Cat euthanasia at home is the peaceful way to send off your feline friend. There is no need to force them into a cat carrier or car, they will be able to stay calm and relaxed in a familiar and comfortable environment, with you and the rest of your family there to offer love and support.
We will always discuss which methods will best suit your and your pet's needs and wishes and we can provide you with as much information as you wish at your request.
Some of our clients are concerned about how much cat euthanasia costs - we always strive to provide an option which prioritises the comfort of your pet in their final hours without adding an unnecessary burden to your wallet. The only time when we add anything extra onto your bill will be when you need an Emergency Vet during unsociable hours. This is because we need to keep one of our Caring Vets on-call at all hours. This we do 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
Putting a Cat to Sleep - How It Happens
Putting a cat to sleep can happen in several ways. Many of the people we work for prefer not to know the details, but if you you want to know more please read on:
The main thing to remember is that your cat will not feel any pain. They may notice a little pinprick as the sedative is administered, we do not need to shave any of their fur. The effects of the sedative will be noticed instantly in most cases, but for some unusually robust , dehydrated or ill cats it can take a little longer. The second injection, which contains anaesthetic, will only be given when your cat is already in a deep sleep. This helps them to pass away gently without realising it is happening.
When you choose to put your cat to sleep at home you are avoiding all of the negative aspects of doing it in a veterinary clinic. Your cat will be relaxed, can even be in their own bed if they want to be, and they will not need to have any stressful intravenous injections. In the end, they will simply be going to sleep for the last time.
The cost of putting a cat to sleep will not change depending on the method which you prefer.
Who Will Be Helping You With Your Cat Euthanasia at Home?
Putting a cat down is never be a decision to be taken lightly. It is always important to know that the Caring Vet who arrives to assist you is:
- Fully qualified and trained
- Highly experienced in helping families and their pets
- Able to determine your pet's quality of life, and when it's necessary to act
If you have any questions about the process whatsoever, you can ask them when you call us or when your Caring Vet arrives. We have lost much-loved pets ourselves and will understand that sometimes you simply want it to be over, while other times you need as much information about pet euthanasia as you can possibly get.
One of the questions we are most often asked is "how much does it cost to put a cat down?". Your at-home cat euthanasia is rarely going to cost you anything more than a visit to a veterinary clinic would and is always much easier for you and for your beloved pet.
You need to be absolutely sure that when you book a vet home visit that you're going to be getting care from someone that you can count on. You can see below what some of our clients have said about the support that we have given them :
I want to thank you and everyone at Cloud 9 Vets for organising the Gentle Euthanasia for my cat Shelley and the post mortem and cremation afterwards. It removed a great deal of stress for her & for us, and she passed away quickly & peacefully in her own bed at home. Please thank the vet for driving 2 hours to our home on a Sunday to do this, and also for driving Shelley’s body the same evening to the animal hospital for the post mortem. All of you have been kind, sensitive and professional, and I am grateful for all your help.
Found these guys by chance and they came out on a Sunday evening to put our family dog to sleep. Excellent service, vet wonderfully compassionate, no anxiety, cannulation or pain, gentle drift to sleep, whole family there to see him off as he layed in my parents arms in front of the fire. They made a heart wrenching situation as good as it could be. Can't prise enough or recommend more highly
Thank you very much for the way you treated my daughter Rosa when you came to collect Floppy. It was a big day for her and the whole thing was made much easier by your attitude and understanding. Thanks again.
Talking with someone about Paco's condition without having to take him miles to the vet was really great. I can't speak highly enough of the knowledge of the person who came. I would suggest this to anyone in a similar position.
Abel's unexpected passing was difficult enough, so to do away with the worries of how to care for him afterwards was a real godsend. We called very late at night but they still sent someone - it did cost a little more because we hadn't registered but I would pay more for a service like this.
Learning to say goodbye to Socks and Mittens took a long time but I am grateful to Jeremy for the ongoing visits and care he provided. The advice and tea and chats we shared about how they'd be feeling in themselves made it easier to understand. I really can't thank him enough.
