Pet euthanasia is one of the most difficult decisions pet owners can make. At Ferreira Animal Hospital in Miami, we know how difficult this decision is to make. It is one pet owners do not make lightly.
If you have a terminally ill pet at home, you may want to spend as much time with your pet as possible. Unfortunately, that isn’t always what is best for your pet’s needs. If your pet’s quality of life is suffering or your pet is in an incredible amount of pain due to his condition or age, it may be a kinder choice to consider hospice care where your pet can be kept as comfortable as possible.
Pet Hospice Services for End-of-Life Care for Your Pet
Placing your pet in hospice for his end-of-life care for pet needs means your pet is medically supervised by our loving, caring, and qualified veterinary staff. We have the equipment on hand to help manage pain, administer medication, and maintain as much quality of life as your pet’s condition allows.
Of course, the question of when to put down a dog or cat you’ve loved for many years is never an easy one to ask yourself, much less to answer. Selfishly, we’d all like our pets to outlive us. That isn’t always possible, which is why it is so important to be honest when asking yourself when to put down a dog or cat you care about so much.
If you’re struggling to answer this question, we certainly understand. Our compassionate and caring staff can help explain the realities of your pet’s condition, the likelihood that your pet will survive, and what kind of quality of life your pet can expect now and in the future. We know this is never an easy choice for pet owners to make and you want to ensure that your pet is able to maintain its comfort and dignity during its final days, hours, and moments.
Pet euthanasia is a painless process that will help bring about an end to your pet’s suffering. You can even be with your pet to say your final goodbye.
