When the time comes I can provide Euthanasia (put to sleep) in your home, car, garden or at the crematorium.
Initially I will provide a sedative injection under the skin, like a vaccination injection, so that your pet drifts off to sleep calmly over 10-15 minutes.
They can fall asleep on your knee, on thier bed, on your bed or a sofa. As long as there is sufficient light available it is entirely up to you where you feel your pet is happiest.
The final injection is then administered once they are fully asleep.
Within a few minutes your animal will pass away.
You can be with them throughout the procedure or can leave the room at any time you wish. Every animal is different and I will discuss with you at the time of booking what is best for you and your pet.
You are then able to spend as much time with them once they are gone as you need and I can stay with you or wait outside.
You have the choice of either home burial, burial at a pet cemetery or cremation. I am able to provide a full after care service for your pet.
In the case of cremation, I can return your pets ashes to your home or you can collect them from the crematorium within a week.
Many people like to bury their animal in their garden and I can advise you on requirements for this. I have an advice sheet that I can provide you detailing the requirements and practicalities of home burial.
When you are ready I can take your pet directly to the crematorium for you after they have passed. Alternatively you can make your own arrangements with a crematorium of your choice (see list below) I work with a local pet crematorium based in Rotherham, Old Flatts Farm. It is an independent crematorium who provide a very caring and compassionate service.
Several pets are cremated together and ashes are scattered in the fields surrounding the crematorium.
Your pet is cremated on their own and ashes are returned to you. These are returned to you in either a scatter tube or bamboo scatter pouch. There is a large variety of other ways that ashes can be returned to you if preferred.
