Compassionate End-of-Life Care

at Absecon Veterinary Hospital

After a lifetime of experience working with animals, we understand how important the relationship between pet and owner can be. One of the most difficult parts of pet ownership is having to say goodbye.
When difficult choices have to be made regarding the life of a pet, the veterinarians of Absecon Veterinary Hospital remain committed to helping owners explore all the options available. Many factors are taken into thoughtful consideration whenever the quality of life of an ailing animal companion must be evaluated.
Above all, we think of our clients and their pets as a part of our family. We’ll be there to hold your hand every step of the way, no matter how difficult the situation may be.

Pet Euthanasia

Just in case the decision to euthanize should ever become a reality for you and your family, we feel it is important to assure you that this is a very peaceful, painless process. Our veterinarians and staff take the time to sit down with you, letting you know just what do expect. It is truly our priority to make sure that you, as an owner, remain comfortable and informed at all times.

Pet Loss & Grief Support

Losing a pet is never easy, and it is actually very normal to feel just as though any other relative or family member has passed. Our furry and feathered friends have a way of burrowing into our hearts, and the bond we share can be just as strong as that created between human family members and friends.

During the difficult times, you may find some of the following resources helpful:

  • Pet loss library—This is a collection of articles written by grief professionals. Articles and stories from other owners who have experienced loss are also included.
  • Pet memorials—This is a wonderful way to create an online tribute to your special pet. We encourage you to share pictures, videos, and stories about your beloved family member.
As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out and contact us if you’d like to learn more about pet loss, support, and client services at Absecon Veterinary Hospital.
