The end of a pet’s life can be a sad time. Florence Animal Hospital is committed to creating the best possible end-of-life experience for your pet and your family. When the time comes, we provide humane, pain-free euthanasia.

You may choose to remain with your pet until the end, or you may choose to trust our caring team to comfort your pet at this time. We respect your wishes at end of life and offer assistance with cremation or other aftercare options.

Every pet is special to us, as is every pet owner! We are here to provide you with guidance and support, during the final stage of your pet's life.
At Florence Animal Hospital we focus on comfort, palliative care, and supportive accommodations designed to keep your companion happy, relaxed, and pain-free until the end.

End of life decisions
The decision to euthanize a beloved pet is among the most difficult choices a pet owner ever has to make. As your veterinarian, we will meet with you to discuss the process and determine whether or not euthanasia is appropriate and if, or when, it should occur.

What is the Process Like?
Euthanasia is performed in a quiet and comfortable environment by an experienced veterinarian.

We will inject an anesthetic overdose into a vein through an IV catheter.

Within a few moments, the patient will pass away. Because an anesthetic is used, pets do not experience any discomfort. Our veterinarian will ensure that the heart, pulses, and breathing have stopped.

Pet owners have the option to remain in the room during the procedure if they choose.

What Can I Do To Prepare?
Prior to euthanasia, pet owners should decide how the pet's body will be cared for. This reduces the emotional stress at the time of the procedure.

Options include; burial, private cremation, or group cremation.

Many owners choose to spend their pet’s final days taking advantage of their remaining time together by giving their pet favorite treats or extra attention before they euthanize their dog.

Your veterinarian and the hospital staff at Florence Animal Hospital can also provide suggestions for making your pet’s final days a reflection of the care and love that he or she experienced throughout his or her life.
