Euthanasia And Cremation

Cat & Dog Euthanasia & Cremation Services

Our pets' lives can never be long enough. In time, you will need to make difficult decisions regarding your companion's end-of-life care. Addressing the question "does my pet have a good quality of life?" is one of the biggest challenges in pet ownership. Our team members understand this, and want to do everything possible to help you through the decision-making process.

Consequently, as pets age, they can develop various health issues including arthritis, incontinence and diabetes. Keeping them healthy and comfortable is imperative. We like to see older pets more often to monitor their health and check for problems. If your pet is happy and functioning well, we'll continue the treatments needed to keep them at that level.

However, if your pet's health is declining or has a poor prognosis, we may suggest cat or dog euthanasia as the most humane option. For pets with terminal illnesses or irreversible conditions, euthanasia is the kindest course of action. We want to help you relieve their suffering in any way possible.

What To Expect

If you choose to go forward with euthanasia for your pet, we will help you choose a time. Many clients request home euthanasia through our mobile vet service or you may come to one of our offices with friends and family members that you want to have there for support. Our veterinarians and staff will take every precaution to ensure that your pet’s final moments are as comfortable and peaceful as possible.

To help pet owners remember their loved ones, we provide private cremation on-site at our Dundee location. We also partner with a local crematory if you choose communal disposition for your pet's ashes. Your pet will be treated with the utmost dignity and respect. With private cremation, your pet's ashes will be returned to you in a wood urn.

We never want our clients to feel rushed when making difficult decisions about their pets. If you are concerned about your pet's health and would like to know their options, please contact us. We're here to help and offer support whenever you need it.
