Our mobile veterinarian near San Diego offers in-office and in-home compassionate pet euthanasia.
Euthanasia is something most people would rather not think about, unfortunately, pets become old and ill, and when they appear to be suffering, sometimes pet euthanasia is the most caring and compassionate thing a pet owner can do for their pet.

At-Home Pet Euthanasia
Once we arrive at your home, you will have the option of choosing how involved you wish to be in your pet’s final moments. If you wish to stay with your beloved dog or cat throughout their final moments, our team will ensure that both you and your beloved pet are in a comfortable position to say your goodbyes and hold your pet while he or she passes.
During the procedure, your veterinarian will give your pet a sedative to put them to sleep then inject the medications that help your pet pass peacefully. Once the medication has been administered and your pet has passed peacefully, you will be given time to grieve.
When you and your family members are ready, your veterinarian can remove your pet from your home, or we can help you find a place to have your pet cremated in San Diego.
