Compassionate End-of-Life Care

Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is never easy. We’re here to help make the transition as calm and as respectful as possible. We’ll answer all your questions regarding our euthanasia procedure, and we’ll be completely transparent, sharing as much or as little information as you’d like. A lit candle in our waiting area means that someone is in our comfort room saying goodbye to a cherished pet.

Knowing When It’s Time

We don’t expect you to make this decision alone. Your Mountainside veterinarian can help you understand your pet’s condition and prognosis. We’ll create a treatment plan for pain and symptom management to help your pet maintain an optimal quality of life for as long as possible.

Dedicated Comfort Room

One room in our hospital is reserved for those saying goodbye, those who want to spend time with a hospitalized pet, or those who need some time to process an upsetting diagnosis. We keep our comfort room dimly lit, and the room’s fireplace provides soothing warmth. You’re invited to spend as much time as needed with your pet.

Other Considerations

When the time comes, we’ll help you make arrangements for cremation, burial, or other services with area providers, including Valley Pet Crematory and Peaceful Passage.

Losing a pet is a deeply emotional experience, and everyone grieves differently. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to make the transition more comfortable or individualized for you and your pet.
