Pet End-of-Life Care

Compassionate, Peaceful Farewells

Saying goodbye to your beloved pet is often the most difficult part of being a pet parent. At Sweet Home Veterinary Hospital, we provide compassionate quality-of-life examinations and pet euthanasia for when the time has come for your pet to cross the rainbow bridge.

Understanding Your Companion: Pet Quality-of-Life Exams

Knowing the right time to say goodbye to your pet can be hard. At Sweet Home Veterinary Hospital, our veterinarians are here to listen to your concerns and answer questions without judgment during pet quality-of-life examinations. We will provide a thorough physical examination and run any diagnostics that may help you make an informed decision. We want you to be prepared for your pet’s quality-of-life exams, so these are some topics that we may discuss with you at your appointment:

  • Is your pet in pain that cannot be medically managed?

  • Is your pet able to get the nutrition that they need?

  • Can your pet perform general daily functions like moving around, breathing, and using the bathroom?

  • Is your pet sick, and if so, are their symptoms manageable through continued medical care?

  • Does your pet still seem to be enjoying life?

We know these are very tough questions, and our veterinary team is here to support you and your cherished companion no matter what is decided during your pet’s quality-of-life exam.

A Gentle Ending: Pet Euthanasia

If it is time for your pet’s final chapter, Sweet Home Veterinary Hospital offers compassionate pet euthanasia. After speaking with your veterinarian, our caring team will administer a sedative to make your pet comfortable and drowsy. You can take the time that you need to say goodbye, and when you are ready, we will administer an injection so that your pet can pass in peace. Following the pet euthanasia process, we offer cremation services and keepsakes if you would like to memorialize your dear companion. Our team is here for you during this difficult time. Never hesitate to ask any questions that you may have about pet euthanasia or where you can find grief support.
