Preparing for Our Visit
A Comfortable Spot
Our visit is all about keeping your pet and family as comfortable as possible. We can be indoors or outside. Feel free to prepare the area with favorite toys, bed, or blanket. Some families like to play music or light candles.
The Ones We Love
All family, friends, children, and pets are welcome to be present during our visit. If you have questions about your specific family circumstance, please let us know so we can help. We do recommend that other pets are able to see their friend after he/she has passed as this helps with the grief remaining pets can experience with this loss. Also, please know that Dr.Rebecca is open to your family's spiritual practices and welcomes the opportunity to participate.
A Gentle Transition
Throughout this time, your companion never has to leave your side. Gentle sedation is customized to your pet’s individual needs. If your pet is still eating, a tasty treat will provide a distraction while receiving an injection of sedation. Over 10-15 min, your pet will relax into a comfortable plane of anesthesia. When your pet is fully sedated and family is prepared, Dr.Rebecca will administer medication to help your pet pass away.
After your pet has passed, please take whatever time and space you need. If Dr. Rebecca is helping with cremation arrangements, a comfy blanket and basket/cot is provided to transport your loved one for aftercare. For pets over 50lbs, representatives from HeavenLee Companion (our cremation provider) will come to your home to provide assistance in this process.
