is the cost of pet euthanasia?

Please call the hospital a member of our team will be able to provide you with more information. Our contact number is 403.457.0911.
