Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
The Moncton Animal Clinic is here for you and your family when any of your pets are suffering. All pets are sedated to minimize stress, and a caring doctor and staff member will be with you and your pet during this difficult time.
When should I consider euthanasia?
Deciding when to make the very difficult decision to say goodbye to a beloved pet varies and takes into account many important factors. Consider 1. Your pet’s health and prognosis. 2. Your pet’s personality and attitude during this time of illness. 3. The emotional components and time needed by your family to nurse a sick and dying pet.
What happens during euthanasia?
During a euthanasia procedure, pets are firstly given an injectable medication to sedate, calm, and relieve any pain. This sedative makes them very sleepy. A pet will then be euthanized humanely with an injectable drug that works very quickly to ensure that the cat experiences no pain or suffering. Afterwards, a family may say their goodbyes and decide if they wish to bury or cremate their pet.
Can you stay with your cat during euthanasia?
We welcome any family member that wishes to stay with their beloved pet throughout all parts of the euthanasia process.
What is the cost of euthanasia?
Aftercare is offered at varying costs based on the family’s wishes. We work with a wonderful local company called Forget Me Not Aftercare, that are respectful and understanding of what families go through in these difficult times. More elaborate urns and receptacles can be purchased from them either through us or directly from their website.
I am new to Moncton, in the last year and finding another vet was very difficult for me. My cat…
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
We are allowing 1 client per pet into the hospital (up to a maximum of 3 clients in our hospital at one time). Clients are to wait in the waiting room during the exam since there is not enough space for physical distancing with the veterinarian in our small exam rooms. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us so a staff member can meet you at the door and bring you and your pet into the hospital.
We ask that you wear a mask when in our building and encourage you to bring your own.
You may choose to continue with the "closed-door" approach and we can obtain a history over the phone and then collect the pet at the door for the exam. The Veterinarian will then call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
