Dog Euthanasia

Compassionate, pain-free, at home dog euthanasia in Perth

Nobody knows your dog better than you do. Being pack animals, dogs are highly sensitive and intuitive to the family dynamic. They instinctively seek to keep their loved ones close and protect them at all costs, so decisions about end of life care and euthanasia often involve all family members. 

Our dogs are completely dependent on us for their physical, mental and emotional well-being. When they were puppies, we tended to their every need. We cleaned up after them, made sure that they received the best healthcare and we taught them how to get along in the big wide world. Similarly, when our loyal friends grow old and infirm, they need us more than ever to look out for their best interests and ensure they are kept comfortable up until their last moments with us.

When it’s time to say goodbye, Passing Paws offers compassionate and pain-free at home euthanasia services for dogs. Our end-of-life vets will do what they can to ensure you and your beloved dog can share their final moments together in a peaceful, calm environment.

If you choose to, we can also arrange for aftercare options including your dog’s funeral or private cremation service.

Is euthanasia the right option for my dog?

If your dog is very old or has been unwell you may have already had a Quality of Life discussion with your veterinarian. Your vet may have recommended palliative care and hospice options to help keep your pet comfortable during their last weeks and days. Eventually, the time may come when medications and treatments are no longer enough to maintain your dog’s enjoyment in life. 

Although you may experience feelings of doubt—or even guilt—it’s important to remember that euthanasia is an act of kindness to set them free from pain and let them go with dignity.

Dog euthanasia at home vs. vet euthanasia

If you are able to choose the time and the place of your pet’s passing, a home euthanasia affords you the opportunity to say goodbye on your own terms. You might choose the familiar comforts of your home where your dog is surrounded by their favourite people, sights and smells. Alternatively, an outdoor setting that holds fond memories for your dog, such as the beach or a favourite park, can alleviate stress for your pet.

Home euthanasia tends to be more expensive than when carried out at your local vet clinic, however this is frequently becoming the preferred option for many families who wish to say their farewells in a peaceful place of their choosing.
