Dog Euthanasia

Dog Euthanasia

Animal euthanasia is the act of putting an animal to death in a humane way. There could be many reasons for euthanasia including incurable and especially painful conditions. Euthanasia methods are designed to cause dogs minimal pain and distress.

What is pet euthanasia and how do I know when it’s the right time?


To decide to euthanize your dog is often one of the hardest things to do as a pet owner. Considering their overall health and quality of life is often a determining factor.

How is the euthanasia drug administered?


The euthanasia drug is administered via I.V. catheter.

What is the cost of dog euthanasia?


The cost of a dog euthanasia can vary depending on the weight of your animal and your preference for dealing with your beloved’s remains after the procedure. Please call the clinic and we can compassionately walk you through the process including the price.

Does your clinic provide bereavement counselling?


No. However, we can recommend someone in the local area.

This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
