Determining Your Pet’s Quality of Life
Does your pet have more bad days than good ones? Does their condition seem to improve for awhile, but then deteriorate again? We recommend that you observe your pet each day and keep us informed of how they’re doing.
Here are some common signs of a poor quality of life:
- No appetite
- Can barely walk, has trouble standing and lying down
- Lost control of bladder and bowels
- Can’t get up the stairs
- Chronic vomiting/diarrhea
- Often acts as though in pain (whimpering, yelping, moving gingerly)
Will Euthanasia be Painful for My Pet in Oregon, OH?
The purpose of pet euthanasia in Oregon, OH is to end suffering. Our goal is to make each procedure as stress-free and painless as possible for pets (and their people). To ensure the most peaceful passing, we first administer sedation so your pet will fall into a deep and relaxing sleep, then we administer the euthanasia.
We’ll give you and your family however much time you need to be with your companion and say goodbye, then proceed with your permission.
Handling of Remains
If you would like to have your pet’s remains returned to you, we recommend making arrangements before the euthanasia appointment. These appointments can be very emotional and we want to respect your privacy and make the whole process as easy as possible for you.
