Euthanasia

Closeup of a cat getting checked by doctorWe understand that this is a very difficult decision and an emotional time for owners losing a much loved pet.

Usually an injection is given into a vein in the forelimb, very much the same as when a general anaesthetic is administered. After the injection is given consciousness is lost and within a matter of minutes the animal’s heart will stop.

We endeavor to allow owners time with their animal before and after euthanasia and will try to arrange for this at suitable times.

Arrangements can be made to carry out euthanasia at home.
