Providing Humane Pet Euthanasia in Columbus, OH

Taking care of people and their pets for the duration of their time together is an honor for all of us here at Easton Animal Hospital. When the time comes to discuss your pet’s end-of-life care, we’re here to help and make the process as easy as possible for you both. It’s not easy to think about having to say goodbye to a beloved pet, but it is necessary, for their well-being and yours. We offer humane cat and dog euthanasia to release terminally ill and elderly pets from their suffering and to give their families assurance that their pet is no longer in pain.

Our team is here to help you make the most compassionate and loving choice for your pet, whether that involves palliative care or euthanasia. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your options with a compassionate team member, please call us at (614) 476-0000. We are here for you during this time.

To register for this service in accordance with our new curbside service, we graciously ask that you fill out an online form before your scheduled appointment.

How to Assess Your Pet’s Quality of Life

Quality of life is a very important metric with which to gauge a pet’s health and prognosis. If a dog or cat is suffering most days and unable to function reasonably well, that may be a sign that it’s time to consider euthanasia. On the other hand, if a pet shows signs of improvement in their condition and has a chance to live more comfortably for some time, treatment can be pursued.

Signs of a poor quality of life include:

  • Not eating or drinking
  • Frequent vomiting/diarrhea
  • Incontinence
  • No control over bowels
  • Cannot stand up easily or walk
  • Cries out in pain when touched or held
  • Sleeps all the time
  • Not interested in playing or interacting

What You Can Expect with Pet Euthanasia

During the appointment, our team will give you and your pet all the time and privacy you need before we move forward. And if you have any special requests, feel free to let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

The euthanasia procedure has two steps; first your pet will be gently sedated into a deep sleep, then, when they are comfortable, we will administer the euthanasia. This ensures that they are peaceful and relaxed, and feeling no pain in their last moments.

We offer aftercare options, so if you have plans for your pet’s remains, please make arrangements prior to your pet’s euthanasia appointment. Contact us at (614) 476-0000 for more information.
