The decision to euthanize is never an easy one. Euthanasia literally means to give a “good death” and Dr. Hellert believes this to be the “hardest act, and the greatest gift” you have to give your pet. And it is OK. It is OK to be sad. It is OK to mourn. And it is OK to say good-bye.
If you need help deciding if now is the right time: Our team will be happy to discuss hospice care, pain control options, and quality of life concerns. You can make a telehealth appointment with our doctors and together we will come up with a plan that is best for your family.
If now is the right time: Our team offers the gift of home euthanasia for the comfort or your pet and your family. We work with S&S Cremation of Centralia, IA to offer cremation, paw prints, urns, and personalized name plates. Or you may prefer to bury your pet in a special spot you have already picked out.
