Dog Euthanasia

At Riverview Animal Hospital, we have pets too and know how hard it is to say goodbye. We ensure that we are there for you along every step of your pet’s journey.

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

Pet euthanasia is an honorable and kind last decision that we can make for our beloved pets in their final time of need. We know it is a very difficult decision to make, our team is here for you to walk you through and help you every step of the way. Knowing when the right time to make this decision is never easy. Our team often say you will know in your heart when the right time is as the quality of your pet’s life is taken into consideration. Talking with your veterinarian can help in your time of need.

What drug is used?

Each family takes comfort in our family room during this difficult time. We ensure that your pet is peaceful and treated with the dignity that they deserve. The procedure does not take a lot of time and is very peaceful.

What’s the cost of euthanasia?

The cost of the procedure is discussed once the client has made the decision. We offer a cremation service, where you can choose if you would like your pet’s cremains returned to you. Please don’t hesitate to contact the hospital at 506-387-4015.
