End of life care

This is one of the most difficult decisions you could ever make. To assist in this, we come to your home and provide a quality of life scale assessment based on your pets’ health and your family’s concerns.

The score assesses your pet’s social functions, natural functions, mental health and physical health. We also look at your family concerns regarding your pet and assist you to provide a support system for when the time comes to say goodbye.

By using this scoring system, it provides a useful guide for monitoring quality of life and a clear indication when it may be time to say goodbye.

When your pet is coming to the end of their life we provide care to make them feel as comfortable as possible. A home euthanasia service is then available when the time to put them to sleep comes. We carry out euthanasia in the place you and your pet feel is most comfortable.  Your pet will be calm and relaxed throughout the procedure, and not aware of what’s going on.

If you are thinking your pet is coming to the end of their life we visit your home to discuss your preferences and what will happen on the day. When the time comes, your pet will have a dignified and peaceful departure.

We have adapted our own technique so your pet is as calm as possible throughout us being there. We normally a injectable sedative which your pet will not feel. This makes your pet feel sleepy and happy.

When they are relaxed we give the final injection

Competent & friendly vet, professional, competitively priced & convenient for myself. I can highly recommend, especially if you don’t have transport or your pet doesn’t like the usual veterinary setting. 5 star! ⭐️

A very professional and friendly service, putting myself and my multi-cat household at ease. Having a house visit for 5 cats is stress free, time and energy saving for the cats and me... I am so glad I found John Rosie!
