Peaceful In-Home Euthanasia Services

The Decision

This is a question that I am often asked --- how do you know when it's time to say goodbye?  We start by evaluating each pet's quality of life, including their ability eat and drink, making sure they can move around freely, that they have adequate pain control, and that they're still able to do some of the things that they enjoy... the things that give each pet their own personality.  I am available to provide hospice consultations to help determine if your pet can benefit from any medications to in the later stages of their life, as there are many options for pain relief and palliative care available for our small animal companions.  During this time, I can also help decide if the time is getting close to say goodbye.

Reducing Stress and Anxiety​

Once we have made the decision, our goal becomes to provide a gentle and peaceful passing for your pet.  At the time of the appointment, once the family is ready, I administer an injection of sedation to ease your pet and allow them to rest gently.  Many families use this time to sit with their pet and talk about the memories they've made over the years.

Crossing the Rainbow Bridge​

After the sedation takes full effect we continue with the peaceful euthanasia.  The entire family can be gathered around to help your faithful companion cross over the rainbow bridge.


Cremation and Burial Options​

Once we are finished, you can take as much time as you need to say goodbye.  For after care, you can choose to have a home burial, or I can help arrange for cremation.  An individual cremation includes a choice of complimentary urn (shown below) that can be personalized if desired, as well as hand delivery of ashes once they're returned.  A communal cremation includes your pets ashes being interred at the Angel View Cemetery.  You may also decide to have a memorial clay paw print made if you choose to have your pet cremated (these are returned in a small leatherette display case with room to place a picture of your pet alongside the paw print).
