Preparing to say goodbye

Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is a really hard thing to do and we are here to support you both as you go through this process.  From managing pain and discomfort with medicine or home nursing care to easing your pet’s passing with euthanasia, we can help.

We offer quality of life assessment consultations where we can discuss how your pet’s age or illness is affecting both them and you, and can come up with a suitable plan, whether that be palliative care or euthanasia.

Euthanasia at home is the least stressful way for your pet to pass.  In the comfort of their home environment, surrounded by their family, they can drift slowly off to sleep with a sedative injection, prior to the final injection which will stop the heart.  We can assist you with making cremation arrangements and provide information about pet bereavement counselling.  We can also offer support in helping your other pets to deal with the loss.
