When is it the right time?
Never an easy question. When a medical condition or old age leads to pain or distress that can no longer be managed, we will find ourselves considering the option of euthanasia. Euthanasia is a very sad and difficult choice to be faced with for our clients. However, when that choice has to be made we will be there to support you through it.
What are my options?
Please contact us to discuss your concerns if you feel your pet may require this service and anyone of our staff will talk you through what will happen next . For example, you may request that euthanasia is carried out in the clinic or at your home. Some people will prefer to be with their pets in the final moments, while others find it too difficult and so on. A consultation with one of our vets will allow us to go through all the options available, including cremation services so that you can choose the best combination for you and your pet. At our Dudley Hospital, we have a dedicated Bereavement Room to give you time and privacy in these intimate moments.
I’m finding it hard to cope. Is there anyone I can speak to?
We know how difficult a pet’s end-of-life journey can be for the rest of the family and think no-one should ever suffer alone. We are always willing to help, listen and advise you on the options and how to cope, but did you know that there are some great services out there that are even better equipped to offer support such as the Blue Cross and Compassion Understood?
