Caring and Compassionate Pet Euthanasia
It can be difficult for pet owners to determine when it’s time to say goodbye to their beloved pets, especially if your pet has good days and bad days. If you are unsure as to whether it’s time to say goodbye, our veterinarians can evaluate your pet’s health and answer your questions in order to help you make a decision.
In-Office Pet Euthanasia
Many pet owners choose in-office pet euthanasia. Once you arrive in our office, 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 escort you to a private room where you can say your goodbyes. Due to COVID, we are restricting the number of family members in the room to one person.
Private Cremation Services
We partner with Koefran to provide private cremation services for owners who wish to keep their pet's cremains. Koefran uses an identification tag that is filled out by Blue Cross Pet Hospital. This tag stays with your pet until your pet is cremated. During the actual cremation the identification tag is removed and attached to a clipboard on the cremation unit. After the ashes are carefully gathered, the identification tag goes back with the cremains and is transferred to the boxing room where a memorial card with your pet’s identification number replaces the original identification tag. Each pet is individually cremated and placed in a finished cedar pet urn. You also have the option of choosing a different urn along with optional engraving. Your pet's cremains will be hand-delivered to our facility and we will contact you directly as soon as your pet's cremains arrive, within approximately 3-4 weeks.
Group Cremation Services
This option is available for those who do not wish to keep the cremains of their pet. Koefran scatters cremated remains on private property in the Sacramento Valley Delta or the Sierra Nevada Foothills.
