Advanced Mobile Vet | At-Home Euthanasia
Our pets are such big parts of our hearts, lives, and families. When a beloved pet gets sick with a terminal illness or reaches the end of his life, it can often become more humane to euthanize a pet rather than allow it to live in pain. Advanced Mobile Vet, we serve several counties, including Orange and Seminole, and can help with at-home euthanasia services for your pets.
What Are the Advantages of At-Home Euthanasia for Your Dog or Cat?
Taking a pet to the veterinarian for euthanasia can be a bit of a traumatic experience. You are taking a pet that may already not be feeling well to a place that is either not all that familiar or that does not make them feel all that at ease. Therefore, the number one advantage of at-home euthanasia for your dog or cat is the fact that the pet gets to stay at home in a comfortable environment.
Additionally, at the vet's office, only one or two people may be allowed to be present and the period before and after the procedure may be a bit more rushed. At home, you can have as many people present as you like and take as much time as you need to say goodbye before the vet arrives and after the euthanasia is complete.
What Is the At-Home Euthanasia Process Like?
While the procedure can vary depending on the veterinary professional performing it, the process usually takes place in a series of steps.
- The family will be given an opportunity to place the pet in a comfortable part of the house and spend time with the pet
- The veterinarian will administer medication so your pet will feel at ease and feel no pain
- The vet will administer the euthanasia medication
- The family will be given a few moments with the pet after the procedure
- Final arrangements will then take place, whether that is removing the remains for cremation or otherwise
What Happens to Your Pet's Remains after the Veterinarian Performs Euthanasia?
Once the pet has been euthanized in your home, you will have the opportunity to choose how their remains are handled. Many pet owners prefer to keep their pets and bury them on their own property. However, most mobile vets also offer to remove the remains and have them cremated for you. The cremated remains will be returned to you after the process so you can do what you prefer to do with their ashes.
