At Babcock Hills we understand how difficult it can be to make the decision to have your beloved put to sleep. We do our best to make the procedure as smooth as possible from the time you make the appointment through saying your last goodbye. Many pet owners have questions and listed below are some of those that are commonly asked:
How do I know if it’s time?
Is an appointment necessary?
What happens in the appointment prior to the final procedure?
Should my child/children be present?
Can other pets in the household grieve? How can I tell?
Why do you place an IV catheter?
What is the drug given?
What happens once the injection is given?
Will my pet feel any pain?
Will they close their eyes?
How much does it cost?
What is a clay paw and how much is it?
What if my pet passes at home?
What crematory service do you use?
How long until my pets ashes are back?
What are the options on what to do with my pets’ remains? What are the costs of these?
