Knowing when an animal would benefit the most from a humane euthanasia is never easy. Our doctors are here to help answer the question
IS IT TIME?
An appointment allows the doctor to see the mental and physical state your pet is in to make the suggestion accurately. Do understand that you are not forced to make any decisions on the spot. For many of us, we need time to think things over, and that’s okay.
We love your pets as much as you do, and euthanasias are never easy. But we’re here to help you make that call and keep the process as calm and easy as possible. Front Range Veterinary Clinic mainly performs euthanasias in clinic. Here is what you can expect when it comes time:
During a euthanasia, you are able to decide what you would prefer to be done with your pet’s body. In all cases, we will treat their body with respect and do with it what you wish. For many people, home burial is very important. For others, private cremation is the best option. In this case, owners will receive their pet’s ashes back. And for some, they wish for us to discard of the body for them. In this case, we utilize a company that will cremate your pet with others and scatter their ashes on their property, but there is still a fee for this. If you’d like to use a separate company for your pet’s body care, let your receptionist or technician know and they will accommodate.
