End-of-Life Care & Pet Euthanasia in Baltimore, MD
Pets deserve the highest quality care at every stage of their life. When they reach their last days or weeks, it’s important to meet with your vet to discuss your pet’s needs and make sure they are as comfortable as possible in the time remaining. It is also essential to discuss the possibility of pet euthanasia. This is the most challenging aspect of caring for, and loving, a pet. Their companionship is akin to that of a true family member, and saying goodbye is never easy.
Here at Belvedere Veterinary Center, we will do everything possible to make the end-of-life process easier for you and your family and offer all the support you need to know you have made the right decision. Call us today at (410) 999-3300.
What to Expect During a Pet Euthanasia Appointment
The decision to euthanize is a personal one, and when you bring in your pet to see us, our team will respect your privacy to the utmost and give you and your family the time you need to say goodbye. Our goal with euthanasia is to help your pet pass away peacefully and painlessly, with their loved ones by their side.
The euthanasia procedure is preceded by the administration of anesthesia, which allows your pet to drift into a deep and relaxing sleep. This ensures there will be no stress or discomfort for them when we administer the euthanasia solution.
Belvedere Veterinary Center partners with Agape Pet Services for cremation, pet urns, and other personalized keepsakes. To make your pet’s euthanasia appointment easier for you and your family, we recommend making cremation and keepsake arrangements in advance if possible.
