For many animals, going to the vet is stressful and scary. Some animals don’t like getting into a car, let alone going into a building filled with confusion, unusual smells, and other animals. . At the end of their life, it can be too much for them – and you – to bear. Some people prefer to say goodbye to their pets in their familiar surroundings. Euthanasia performed in your home environment allows you to be by your pets’ during their final moments. Our at home pet euthanasia service ensures a calm and peaceful passing.
Prior to the Procedure:
After introductions, our veterinarian and technician will be happy to address any of your questions or concerns. Any of your particular wishes for the appointment can be brought up at this or anytime throughout the appointment. Our staff is very knowledgeable and can answer any of your questions as they arise. It is important that you are comfortable with what is happening with your pet, so please ask us questions.
Every pet will receive sedation prior to euthanasia. Since every pet is different, we have several types of sedation so we can choose the right protocol for your individual pet and situation. Pain medications are a part of our protocol as well, so your pet will be comfortable. Most of the time, sedation will help your pet to relax, though sometimes it just makes them very sleepy but awake. Either way, they are pain free, relaxed and very comfortable in your arms.
What the Pet will Experience:
Euthanasia means inducing the death of an animal in a humane and painless manner. The euthanasia drug that is used is a very common anesthetic agent. If you have ever had surgery, you should remember the anesthesiologist asking you to count backwards from 10, then you drift off to sleep. This is exactly how your pet will feel. The only difference is euthanasia will use an extreme overdose of the anesthetic agent which will cause your pets heart to stop.
After the Injection:
Your pet will drift off to sleep within moments of starting the IV injection. The veterinarian will listen to your pet after the euthanasia solution has been given and will let you know when your pet has passed, however you will likely already know.
