Our pets give so much to us over the course of their lives. They stick with us through thick and thin, listen to us when we need a pal to talk to (they don’t have much choice!), offer us a warm body to cuddle with, and enrich our lives with their presence. Because of what they give to us, it is really difficult to watch them suffer near the end of their lives, when, due to advancing age and/or illness, their bodies begin to break down.
Sometimes the best we can do for them is to choose euthanasia, when it is clear that their condition will only worsen and their suffering will increase. Pet people typically have two choices when it comes to euthanization – either go to the vet clinic or find a vet who will come to their home. Skip and I are happy to now offer our pet cremation center as another location for euthanasia. We are partnering with MN Pets, a home euthanasia service whose vets do nothing but gentle home euthanasia.
While many folks opt for home euthanasia of their pet, for others that just doesn’t work out for a variety of reasons. With our collaboration with MN Pets, you may call either Pets Remembered Cremation or MN Pets to set up a day and time to bring your pet to our center for the euthanization by one of the MN Pets veterinarians. We will provide a home-like setting for you to say goodbye to your pet, and the cremation will take place immediately following.
We don’t like to think about death, whether it is our own death or one of our family members, including our pet. But death comes to all of us sooner or later, so we might as well make the best plans and arrangements we can to make the best of an unavoidable situation. We are here to help in any way we can.
