Understanding When It's Time to Say Goodbye
It can be difficult for pet owners to determine when it’s time to say goodbye to their beloved pets, especially if your pet has good days and bad days. If you are unsure as to whether it’s time to say goodbye, Animal Hospital of Bentonville can evaluate your pet’s health and answer your questions in order to help you make a decision.
Caring and Compassionate Pet Euthanasia
Euthanasia is something most people would rather not think about, unfortunately, pets become old and ill, and when they appear to be suffering, sometimes pet euthanasia is the most caring and compassionate thing a pet owner can do for their pet.
Once the decision is made you will have the option of choosing how involved you wish to be in your pet’s final moments. If you wish to stay with your beloved dog or cat throughout their final moments, our team will escort you to a private room where you can say your goodbyes and hold your pet while he or she passes.
During the procedure, your veterinarian will give your pet a sedative to relax them then inject the medications that help your pet pass peacefully. Once your pet has passed, you will have the option to take your pet back home for burial, or we can help you send your pet to a place where he or she can be cremated and you can retrieve their ashes at a later date.
