Cat Euthanasia

Euthanasia is a very difficult decision to make, and the team at Muskoka Animal Hospital are here to support you through the process of saying goodbye.

When should I consider pet euthanasia?

A discussion with your veterinarian can help you decide when the right time is to euthanize your pet.

Can I say goodbye to my pet in the comfort of our home?

We do not offer home euthanasia, but we have a private and quiet room for you to spend time with your pet before saying goodbye.

Can I stay with my cat during euthanasia?

We recommend and welcome you to stay with your cat during euthanasia. If you would like to bring any toys or blankets to help your furry family member be more comfortable, please do so.

What is the cost of pet euthanasia?

If you are considering euthanasia, please contact the hospital and one of our team members will provide you with more information.

Does your hospital provide bereavement counselling?

We are here to answer any questions you may have and can provide you with contact details if you are looking for further support.
