Pet Euthanasia

Letting Go Is Never Easy

Sadly, as pet owners we are often faced with the heart-wrenching decision of having a companion put to rest. At Richboro Veterinary Hospital, we want to be there for you during this painful and difficult time to help your pet be laid to rest in a peaceful and compassionate way. Our clinic offers compassionate pet euthanasia in the greater Richboro area for dogs and cats.

What to Expect

For most owners, knowing when to say goodbye is the most difficult part of having a pet put to sleep. When you come to us, we will perform a quality of life exam to help you make a decision that you feel is best for your companion. This information, combined with the advice of an experienced veterinarian, can help owners feel a bit more confident in their decision. When euthanasia is the kindest option, we place an IV catheter and administer a sedative to ensure that your pet is calm and free from anxiety and pain during the process. Once the drug has taken effect and you have had time to say goodbye, we will administer medications that stop the heart. Your pet feels no pain during this process, and you will be able to remain by their side the entire time. Once they have passed, you can either take your pet home with you, or we can arrange aftercare.
