End of Life Care
A difficult decision.
When a cat's quality of life deteriorates to the point where they experience more bad days than good days, you may be faced with the difficult decision regarding whether to choose euthanasia.
The same way we provide compassionate care for cats in their early days, we’re prepared to support you and provide end of life care for them during their last. As partners in your cat’s health, we’ll make sure you’re informed about all potential treatment options before you make a decision. We understand that making that kind of choice is never easy, but we promise to be there every step of the way.
Should you decide euthanasia is the right choice for your cat, we’ll prepare you for the process and answer any questions you may have about what’s going to happen. We hope you’ll find some comfort knowing our humane methods will ensure your cat is laid to rest peacefully.
Coping with Cat Loss
Cats are family and losing them comes with the same grief as any other loss. If you’re struggling with grief following the loss of your cat, remember to:
- Give yourself time to mourn and cry
- Do your best to stick to your regular routine
- Talk about your feelings with family, friends, or even our hospital staff
- Memorialize your cat in a way that’s special to you
