Euthanasia Services for Pets

The decision to help a pet pass peacefully through humane euthanasia can be one of the most difficult ones you face as a pet owner. We have a comfortable private room in our clinic where you and your family can spend the time you need to say goodbye to your beloved pet. The process will be discussed with you and we will take the time to answer any questions you have. Additionally, we are partnered with Gateway Pet Memorial Services who offer cremation as well as memorial services and products. You can read more about what they offer on their website: gatewaypetmemorial.com

What is pet euthanasia and how do I know when it’s the right time?


Choosing the right time to proceed with this decision can be challenging, but our veterinary team will be there to support you and help you make the right choice for your pet.

How is the euthanasia drug administered?


The medication is typically administered via an IV injection.

Does your hospital provide bereavement counseling?


We are always here to listen and talk with owners who are having a difficult time coping with the loss of their pet. A highly useful resource we recommend is Ottawa’s pet loss support group at ottawapetloss.com.
