In-Home Pet Euthanasia

Why Pet Euthanasia At Home?
  • The vet’s office is associated with unfamiliar smells, thermometers, and white coats. Even though pets do not understand or anticipate death, they do anticipate discomfort.
  • At home, your pet is at his or her most comfortable. They don’t need to leave their favorite spot in the sun or move when they are in pain.
  • You can be there by yourself or with the whole extended family. You can take your time. Plus, you don’t need to drive home afterwards.
  • Death is a major life transition. Euthanasia at home minimizes the medical aspect of this transition and allows you to focus on your pet.

What to Expect

Our veterinarian will arrive, greet you and your pet, and review paperwork. This can be filled out ahead of time by downloading the consent form. We will review the process and answer any questions.

We will administer a sedative plus a pain medication to allow your pet to relax into a deep sedation in about 10-15 minutes. You will be right by their side. We will inform you of the final procedure, allowing you to decide to stay or seek comfort in another location. A temporary IV catheter is then placed and the last medication is given.

If you seek more information regarding the process review the Paws into Grace Ebook.

What about the kids?

We welcome having children and other family members present. This is an important life lesson for kids, and although they are sad, they also learn that death is ok to talk about. Our Family Support Team is here to help you through the process.

In addition to our regular euthanasia service, we also offer a Family Package and a Celebration of Life, which is designed to offer family support and create a transitional ceremony surrounding the euthanasia. If you would like one-to-one help or would like to schedule an appointment, we are also available at 619-717-8646.
