Hospice and Euthanasia: Why Are They Essential?

Euthanasia is essential when it is the only way to stop to your pet’s despairs and miseries. Your pet is an important part of your family and may have been with you all the way through good and bad times. Making a choice to end his or her life is painful and upsetting, but can be your last endowment of love if your pet’s value of life has already declined to a point where little or nothing is left but hurting and suffering.

When mercy killing or euthanasia is performed for your suffering pet in your home, you are in charge of every facet of your pet’s final moments, allowing you to ensure that you and your pet can be in the most comfortable environment as likely as possible. We, at Dunloggin Veterinary Hospital, we think of euthanasia as an understanding, and not a mere medical course of action. We make every effort to fulfill it as peaceful and positive experience as possible.

Deciding when your pet may need hospice care or euthanasia is a very personal and private decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make this difficult choice on your own.
