Saying goodbye is always hard, and it can be especially difficult when we are faced with making that decision. At Alouette Animal Hospital, our goal is to support you and your family through this important time. We offer a comfort room so the family can feel more at home and can take the time they need for their final visit.
When should I consider pet euthanasia?
When you feel like the quality of life for your animal is not to the standards that it has been prior.
What is the process for cat euthanasia?
The euthanasia drug is administered through an intravenous. Your cat may be given a sedative to help to remain calm, and the entire procedure is handled with the utmost respect.
Do you do house calls?
Can I stay with my cat during euthanasia?
Yes, you can be present with your cat during the euthanasia procedure. If you are uncomfortable being present, we can be present and supportive for your cat in their final moments.
What is the cost of pet euthanasia?
Kindly give us a call and a member of our team will be able to provide you with details.
Does your hospital provide bereavement counseling?
Our hospital does not provide this service, but we can refer you to someone who does bereavement counselling.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
