End of Life Care

APPOINTMENT

Our team is here for you throughout every life stage.

Pets are members of our families and having to say goodbye can be one of the hardest things a loving family has to do.

Should you experience a time when you are making the difficult decisions about end-of-life-care for your pet, please know that the team at Paws of Pleasanton Animal Hospital are here to help you through this process.

Being animal lovers and owners ourselves, we understand how hard it is to weigh the condition of your pet and his or her quality of life. We will take the time to discuss with you the physical and emotional factors involved in making end-of-life decisions and will give you the time you need to consider your pet’s unique situation.

If you decide that euthanasia is necessary, we will provide a quiet and comfortable place and will make the process as peaceful and painless as possible. Additionally, we can recommend mobile vets in our area who can perform in-home euthanasia services.

Hydrolysis

We work with Animal Memorial Service to utilize hydrolysis, which is a green, natural, water-based cremation.

This process, also called aquamation or bio-cremation, uses 90% fewer fossil fuels to achieve the same result as traditional incineration cremation. They were the first pet cremation facility in Northern California to use this method and over the last 4 years have reduced their CO2 emissions by 3.8 million pounds. They still, however, have our traditional incineration retorts and if requested by the client or hospital we can use them to complete a pet’s cremation.

Animal Memorial Service has developed a process whereby they can take a digital print of clients’ pets paw and store it in their database. This allows clients to order a variety of memorial products from their website that include their pet’s paw, as well as the ability to store the pet’s paw for any future needs.
