The word Euthanasia means “good death” which in reality translates into a painless and peaceful death.
It is our goal as veterinarians that we deliver on this definition by ensuring a dignified, gentle and peaceful passing for your pet when that time comes.
We can also provide this same service at your home in the comfort of your pet’s own familiar surroundings.
We understand that the decision to let your pet go is one of the most difficult one you will make however it is also the ultimate final act of caring when maintaining quality of life is no longer possible.
At Home Euthanasia Appointments
Our Home Euthanasia appointments are available to all local pets weekdays Monday – Friday between the hours of 10.00am and 6.00pm.
Due to scheduling requirements we prefer appointments are requested at least 24 hours in advance of your preferred date and time.
Once you have made the decision to schedule your home visit appointment we will provide you with a fee for the service. We will also ask for your assistance in completing the consent form and letting us know your aftercare preferences.
On the day
Both a Veterinarian and Assistant will arrive at your home around the scheduled appointment time. From that time they will be guided by you as to how & when you wish to proceed. Your pet can relax by your side, stay on your lap, couch or bed, be in your backyard or other favourite place.
You can take as much time as you need to say your final goodbye’s before and after your pet has passed.
We can assist in aftercare arrangements which include transporting your pet back to the clinic for communal burial or individual cremation.
We partner with Mountain High Crematorium to provide individual cremation services for our departed pets.
They provide a collection and delivery service from and to our practice. Your pets ashes will be available for collection in around 2 – 3 weeks after the event.
