The Euthanasia Process

During the euthanasia process, we make sure that your pet is as comfortable as possible. We use a quiet room, and, depending on your pet’s condition, you may be allowed to hold or stroke your pet as we administer the drugs to put them to sleep. This is usually a barbiturate, which falls into the same category of anesthesia. The drug works by putting your pet to sleep and removing the sensation of pain. As they lose consciousness, the heart and lungs stop functioning. We will check for a heartbeat to ensure that the process is complete. 

We are here for you and your family as you grieve the loss of your pet. We understand that your pet is an important part of your family, so the pain of loss can feel very strong. Westfield Veterinary Group is here for you and your family in this difficult time.

What to Know About Euthanasia 

Euthanasia is the practice of ending a pet’s life intentionally to prevent pain and suffering. For pets who are elderly, sick, or injured, it can be one of the kindest things that you can do for them – even though it is painful for us to say goodbye.

Questions to ask yourself if you are considering euthanizing your pet: 

  • Is my pet still able to enjoy their day-to-day life?
  • Does my pet have more bad days than good days?
  • Is my pet in pain?
  • Has my pet stopped eating or drinking?

Depending on your answers to the questions above, it might be time to consider humane euthanasia. Our team of veterinary professionals can help you make this difficult decision. We will be able to conduct a thorough assessment of your pet’s health and well-being and then provide a realistic outlook for your pet’s health.
