Compassionate End-of-Life Pet Care in Bayville NJ
Sometimes, before we know it, our pets become seniors and reach the end of a comfortable and happy life. No one wants his or her pet to suffer. We are very sensitive to the feelings and emotions that come when a pet's life is near the end. Our first priority is the comfort of your pet, and we will do all we can to alleviate any pain or suffering your pet may be experiencing.
Support and Guidance Through a Difficult Time
Because our pets can't talk, it is sometimes hard to know just how much they are suffering and when it might be time to say goodbye. While the decision is always yours, we are more than happy to offer our opinion about the health and prognosis for an aging pet. If and when it's decided it is time to say goodbye, the pet owner's wishes will be treated with the utmost respect and compassion.
There are many options for you during this difficult time, and we will make sure you understand each and answer any questions you may have. When pets are euthanized, they are given a strong sedative first to calm them. Pet owners are welcome to stay with their pet during this time, and through the full process, should they desire. Some owners would rather not witness the passing of their pet, and that is completely fine, too. Whatever your wishes, we are here for you and will treat your pet with dignity and compassion.
Remembering Your Pet
The memory of a pet never leaves us, and sometimes it's helpful to share our feelings and good memories with others. Our website has several options for sharing pictures and stories about your beloved pet:
