Pet Euthanasia and End-of-Life Care in Clinton, CT

If you have any queries about the process, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff will be with you every step of the way.

We’ll make the final moments with your pet meaningful.

You will likely outlive your pet if you have one. It’s one of life’s most difficult tasks to say goodbye. We understand because we love our pets, too. We handle euthanasia and end-of-life care with the empathy and compassion we’d show if it were our beloved dog or cat.

We know how difficult this can be for you. We understand that this is one of the most challenging decisions you’ll ever have. Please don’t worry; most pet owners struggle with this decision, and it should not be made on your own. We’ll be there for you as long as you need to discuss choices and go over options together. Euthanasia is a painless and peaceful procedure, but it’s essential to understand what will happen and how your pet’s body will respond. These factors may assist you in deciding to euthanize your pet and make the process less distressing for you.

What to know about the procedure

Our euthanasia services will never be rushed. We bring you and your pet into the room where the procedure is performed, allowing you to say your final goodbyes. If you want sedation, we provide it before euthanasia; our staff will do everything to make the process as painless  as possible for your pet.

When you are ready for us to administer the last dose, we do so carefully, speaking softly to your pet to ensure they feel no discomfort. The medicine works right away, and then we let you have another few moments for your remaining goodbyes.

Aftercare for your pet

Aftercare at Clinton Veterinary Hospital includes the option of keeping your dog or cat’s cremated remains. We provide beautiful and straightforward urns that you can take home, or we can arrange a general cremation.

Resources for your family are available

Losing a pet may be a significant test in one’s life. This may be the first time for children from a family with pets to comprehend the notion of dying. The loss of their dog or cat can be devastating for aging persons who have lost their spouses before. Our staff can help you locate the tools that are appropriate for you.
