Euthanasia for Pets
Some pets die of old age in the comfort of their home, but many pets can get seriously ill or injured, which diminishes the quality of their life. When this happens, it’s not always easy to know how to tell if it’s time to discuss euthanasia. You don’t want your pet to suffer, but since they can’t talk to you, it can be difficult to know what to do. At Mercy Animal Hospital in Edmonton, our team of veterinarians and vet techs are here to provide the information, support, and advice you need to make the right decision.
