What to expect during a euthanasia appointment?

Appointments will typically last 30-60 minutes. The doctor will call or text prior to arrival to allow you to prepare for the appointment. This time can be used for extra snuggles, a special treat, prayer, meditation, or anything else that you find appropriate. After the doctor arrives and you and your pet are ready, your pet will be given a sedative and pain-relieving injection. This will allow your pet to fall comfortably asleep, usually within 5-10 minutes. If desired, the doctor will make a keepsake pawprint and lock of fur when they are asleep. When you and your pet are ready, the doctor will administer a final painless injection. This takes only a few moments to take effect. The doctor will listen to your pet’s heart and let you know when they have passed away.

If elected, the doctor will take your pet into her care for transportation to the crematorium. The doctor may require assistance for pets weighing greater than 25 lbs. You may also elect to bury your pet (see guidelines) or take them for aftercare to the crematory of your choice.
