Compassionate Edmonton In-Home Pet Euthanasia

When you welcome a pet into your family, the last thing on your mind is having to say goodbye. Unfortunately, that time comes for every pet and its owner. Whether your pet's quality of life has severely degraded from age or an illness, you may be faced with the difficult decision to humanely end their suffering. At Shifa Farm & House Call Veterinary Services, we're committed to helping your pet's end-of-life experience go as comfortably as possible through in-home euthanasia.

We have extensive experience helping cats, dogs and other animals find peace through euthanasia. Our entire veterinary team works hard to cater to your pet and provide you with compassionate support throughout the process. Call us today to schedule your consultation appointment and find out if our Edmonton in-home euthanasia is the right choice for your beloved family pet.


Why Should I Euthanize My Pet at Home?

Although determining the conditions surrounding the end of your pet's life is difficult to think about, it's crucial that the way they transition is as pain- and stress-free as possible. Traditional office euthanasia can be a stressful experience for both you and your pet. From the car ride to the veterinarian's office to saying your goodbyes in an environment your pet is unfamiliar with, traditional euthanasia may not be right for your family.

In-home euthanasia provides a compassionate way to humanely end your pet's life in the familiarity and comfort of your own home. Instead of a cold, stainless steel table, your pet can spend their final moments in their favorite chair or in your arms. Our Edmonton in-home euthanasia services allow you and your pet to forgo listening to the bustle of a veterinary office and instead experience quiet and calm.

What to Expect

During your consultation appointment, we'll take the time to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you have about our Edmonton in-home euthanasia services. Our veterinary team will also conduct a comprehensive quality-of-life exam on your pet, which can help you decide whether euthanasia is right for them. If you decide to move forward with our in-home euthanasia services, we'll schedule a day and time that works best for you.

On the day of the procedure, we'll bring any necessary equipment and have you place your pet in a comfortable position. Our team will then sedate your pet so that both you and its final memory are calm and comfortable. Next, we'll perform a sedation assessment to ensure that your pet is sleeping deeply and doesn't respond to stimulation. Finally, we'll humanely euthanize them through a painless injection. We'll give you as much time as you need with your pet before we provide you with their death certificate and discuss how you'd like to handle their remains. Additionally, we can notify your primary veterinarian of your pet's passing to help keep their records updated and prevent you from having to make the emotional call.
