Making the decision to end an ailing or dying pet’s life can be one of the most difficult decisions that a pet owner can make. At Red Butte Veterinary Care in Salt Lake City, we offer humane and compassionate pet euthanasia services to clients who know that it is time to say goodbye to a faithful companion.

What is Pet Euthanasia?

Pet euthanasia is a medical procedure that ends a pet’s life. It is performed in the most humane, compassionate way possible for both the owner and the pet. This method of ending a pet’s life is performed in such a way that a sick, ailing or elderly pet’s last moments are spent quietly with loved ones.

Your pet’s passing will happen in such a way that their last moments are pain-free and filled with love, even though it is always a sad moment for the family members they leave behind.

Why is Pet Euthanasia Used?

Chronic and incurable pain or disease are the most common reasons why owners choose pet euthanasia. As pets get older, chronic disease can make the pain or discomfort of certain illnesses become unbearable. Many times owners see their pets in such extreme pain that the only logical solution to ending that pain is pet euthanasia.

In other situations, a pet might be diagnosed with an incurable illness that makes their life unbearable. Our staff at Red Butte Veterinary Clinic understands the emotional pain that a pet’s physical pain can cause to dog and cat owners. Sometimes the most compassionate action we can take toward a pet is to end their incurable pain through euthanasia.

How Pet Euthanasia is Performed

Pet euthanasia allows you to spend the final moments of your faithful animal’s life with them. We provide a quiet and comfortable environment as your loyal family friend is administered an anesthetic overdose. You will be able to pet your dear friend, hold their paw, and share in the peaceful end of their life as they fall asleep painlessly for the last time.

Our entire staff understands the pain of losing a beloved animal companion. That’s why we will be there and available for you if you have to make this incredibly difficult decision for your pet.
