East El Paso Animal Hospital understands the complex emotions surrounding end-of-life decisions for your pet. Our compassionate veterinary team offers support and experience during this painful time and will provide end-of-life services and resources for you.
Whether your pet’s final days are expected after being a senior companion, or an unexpected illness or injury for a younger friend, we know the process is never easy. Our caring and compassionate veterinary staff is at your disposal to discuss all aspects of your pet’s end-of-life care. We can help you sort through key quality of life considerations, review all the medical options available, and listen to your concerns. We are here to support you, and we respect this very personal decision.
Once it has been decided that saying goodbye is the kindest option for your pet, you will be asked to sign brief paperwork confirming your decision. We will then give you as much time as you need before a final injection is given. This process is peaceful and pain-free. The veterinarian will confirm that your pet has passed and you will be given time and privacy to say your goodbyes.
