      Euthanasia and End of Life Care

Chosing to end your pet's life can be a very difficult decision to make. At Wandermere Animal Hospital we strive to help our clients navigate through this process. Our doctors are more than willing to discuss quality of life and help you reach a decision for your pet's specific situation. We perform our euthanasias as humanely and peacefully as possible. If you so desire, we are happy to allow you and your family to be present for the euthanasia process. If you wish to arrange for an in-home euthanasia we can refer you to one of two very compassionate mobile veterinarians by the name of Dr. Tod Kennedy (509 467-2960) and Dr. Lacey Rasmussen (509 931-0466).

Trying to determine when it's time for euthanasia can be one of the hardest decisions to make.  Sometimes you need an objective way to help you determine if it's time for your pet.  This scoring handout can be helpful in giving you concrete things to monitor to aid in that decision
