Putting your pet to sleepĀ – the finalĀ decision

For over 3 decades I have been helping people with the burden of saying goodbye to their animal family. People always tell me they expect it must be the worst part of my job. It is actually an honour. Often a very sombre one, but a deeply felt honour to help caring people through this necessary process. Most importantly, the specific process I have refined over the years is so gentle, fear-free and painless that I am reassured by knowing I am putting pets to sleep in simply the kindest and happiest way possible, and the most personal, private and caring way possible for you.

To help you make the decision, I provide a highly compassionate and competent assessment of your pet, informed by the latest research in palliative care and an understanding of the emotions of people involved. I can communicate difficult medical concepts at an appropriate level to help everyone understand the most important issues. Quality of life is the key – I focus on assessing your pet’s overall happiness with respect to issues that can, and issues that can’t, be improved. I can provide you with an easy to understand quality of life assessment form that will help us decide the right time.

Most importantly I bring support and empathy to help you through that final physical step. My focus on compassion and how you are coping makes a world of difference.

We are able to provide complete aftercare if needed – I can transport your sweet departed with me for burial or cremation (plus return of ashes if desired). We have been working with the amazing people at Passing Paws for over 8 years now – including for our own pets – and have complete trust in the integrity of their service.

If you are worried or just not sure, call us today.
