Our own experiences with the dog euthanasia that happens in veterinary clinics is that it most often lacks the calm, relaxing and comfortable environment that your dog is used to, after all, it is your pet’s the familiar home That is why we offer this gentler, more peaceful option which allows you to put your dog to sleep at home.

The process involves two injections. The first is a sedation, a gentle injection, often given sub-cutaneously in the back of the neck, you dog may feel a small pinprick but this is only a slight discomfort. After this, they will gradually drift into a sedated sleep which generally takes between five and fifteen minutes. Once they are in a deep sleep there is one final injection to be given. At this point your pet will be in a sedated sleep. The vet will make a final decision regarding how to administer this injection. it may be given intravenously or another method if the vet thinks this is appropriate, your vet will lead you through the process. When you dog is in a state of deep sedated, they will not feel this injection.

The day we had to say goodbye to our Jodie was the hardest day of our lives. Cloud 9 vets made it a little easier. We knew that Jodie was in a lot of pain and suffering badly, but the decision to put her to sleep was very difficult. Cloud 9 vets explained the whole procedure to us and assured us that she won't feel any pain. It was all over in 20 minutes. We had the time to say our goodbye to her.
Bear had a good life, so he deserved a good end. This service isn't something I'd really thought about before, but I rate it highly. He didn't suffer at all when it came to it and went out bravely. Makes it a little better to remember him that way.
