Euthanasia Services for Pets

As pet owners and animal lovers ourselves, we understand the emotional pain surrounding the decision to say goodbye to your pet. These animals are not just our loyal companions—they are truly members of our families. Our team will ensure that you have all of the information that you need in order to make the choice that is best for you, your family and your pet. You are more than welcome to reach out to us at 250.723.9900 for any questions and to schedule a consultation, where we can explore in more detail the options that are available for your circumstance.

What happens when a dog/cat/pet is euthanized?

During a euthanasia, your pet will be given an injection of a drug that will cause their heart, lungs and other organs to stop working. The process takes only a few minutes to be completed.

Do pets feel pain when they are being euthanized?

No. Your pet will feel zero pain during the entire procedure. We strive to make them as comfortable and as relaxed as possible.

Can I be with my pet during their euthanasia?

Yes, absolutely. Your presence can help calm your pet and make them feel at ease. We understand that you and other members of your family will want to be with your pet until the very end. Our team strives to accommodate all of our clients and cater to whatever it is that they require, to the best of our abilities.
