When is Pet Euthanasia the Best Option?

To determine whether euthanasia is the right decision for your pet, you need to speak with your vet. We can evaluate your pet’s condition, health history, and current quality of life, and suggest all possible treatment options. It is very important to consider quality of life, because if a pet is suffering daily with no sign of improvement, euthanasia could be the best way to end that suffering and give them peace. Your pet’s well-being and needs are always our priority.

What to Expect with a Euthanasia Appointment

If you decide to schedule a euthanasia appointment for your pet, know that we will do all we can to minimize your pet’s stress and keep them comfortable. We will not put your pet on the exam table, but let them stay at floor level, where they will be less anxious. We will also be sure to give you and your family the privacy and time you need to say goodbye to your loved one.

For the euthanasia procedure, first we administer sedation to help your pet fall into a relaxing sleep. Once they are asleep and you give us permission, we will administer the euthanasia, which acts quickly. Your pet will not feel any stress or pain.

Caring for Your Pet’s Remains

If you have any specific requests for handling your pet’s remains, we recommend making arrangements in advance of your appointment to make the experience a little easier for you and your family. Banks Veterinary Clinic of Beaumont works with Pet Angel to provide cremation services, paw prints, urns, and other keepsakes. Whatever your preferences, we will do all we can to accommodate them.
