Saying goodbye to your beloved pet, whether after a short or a long time together, may be the hardest thing you will do in your relationship with them. We have been there ourselves, and know that each individual's pain and grieving process is unique. Your path to healing will be different than someone else's so give yourself permission to feel whatever it is that you do. There is no right or wrong in this situation.
We offer both in-home as well as in-hospital euthanasia. Weather permitting, we can even perform this outside, on a blanket on the grass under the shade of one of our majestic trees. No matter what the location, for the comfort of your pet we encourage you to stay with them while they pass. We promise to make this as easy as possible for both of you.
Aftercare is generally in the form of cremation. We use Gateway (see box above image below) exclusively for this. Should you wish to have your pet's ashes returned to you, they have a large selection or urns and jewellery to choose from.
