When It’s Time To Say That Last Goodbye….

In-home euthanasia is the last and final gift you can give your pet. We believe that every pet deserves a peaceful passing in a loving and safe environment. There is no better place than the warmth and familiar surroundings of their own home. Not only is it less stressful on the pet, it but also allows you as the pet parent to have the privacy you need. For this reason, we make every effort to take time and explain the process to you and your family and to create a quiet and unrushed experience.

If you are experiencing the decision to euthanize your pet and have questions, please feel free to call us at 623-738-4890.


The Process

Peaceful Passing makes every effort to prepare you and your loved ones for the passing of a pet. While the decision to euthanize a pet may be the most difficult decision to make, it is our hope that we can make the process as peaceful as possible.

On our arrival, we will introduce ourselves and quietly enter your home or back yard. We ask that you find a place in your home or backyard that you, your family and pet are most comfortable.

At this time our doctor will assess your pet for quality of life and answer all your questions concerning the process of euthanasia, or the possibility of medical hospice treatment, if appropriate.

If the doctor and your family have come to agree that it is indeed time to humanely euthanize your pet, we will take all the time necessary to answer your questions prior to euthanasia. However, you can expect that the doctor will give your pet a strong injectable sedative to help ease anxiousness and awareness of pain prior to the euthanasia. Your pet will essentially feel like he/she is falling asleep. When the doctor feels that your pet is ready and no longer aware of pain, the doctor will follow with a second injection (a large dose of anesthesia) which will stop respiration and heartbeat.

Once the doctor has confirmed that your pet has crossed the rainbow bridge, our doctor and staff will give you and your family a few moments of privacy. We will then return with a blanket and gurney to gently transfer your pet to our vehicle for cremation.

We have created links for the necessary paperwork. Some clients find it easier to fill out these forms prior to our visit. If you would like to make payment prior to our arrival, just let our receptionist know when making the appointment.

Before we leave, we will confirm your wishes in regards to cremation, ashes returned and your choice in selected urn or package, if applicable.
