How do you know when it's time to say goodbye?
Humane euthanasia is one of the kindest gifts you can give your pet. It is never easy to say goodbye to a loved one, but choosing to relieve your pet of suffering is an act of mercy and a kind way to end pain and preserve dignity. It can be hard to know when it is time but consider the following:
Talk to us! We would be happy to talk to you about your pet's condition and all treatment options. We can help you generate a plan that suits both your pet and your family.
Consider quality of life - What gives your pet joy? When those things no longer interest your pet it may be time to say goodbye to your pet. It can help to keep a journal of daily activity as pets will often have good days and bad days.
Consider quality of life for your family - As pets age their care can sometimes become overwhelming. Are you able to care for your pet in the way it needs to be cared for?
Trust your judgement - No one knows your pet as well as you do. When it is time to say goodbye many times people feel they "just know".
