Caring and Compassionate Pet Euthanasia
Euthanasia is something most people would rather not think about, unfortunately, pets become ill or can suffer from irreversible diseases or trauma, 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 Medical Center of McAllen/Pet Doctor 911 can evaluate your pet’s health and answer your questions in order to help you make the best decision for your beloved pet.
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 where you can say your goodbyes and hold your pet while he or she passes peacefully.
During the procedure, your veterinarian will give your pet a sedative to relax your pet, then the medications that help your pet pass peacefully is administered. Once your pet has passed, you will have the option to take your pet home for burial, or we can help you send your pet to a place where he or she can be cremated and arrange for your pets ashes to be returned to you.
We know these are tough decisions and we are here to help you the best that we can.
