The goal of in home euthanasia is to give your dog or cat a peaceful passing at home. We start by giving a medication that is part pain medication and part sedative. This medication will help to alleviate any pain your pet might be in and ease them to sleep. This medication usually takes 5-10 minutes to take effect. During this time you can be with your dog or cat and give him or her lots of love and reassurance. We then will give a second medication that will allow your pet to pass peacefully within a few minutes.
You may take as much time as you need with your pet after they have passed. We will then take care of all aftercare arrangements for you. This allows you to focus on taking care of yourself and your loved ones after you say goodbye.
You’ll be able to be with your dog or cat throughout this entire process to help him or her to be calm and comforted.
