If your pet’s quality of life begins to decline significantly due to a terminal illness or major injury, it may be time to discuss gentle euthanasia under our trained veterinarian’s care. Prior to making this decision we will answer all of your questions, discuss quality-of-life issues with you and your family, and offer any guidance so that you may make the right decision for your pet and your family.
We understand that deciding if it’s the right time to euthanize your pet is one of the most emotional and difficult decisions a pet owner will have to make—but it truly is a gift to help prevent pain and suffering. At Wantagh Animal Hospital, we are here to help you during this difficult time, and will be here for you every step of the way. You will have comfort knowing we will always treat your pet as if we were treating our own.
When discussing your pet’s end-of-life needs with us, we can also review at-home pet euthanasia. At-home euthanasia is often less stressful for both you and your pet, and it may be best to say goodbye to your cherished pet in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
We will assist you during this difficult time by answering your questions and providing guidance to help you reach the best decision for both you and your pet. We understand that your pet is a special part of your family, and we take special care to respect you and your family’s wishes for your beloved companion.
