What to expect when I arrive:

  • Choose a comfortable place for you and your pet.  Have bedding available that you don't mind being soiled (this is a common occurrence after the body relaxes).  Give plenty of love, hugs and kisses.
  • I will arrive at the appointed time.  First, we will complete any paperwork.  You will need to sign a form allowing the euthanasia procedure and stating that the pet has not bitten anybody in the past 14 days (this is a state law).  I will answer any of your questions or concerns.
  • Your pet will receive a sedative injection.  This is a time for additional hugs and kisses. 
  • Once the pet is in a deep sleep (usually in 10-20 minutes), I will administer the final intravenous injection. 

The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
