Pet End of Life Care Consultations
Does your pet have mobility problems, a chronic illness or other life-limiting ailments? We’ll work with you to formulate safe, effective treatments to relieve their discomfort and restore some of their independence. Your pet’s prognosis is a major factor in deciding the next step in their care. If they have the potential to improve, we are glad to help them do so.
If your pet has a poor prognosis you can expect an honest, compassionate explanation from your veterinarian about what would be best for their well being. In cases where pets are suffering from terminal illness or severe injury, euthanasia is the kindest, gentlest option to alleviate that suffering. Understand that the final decision is yours to make, but we're here to support you at every step. Choosing to say goodbye to a beloved pet is undoubtedly one of the toughest choices you can make.

We'll give you and your pet all the privacy and time you need. Our goal is to make your pet's last moments with you as peaceful and comfortable as they can be.
We can discuss after care options before or after the procedure--whatever works best for you. However you choose to memorialize your pet after they've passed, you can be assured that we will honor your request.
Please call (860) 537-3435 to talk to us if you are uncertain about your pet's future and need help deciding the best course of action. You do not have to make end-of-life care decisions about your pet alone.
