How will I know when it is time for euthanasia?

We have found the following quality of life resources useful in helping families to determine if it is the right time.

What happens at the euthanasia appointment?

After introductions and meeting your pet, we give the first injection subcutaneously (like a vaccine, with a tiny needle). This medication has pain control and sedation in it, so your pet will peacefully fall asleep over about 5-10 minutes. Once your pet is care-free, we will give the second injection, which is an overdose of a sedative, intravenously. After your pet has passed, we create a pawprint for you out of modeling clay. This pawprint will air-dry on a flat surface in about 72 hours, and it can be painted/decorated once dry.
