When is the right time to let my pets go?2021-03-11T00:13:45+00:00

It is one of the most difficult questions even for veterinarians. Generally, if your pet does not function well, does not feel well, or does not behave as normally does, then we can carefully say your pet does not have a good quality of life. Here are few examples: having trouble with breathing, crying a lot, no interest in eating, not drinking enough water, appears depressed, not interested in spending time with you, inability to stand or walk, more bad days than good days, etc. If you notice some of these symptoms with your pet, it is probably time and you will know when because you are with your pet every day. Veterinarians at Ever Animal Care will help you in this decision-making process.

Why is euthanasia recommended over natural passing?2021-03-11T00:13:56+00:00

Euthanasia is the term used to describe the painless or distress-free ending of an animal’s life. Pets with debilitating, incurable diseases can experience enormous suffering that can continue for long periods. Humane euthanasia can help end a pet’s suffering.

Is at-home euthanasia better than euthanasia at a veterinary hospital?2021-03-11T00:14:17+00:00

At-home euthanasia can be the most personal and comfortable experience for pets because home means so much to them. Having their family around in their own home means no stressful trip and no need to be nervous at a vet’s office. At-home euthanasia can also help pets and their family, who simply cannot make a trip to a veterinary clinic.

Can euthanasia be painful?2021-03-11T00:14:27+00:00

No, it is pain-free and peaceful. Our veterinarians strictly follow the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) guidelines for humane euthanasia for companion animals by utilizing appropriate sedative and euthanasia medications.

Is it a good idea to let children stay during euthanasia?2021-03-11T00:14:36+00:00

Although most children take their pets’ passing pretty well, it can be difficult for some children. It is because every child is different and every situation or condition of pets can be different. You know your children better than anyone else. Do what you feel is best for your children by using your best judgment.

Can other pets stay during euthanasia?2021-03-11T00:14:46+00:00

Yes, most pets do well during the euthanasia process. However, we still recommend that you use your best judgment.
