VCA Spring Animal Hospital

Euthanasia Services

Our staff is here to help you with euthanasia and end of life decisions.  The decision to euthanize a beloved pet is among the most difficult choices a pet owner ever has to make. Consultation with a veterinarian will help owners determine whether euthanasia is appropriate and when that might occur.

In a quiet and comfortable environment, euthanasia is performed by a veterinarian with the injection of an anesthetic overdose into a vein through a IV catheter. Because an anesthetic is used, no discomfort is perceived by the patient. The patient passes quickly. The veterinarian will insure that the heart, pulses and breathing have stopped. Pet owners are free to be present or leave depending on their preference.

Prior to euthanasia, pet owners should decide how the pet's body will be cared for aftewards. This reduces the emotional stress at the time of the procedure. Our hospitals provide a range of respectful options, from burial to private cremation.
