Giving your pet the best quality of life until the very end is as important to us as it is to you. We know that the happiest memories are built from times when you and your pet are free to live your lives together without fears that their old age or illness might be causing them pain.

How to Make a Quality of Life Assessment for Your Pet

The first step in the process is to inform yourself using our Quality of Life Checklist. The idea is to make sure that your animal family members are safe, free from pain.

Our Quality of Life Checklist will help you understand what to expect and look for as your pet's life begins to draw to a close.

Deciding whether the time has come to say goodbye to a sick or chronically ill pet is the hardest decision of all. Use this checklist to examine all the factors that could be relevant to weigh up their condition. Remember, no single symptom by itself is enough to base an assessment of their quality of life.

You know your pet best, you are the best judge of what their life is like at any given time

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 :

  • Testimonial
    When Ricky was diagnosed with cancer, I really didn't know how long we'd have left. I could tell just by looking at him sometimes that he was in pain. I found this checklist and it really provided very helpful information. I took Ricky to a vet and thanks to the checklist I already knew what to ask the vet. Thankfully he told me that Ricky can live a little longer with pain medications before his life conditions deteriorate. When the time comes I know I will call Cloud 9 Vets to put Ricky to sleep.

In order to safeguard you and our vets and to comply with Government regulations there are some requirements you should be aware of and agree to before we confirm your home visit:
1. If the gentle euthanasia is indoors, only one person can be present during the vet’s visit, other family or friends should say their goodbyes before the vet arrives at your home
2. There should, at all times, be a two meter distance between the family member and the vet.
3. Our process involves sedation, you will be able share closeness with your pet after the vet has given the sedative
4. If you are able to be in your own garden, this greatly reduces the risk of contagion and it may be possible to be more than one person to be with the vet, our vet will advise you.
5. We are doing all we can to ensure there is closeness, care and compassion during the gentle euthanasia home visit. A peaceful goodbye is so important at such a sensitive and emotional time
