Compassionate Pet Euthanasia & Palliative Care
No matter what we call it—”put to sleep,” “put down,” “help get to heaven,” “crossed the rainbow bridge”—deciding to euthanize a beloved pet is extremely difficult. The process of losing a pet is different for everyone, and we at Fairgrounds Animal Hospital have the highest respect for that. Watching a beloved pet’s health decline is an extremely hard thing to go through—it is losing your best friend. Our compassionate staff members will always do everything in our power to make this time less painful for pets and their families too. During the natural process of aging, or the very unfortunate circumstance where a pet becomes very ill and can’t be cured, we place the highest importance and focus on pain management and patient comfort. We want to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible in their final days so that they can spend as much quality time with their families as possible.
Our staff feels it is a wonderful gift that so many of our patients grow up and grow old with us. We are so grateful for our client’s trust and loyalty, and we truly care for our patients as individuals. We sincerely empathize with the pain of losing a cherished pet and realize that because the bonds between our pets and us are so strong, preparing for a pet to pass away and grieving the loss of a pet is extremely hard. We all know personally how painful the loss of a pet feels, and we’ve provided links to a few resources here for pet owners in hopes that any advice or information we can offer will help ease some of their pain. Even a small gesture like lighting a candle is a nice way to remember a beloved pet. Without question, our compassionate staff will be there for our clients through every stage of their pet’s lives.
