Painless, compassionate pet euthanasia doesn't have to take place at a veterinarian's office. End of life is a difficult time for both pets and their humans. The experience is made worse by the need to take the pet on a final journey to a place that, if we are honest, no pet has ever liked, the vet's office. MVS Pet Care Las Vegas provides an at-home alternative for your pet's final moments with mobile euthanasia.
Why home euthanasia for pets?
Your pet may suffer from arthritis, cancer, kidney disease, heart disease, or other health conditions that have reduced their quality of life. Your pet may be in constant pain that medication can't relieve. Your faithful pet companion may find ways to communicate to you that it is time to go.
You want your pet to be comforted and reassured right down to the final moments. You don't want to have to put your pet in a carrier that gets jostled around in the car to be taken to a veterinarian's office with strange smells, scary sounds, and other sick pets. You don't want your pet's final moments spent wanting nothing more than to go home with you.
End of life for your pet is an emotional time for you as well. You don't want your final memory of your pet to be in a vet's office. You want to have a memory of taking care of your animal companion in your home with all of the kindness you have always shown your pet.
How will I know my pet's time has come?
Your veterinarian is your best source of information about what is medically possible for your pet. But no one knows your pet better than you. Your judgment is final regarding the right time for euthanizing your pet.
Should children be present?
Parents should decide whether a child is old enough to witness the passing of their pet. Remember that children who become emotional and need to leave in the middle of the procedure will need someone who can go with them for comfort. Also, keep in mind that loud crying and screaming can be upsetting to the pet.
Should other pets be present?
Surviving pets can be traumatized when their companion simply disappears without a trace. It's generally thought that other pets should be present during euthanasia so they can remember the changes in sounds and odors that they have associated with their companion animal.
What does home euthanasia look like?
Natural death is usually accompanied by twitches and seizures and other events that make unpleasant final memories. Home euthanasia allows your pet to pass peacefully as if entering a final sleep. MVS Pet Care offers a mobile vet service that allows your pet to spend his or her final moments at home.
