End of Life Care

End of Life Care

It is always a sad and difficult experience when a pet comes to the end of their life. Making the decision to put a pet to sleep is tough. They have been a big part of your life and it is natural to experience grief at the thought of letting them go.

Everybody will process this grief differently and we are here to listen with compassion and without judgement if you need somebody to talk to.

Our experienced team can discuss your options and guide you through this process in a sensitive and humane manner.

What is euthanasia?

Putting your pet to sleep, or euthanasia, is a very difficult decision, and we understand how challenging it can be. However, in certain circumstances, it is the kindest option available to prevent your pet from suffering.

Some illnesses and injuries are beyond our abilities to cure or manage adequately, and if your pet is unable to get better or maintain a good quality of life we may recommend euthanasia.

We always have you and your pet at the centre of end-of-life discussions, and our vets and nurses are happy to talk and listen as you come to terms with this decision.

Once the decision to euthanise your pet has been taken, you will be asked to sign a form giving your consent for the procedure and informing us what arrangements you would like for your pet’s body afterwards.
