The choice of where the euthanasia is carried out is entirely personal. Most people make the decision to bring their pet into the vet surgery. A longer appointment time will be given for you so you do not feel rushed, and we will try to make your appointment towards the end of the surgery, again so there is no pressure from other patients coming in.
Other people make the choice to ask the vet to come out to put their pet to sleep in their own home. Some animals can feel stressed coming into the surgery, or the owner is unable to bring them to the surgery for many reasons. However, this is a more expensive option, and we may not have a vet available to come out to you immediately.
You also have a choice about whether you would like to stay with your pet or not. This is a very personal decision, and some people find it too difficult or distressing to stay, while others prefer to be with their pet during euthanasia. Again, it is entirely your decision.
