    Deciding When to Euthanize
    Many pet owners find it difficult to consider euthanasia, thinking that they may be making an unloving decision. This is normal, but it is important to remember that a life of pain and physical immobility is difficult for your pet to endure, no matter how much you try to take away the pain. Remember that your decision is hard, but it’s not wrong if it is grounded in love and compassion for your pet’s suffering.

    Making an Appointment for the Procedure
    When you call your veterinarian to schedule the pet euthanasia procedure , explain to the receptionist that you would like to know what to expect. You may want to schedule the appointment at a time when the practice is not busy so that the veterinarian will have plenty of time to speak with you and let you say goodbye.

    During and After the Procedure
    You may experience very intense emotions when saying goodbye to your pet. You may choose to stay with your pet as your veterinarian performs the euthanasia procedure, or say goodbye before the procedure begins. No matter your decision, you can find peace knowing that the process will not be scary or painful for your pet. After your pet has crossed the rainbow bridge, you will need to consider whether burial or cremation is the right option. This is a personal decision, though your veterinarian may be able to offer suggestions.

    Many pet parents are left with the hard decision of where and how to lay their pet to rest after euthanasia. To learn about the options that Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory can offer during this difficult time, call (817) 478-6696 or visit our website.
