"It takes a long time to grow an old friend."--John Leonard
We always want to offer our pets the best medical care available. Many owners hearts are not ready to accept what their brains know must be done. But a time comes when a healthy quality of life is no longer possible. At this point, euthanasia should be considered to end pain, suffering and further debilitation. "Providing a good death for a patient is not quitting---its an essential treatment option!"--Jennifer Brandt
Euthanasia at home is a frequent request of veterinarians. It's never easy to say good-bye to a long-time companion. The procedure is done with your pet's dignity and comfort in mind.
We will tranquilize your pet prior to the euthanasia. This aids in reducing the pet's and the owner's anxiety. Additionally, it makes the transition more peaceful for everyone involved. Then once the sedation has taken effect, a barbiturate is administered in the veins to stop the heart. Once deceased owners can then bury their pets (if allowed in their area) or cremated. There is a crematory service located in our area. It's called Central Carolina Pet Crematory Service at 336-723-6500.
The following comments were made from clients who have been through this procedure and what their perceptions of their experience were:
