End of life care

The decision to have your treasured pet put to sleep may be one of the most difficult choices you have to make. At some point it may become obvious to you following discussions with your vet that your pet’s life is drawing to a close, and it may be necessary to intervene and ease their pain and suffering.

All of the team at Milestone Vets will do their best to help you prepare for these final days with the care, compassion and the sensitivity they require.

In the weeks leading up to your pet’s final day, we encourage you to talk with our vets who can provide you with the support and information you need to make informed choices ahead of time.

Your wishes and decisions will be added to your pet’s record every step of the way.

Generally, we will put pets to sleep at the practice. Where possible we will book you a double appointment, so you have plenty of time to say goodbye. If you would like your pet put to sleep at home, we are happy to pre-arrange a house visit during surgery hours, please talk with a member of our team to arrange this.

Please contact reception if you would like to discuss any of these issues with one of our vets on 01626 331977.

Looking after the memories

We can also provide information on cherished keepsakes including paw impressions and literature about the type of cremation services available.

​Please ask at Reception for more details.
