Euthanasia and Final Arrangements
The final moments you spend with your pets are a very personal and often spiritual time. The choices you make on whether you have a home euthanasia or done in the clinic is often affected by your personal belief of what occurs next. Dr. Paula understands this and does her best to accommodate your wishes for those last moments with your pet. Each euthanasia package includes the house call, your option of a sedative * prior to the procedure and final arrangements. Final arrangements are a private cremation with ashes returned directly to your residence in a cedar urn, a clay paw print and a a personalized Alder Wood keepsake heart. Ask about adjusted pricing for ashes not returned.
*Sedation for felines includes: an intramuscular sedative combination that is both a muscle relaxant and anti-anxiety. Intramuscular is used to allow for minimal restraint during the sedative administration which allows for complete relaxation and stress free placement of the intravenous catheter. The sedative can take 5 -10 minutes to take full effect while the cat is allowed to return to his or her favorite spot or to cuddle with family.
*Sedation for canines is an intramuscular injection with both a sedative and anti-anxiety effect. This is elective as the drug used for the procedure is also a sedative.
