At Oakbank Animal Hospital, we understand that it can be a very difficult decision when it is time to say goodbye to your beloved companion. For our pets, we often look at the quality of life over the quantity of life. Your veterinarian is there to guide you and help you in making this decision. We believe that relieving your pet of suffering when their quality of life is no longer enjoyable is the best thing we can do for them at the end of their lives.
How is the euthanasia drug administered?
After your pet is administered a sedative, the euthanasia solution is administered by intravenous injection. This drug works very quickly and is painless and humane for your pet. Some owners choose to be present during the procedure while others choose not to be present. Either choice is appropriate for you and your beloved pet. We will support and help you through this process and walk you through each stage.
Do you do house calls?
Saying goodbye to your family pet in the privacy of your own home can be a very comforting experience. This is why we offer house call services for our regular patients if you feel that a scheduled at-home euthanasia is the right choice for your family.
