We understand that each family has their own unique set of wishes when it comes to saying goodbye and memorializing their pet. We will respect your wishes and will try to make the process as smooth as possible.
We can assure you and your family that your beloved pet will receive the respect and quality of care that they deserve. We believe that families, in time of sorrow, desire personal attention, comfort and absolute assurance that every detail will be carried out perfectly and gracefully.
The end of our pet’s life is never easy to accept. The decision to relieve suffering can be the most unselfish act of love we can offer a pet. We will do whatever we can to help you at this very difficult time. We are here to support you through this difficult decision.
This is a very private setting. Only your family, doctor and technician are present. Your doctor will walk you through all of the above steps so that there are no surprises. You can spend as much time as you need with your pet, both before and after the procedure.
The truth is there’s not much we can say to help you feel better after losing a pet. But we will always be here to listen to your feelings and to offer you our support.
