Dog Euthanasia

Euthanasia is never an easy decision to make. The entire staff at Briarwood helps to provide a comforting atmosphere for your pet’s last day, giving them the dignity, they deserve. You have the option to stay with your pet during their last moments, or not, and that is an entirely personal decision that we can help you with. We partner with Gateway Pet Memorial services to offer various cremation services and numerous memorial products to honour your pet.

What is pet euthanasia and how do I know when it’s the right time?


The decision to euthanize is never an easy one, but it is often times in the best interest of our pets. Our veterinarians feel comfortable having “end of life” discussions so that you feel you have considered all options and made the right choice.

Can I say goodbye to my pet in the comfort of our home?


Unfortunately, we do not have the licensing for house calls, but we make every effort to ensure the process is as smooth and peaceful as possible in clinic. If coming to the clinic isn’t an option, please call us and we will do our best to direct you to a veterinarian that can provide that service.

What drug is used?


During the decision-making process, we can certainly discuss the medications we use and how they work.

What’s the cost of euthanasia?


To enquire about the cost of euthanasia for your pet, although it isn’t easy, please call us and we will let you know the costs involved.

Does the clinic also provide bereavement counselling?


We are more than willing to follow up with any concerns or questions you may have after the loss of your pet. This includes offering you contact information for support services.
