Euthanasia Services for Pets

With compassion, pet euthanasia offers a tender farewell, bringing relief from pain and discomfort.

We know how painful it is to lose a pet. Knowing it’s time to say goodbye can be the most challenging decision you have to make as a pet owner. We strive to take as much of the stress out of this process as possible. From deciding it’s time to handing over the memorial products, we are here for you. We are proud to partner with Until We Meet Again. This premiere pet memorial company will handle your pet like their own. They offer a wide range of services and memorial products to help keep their memory alive in your heart. They also provide grief support services. If you have any questions, please phone our Client Care Team at 250-727-2125. They can help guide you through this emotional process.

How do I know when it’s time?

If you are struggling to assess their quality of life, the Ohio State University has put together a detailed and informative booklet, available here. After going over the information and taking the included survey, we can perform a Quality of Life Exam if you still have doubts. These can help take some of the burdens off you to make the decision.

Once you decide it’s time, our compassionate staff will take care of everything we can, leaving you free to focus on what matters – your love for your pet.

How does euthanasia work?

A veterinarian normally performs the surgery in a quiet, secluded room. Before the last euthanasia injection is given, your pet will first be given a sedative or anaesthetic to ensure that they are relaxed and pain-free. The final injection will cause their heart to stop beating, leading to a quick and painless death.

Can I stay with my pet during the process?

Yes, without a doubt. The decision is ultimately yours, as the procedure will be carried out in a private room. You can take as much time as you need to say your final good-byes if you decide to stay.
