Unfortunately, our cats are not able to stay with us as long as we would like. When the end comes, we aim to allow your cat to pass in as much comfort and dignity as we can.
When should I consider pet euthanasia?
We generally recommend considering euthanasia if your cat no longer wishes to eat, is suffering from excessive weight loss, is lethargic (not getting up and moving and sleeping a lot), appears to be in pain and/or does not seem to enjoy the things it used too.
What is the process for cat euthanasia?
We begin by giving the patient an injection of sedation to alleviate anxiety and any pain they may be feeling. We then may or may not place a catheter. We then bring your kitty back to you and allow the sedation time to take effect. Once you are ready to say goodbye, we will give the euthanasia agent.
