Dog Euthanasia

Dog euthanasia is a service provided by veterinarians, where we can intervene in a humane way to end the life of an animal who is terminally ill, in suffering, or who has a poor quality of life. This is one situation where a relationship with a veterinarian is very helpful, as they can aid you in determining when and if your pet should be euthanized and guide you through the process.

What drug is used?

The name of the drug used to euthanize an animal is pentobarbital sodium. This is a very concentrated drug designed to quickly stop the heart and other body functions.

What’s the cost of euthanasia?

The cost of this procedure depends on the size of your animal and how you would like the remains to be cared for. We use a company that performs cremations on animals and you can decide if you wish to have your animal’s ashes returned to you or not. We recommend booking an appointment with your regular veterinarian to determine if euthanasia is warranted and the associated costs.

Does the clinic also provide bereavement counselling?

We do not provide a bereavement counsellor in-house, but we can direct you to the appropriate services in your area.
