What Happens During Euthanasia?

Euthanasia is a very difficult time for our clients. We try to make the euthanasia as comfortable as possible for both the client and the pet.

A sedative is given to relax and make them more comfortable. It may only take a few minutes to have an effect. Our technician will then shave a small area of the leg and insert a small intravenous catheter. Once the client is ready, and the pet is very relaxed, we administer a dose of a barbiturate which slows and stops the breathing and the heart. There is no pain.

You may stay with your pet for as long as you wish to say your goodbye’s. We take care of the remains as requested by the owner.

If you have any questions regarding the process, contact our hospital for further details.
