Pet End-of-Life Care

When we bring a puppy, kitten, or other pet, into our home, we hope we get to spend many years of our lives with them. Eventually, however, there will come a time when we have to say our goodbyes. At Seneca Animal Hospital, we currently offer in-hospital euthanasia services to allow our clients to say goodbye and express their love in a quiet, private, and dignified manner.

The Difficult Decision of Pet Euthanasia

Knowing when it is time to say goodbye can be one of the most difficult decisions we make as pet owners.  However, there are certain situations when it becomes obvious that euthanasia is the most humane and respectful choice.  Situations include:

  • Your pet has a terminal illness that is compromising its quality of life
  • Your pet is in severe pain due to an illness or injury that can no longer be managed
  • Your pet is no longer eating, drinking, or ambulatory without assistance

We’re Here to Guide and Support You with Compassion and Care

Seeing your beloved companion’s life come to a close is always hard. At Seneca Animal Hospital, we try to make the process as comfortable and supportive as possible for you and your pet. If you are interested in learning more about our in-home euthanasia, please reach out to us for guidance.

What to Expect During In-Hospital Pet Euthanasia?
In-hospital euthanasia at Seneca Animal Hospital is handled with the utmost respect and compassion for both you and your pet. We will attend to you and your pet in a comfortable, private room and give you time to say goodbye. Typically, an IV catheter will be placed in one of your pet’s front limbs to help deliver the necessary drugs as smoothly as possible. After the catheter is placed, sedation medication is given first, followed by the euthanasia drug. With each step, we take careful consideration to allow you and your pet to spend the time together that you both deserve.
What to Expect During In-Home Pet Euthanasia?

**Please note that we are NOT currently offering in-home euthanasia services at this time. We hope to return to offering this service in the near future. In the meantime, for clients that are seeking in-home euthanasia services, we recommend Upstate Pet Euthanasia **

The process of in-home pet euthanasia is the same as what takes place in our clinic, but you will stay in your home. In-home euthanasia can be a good choice if you have a pet that has difficulties with traveling or is especially stressed by going to the vet. Other benefits include

  • You can have as many loved ones present as you want
  • You and your pet will spend the final moments in the comfort of your home
  • You have privacy while grieving the loss of your pet
After Euthanasia

After the euthanasia has been performed, if elected, the pet will pass along to our trusted crematorium and memorial servicer:

Good Shepherd

In addition to providing crematory services, Good Shepherd offer additional memorialization options. These options include:

  • Unique urns (a complimentary rosewood urn is provided for all ash return cremations)
  • Pendant jewelry
  • Keychain keepsakes
  • Cremation stones and art


If at all possible, we encourage you to take time to visit the websites above to learn about ways to memorialize your pet if you are interested in options besides the complimentary urns. We understand in many cases, it may not be possible or may be difficult to think of these options prior to your pet’s passing.
