Montgomery Animal Hospital services End of life - 72346309

Coping with the imminent loss of a pet is usually the most difficult experience a pet parent faces. Whether your furry friend is approaching his golden years or has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, it’s important to make a rational decision regarding end-of-life that minimizes the pain or discomfort. As your pet’s health declines, you may elect to care for him or her at home, under the supervision of your veterinarian. Or you may decide the time has come to end the suffering of your beloved with euthanasia.

Whatever course you choose, as emotional and exhausting as it is sure to be, please take some comfort in knowing you’re not alone. Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals can help you through this painful experience. We will work with you to ensure your pet’s comfort and dignity during his or her last days with proper use of pain medications, dietary strategies and human interaction to provide the most peaceful end of life possible. We can help you with any concerns or questions and will make every effort to accommodate your wishes at this very difficult time.

It’s sad but true that there are times when all the capabilities of medical science have been exhausted and euthanasia is the only way to prevent an animal from suffering needlessly. Determining if and when to euthanize is a very personal and private one, and it needs to be considered thoroughly before a final decision is made. Our humane euthanasia services are conducted with respect, compassion and care. We know what it feels like to say good-bye to a beloved pet since many of us have experienced a similar loss. That empathy makes us uniquely qualified to provide the support you need in such circumstances.
