End of Life Pet Care at Cleveland Park Animal Hospital
It is always difficult to have to say goodbye to a beloved pet. When a serious disease or old age takes its toll on our pets, deciding how much end-of-life care is appropriate is an emotional decision to make.
In any of these events, our amazing staff wants to be a helpful resource for you and your pet.
We will provide our most compassionate and objective insights to the following concerns:
- The amount of pain that your pet is experiencing, and what types of pain relief may help
- If care at home is possible and practical
- What you can expect in the days, weeks or months to come
If the decision is reached that euthanasia is the kindest option, our staff will handle the process in a gentle and empathetic way. You may accompany your beloved pet during the entire process, and he or she will be given a sedative to keep relaxed and calm. It’s what your dog or cat deserves.
Your veterinarian will also talk with you about options for burial or cremation, commonly known as after care. Talk with us about your wishes and we will do our best to help you, your pet, and your family through this difficult time.
Putting a family pet down does not have to mean good-bye forever. Our pets live on through our wonderful memories of them. But grief can also linger. That’s why we maintain a Pet Loss Grief Library, where you can find resources to help you cope and understand the difficult process you are going through.
