Pet euthanasia at home in Halifax - the final act of love

Putting a cat to sleep or putting a dog down can be an act full of love. No one wants their animal companion to suffer. So when there is nothing which can relieve their agony, pet euthanasia at home in Halifax is sometimes the only choice. Why at home?


Comfort. Peace and quiet. The familiar sights, sounds and smells which they have known for their entire lives. There are many reasons why pet euthanasia in the home is preferable to being in a veterinary surgery. First and foremost, you will not be causing your animal companion any extra suffering by forcing them into a container or car for a long trip. There will be no cold steel tables to endure. Or sounds of other poor animals in distress.


They can stay relaxed and as comfortable as they can be given their condition. You and any other members of their family can be there to hold their paw if you wish to. Or you can wait nearby if you find you cannot face it. Your Vet will give your companion a full pet quality of life examination before they proceed. We find, for many of our patients, that they are so distracted by their pain that they do not even notice that someone else is in their house. The examination will tell you that there is nothing more which can be done to alleviate their suffering. This is something which it may be good to be able to remind yourself of later down the line. All of the dog euthanasia and cat euthanasia that we provide is a two-stage process. The first involves a tiny injection of anaesthetic. This puts them to sleep and means they feel nothing as a larger injection of anaesthetic is applied. Particularly for cats, who can be uncooperative patients, and animals of all kinds who are far gone with pain, this sedation allows them to pass on peacefully. If you have any questions about putting a dog to sleep or saying goodbye to a feline friend, please do get in touch with a member of our understanding team.
