Exotic Pet Euthanasia

Kindness and compassion for all animals, at home pet euthanasia

Exotic (or ‘pocket pets’) such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and birds are often a child’s first introduction to owning a pet. Children learn to be responsible for their pet’s daily feeding and care and how to treat animals with respect. 

Domestic rabbits live on average from 8-12 years and children often form a strong bond with their bunny friends as they grow up together. It’s understandable then, that the loss of a pocket pet can have a profound impact on the whole family.

Is euthanasia the right option for my pet?

As with cats and dogs, it can be difficult to detect when a pet is experiencing pain or discomfort, however smaller pets are less likely to vocalise or show outwards signs of illness. As your pet ages, you may notice changes in their behaviour such as a lack of appetite, reluctance to be held or touched or perhaps they are sleeping more.

It’s always best to consult with your vet so that you can make the most appropriate choices for your pet’s health and wellbeing. Ultimately, you may decide that euthanasia is the most humane way to end your pet’s suffering.

Home Euthanasia vs. Vet Euthanasia
