Pittsburgh Private Home Pet Euthanasia

In-Home Euthanasia

The phrase “putting a pet to sleep” is used when referring to a caring and compassionate way of ending a pet’s life. It is done quietly and painlessly by causing a deep sleep through the use of a sedative injection followed by an overdose of an anesthetic injection which causes death within minutes.

We understand that bringing your pet to your vets office may be difficult or impossible if they are having trouble getting around or getting into the car causing increased anxiety. We understand that this can be upsetting to you and your pet. We will come to you so that your pet can be in the comfort of your home surrounded by people that love them.

This is typical of an in-home euthanasia visit: when we arrive at your home we will go over the procedure itself with everyone. We can collect payment at this time or after the procedure. At this point, we will give the sedation injection which is given in the back leg, if your pet is still eating we will have you feed them as a distraction. Family members may gather around the pet if they wish after the sedation is given. It takes approximately 3-5 minutes for your pet to gradually fall asleep until they are unconscious. Once we have your permission we will proceed with the last injection your pet will not be aware of this at all. We typically will listen to the heart afterward and let you know when your pet has passed. The entire visit usually takes less than 30 minutes.

After your pet has passed we will give you some time to spend with your pet before proceeding with aftercare arrangements, we will make a paw print for you at this time, if you like. Please let us know if you would like more than one paw print or if you do not want one at all.

We can discuss the euthanasia process in more detail over the phone to your satisfaction or in-home the day of the scheduled procedure including your wishes regarding burial or cremation.
