Cat Euthanasia

Cat Euthanasia

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.
