Putting your pet to sleep – the final decision

For nearly 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 even provide bedside blood tests to help us better understand how your pet is coping on the inside.

Most importantly I bring support and empathy to help you through that final physical step. My focus on compassion seems to soften the blow.

I am able to provide complete aftercare if needed – taking even the largest dogs with me for burial or cremation (plus return of ashes if desired). I am proud to work with a selection of Perth’s most trusted cremation services to achieve this.

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