We want to make your pet’s passing as peaceful as possible for him or her, but also for your family. This starts with a calm peaceful environment. Think of the places your pet likes to spend time in. Ideally, this is a comfortable location for you and your family as well. Your pet may have already chosen a place prior to our arrival. We can accommodate wherever your pet is comfortable, even if it is not one of his or her normal resting spots. As your pet is falling asleep, it is best to have a quiet environment, or you can have some soft music playing.
Some families like to leave a “Do Not Disturb” note on the front door. If there are friends or family who are not able to attend the appointment, you can plan to have them present virtually on a device. A common question is what to do with other pets. In general, it may be helpful to allow them to be present if they want to be unless you feel they will be a distraction. This is a very intimate moment between you and the beloved pet you are losing, and a very energetic pet may disrupt that. If you choose to keep any pets away during the process, we can allow them to visit their housemate after they have passed.
