Caring and Compassionate Pet Euthanasia
Euthanasia is something most people would rather not think about, unfortunately, pets become old and ill, and when they appear to be suffering, sometimes pet euthanasia is the most caring and compassionate thing a pet owner can do for their pet.
Understanding When It's Time to Say Goodbye
It can be difficult for pet owners to determine when it’s time to say goodbye to their beloved pets, especially if your pet has good days and bad days. If you are unsure as to whether it’s time to say goodbye, Animal Clinic of Rogue River can evaluate your pet’s health and answer your questions in order to help you make a decision.
1. Your Pet Is in Chronic Pain that Cannot Be Alleviated With Medication
2. Your Pet Has Stopped Eating and/or Lost Weight
3. Your Pet Has Chronic Vomiting and Diarrhea that Cannot Be Controlled
4. Your Pet’s Activity Levels Have Dropped
5. Your Pet Can No Longer Stand or Walk on His or Her Own
In-Office Pet Euthanasia
Many pet owners choose in-office pet euthanasia. Once you arrive in our office, you will have the option of choosing how involved you wish to be in your pet’s final moments. If you wish to stay with your beloved dog or cat throughout their final moments, our team will escort you to a private room. Prior to the euthanasia, our team will take your pet to the treatment area and place an IV to make the process of passing much smoother.
During the procedure, you may hold your pet if you wish and your veterinarian will inject the medications that help your pet pass peacefully. Once your pet has passed, you will have the option to take your pet back home for burial, or we can arrange for your pet to be cremated
