Making the Best Decision
Letting go is hard. Our animal clinic knows this well. As an owner, the decision to end your pet’s life is the most difficult one of all. Rapidly declining health, through advanced age or terminal illness, has a major impact on their overall quality of life. It is important to remember that euthanasia can be the gentlest course of action to end your pet’s suffering. When recommending end of life care, our animal clinic will provide you with the best options possible based on your individual circumstances.
Meadowmont Animal Hospital veterinarians are here to guide you every step of the way. We compassionately assess your elderly pet’s general health and quality of life and give you honest counsel on how best to proceed, and should the time come, begin the process of euthanasia.
