Your relationship with your pet is unique and special. You are responsible for his or her care and welfare and will eventually be faced with making the decision for your pet. The decision concerning euthanasia will be one of the most difficult ones you will ever make regarding your pet. Though the decision is a personal one, it need not be a solitary one. We suggest that you consult your local veterinarian as well as your family and any close, personal friends.

How Will I Know When It's Time?

Determining the pet's quality of life is the most important factor in deciding when it is time to consider euthanasia. 

 This should include things such as : 

                      1.  Is your pet able to eat and drink?

                      2.  Is your pet able to urinate and defecate without soiling his or herself?

                       3.  Is your pet in pain (crying or vocalizing excesively)?

                       4.  Is your pet able to rest/sleep comfortably?

                       5.  Does your pet have difficulty breathing?

                       6.  Does your pet greet/recognize you?

These are just a few of the questions you should ask yourself in regards to your pet.  Other things to consider with your veterinarian are any chronic or terminal illnesses such as cancer.  If your pet is terminally ill or injured you should discuss life expectancy, financial and/or emotional cost of treatment.  Have your veterinarian explain your medical options and all possible outcomes.  Understanding your pets conditions and treatment options are vital in making an educated decision.  In most situations, you will have time to review the facts and options for your pet and his or her well being. Though no one can make the decision for you, your local veterinarian is your best guide to helping you.

The greatest gift our pets give to us is unconditional love.  During their final days of their lives, we must start to think about how to shift the focus from our needs to their needs.  Making arrangements and planning for this difficult time in advance will help alleviate some of the stress involved in making this decision.  Try to decide where your pet will feel most comfortable and secure and at peace.  Will this be a home euthanasia versus  a clinical setting?  Who would you like to be present?   Would you like to bury, or cremate your pet?  These are just a few of the things you will need to address and discuss with either your local veterinarian or Dr. Pearson.
