End of Life Services & Pet Euthanasia in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset
Saying goodbye is the biggest challenge you will ever face as a pet owner, but we can help to make the process easier, and offer support to aid you in making the right decision. At Green Pastures Veterinary Centre, our goal is to ensure a peaceful, pain-free passing for your companion, and minimal stress for you. We provide pet euthanasia to relieve animal suffering when no other treatment options are possible, and to allow pet owners to give their loved ones the gift of a peaceful death.
Our vets and nurses are always here for you and your pet. Contact us to discuss your pet's options or schedule a consultation.
Knowing When It is Time to Say Goodbye
Choosing the right time to say goodbye is difficult. You don't want to wait too long and prolong your pet's suffering, but you also don't want to miss out on the chance to spend more time with them before the end. If you are conflicted, please reach out to our hospital so we can help you. While you know your pet best, our team will be glad to address your uncertainties and help you make the right judgment.
Here are some questions we want you to consider when evaluating your pet's quality of life:
- Can they eat, drink, sleep, move around, and eliminate with reasonable ease and comfort?
- Do they still get up to greet you when you come home?
- Do they still show interest in food?
- When you watch your pet, do they seem to struggle with getting up, lying down, and walking?
- Are they able to breathe without effort?
- Are the 'bad' days outnumbering the good ones?
If your pet is suffering and experiencing more bad days than good, we might recommend euthanasia to prevent them from suffering further. The ultimate decision is up to you, but we want to you understand your pet's situation so you can make the right choice for their needs.
What to Expect at the Euthanasia Appointment
We invite you to consult with our team at length before scheduling your pet's euthanasia appointment. This will give us time to explain the process and put you more at ease.
Some pet owners elect to come into our practice for their pet's euthanasia appointment, but others prefer to have the procedure done at home. Our team will work with you to make the necessary arrangements, so you, your pet, and the rest of your family can say goodbye in the way that affords the most privacy and comfort.
