Dog Euthanasia

The process involves two injections. The first gentle pinprick is the only discomfort your dog may feel. After this, they will gradually drift into a sleep within five to fifteen minutes. Once they are in a deep sleep the second injection will be given. This is either intravenously through a small shaved patch on the front leg or by an intravenous catheter into the back leg. Remember - this all happens after your dog is asleep, so they will not feel a thing.

The cost of putting a dog to sleep will not vary depending on the method used, so you have no worries there either.

  • 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.
