Hospice pet care and compassionate home euthanasia

Why Pet Euthanasia At Home? Part 1, From Your Pet’s Point Of View

Some people may scoff at the idea of needing pet euthanasia at home. They obviously don’t share the love of an animal like you have with your companion.

What are the advantages that come with having in home pet euthanasia when compared to having it occur at the vet? Let’s take a look at it from your pet’s point of view:

Veterinary Clinic Pet Euthanasia – As much as we prefer the service we provide, we’re not going to disparage the wonderful work that veterinarians do in taking care of pets at the end of their lives. The surroundings, however, just can’t compare to your home. A vet clinic is filled with unfamiliar smells, not just of other animals that have come through the doors but also of medicines, gauze, and untold hundreds of other scents that can confuse your pet. Also, the veterinary clinic might not have the best associations to your pet, depending on the care they’ve received there before.


At Home Pet Euthanasia – There aren’t many places that are more comfortable for your pet than your home. Whether it’s in their bed, on yours, a warm dryer, on the couch, or in your backyard, it’s important to calm your pet as much as possible as they make their way into the next life. Familiar scents, sounds, and all the people you need (and they need) can surround them wherever they need to lay. You’ve created the space they live in, so it’s a good thing that they’re last memories will be of familiar surroundings.


In the end, you don’t want anything to distract your pet and take their focus away from the time they’re spending with you in their last moments. Though we’d prefer you never need it, give us a call when it time for cat or dog euthanasia at home. You provide the space, we’ll provide the grace.
