Cat Euthanasia

The hardest part of owning a cat is saying goodbye. We offer humane euthanasia services and work with a company that offers cremation services. Our team is always willing to help guide you through this difficult time.

When should I consider pet euthanasia?


Euthanasia is essentially an overdose of a very strong drug which causes your pet to fall asleep and the heart to stop. It is tough to know when the right time is. Our team encourages you to assess your cat’s quality of life. This means monitoring things like: is the pet still eating and drinking? Are they able to go to the bathroom regularly? Are they in excessive pain? Do they want to be involved in your activities? If you have any questions, please feel free to call us to discuss all your options.

What is the process for cat euthanasia?


If you have any specific questions, please feel free to give us a call at the clinic. Our team is supportive and understanding, and we will help answer all your questions.

Do you do house calls?


Unfortunately, we do not offer any at home services.

Can I stay with my cat during euthanasia?


You are welcome to stay with your cat during the procedure. If you do not feel comfortable staying for the procedure, you may leave your pet with one of our caring and companionate members of the team after you have said your goodbyes.

Do you offer pet bereavement support service?


We do not offer bereavement support services at this time.
