When you are ready, the doctor will administer the injection of the Euthanasia solution which results in a rapid and painless overdose of anaesthetic.
Usually within seconds after the solution is injected, the pet will take a slightly deeper breath, then grow weak and finally lapse into what looks like a deep sleep.
The pet, although completely unconscious, may continue to take a few more breaths, may twitch or gasp. These effects are common. The animal’s eyes also usually remain open.On occasion, when the muscles relax, the bowels and/or bladder may void.
If you would like, a hair lock can be collected for you as a keepsake.
As pet lovers and owners we understand how devastating it is when we have to say goodbye.
