Are There Preparations or Set-Up Requirements Needed Before an In-Home Euthanasia?

When you have welcomed a pet into your heart and home it is hard to let them go. Most of the time, we hope that our pets will pass away peacefully when their time comes, but that does not always happen. When there is no other option but euthanization, there are a few things you need to do before the day comes.

We understand that pet euthanization is probably the hardest decision you have ever made in your life, but sometimes, there are no alternatives. At Dr 4 Pets, we offer in-home pet euthanasia services for residents in Canoga Park, Thousand Oaks, Porter Ranch, and the surrounding areas. Our veterinarian, Dr. Lorraine Watson, is committed to ensuring your beloved pet receives a proper and smooth transition at your home, where he or she feels most comfortable.

What You Need to Do Before Pet Euthanasia

Talk to Our Veterinarian

Talk to our veterinarian to set up an appointment. You can choose the date and time you want the process to take place. When you need it to happen soon, you can schedule emergency services.

Decide Where to Lay Your Pet to Rest

Deciding on where to put your pet to rest before the euthanization process is very crucial. You may choose to bury or cremate your pet.

Say Goodbye to The Pet

If it is possible, let everyone in your home bid goodbye to your pet. If the pet is still active, you can even take a short walk with your pet. If there are small children in your home, try to make them understand what will happen to your pet. Let them know your pet will not feel any pain only a peaceful release.
