End of Life & Pet Euthanasia
We understand the decision to euthanise a beloved pet is one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make. It’s important you have all the information and professional support you need before making that decision. We are here to guide you through the pet euthanasia process.
What You Need to Know About Pet Euthanasia
If you have a pet whose pain or condition can not be minimised or managed effectively, your vet may suggest pet euthanasia. Your vet can provide guidance on whether euthanasia is appropriate, based on your pet’s quality of life.
You can be assured that if your vet does recommend euthanasia, it is the most compassionate option for your pet.
This does not make the decision necessarily any easier but it can help to know that you are making the right choice for your beloved pet. Even so, it’s not unusual for pet owners to experience a range of emotions including grief, guilt and relief. There are no right or wrong ways to feel when it comes to pet euthanasia.
Your decision to euthanise your pet may be a necessary one but it is also highly personal, brave and an act of compassion.
We understand this at Port Kennedy Vets and will do everything we can to assist you in your decision-making, as well as support you and your pet leading up to and during the process.
