At North Oatlands Animal Hospital we understand that it’s never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet, and we want to help make that difficult time more manageable by providing compassionate hospice and euthanasia services for your animal companion. We offer those services at our hospital and via house call within our community.
We offer hospice services and will work with you to ensure your pet’s comfort and dignity during his or her last days and final moments. Do you have special requests? Do you have questions about care of your pet’s remains? We can help you with these concerns and will make every effort to accommodate your wishes at this very difficult time.
There are times when all the capabilities of medical science have been exhausted and euthanasia is the only way to prevent an animal from suffering needlessly. Our veterinarians are here to answer any and all questions you may have about the euthanasia process, and to explore any other solutions to your pet’s condition, leaving euthanasia as the very last resort.
