Letting an animal member of your family who is suffering go out on their terms can be a source of great relief to them, and to you. When a quality of life consultation tells you that there is nothing that can be done to ease your pet's agony, pet euthanasia is the almost impossible decision any animal lover needs to face.
At Cloud 9 Vets, we are animal lovers ourselves. Almost every member of our team has been in your situation. So we understand something of what you are going through. Putting a dog down or putting a cat to sleep is sometimes the last favour you can do for your suffering pet. Nothing can prepare you for the situation, but by having it take place in your own home we have found that the entire process can be made a little easier - both for you and for them. There is no need to make an uncomfortable and stressful journey down to visit your local vets. Instead, one of our experienced and very understanding home visit vet comes and visits you at home. In our experience, many pets do not even realise there is anyone else other than their family present. They can simply lie as comfortably as possible, surrounded by you and everything that makes them happy, and then feel a little pinprick as they are sent off to sleep. The final injection takes place while they are unconscious, so they experience absolutely no discomfort or further pain. The last thing they will know is being surrounded by love. We understand that you are likely to have many questions, both about the painless procedure itself and about the cost of putting a dog to sleep cat euthanasia costs and other elements. Please do contact us to ask about where and when we can come to you, dog euthanasia costs, and anything else you need to know at any time.
Your Local Source of Effective Pet Pain Relief in Colchester CO
Many breeds of pet will try to hide any signs that they are in pain. For them, it makes sense. They are still "wired" in a way which tells them that showing signs of weakness might lead predators or competitors to choose them as a target. For you, however, it makes things difficult. You are responsible for their care, so you need to be able to spot indications that an animal member of your family is suffering. If you notice that your pet is eating or sleeping more or less than usual, or that they are far less interested in exercise than they used to be, this can be a sign of a pet in distress. There is no need to make all the effort to get down to your local veterinary clinic though. We can provide a full pet quality of life consultation in your own home. This will include the prescription of any pet pain relief which might be indicated, as well as suggested changes to their diet or exercise plans. You will find that we only prescribe pain relief for dogs or cats when absolutely necessary. Your caring home visit vet will often prefer to use natural remedial steps such as changing what they eat or the amount they go for walks. That said, we can also be counted on to fulfil prescriptions from other pet care professionals whom we trust. Make sure you are getting the correct pain relief for cats and dogs in your care by setting up one of our pet quality of life consultations at your convenience. We can also discuss changes in your pet's habits over the phone to see if booking an appointment might be a good idea for you.

Making Your Choice of Pet Memorials in Colchester CO Easy
The end of a beloved pet's life is a time of sorrow. But it is also a time to reflect on the great joy and happiness that they brought into your life - and a time to remember them. Many people choose one or more pet memorials as a way to do this. For some, this means urns or trays to safely hold the ashes which are their much-loved animal companion's physical remains. For others, a pet marker stone with a paw print, name and quote or other inscription might be more to their taste. Whatever it is that you have in mind, we have a selection of pet memorials where you will find a variety of suitable options. As pet owners ourselves, we understand that choosing a single item which says everything you want to say about your dearly departed can be difficult. If you need to talk to anyone - about your decision or your loss - please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
