Pet Euthanasia in Denver: Cats looking through window at each other

Pet Euthanasia in Denver

They keep us company when we’re lonely. They warm our laps and hearts. They are our loyal companions and best friends, but at some point, we have to say goodbye to them. At Northfield Veterinary Hospital in Denver, we’re pet owners, too, and we know how difficult it is to make a decision about the final stages of a pet’s life journey. With our end-of-life pet care and euthanasia services, our goal is to make this process easier, both for pets and the people who love them.

End-of-Life Pet Care

If you suspect that your pet’s health is failing, our doctors can perform a wellness exam to assess his or her symptoms and discuss your options for end-of-life care, including palliative care. Palliative care involves providing medical care, often in the form of pain relief, for pets with serious or terminal illnesses, such as cancer. We can also provide a consultation so pet owners can know what to expect moving forward and when to determine if it’s time to resort to euthanasia. Of course, we want every pet to be as comfortable as possible during their final days, and we will do everything in our power to make that happen.

Pet Euthanasia at Northfield Veterinary Hospital

When a decision is made to have a pet euthanized, we schedule an appointment for the procedure, which can be performed at Northfield Veterinary Hospital or in the comfort of the owner’s home. We present the options for what will be done after the euthanasia is complete and can make local recommendations for pet burial and pet cremation. We can also provide our recommendations for grief support resources. Our veterinarian team allows the family as much time as they need to be alone with their pet and say their final goodbyes before beginning the euthanasia process. Some family members choose to remain with their pet until the end while others prefer to leave before euthanasia is administered.

Please feel free to ask us if you have any questions about our end-of-life or euthanasia services. We’ll be happy to assess your pet’s symptoms to determine the best course of action to help him or her make the transition as peacefully as possible.
