Providing compassionate care during a difficult time.
Death is an inevitable part of life. Pet parents wish their pets would live forever, but there comes a time when they have to make this difficult decision. Your choice can provide your treasured companion with humane and peaceful end-of-life care support. It can alleviate their pain and suffering. At Dundas Euclid Animal Hospital, we can help you answer tough questions and provide compassionate care to your beloved pet.
Euthanasia is the medical procedure of ending life with medication. This alternative to natural death is painless and quick.
The procedure involves two injections - the first is a sedative which ensures the pet won’t feel any more pain. The second is a dose of a medication that stops their vital organs within minutes allowing the pet to cross the rainbow bridge peacefully.
Euthanasia is only recommended when the veterinarian has exhausted all treatment options to alleviate the pet’s suffering. When the pet’s quality of life declines due to a terminal disease and/or immense chronic pain, it could be time to discuss euthanasia.
Euthanasia is a form of humane death. When your pet is in tremendous pain and suffering due to an illness or terminal disease, euthanasia provides relief from that unendurable pain. In such situations, choosing natural death would mean putting your pet through severe discomfort and a long and painful passing.
