Quality of Life Evaluation

Sometimes it is difficult to know just how much quality is present in our pet’s day to day routine, especially when there is chronic or age related disease that is slowly progressive. Objective parameters do exist to help determine overall quality of life. If you’re unsure and struggling with the decision of whether or not it’s time to say goodbye, Dr. Kirt can evaluate your pet and make appropriate recommendations with compassion.

End of Life Consultation

You know the time is drawing near when you will be faced with the loss of your beloved pet. Perhaps you have never been faced with the death of a pet, or have never witnessed the process of euthanasia. Maybe you have never had to make the decision to let a pet go. People can struggle profoundly with all sorts of emotions and questions surrounding the end of a pet’s life, even if they have had to cope with it before. If this is the case, Dr. Kirt would love to schedule a visit with you and your pet to help alleviate any fears or concerns. This can also be scheduled in conjunction with a Quality of Life Evaluation.

Peaceful Euthanasia

When there is no longer quality of life and the best option is to say goodbye, Dr. Kirt will come to your pet to provide peaceful euthanasia. This life ending procedure can take place wherever your pet is most comfortable; on the couch, in the backyard or at a favorite spot in nature. You may remain with your pet during every step of this process but you are not required to do so if this is not comfortable for you.

Transport of Pet Remains

After your pet is gone it is difficult to be faced with the task of transporting his or her remains for appropriate disposal. If you will not be burying your pet’s body at home his or her remains must be taken elsewhere for cremation or burial. Home At Last will transport your pet’s remains to a facility of your choice. This may include transport to your regular veterinarian for cremation arrangements. Size and weight restrictions may apply depending on assistance available for lifting.

Aftercare

Dr. Kirt recommends The Pet Cemetery and Crematory of Tucson for your pet’s aftercare services.
