Pet Euthanasia in Keller, TX

Humane Pet Euthanasia in Keller, TX

We want to take the best care of your pet at every stage of their life. When they enter their twilight years, it’s necessary to think about hospice care and humane pet euthanasia. At VO Vets, we aim to provide you with the information and options you need to make the most compassionate treatment decisions for your pet. Whether that involves therapeutic care to relieve pain or a time to say goodbye, our veterinary team will support you through it all.

VO Vets follows AAHA guidelines for pet end-of-life care. Planning out the end stage of your pet’s life can be challenging and stressful, but we will do all we can to make it as straightforward as possible for you.

Understanding Your Pet’s Quality of Life

Deciding whether or not to choose euthanasia for your pet is difficult. You may wonder if the good days outnumber the bad, or vice versa. If you are having trouble gauging your pet’s quality of life on your own, you can reach out to VO Vets, and we can arrange for a consultation to assess their condition. There are many factors to consider, including:

Your pet’s appetite – Are they still eating and drinking?

Bathroom habits – Does your pet frequently have accidents in the house? Do they struggle to go?

Lifestyle – Is your pet still sociable and interested in playtime? Or do they shy away from family and sleep more often?

Comfort – Does your pet seem to be in pain most of the time, whimpering, groaning, trembling, and/or having trouble getting up?

These are just a few questions to expect, but your veterinarian will take time to thoroughly examine your pet, review their medical history, and discuss any possible treatment options to improve and extend their life. If your pet’s prognosis is poor, humane euthanasia may be recommended as the best option.

Helping You Plan for Pet Euthanasia

We invite you to ask as many questions as you can to understand your pet’s situation, what euthanasia entails, what you might be able to expect during the appointment, and options for aftercare. Our team will be glad to provide you with any educational resources you might like to have to guide and support you during this time.

When it comes time to schedule the euthanasia appointment, we will accommodate your needs as best we can, helping you select the date and time that works for you. You will be allowed as much time with your pet as you need when you come in, and only with your permission will our team move forward with the procedure.

The euthanasia procedure itself is performed to be as pain-free and stress-free as possible for your pet. We also want to ensure you and your family understand everything we are doing and feel at ease knowing your pet is comfortable, relaxed, and surrounded by loved ones.

Aftercare & Cremation

VO Vets partners with Fond Memories for pet aftercare and cremation. We often recommend making aftercare arrangements before the euthanasia appointment, so it’s one less thing you and your family have to worry about after saying goodbye to your pet. If you decide to have ashes or another keepsake returned to you, our team will contact you once the items arrive at our hospital for pickup.
