As a pet owner, saying goodbye to your beloved family pet is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. Home Pet Euthanasia in San Mateo and the surrounding areas is something that I address frequently.

Because pets age much faster than we do, it is unfortunately a decision that many pet owners will eventually have to face. Ensuring a pain-free and peaceful death is the kindest final act a care giver can do for their beloved companion pet.

Although euthanizing a much loved and faithful companion is a very hard decision, it is the right decision when a pet is suffering from a chronic painful, debilitating or incurable disease.

Pet owners who are wondering when the right time is should consider the following points.

  • Each pet is a unique entity and every situation and illness is different. There is no universal rule to follow when it is time to say goodbye.
  • Speaking to your veterinarian about the specific medical conditions that your loved one faces is vital for doing what is best for your pet and your family.
  • It may help to talk to a close friend or family member who is less emotionally involved. This helps you to gain some perspective on the situation
  • Ask yourself some important questions. Sometimes, writing down your thoughts can help the decision making process. Some questions that help pet owners who are struggling with this decision include:
    • Why do I think it might be time to euthanize?
    • What are my fears and concerns about euthanizing?
    • Whose interests, besides those of my pet, am I taking into account?
    • What are the opinions of the people around me?
    • Am I making this decision because it is best for my pet or because it is best for me
