Cat Euthanasia

Euthanasia is never an easy decision to make. During this difficult time, we will do everything in our power to make sure your family and your cat are as comfortable as possible. We provide compassion and support during this difficult time. We are also partnered with Gateway Memorial Services, which offers a wide variety of memorial services for your every need.

When should I consider pet euthanasia?

It is never an easy decision to make. If you feel your cat is in any kind of pain, distress, or simply not enjoying the everyday things they used to, please book an appointment with one of our veterinarians. During the appointment, we will be able to discuss your options, whether it be a treatment plan or euthanasia.

What is the process for cat euthanasia?

After you and the veterinarian have decided that euthanasia is the best option, we provide sedation for your cat. This will help calm them and take away any stress they may be feeling. Our sedation also provides some pain relief. Once it has taken effect, a catheter is placed. The catheter allows us to have direct access to their vein. When you and your family are ready, the veterinarian will then go into the room and inject the euthanasia drug.

Can I stay with my cat during euthanasia?

Absolutely, our veterinarians do not mind if you want to stay with your cat during this procedure. We often encourage it, as it will make your cat feel less stressed as well. If you do not wish to be present, that is also no problem. One of our technicians will be with your pet throughout the whole procedure.

Do you offer pet bereavement support service?

We can provide you with the appropriate contact information for these services as needed.
