Euthanasia is defined as “The act or practice of ending the life of an individual.” We understand that deciding on euthanasia for your pet is one of the most difficult decisions you may have to make. As pet owners, you are not only blessed with the ability to make decisions but also to face such heartbreaking situations. However, pet euthanasia is completely your decision when you feel the time is right. At Gander Veterinary Clinic, we suggest that our clients consider euthanasia when the pet’s bad days outnumber their good days. Once you make a decision, our clinic will accommodate your needs and wishes as best as we can. Call us to schedule a euthanasia service at Gander Veterinary Clinic.
The Euthanasia Procedure
It is your choice if you would like to be present in the room while the euthanasia is performed. Some people prefer staying next to their pet until the very end while others find it too painful to watch. If you decide to stay, our veterinarian will discuss the process with you and prepare you for what will happen, and what can be expected.
Once the procedure is completed, you will have to decide the preferred method of care for his/her remains. You will have the option to bring your pet home for burial, cremation, with or without the ashes being returned to you.
We have access to a crematorium. We offer common aftercare services as well as private cremation services. Your pet's urn is provided with the private cremation service.
