Pet Euthanasia Services at Evergreen Veterinary Clinic:
Sensitive and Compassionate End-of-Life Care

Our pets give us so much love and joy throughout their too-short lives, and the decision to end the suffering of our beloved companion is never an easy one. Pets are more than just animals; they are our best friends and members of the family. Having a pet pass on can be just as devastating as the loss of a human friend or family member. When the time comes for your pet to move on, your Evergreen Veterinary Clinic family in San Jose is here to support you through this difficult time.

Making the Hard Decision

Firstly, understand that you do not have to make the decision on your own. One of our doctors will sit down with you for a one-on-one consultation to discuss your pet’s options. If we both agree that your pet is at the end of their life, we will go ahead with the procedure. We believe that there must always be a just cause for euthanasia, and if we do not feel your pet is at the end, we will talk to you about other options such as managing your pet’s condition. Typically, pets who are overly aggressive, in severe pain and suffering, or at the very end of a ripe old age are candidates for pet euthanasia.

What to Expect from the Procedure

Evergreen Veterinary Clinic offers euthanasia services with the utmost respect and compassion for you, your pet, and the rest of your family. Saying goodbye to a pet is never easy.  For the most relaxing, calm, and peaceful atmosphere for your pet’s euthanasia procedure, we believe it is important for you to understand how it works.

Firstly, we want you and your family to have as much time with them as you need to say goodbye. You will then have the option to either stay in the exam room for their final moments or not. The whole procedure is done through an IV catheter. Your pet will first receive a sedative to put them entirely at ease, and then, when you are ready, we will administer the euthanasia. Your pet feels no pain and the medication works very quickly, usually in a matter of a minute or less.

If you are considering home euthanasia for your pet, we use TheRestfulPaws.com. Please contact them to discuss your options.

Aftercare and Grief Support

After the procedure, one of our receptionists will be available to talk to you about aftercare services including local pet burial options as well as cremation services. We work with LovedPets.com for our aftercare services. Additionally, we make a donation to UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in honor of your pet.

Should you need any assistance with grief support, we'll be glad to provide you with some helpful resources, as well.

Remember, our goal is to make this process as peaceful as possible for you, your pet, and the rest of your family. Please feel free to contact us at any time by calling (409) 238-0690. We will be happy to address any questions you have about our pet euthanasia process.
