Euthanasia Services

Compassion & Care at the End of Your Pet’s Life

Because we form such a strong bond with our companion animals, the end of a pet’s life can be a devastating experience. Everyone on the Loomis Basin staff knows firsthand the grief and hurt you may be experiencing.

Many pets that suffer with long-term chronic illnesses, such as cancer, benefit from our compassionate hospice care. We emphasize making your animal friend as comfortable as possible. As you know your pet best, our staff will work with you so that the transition is calm and peaceful. To further assist you during this time, our doctors have developed a guide called Assessing Quality of Life and this guide is designed to help with end-of-life decisions.

When the time comes, after considering your pet’s declining quality of life and the state of his or her health, we can offer your pet humane euthanasia. Euthanasia literally means an “easy and painless death.” You may know it as “putting a pet to sleep” or “putting an animal down.” You may be involved as much or as little as you would like every step of the way. You will have as much time as you need to be with your beloved pet so that you may honor the life of your companion and the friendship you built over the years.

We often find that following the passing of a cherished pet, clients look for a special way to honor their pet’s memory. There are many types of memorials for your pet. Visit our Pet Loss area and you may find an appropriate way to honor your pet. Please ask us for suggestions.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.

Same-Day Veterinary Care

We understand that sometimes your pet needs to be seen sooner rather than later. To solve this problem, VCA Loomis Basin offers Same-Day Care appointments to accommodate client requests for “emergency” or “urgent” care during normal business hours or last-minute appointment requests. Same-Day Care is a much-needed service that helps keep the regularly scheduled appointments on track; however, clients may have to wait while other pets are being triaged.
