Max was one of my first home euthanasias 7 years ago that I will never forget:
He was laying down in his favorite spot on the farm, surrounded by his family. Even before I gave him any medication, I could tell he was very much relaxed and at peace. He passed gracefully, and his family was so relieved that he went with dignity and love.
Losing a pet is excruciatingly hard and is always filled with sorrow.
However, on that day, I saw euthanasia in a different light: it could be both sad yet beautiful.
Tears of his family represented the years of stories and moments Max gave them.
His last resting place represented his ultimate comfort zone, where he was most himself.
His graceful passing represented the honor and respect he deserved as a beloved companion.
His family's sorrow represented the strength in the human animal bond.
The way we love our pets is beautiful and the way we say goodbye is meaningful.
This is why we are honored to come along side pet owners during this emotional time. We share in your sorrow and honor the beauty of your bond by providing a dignified and graceful passing for each pet.
