Euthanasia & Cremation Services for Pets

End of life care is just as important as caring for your pet in the earlier stages of their journey. Your pet ages a lot faster than you, so it is natural for their lifespan to be shorter than yours. At Cremona Veterinary Clinic, we’re aware that nothing prepares you to say the final goodbye to your loyal companion. Our veterinarians are here to listen to your concerns and give advice on the best course of action to take. We’re prepared to give your pet a respectful and pain-free send-off when the time is right.

What is veterinary euthanasia?

Euthanasia is the medical term used for the peaceful passing of one’s pet. It is sometimes referred to as “putting your pet to sleep”. It is pain-free and often seen as the final act of mercy you can give your loyal companion.

How is euthanasia performed?

To prepare our clients, we always inform them of what to expect before we begin a procedure. We encourage families to spend quality time with their pet leading up to the appointment. If you wish, you may bring your loyal companion’s favourite toy or item to make them more relaxed. We begin by administering the medicine through an IV under their skin. The medication ends their life quickly without any pain or discomfort. The euthanasia medicine stops all brain and heart activity.

Can I stay with my pet during euthanasia?

Yes, we allow pet owners to be with their furry friends while we perform the procedure. Your presence may also bring additional comfort to your pet. We know many struggle to make this decision and may need some time with their loyal companion to say their final goodbye.

Pet Cremations

At Cremona Veterinary Clinic we take great pride in handling your pet’s remains. We ensure cremations are carried out in a way that honours the life that your pet lived. The cremation service we offer aligns perfectly with our main goal of providing the best quality service to all pets even at the end of their life.

We would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to all our clients that have been so patient with us during the current pandemic situation. We are happy to announce that we are open again!

We are kindly asking that our clients still wear a mask when they are in the building to protect themselves and our staff. Our waiting room will be limited to one client at a time. All our staff will also still be wearing their masks and taking care to wipe down frequently touched surfaces and sanitize in between clients and patients as we have always done.

If you are uncomfortable entering the clinic, please do not hesitate to call and we are happy to serve you and your pet curbside. As always cats must be in carriers, and dogs must be on a leash for safety and liability reasons.

We know that these have been trying times for everyone, but rest assured your pet is still receiving the highest quality of care that you have always known from our veterinarians and staff members.

If there are any concerns or special circumstances, please feel free to discuss this with our staff and we can take it into consideration.
