Euthanasia is the hardest thing in having a pet, but the majority of the times it is the best thing we can do for them at the end of their lives. We allow them the dignity of not suffering from terminal diseases or extreme pain.
What is pet euthanasia and how do I know when it’s the right time?
There is no right answer to the question of when the right time is. As pet ‘parents’ we often just know and feel that our pets tell us. We evaluate their quality of life; are they eating and enjoying the treats that they normally do, are they happy to see us when we come home, do their bad days outweigh their good?
Can I say goodbye to my pet in the comfort of our home?
Yes. One of our veterinarians will do a house call to allow you the time and comfort in your home. This often helps the process of grieving and reduces the stress on you and your pet from coming into the clinic.
What drug is used?
The medications used during euthanasia is an overdose of an anesthetic. Dogs are sedated prior to the euthanasia procedure to help ensure that your friend passes peacefully.
What’s the cost of euthanasia?
Call and talk to our reception team to discuss the cost of euthanasia and aftercare services.
Does the clinic also provide bereavement counselling?
We understand that everyone manages with death and grieves differently. We want you to be at peace with the passing of your pet whether in the golden years or from an unexpected death.

The following changes are effective as of Tuesday, March 24, 2020:
1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 506.466.2543. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.
2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.
3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. Hours are subject to change.
4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 3-5 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.
5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. We encourage payments to be done over the phone with a credit card or e-Transfer.
