Is it time to say goodbye?
Euthanasia, when the time is right, will most likely be the most difficult decision you will make during your pet's lifetime. We have such an emotional commitment with our beloved pets that making the decision to end their life can be excruciating. Sometimes the time for euthanasia is clear and there is no doubt you need to end their suffering. Sometimes your pet's comfort wanes and waxes and the timing is not so clear. We can help you assess your pet's comfort level that will help guide you through the decision process. Although our doctors can provide information and guidance as medical professionals, you know your pet on levels we do not.
When we bring that young puppy or kitten home for the first time we never think that years down the road we will be faced with this tough decision. But as Dr. Anthony Oddo often reminds our clients at High Desert Veterinary, "Euthanasia is the last kind thing we can do for our loved one."
