How to Prepare for the Pet Home Euthanasia Visit

When preparing for your pet´s euthanasia, it is helpful to decide who you would like to have present during the euthanasia. Some people - yourself included - may be comfortable being present during parts of the euthanasia procedure but not all of it. We encourage each individual who will be present to do whatever feels appropriate at the time, including leaving the room or coming back at any time during the euthanasia visit. If you wish to be alone during the procedure, you may still want to ask a friend or family member to be with you before and/or afterward - in person or by phone - so their support is available.

The family decides where in or around the home the euthanasia will take place. It’s best if the pet is at the designated spot at the time Dr. Shanan arrives, since moving a seriously ill pet from one room to another may aggravate his or her distress at a time we would like the pet to be most calm and comfortable.
