Humane Euthanasia

The decision to say goodbye to your beloved companion is one of the hardest decisions for a family to make. To help you understand the process, here are some tips:

Is it time? Consider your pet’s quality of life. When a pet’s quality of life has deteriorated to the point when they are:

  • in persistent physical pain or discomfort

  • if they are unable to get up and move adequately to eliminate consistently outside (or in their litterbox)

  • if they have severe restlessness, anxiety, or vocalization

  • if they persistently soil themselves or their bedding and/or develop pressure sores

  • if they are not eating or drinking adequately for hydration and nutrition

  • if they are not cognizant of their surroundings or owners

  • if they have little or no interest in everyday activities

  • if they are having labored breathing (or need oxygen) or frequent seizures, despite medication

  • if they have metastatic cancer

Then it may be more kind to consider euthanasia to help prevent further decline or suffering of a beloved pet.
