Palliative Care and Quality of Life assessment for your pet
It can be very difficult to know if the time has come to make the final decision or if there are further treatment options available for your beloved pet. When your pet is very unwell their mobility or size may make it impossible to get your pet to the vet practice. A house call from our vet can afford you the opportunity to have your pet’s quality of life assessed at home. The benefit of this being carried out at home is that the vet can see the environment your pet lives in and suggest any changes that may benefit them. Our experienced vets will be able to assess your pet’s well-being and address any concerns that may be worrying you. Seeing how your pet is managing at home allows us to advise and help you with the decision of when is the correct time to look at putting a pet to sleep. Our vet can advise on further treatment options or medication as appropriate, or if your pets health and quality of life has declined, we can explain this and arrange a time to proceed to euthanasia when you are ready.
Dog or Cat Euthanasia at home service in your area
Vets 2 Your Pets is a dedicated home visit service for end of life care. We believe that when the time comes to put your pet to sleep, that this is best performed at home where they are comfortable and happy. By visiting your home we can ensure that your dog or cat is not disturbed, stressed or upset in their last moments. We understand this is a difficult time and you, too will be upset with many questions. Being at home allows you space and time to process these emotions. A home visit euthanasia allows you to be by your pet’s side or holding them when they pass away. Carrying out end of life care at home allows us to take our time in a calm and quiet setting; giving you the time to say goodbye in your own way.
Putting a dog or cat to sleep – what is the procedure?
Our motto is “Stress Free Vet Care” and we believe in a peaceful put to sleep so our vets will use sedation during the visit to alleviate all stress in your pets passing. A euthanasia at home affords us the opportunity to take as much time as needed. We work slowly and patiently with your friend. Letting them get reassurance from you and be comfortable first. We also have the time to go over any questions or concerns you may have. Your pet will feel no anxiety after the sedation injection and they may even start to feel tired and start to fall asleep, it can take 10-15 minutes to take full effect. Once very sleepy and sedated we then place a catheter to administer a final dose of a strong anaesthetic that will allow your dog or cat to pass away. The benefit of being at home is that they can be wherever they feel the most content whilst this happens, even if that’s on your lap, on the sofa or in their own bed.
It’s okay to cry, it’s okay to be upset, it’s okay to not want to be in the room when it happens. We understand that saying goodbye hurts.
