Pet clinic

Coping with the impending loss of a pet
is one of the most difficult experiences a pet parent will face.

Whether your furry friend is approaching his golden years or has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, it’s important to calmly guide the end-of-life experience and minimize any discomfort or distress. As your pet’s health declines, you may elect to care for your pet at home (under the supervision of a veterinarian) or you may decide to end his suffering with euthanasia- "End of Life Care"
A time comes when every pet owner must face difficult decisions.
Here are some considerations from the a.s.p.c.a..
  •         * IS YOUR PET IN PAIN? Sometimes an animal will continue to eat or drink in spite of pain or disorientation.

  •         * CARING FOR THE ELDERLY PET - The most important thing you can do for your elderly pet is to minimize any pain or distress they're experiencing.

  •         * PET HOSPICE CARE - We can teach you how to provide intensive home care to help your ill pet be as comfortable as possible.

When It's Time

We will provide a painless, peaceful end for a pet who would otherwise continue to suffer.
We have had special training to provide your pet with a humane and gentle passing.

For guidance on how to help children during this difficult time we are providing a link to Helping a Child Cope with Pet Loss which offers a variety of suggestions based on the age of the child from 2 & 3 year olds up to adolescents.

We primarily work with Sutherlin Kennels  to assist you with this difficult time for you and your pet.

If you have any other questions please feel free to call on us.

If it is after hours, you can visit the aspca's website to learn more about this difficult time.

We also work with Pearson's Pet Chapel  to assist you with deciding the final resting place for your pet.

Pets come into our lives to teach us unconditional love,
and when they depart they teach us about loss;
A new pet will not ever replace the old,
it comes to teach us to love again.
