The Hardest Choice - When Is It Time To Euthanize Your Dog?

The most difficult choice we have to make as pet owners is figuring out when it is time to say goodbye. Euthanasia is a compassionate gift we can give our animal companions to free them from their suffering caused by long illnesses and painful conditions.

I often receive questions about how owners can know when the “right” time will be. How will they know that they are not making the choice preemptively or waiting too long and causing their pet discomfort? While each case is very unique, there is one method I recommend to my clients to whom I am providing hospice care.

Remember that our pets are here to enjoy life. I know this decision can be a heartbreaking one to make; I hope this formula aids you in this difficult choice.
