End of Life Care
Having and loving a pet means you will likely outlive them. Saying that goodbye is one of the most difficult life experiences. We understand because we love our pets too. And we handle the matter with the empathy and compassion we’d expect if it were our beloved dog or cat we were putting to sleep.
Compassion in the Procedure
Our euthanasia services will never be something we rush you through. We place you and your pet in the room where the procedure will be done and give you a chance to say your goodbyes. We offer sedation prior to euthanasia if desired and our staff will do everything we can to make the procedure go smoothly and peacefully for your pet.
When you are ready for us to deliver the final dosage we do so gently, even speaking softly to your pet so they feel no harm is being done. The medication takes effect immediately, and then we allow you additional time for your remaining goodbyes.
Aftercare for Your Beloved Pets
Aftercare at Clinton Veterinary Hospital includes the opportunity to memorialize your dog or cat by keeping their cremated remains. We provide beautiful and simple urns you can bring home with you, or we can provide a general cremation.
The loss of a pet can be a major challenge in life. For children in a pet-loving family, this may be their introduction to the concept of dying. For seniors who may have already lost a spouse, the loss of their dog or cat can be devastating.
Our staff can assist you in finding the resources that are right for you.
