Supportive & Caring Pet Loss Guidance
It goes without saying that the decision to humanely euthanize your beloved companion animal brings hardships and internal struggles that only pet owners can understand. With our compassionate veterinary guidance at Haines Road Animal Hospital, we can lead you to a peace of mind path that will assure you are making the best decision for your pet. You can also rest assured that your animal's wellbeing is our greatest priority; we only suggest pet euthanasia if we have exhausted all options and feel comfort and quality of life are being compromised for longevity.
Our caring veterinarians and staff will be there for you every step of the way. Out of respect for you, your family, and your pet, we provide a tranquil, peaceful environment during the process. As a small water fountain flows and a single candle flickers, we encourage you to accompany your pet in this serene room. In addition, a separate exit is provided so you can depart our facility with privacy.
