Euthanasia Services for Pets

Like you, we are also pet owners and animal lovers. Pets are not just our loyal companions—they are truly members of our families. At West Brant Animal Hospital, our team will provide you with all of the information you need during this difficult time. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your inquiries about pet euthanasia. At a consultation, we can discuss this option in more depth, and explore how it may work for you, your pet and your family.

What happens when a dog/cat/pet is euthanized?

During a pet euthanasia, an injection of a drug will be given to your pet. It is essentially an overdose which will stop their heart, lungs and other organs from functioning. The entire process is over within a matter of minutes.

Do pets feel pain when they are being euthanized?

Not at all. They will feel no pain, from the start to the end of the procedure. Our team will make sure that they are comfortable throughout the entire process.

Can I be with my pet during their euthanasia?

Yes, absolutely. Your presence can help calm your pet and make them feel at ease. We understand that you and other members of your family will want to be with your pet until the very end. Our team strives to accommodate all of our clients and cater to whatever it is that they require, to the best of our abilities.
