Choosing to end the life of your favourite animal companion can be almost impossible. You need to know before you make the decision that nothing more can be done for them. It's the reason why the pet euthanasia we provide in Dumfries and Galloway always begins with a quality of life assessment by a qualified and highly experienced vet. They'll help you to make the choice as to what should be done.
If you need to go ahead with pet euthanasia, it's important to understand that the techniques we use are entirely painless for your companion. They feel only the first tiny pinprick of the needle of anaesthetic which puts them to sleep, after which they feel nothing else as they slip into dreams. You can hold their paw throughout if you would like to, and choose to have any family members present who would like to be there. We're always happy to discuss any part of the process of putting a dog down with you over the phone at any time. And, of course, your in-home vet can talk you through the procedure if or when you want to have the conversation. Many of our clients also have some concerns about the cost of putting a dog to sleep. If you have any queries in that line, we'll be glad to put your mind at ease whenever you feel up to talking about it. Dog euthanasia costs are usually directly tied to the size of the animal involved. We love our pets as much as you love yours. So we know that when it comes to putting a cat to sleep, you'll be going through a whole rollercoaster of emotions. If you need to find out more - we often find this makes things easier to come to terms with - about the procedure, or about practicalities like cat euthanasia costs, get in touch with us whenever you can.
We can transport them away afterwards if you would find it easier, taking them to our nearby pet chapel of rest.
