Cat Euthanasia

At Companion Animal Hospital, we understand that deciding to say goodbye is never easy. We will walk you through these final steps with dignity, compassion and care.

When should I consider pet euthanasia?

When the bad days outnumber the good, it’s time to have a quality of life discussion with your vet. They can help you make the right choice.

What is the process for cat euthanasia?

You will be greeted and immediately guided into a comfortable, dimly lit room. Your beloved pet will be taken into the treatment area where they will be given a slight sedative and have an IV catheter placed. It allows us to eliminate some stress and gain vein access. We will bring your companion back into your room where you may take as much or as little time as you would like. When you are ready for the procedure to proceed, you may click the remote provided to signal treatment staff and your veterinarian to come to your aid. These last moments are incredibly personal. It is our mission to ensure your friend has a peaceful send-off. The vet will give an IV overdose of anesthetic, check for heart and lung sounds, and let you know when your companion has passed.

Do you do house calls?

We may be able to accommodate an at-home visit depending on our availability. Please give us a call so we can discuss options in great detail.

Can I stay with my cat during euthanasia?

Absolutely.

What is the cost of at home or in-hospital euthanasia?

Prior to your appointment, you are welcome to call. Our non-judgmental and caring staff can speak with you in great detail about costs, care of remains and any other special requests you may have to help at this difficult time.

What does it mean when the candle behind the reception desk is lit?

It means someone is having to say good-bye to a dear friend. During this time, we would appreciate your respect and consideration.
