Pet Euthanasia

we understand and are here to help during this emotionally painful time

A senior patient visits Westside Veterinary Hospital in Marietta, GA, for an end-of-life consultation.

As a loving pet parent, you probably wish that your furry family member could stay by your side forever.

Unfortunately, dogs and cats have lives that are much shorter than our own, and painful goodbyes are inevitable. Losing a pet is never easy, and it’s often made even more difficult when you are forced to put an end to their suffering. At Westside Veterinary Hospital, we understand and are here to help during this emotionally painful time. We provide humane euthanasia in Marietta and will help make your pet’s departure from this world peaceful, dignified, and pain-free.

Knowing When to Say Goodbye

We all hope that our pets wil pass away peacefully in their sleep when the time comes. Unfortunately, this doesn’t usually happen. Instead, pet parents have to make the agonizing decision to have their beloved companion put to sleep. Knowing when the time is right is incredibly difficult, but there are certain signs that indicate your pet’s quality of life has diminished significantly enough to warrant euthanasia: 
  • Refusal to eat or drink
  • Inability to stand
  • Loss of interest in once-loved toys and activities
  • Crying out in pain
  • Inability to stand to eliminate waste
  • Uncharacteristic aggression

Pet Euthanasia in Marietta

When you visit Westside Veterinary Hospital for pet euthanasia in Marietta, we will take you and your beloved pet to our quiet, private euthanasia suite. Once there, we will go over your concerns with you and examine your pet. The final choice is, of course, yours to make, but we will let you know whether we think euthanasia is the right decision. Our goal is to ensure that you make a decision with which you feel comfortable and confident. We’ll explain the process to you and make sure you understand everything before we proceed. 

Euthanasia is pain-free, and we administer a sedative to ensure that patients do not feel any fear or anxiety in their final moments. Saying goodbye is hard, but when a pet is no longer able to enjoy life, having them humanely put to sleep is one of the kindest things you can do for them.
