End-of-Life Care Services

As pet owners, the most challenging thing we have to do is say goodbye to our four-legged friends. We understand how complicated this process can be at Day Creek Animal Hospital, but just as we are there for you at every other stage of your pet’s life, we will be there for you when they enter their final days. We provide comprehensive pet end-of-life care and cat and dog euthanasia to meet your and your pet’s needs best.

Palliative Care

When it becomes clear that your pet is ready to cross the rainbow bridge, our staff will do everything possible to keep them comfortable in their final days. Our veterinarians will delicately discuss end-of-life care options with you and assist you in making the best decision for your companion and family. Palliative care may be an option if your pet has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or is weak from old age but can still live comfortably at home. This care aims to provide them with the best possible quality of life in their final days or weeks by using pain medication, special diets, symptom management, and human interaction.

Cat and Dog Euthanasia and Cremation

While euthanasia is a complex topic for anyone to broach, a peaceful goodbye is always best for every pet. When the time comes to say goodbye, the Deep Creek Animal Hospital team can offer counseling and support to assist you in making the best decision for your pet’s final day. The following are just a few of the ways we can tailor our services to your needs:

  • Whether you want to be with your pet in their final moments or say your farewell, our staff will accommodate you and ensure that your pet’s passing is private, quiet, and handled with care.
  • When the time comes, we will discuss options for handling ashes and memorialization with a local, well-respected private cremation service.

Please call our veterinary professionals at (909) 646-7387 if you have any questions or concerns about end-of-life pet care. We will do everything we can to assist you during this difficult time.
