Coping with Pet Loss
All Creatures is dedicated to making the euthanasia process as stress free and painless as possible for both the pet and the pet’s family. We understand the difficult steps it takes to make the decision to euthanize your pet and we want to help.
At All Creatures, we can have a technician call you to discuss how the appointment will go. We can talk you through each step and answer your questions. We can also make some decisions with you ahead of time. Sometimes, having a plan in place can help calm some of your fears.
Losing a pet can be just as hard as losing a human family member. Below are some helpful links to get you through these tough times.
A great place to start in the decision making process is this handout. It asks you to answer questions on a scale of 0-2 and then lets you know where you rate. The questionaire is a good way to find out if your concerns need immediate attention. UserFiles/QualityLife_D.pdf
