The decision to euthanize your pet is likely to be the most difficult decision you will ever have to make as a pet owner. If the quality of your pet’s life has diminished so that you are experiencing more bad days than good, then it may be time to consider easing your pet’s suffering.
Quality of Life examinations will be performed on all new patients prior to euthanizing. We can examine your pet in its own environment to get an accurate understanding of its medical problems and quality of life to guide you through this critical time. We will not euthanize a patient with a manageable or treatable disease (ie arthritis, blindness, deafness, untreated diarrhea, untreated renal disease, etc.).
Crossroads Mobile Veterinary Clinic will sedate your pet in its favorite location, allowing you time to say goodbye. After the sedative has taken effect, we will administer the final injection while you comfort your pet. We can also prepare final arrangements for your pet, if requested.
Please Note: Crossroads Mobile Veterinary Clinic performs euthanasia only on pets who have an unmanageable disease or those with little quality of life remaining. We reserve the right to refuse euthanasia if we feel it is being chosen as a convenience option (i.e. I want a new pet; I’m having a baby; It was my parent’s pet and I don’t want it; It’s just old; etc.). If we determine that it is not time to euthanize your pet, a house call fee and quality of life examination charge will be assessed.
