Family-Centered Euthanasia

A peaceful passing in the comfort of your own home

It is never easy to say good-bye to a loved one. It is even harder, sometimes, to have to do so outside of the home in an unfamiliar environment. 

With your veterinarian's recommendation, we are able to help ease any suffering or pain of your pet in the comfort of your own home. You will be able to be there with them while they pass into the realm of peace and forever happiness.

 

Answers to your questions

Pets MUST have been seen by a primary or emergency veterinarian within the last 8 months and quality of life discussed. Medical records must be received via email prior to scheduling.

This service is to NOT replace emergency situations where a planned visit cannot be established. 

We do not perform examinations, make medical diagnoses nor prescribe medications under any circumstances. 

Appointments are made at least 24 hours after all information, including medical records, are received.

**With changing rules and regulations in the veterinary requirements, I am unable to provide services to the DC area at this time. Please check again mid-2023 for updates.**

How do I know when it is time?

The answer is not always as easy as we expect or hope it to be.
We can help guide you through this decision.

What is the process?

The process includes an initial intramuscular injectable sedation using a pain tranquilizer- this may sting a little and cause the pet to jump or chatter. When the pet is comfortable, we will shave one or two limbs that will be used to access the veins for the last 1-2 injections. This whole process usually takes about 30-50 minutes total.

Additional Questions

We will need your address, phone number, your pet's name and requested date to visit.

Medical records must be received from your primary vet prior to scheduling. They can be uploaded to your email or sent directly from the animal hospital. 

Email communication is the quickest form of contact as I do work in a clinical hospital during daytime hours.
