Even though death is a part of life, it’s never easy to say goodbye to a beloved member of your family, even when that family member has four legs, a wagging or swishing tail, and possibly a cold, wet nose. When your companion pet is terminally ill, and all treatment options have been tried, Ross Bridge Animal Hospital offers end of life services to keep your pet comfortable and pain free while giving you time to say goodbye.
Having been there for you and your pet throughout his or her lifetime, we want to be there at the end as well, offering you kindness and compassion while helping your pet to experience terminal illness and the dying process with respect and dignity. Our understanding veterinarian has chosen medications that will ensure a pain free and peaceful end of life.
Following euthanasia, pet parents have the option of taking the remains with them for burial, or having their pet cremated. If they elect the cremation option, they can choose for the ashes to be returned to them in a standard or custom urn.
To help you preserve the memory of your steadfast friend, Ross Bridge Animal Hospital offers a memorial keepsake. We can make a cast of your pet’s paw print that you will be able to have with you always. Please ask about this service if you are interested.
If you live in Hoover, Homewood, Birmingham, Bessemer, or Shannon, Alabama, before you struggle through another day with a sick, elderly, or terminally ill pet that is suffering, call us at Ross Bridge Animal Hospital to learn how we can help you through this difficult time..
