Pet Euthanasia

We know how difficult it can be to say goodbye to a beloved pet. Our caring and committed staff want to make the process as comfortable as possible for both our patients and their owners. We also understand that sometimes, their health issues can be overwhelming and there is the option to relieve their suffering.

If you feel that it is time to let your pet cross the rainbow bridge, our hospital is open any time of day or night, every day of the year. You are most welcome to come in for a consultation with one of our veterinarians who will guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have. If you are unsure if this option is best for your pet, you may give us a call to discuss your options before you come in. Alternatively, please don’t hesitate to walk-in and speak with one of our team members as well.

At Central Island Veterinary Emergency Hospital, we provide a full range of aftercare options dependent on your needs. They include home burial dependent on local bylaws, communal or private cremation options, and keepsakes to help commemorate your furry family member.
