Euthanasia and End of Life Care

We provide gentle and peaceful in-home euthanasia for dogs and cats.  These appointments can be held in your home, outside, at a favorite park, or other locations depending on what your pet and family prefer.  

Appointment Information

  • Appointment is done where pet is most comfortable
  • Any and all family can be present, including other pets (we encourage it)
  • We can honor and respect any ceremonial desires your family may have
  • Appointments are usually about 1 hour but can last up to 2-3 hours
  • We can take payment information prior to the appointment so we can focus solely on your family at the appointment
  • We do what we can to bring peace and comfort to your pet including
    • Treats
    • Blankets
    • Sitting on the floor (or couch, bed, anywhere!)
    • Sedation/pain medication prior to any handling

How do we differ from other end of life services?

  • When you are ready, we give a pre-medication that includes a heavy sedative and pain reliever so your pet is relaxed and comfortable during the whole process
  • We personalize the plan to what is best for your pet and family
  • We spend as much time with you and allow you to spend as much time needed to say goodbye
  • If you wish, we will bring your pet to the crematorium.  We do this with them wrapped in a soft, homemade blanket.  Our blankets are donated by a family in memory of their dog, Summer, who was a previous hospice patient of ours.  Your pet is NEVER put into a bag or freezer and while this is hard to imagine, it is common for most cremation services.
  • After the appointment, we bring your pet directly to the crematorium rather than schedule a time for them to be picked up.
  • The crematorium we prefer is Pets Remembered in New Brighton, MN.  Pets Remembered only offers single, true individual cremation and your pet’s ashes are available for return within 24-48 hours.

 

 

If this is an emergency, please call our clinic. You will receive confirmation from our staff within 48 hours of your appointment time and date. Thank you.
