Here at Corsicana Veterinary Clinic, we understand how difficult it can be to lose a pet. The inevitable fact of pet ownership is that most likely, we as pet owners will outlive our dearest of companions. It is our goal as Veterinary providers to help our clients provide the highest quality of life for their pets, as well as assisting the client with all the information necessary to assess a pet’s quality of life during difficult times. Whether severe complications persist due to old age, traumatic injury or illness, the Corsicana Veterinary Clinic can ensure a peaceful, humane, and loving end to your pet’s pain and suffering.
Understandably, most pet owners never contemplate end of life scenarios regarding their pets. Our goal is to present our clients with all of the pertinent information in regards to the euthanasia services provided by the Corsicana Veterinary Clinic. To clarify various aspects of our services, explainations are listed below:
Euthanasia is a medical procedure conducted by a Veterinarian to ease the pain and suffering of a pet. If there is a medical condition that is treatable, it is the Veterinarian’s purpose to ensure that the client is well informed before making the final decision in regards to their pet’s medical care.
Corsicana Veterinary Clinic does offer at-home euthanasia services. We do this for families who wish to have their pet at home, where they are most comfortable, during their final moments.
Clients also have the option to have the pet sedated prior to the administration of the euthanasia drug. Sedation can be administered so that the patient is asleep, resting peacefully prior to the euthanasia procedure.
Once the euthanasia procedure has been performed, the client has three options in regards to their pet’s remains:
- Clients may take the remains home with them.
- Clients may opt for a “Communal” Cremation (The pet’s remains will be cremated, but the ashes will be disposed by the cremation facility.)
- Clients may opt for a “Private” Cremation (The pet’s remains will be cremated, and the ashes will be returned to the client in an Urn.)
Corsicana Veterinary Clinic uses the Toothacres facilities for all cremation and disposal services. All cremation arrangements are handled by the Corsicana Veterinary Clinic.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding euthanasia or cremation services, please do not hesitate to contact our office for more information.
