Euthanasia Services for Pets

We sincerely empathize with you and your family if you are now at the point where you are considering end-of-life options for your pet. Please know our compassionate team will be with you to guide you through every step of the euthanasia process. If you wish to learn more about the euthanasia services here at Cobequid Animal Hospital, please call us at (902) 865-8110 and one of our client care receptionists will assist you with all of your concerns. You can also schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians for a more in-depth consultation.

How do I know if my pet should be euthanized?

We suggest you go over our Quality of Life Questionnaire created by our veterinarians that will help you assess your pet’s quality of life. The questions and pointers will help you decide if euthanasia is a logical option for your pet. Factors like pain, hygiene, mobility, behaviour must be considered when making your decision.

How is pet euthanasia performed at your hospital?

Our practice has a dedicated private area to perform these procedures. We also do at-home euthanasia services upon request (these are temporarily on hold due to the ongoing pandemic). Our team also works with Metro Pet Crematory to help you with cremation preparations and grief counselling.
