End of Life Services

At American Animal Hospital, we know that for you, as a pet owner, even thinking about your pet’s final days is difficult and emotionally draining. Your pet is part of the family, and you bond with them is so strong, that it makes this difficult time hard to bear. We encourage you to speak with our caring doctors and staff so that we can make this decision as least traumatic as possible.

We want you to know that we will take care of all the arrangements and work very closely with an animal crematorium to ensure that your best friend receives nothing but love and respect after they have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Visit here should you have more detailed questions or want to special order an urn or headstone.

As your family veterinarian, we can certainly guide you through the remaining days, weeks, or months you have with your pet and will be here for you both on the final day. Our veterinarians will come to your house and perform the euthanasia, if requested, in order to have total privacy.

We know this can be a hard time for you. We hope this helps.
