What to Expect During A Euthanasia Appointment
Dr. Janie will discuss your needs prior to your appointment. We will discuss your wishes for the euthanasia procedure including where you would like it to take place, who will be present, and what to expect during and after the procedure and the cost of putting your dog or cat to sleep. Dr. Janie gives all pets anesthesia which causes a deep and peaceful sleep, prior to doing anything else.
Things to think about include:
Does your pet have a favorite bed or place to sit?
Does your pet feel more comfortable inside or outside?
What time of day would be best for your family?
What would you like to do with your pet's remains?
I can help guide you through making these decisions during our consultation.
When I arrive to your appointment I will greet your pet and family. When your dog or cat is comfortable they will receive pain medication and anesthesia that will allow them to relax and really sleep deeply. At this point your pet will be free of pain and will be prepared for the second euthanasia injection. An IV catheter will be placed in dogs. You will be welcome to hold and talk to your dog or cat and even keep them on your lap. We are here to honor each pet and make the process comfortable and loving.
What to Expect During an Acupuncture Appointment
We will need a clean place to sit on the floor with enough room for your dog and two people. Your dog can sit on a dog bed or blanket. We will talk for 20-30 minutes and treatment will last 20-30 minutes. Most dogs love eating some frozen baby-food during their acupuncture treatment. If it is close to a meal time please wait until after treatment to feed your dog. You will be welcome to sit by your dog's head for the whole procedure.
