Pet Hospice and Euthanasia in Cooper City
We all wish our pets could live forever, but unfortunately, they can’t. Some become terminally ill before they pass. Others develop medical conditions that negatively affects their quality of life. We know the last thing you want for YOUR companion is for them to suffer in the final stage of their life’s journey. That’s why we offer pet hospice and euthanasia services at our Cooper City clinic. Deciding if and when your pet needs hospice care or euthanasia is a very personal decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make it alone. We want to help. At Sheridan West Animal Clinic, our end-of-life care services are conducted with the utmost respect, compassion, and care.
The Final Life Stage: Pet Hospice Care
Our pet hospice service is intended for pets that are terminally ill and no longer responding well to treatment. The goal of hospice care is to help pets live comfortably until they pass on naturally or until they are euthanized. This veterinarian-supervised service is centered on you and your family, and it can include early hospice care and advanced hospice care (final stage of life). Our compassionate team is here to help you through this time and is happy to address any concerns you have about the next step. How long should my pet receive hospice care? Is euthanasia the answer? Whatever your questions are, we’re here to answer them.
Saying Goodbye: Pet Euthanasia
Saying good-bye to a beloved companion is one of the most difficult aspects of owning a pet. Part of our goal is to make this part of the journey as easy and comforting as possible for everyone involved. Some pet owners choose hospice care instead of euthanasia while others choose it before euthanasia. In all cases, euthanasia is intended to help pets transition over the “Rainbow Bridge” peacefully and painlessly. We’ll be glad to answer any questions you have about our pet euthanasia service with as little or as much detail as you’re comfortable with. We’ll also discuss your desires for aftercare (cremation or burial).
