Gentle Pet Euthanasia At Home In The UK | Cloud 9 Vets

Peaceful Pet Euthanasia at Home

Gentle pet euthanasia at home is the perfect way to softly say goodbye to your closest animal friends.

Even when you know that your pet's quality of life is very poor it can still be incredibly difficult to send them on. We know this all too well - we have loved and lost our own pets, so we understand how even the thought of making this decision can be a cause of grief, anxiety and even guilt.

But we also know, from many years of experience, that your treasured companion will pass much more peacefully, in their home surrounded by their family.

The Person Who Will Be Helping You and Your Pet

As animal lovers ourselves, the Vet we send to you will understand exactly what you are going through. They will also have:

private cremation

Professional training and qualifications

family service

Years of experience helping families and their pets

pet cremation

Everything required to come out and visit you whenever you need them to

time to intervene

The ability and compassion to help you decide when it is time to intervene

It will be their job to support you throughout the process, to answer any questions that you may have and to guide you and your pet through the painful decision-making process to make it as gentle as possible.

We know it does not always happen when you expect it to

Life threatening or critical situations do not always occur during convenient hours, on the contrary, that is why we provide gentle pet euthanasia as and when you need it - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All you need to do is call and talk to us about your situation. We can almost always dispatch a properly prepared vet to you very quickly in cases of emergency.

As I am sure you can imagine, we do apply out-of-hours fees if you need us during late evening and during the night. Hopefully you understand that this is because we need to keep qualified Caring Vets on call at all times, ready to come and assist you or your pet at home.

You do not need to be registered with us in order to call on us for our dedicated at home services.

How Does Animal Euthanasia Work?

Many people prefer to simply know that their beloved friend will feel no pain. If you want to know more, however, you can find links to the information below and you can always talk to our Care Coordinators and Caring home visit vets.

In all cases, the first stage of any animal euthanasia treatment will involve the administering of a sedative. After this tiny pinprick, your pet will be calm and feel nothing else. It really is a gentle and pain-free ending, you can hold their paw throughout if you would like to, which is often thought to be a respectful way to say goodbye.

You can decide whether or not you would like to be present for the procedure, exactly where you would like it to take place and you are encouraged but certainly not forced, to ask specific or general questions you may have about what actually happens..

After Your Pet Has Passed Away

When our Vet has checked vital signs such as heart activity and reflexes and ensured that your pet has passed away - we will help you make arrangements for your deceased pet to be either taken by us to our affiliated, highly accredited pet crematorium, or leave them with you to perhaps find a favourite spot in the garden.


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 was referred to Cloud 9 Vets by another mobile vet that wasn't available. They made the euthanasia procedure go as smooth as possible. The vet was very patient, calm and understanding. She walked us through the whole process and gave us plenty of time to comprehend and answered all our questions. Doing the procedure at home is really the way to go.

  • Our Charlie was diagnosed with terminal cancer and the Vet told us that he had less than a year to live. He was not eating at all and he became very thin. His ribs were showing. We tried everything, but his quality of life was quickly becoming very poor. We began considering euthanasia as an option. Our vet did not offer that service, so we searched online and found Cloud 9 vets. We had so many questions and we spoke on the phone for nearly 3 hours. They answered everything we asked and really helped us make this difficult decision. The procedure took place 5 days later. Charlie looked so peaceful when he fell asleep for the last time. He was surrounded by his favorite toys. I am glad we chose animal euthanasia at home and thankful to Cloud 9 vets for being there for us.
