Pet Euthanasia

At Princess Animal Hospital, we empathize with you. The hardest part of owning a pet is saying goodbye. Our end-of-life services provide your beloved pet with the dignity that they deserve. We also work with a company that provides cremation services. Our team is always willing to help guide you through this difficult time.

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

Euthanasia is essentially an overdose of a powerful drug that causes your pet to fall asleep and the heart to stop beating. It is tough to know when is the right time to make this decision. Our team encourages you to assess your pet’s quality of life and monitor their health by asking yourself a few questions:

  1. Is your pet still eating and drinking?
  2. Are they able to go to the bathroom regularly?
  3. Are they in excessive pain?
  4. Do they want to be involved in your activities?

Our team offers compassion and support when you and your pet need it most. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 613.634.7123.

Dear Pet Parents,

We are happy to announce WE ARE ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS!

Missed Appointment/Cancellation Policy

We know your time is valuable, and ours is too. Out of respect for our staff and our other clients, we require at least 48 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. If you do not confirm your appointment with at least 48 hours notice it will be cancelled. As appointments are in high demand, this allows us the necessary time to rebook the appointment time for someone on our waiting list.

After two missed appointments or cancellations with insufficient notice, we will require pre-payment for any future appointments. This amount will be non-refundable 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment.

Thank you in advance for your patience and kindness.

- Your dedicated team at Princess Animal Hospital
