Knowing When It’s Time

Possibly the most difficult part of pet ownership is deciding whether dog or cat euthanasia is necessary for your pet. We understand this is not an easy decision to make and our team will never rush any part of this process. Your veterinarian can help determine what is best for your pet by performing an examination to assess their quality of life. When performing their evaluation, here is what our veterinarians consider:

  • Has your pet stopped eating or drinking?
  • Does your pet seem to be in pain?
  • Can your pet move or walk without assistance?
  • Is your pet experiencing chronic diarrhea or vomiting?
  • Have they had unusual accidents in the house?
  • Is your pet acting lethargic rather than interacting with you or your family?

What to Expect with a Cat or Dog Euthanasia Appointment

The Little Silver Animal Hospital team wants to help ensure their passing is as peaceful as possible. If it is determined euthanasia is the next best step for your pet, someone from our team will go over paperwork and review the procedure with you. Rest assured, we will treat your pet with the utmost care and respect during this procedure, which includes ensuring they are comfortable. Your pet will be sedated prior to receiving the injection to minimize stress. Then, we’ll place an IV catheter and when you are ready, we can administer the euthanasia injection. We encourage you to stay with your pet for as long as you’d like.
