“How will I know when it’s time?”
“I just want him to pass in his sleep”
“I don’t want her to be in any more pain”
“What if there is something else I can do?”
These are just some of the most common statements and questions that arise when we begin discussing humane euthanasia for our pets. It is a complicated, emotional, and personal decision to make. I take this responsibility very seriously, and I want all of the families that I work with to know how important it is to me. The health and well-being of your pet is my utmost priority, but I also want you and any other family members present to be comfortable with the decision(s) being made. Sometimes, a Quality of Life consultation can be done ahead of time to assure all questions are answered.
**If you/any family members are experiencing any COVID symptoms or are immunocompromised, please inform me when booking the appointment.**
At the Appointment: Your pet will receive a sedative (either orally or by injection) that will help to ease them into a deep sleep within 5-20 minutes. While most pets will not react, there are some who will experience a very brief discomfort (similar to administration of a vaccine). This is a perfect time to give them all their favorite foods or treats…even those that have always been forbidden. I encourage you to make this a “celebration of life” time. Bring out the burgers, cake, chocolate, salmon, or whatever else your pet has always wanted but couldn’t have.
Once you and your pet are ready, I will administer the euthanasia solution. This allows your pet to pass peacefully. There is no pain, but there is occasionally some muscle twitching or deep breaths. I will talk you through all of this so you know what to expect. Most animals do not close their eyes.
You may stay for as little or as much of the procedure as you wish.
BURIAL: After your pet has passed, you can choose to bury your pet at home. If you do this, please be sure that the hole is at least 3-5 feet deep (on top of the pet) to keep wildlife and other predators away. I will also provide you with a EuthaBag for burial that helps protect our environment and water sources from contamination due to the medications present in your pet's system. Please visit euthabag.com/ecology for more information.
--Communal/group cremation: this means that your pet will be cremated with other pets and the ashes will not be returned to you.
--Private Cremation: this means that your pet is cremated individually, and the ashes are returned to you in an urn or wooden box.
I will arrange transport for your loved one from your home to the facility. If you choose cremation, we can also arrange transport for your loved one to return home to you.
There are two crematories in the area, Greener Pastures and Final Journey. I have chosen to work with these two companies because of their respectful handling of the entire process as well as their multiple safeguards to make sure the right pet is in the right place at the right time.
I can discuss other memorial items, cost of cremation, and any other aftercare questions you may have via phone call, email, or at the appointment.
