Once you have made the decision to let your companion pass, we promise to help make the process as smooth as possible. We have also lost pets and we know how it feels to go through such a loss. We can help them pass in their favorite spot with their entire family surrounding them or in whatever conditions you prefer. We have even done this on family's decks or out in the yard in the sunshine; every family and pet is different, and it's a world away from what you would experience in a busy veterinary clinic. Once the spot has been chosen, your pet will be given an injection of sedation ("happy drugs") to relax them, after which an IV catheter will be placed. You are welcome to hold your pet if you wish. The last medication is an anesthetic that will be administered into the vein, which will cause them to peacefully slip away. We will provide the option of a complimentary memorial keepsake if you wish.
For aftercare, we highly recommend cremation. We work with Paws, Whiskers and Wags Pet Crematory (https://pawswhiskersandwags.com), who is committed to excellence. If you choose cremation, you'll have the option to have your pet's ashes returned (private cremation) or not (communal cremation). They will meet us at your home for pick up. Home burial is not recommended for pets who have been euthanized due to the risk of soil contamination with chemicals, and/or detection by other animals, who could potentially unearth the remains which can be traumatic to the family, and can also become ill on ingestion of remains. If you do opt for burial, please use two heavy-duty sealed bags and ensure at least 3 feet of soil cover.
