Making the decision to say goodbye to your beloved cat can be an extremely difficult one. Euthanasia is one of the last things we can do to show love to our beloved pet who is at the end of their life or who are suffering from pain or illness.
When should I consider pet euthanasia?
Euthanasia is a humane way of ending a pet’s life who is in pain or who is suffering. It is often helpful to look at the current quality of life your pet has. Do they still love their favourite food? Do they still enjoy playing with their favourite toy?
What is the process for cat euthanasia?
Please speak to your veterinarian and they can explain the euthanasia process to you and answer any questions you may have.
Can you stay with your cat during euthanasia?
Yes – we do encourage clients to stay with their pet if they are comfortable doing so.
What is the cost of euthanasia?
The costs can vary depending on a number of factors. Please give us a call at the clinic and we can compassionately discuss this information with you.
Do you offer pet bereavement support service?
No – but we can recommend someone locally.
Thank you for your care and concern for all our pets over the last 9 years! We have had…
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 8, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".

If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
