Pet Euthanasia
We are here when every second counts

Making the hardest decision with compassion and support.

At Small Animal Emergency Hospital of Westfield, we understand that deciding on pet euthanasia is one of the most challenging and heart-wrenching choices a pet parent can face. Our compassionate team is dedicated to supporting you through this difficult time by providing all the necessary information and emotional support to make an informed decision about your beloved pet’s end-of-life care.

Understanding When It’s Time to Say Goodbye

Deciding if pet euthanasia is the right option involves considering many factors when your pet is experiencing or has experienced an emergency. Our experienced veterinarians are here to discuss all aspects of your pet’s condition, helping to assess their pain levels, mobility, treatment options and cost, and chance of recovery. We are committed to ensuring that you clearly understand your pet’s health and the potential outcomes, allowing you to make a decision that prioritizes their dignity and well-being.

Our Pet Euthanasia Process

The process of euthanasia at Small Animal Emergency Hospital of Westfield is handled with the utmost respect and gentleness. We create as calm and quiet an environment as possible for you and your pet, ensuring their last moments are peaceful. For your pet’s comfort, we administer a gentle sedation before the pet euthanasia procedure. The sedative allows them to pass away peacefully without any discomfort. Whether or not you would like to stay with your pet in their final moments is up to you, but your presence can be soothing for your companion.
