The End of Life's Journey

After a lifetime of unconditional love and companionship, we must all prepare for the sad day when we must say goodbye to our pets. As fellow animal owners, we’ve all been through this with our own pets and appreciate how profoundly painful, emotional and difficult this time can be. At Saint Francis Hospital for Animals, it’s our goal to help ease the stress of this painful time for our patients and clients. Of all the services we provide, we consider the end of your pet’s journey to be a solemn time that requires our greatest compassion.

We provide euthanasia services designed to ensure the comfort and dignity of your pet, and to provide you with peace of mind. Unless it is an emergency situation, clients needing this service are encouraged to request the last appointment of the day. This allows our doctors and care team to provide your family with our undivided attention. It also provides the opportunity for clients to spend time with their pet once they are at rest.

If you have questions about this process or need help making difficult end-of-life decisions, please give us a call. Our compassionate team will be there to support you both in your time of need.


We look forward to hearing from you
