Your pet is sick. The diagnosis and subsequent prognosis isn’t good. Now is the time to contemplate advanced animal hospice care or putting your pet to sleep (euthanasia). But where do you turn for help? What are the next steps? How do you make this final period of your companion’s life as peaceful as possible? And if the time comes and your pet is put to sleep, how do you ensure a dignified and painless end?
Home to Heaven provides the knowledge and support you need to care for your pet at this difficult time. Our service has been helping families since 2006 and we have the experience you are looking for. We help you make the right decisions for your pet and your family. Exceptional care is our entire focus. And we make the experience of putting your dog to sleep supportive and gentle. When it comes to hospice care for your pet, every situation is unique. Each condition requires its own special care and attention and it is important to explore all your options soon after your companion has been diagnosed. There may not be a definitive timeline, but we’ll create a plan of care to make things easier for everyone. Depending on the situation, we’ll help you decide how to proceed with your pet’s final moments – through hospice-assisted natural death or via euthanasia when suffering cannot be managed and prevented.
When we use the phrase, ‘putting a dog to sleep’ or 'putting a cat to sleep,' we are referring to a caring and compassionate euthanasia of your pet. Your dog is put to sleep quietly and painlessly through a soothing anesthetic. He or she enters a deep sleep followed by a gentle passing.
The experience of putting your pet to sleep will be emotionally difficult, but it will also provide you with the reassurance in your grief that you provided the least painful and most respectful way for your pet to part, especially when natural death support was not an option. You can take your time in saying your goodbyes, sitting with the family and with your pet in your own home. Dr. Cooney and her staff can be so comforting during the experience. It can be a poignant time to reflect on the many happy moments you spent with your cherished animal and on the years of companionship you shared.
At Home to Heaven, we take the time to learn about your situation, your faithful companion, and the particular needs you have. And help you turn a difficult moment into a time you’ll remember as a peaceful and loving farewell.
We will be there with you through this process - before, during, and even years after you say goodbye to your beloved pet.
