Pet euthanasia helps a pet pass on peacefully when nothing else can be done to give them relief from pain or get healed from chronic conditions. It's not the easiest decision to make, but sometimes, it's the only option available.
At Sea Paws Veterinary Services in Kemah, TX, we understand how difficult it is to decide to say goodbye to your pet. Our vet, Dr. Cindy Marcum, will provide compassionate at-home euthanasia services to ensure your pet has a peaceful and comfortable end-of-life experience. We will discuss your thoughts and concerns and make the process as smooth as possible.
What to Expect
Before the procedure, you will have some discussions with your at-home vet care veterinarian, such as whether you would like to be present during the pet care procedure or not. You then decide on a day that will be convenient for both you and the at-home euthanasian.
During the at-home vet care procedure, the vet will administer an intravenous injection to stop the pet's heart from beating. The vet may administer a sedative before the procedure to make it painless. This makes the pet stay relaxed and calm the entire time. After a short period, the pet will become unconscious; its breathing will slow down and then stop. The pet care vet will then let you know after the pet has passed on.
You may decide to handle the burial or cremation of the pet or let the at-home euthanasian do so.
Why You Should Consider at Home Euthanasia
You have the option of taking your exotic pets, elderly pets, or small pets to a vet's office for euthanasia or calling your vet at home. Calling a mobile vet at home has some benefits. These include:
Your Pet Will Be More Comfortable
Your pet will be more comfortable at home than in a vet's office. When the procedure is being performed at home by a mobile vet, the presence of familiar faces and surroundings keeps them calm.
It Will Be Less Stressful for You and Your Family
Saying goodbye to a pet is not easy. Doing it at home can be more comfortable than in a vet's office.
Undivided Attention by the Vet
When a vet comes to your home, their only focus is your pet. They will give their undivided attention from start to finish.
