The Final Goodbye

One of the most difficult decisions a pet parent ever has to contemplate is when to let go. It can give you a sense of overwhelming responsibility and be an extremely emotional time. If your pet is suffering, the kindest treatment option can be a peaceful passing. Seek advice from your vet so you can make an informed decision about the right time. There are many ‘Quality of Life’ scales available that discuss signs to look for in your pet.

The final farewell is never an easy thing to prepare for. You might like to create a ‘bucket list’ for your pet if they are slowly declining. Take photos, give lots of cuddles and feed lots of treats.


In-Home Euthanasia

Modern veterinary medicine now allows for palliative care to take place at home in the lead up to euthanasia. Talk to your vet about care options they can provide.

If your vet is unable to do housecalls, consider contacting Dr Kara from HomeVet. She provides Palliative Care and In-Home-Euthanasia services in your home.
