We often wish our pets could live forever, continuing to bring us joy and companionship.  When they have a terminal illness and their quality of life declines, we are faced with the decision of if and when to help them pass peacefully.  Euthanasia means "good death."  At Richardson Animal Hospital, we offer sedatives to patients before the euthanasia injection to make the experience as peaceful as possible.  We partner with Paws Awhile for burial and cremation services.  If you have any questions about the euthanasia process, please call the office at 330.296.9747 or schedule an appointment to talk with the doctor.

Below are links to help you decide when euthanasia is the right decision and how to cope with the loss of your loved one.  If you would like help coping with your grief, Coleman Professional Services offers a 24/7 hotline and grief and bereavement counseling:  (877)796-3555 

The above links are provided by the Honoring the Bond program at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
