Pet euthanasia at home in Southend-on-Sea - the gentlest way to say farewell

In every way that matters, you have already done the hard part. For we animal lovers, discovering that the most loving thing you can do for an ailing animal member of your family is to let them say goodbye with dignity can be an almost impossible, heartrending realisation. Choosing to have pet euthanasia at home is the way to make what comes after that decision just that tiny bit easier. For both you and your animal companion who is suffering.


Remember that the process includes no pain at all. All they will know is a tiny pinprick which sends them into a state of unconsciousness. Only after they are asleep will the main injection be administered. In this way, dog euthanasia and cat euthanasia is made entirely painless. When it comes to having a stranger in the house, given the extremity of their condition, our friendly and supportive Mobile Vets tell us that most animals do not even notice they are there.

Having pet euthanasia in home also means that you do away with the stress and discomfort that travel can bring. Your animal companion can rest easy and you can make them comfortable in their favourite blanket on the living room floor, or their favoured spot on the sofa if it is very well protected. Though it is by no means their fault, the last act of your feline friend or canine companion may be to have a little accident on whatever they are placed upon. But that unavoidable part of putting a dog down or putting a cat to sleep aside, having everything take place in the environment in which your pet feels happiest and most at home is always going to be best. Because on top of everything else, you also retain your privacy.

As animal lovers ourselves, we understand that little can ease your burden at a time like this. It is important to remember though that choosing to say goodbye to your feline friend or putting a dog to sleep can be the last act of kindness you can do for them.
