Pet euthanasia, Geelong

Pets are such an important part of our lives and our families, so it’s understandable that parting with them is particularly hard. At Geelong’s Bellarine Veterinary Practice, our veterinarians, vet nurses and support staff are, like you, pet owners and animal lovers, so we understand the decision to euthanise is an extremely tough one. That’s why we feel it’s important to talk about cat and dog euthanasia, to make sure you understand the decision your are making and what will happen. Our veterinarians and vet nurses are able to offer advice to support and guide what is an extremely tough and painful decision. We also offer in-clinic or home visits, and quite understand if you choose to be present, or opt to have our staff comfort your pet. Dog and cat euthanasia is never easy, so please talk to us about your decision. We’re here to help.
Bellarine Veterinary Practice can also help with pet’s burial, depending on whether you wish to opt for burial or cremation. We can arrange pet cremations and have your pet’s ashes returned in a receptacle of your choice.
We can also refer you to professional counselling services if you feel you need to talk more about your pet’s life and death.
There’s also a website, Our Wonderful Pets, which offers support and advice for those dealing with the death of a pet. The website, created by television veterinarian Dr Katrina Warren after her dog, Toby the Wonder Dog, and cat, Milly, died. The site deals with palliative care, talking with children and grief. The Bellarine Veterinary Practice staff hope you find the website useful and comforting.
Pet euthanasia is never an easy decision to make, but the compassionate, understanding team at Geelong’s Bellarine Veterinary Practice are here to make the process that little bit easier for you.
