What is pet euthanasia?

Pet euthanasia is a compassionate procedure aimed at providing a painless and peaceful transition for an animal, ultimately putting an end to their suffering. While it is a challenging decision for pet owners to make, euthanasia becomes a choice of selfless kindness when a cherished pet's life is significantly impacted by old age, a terminal illness, or a traumatic injury. It is often regarded as the ultimate gift that a pet parent can give, bringing relief and an end to their beloved companion's pain.

Emergency Appointments

Sometimes pets take a turn for the worse overnight or in a short amount of time, so we do our best to accommodate same day appointments with a few hours notice but we can't guarantee that. If this is a medical emergency and you are in need of assistance please see local resources below.

Dr. Klepper was everything we could have hoped for during this difficult experience. My wife and I are so grateful. It was such a gift to say goodbye to our baby Millie gently and peacefully in our home.

passing of my pet, Robert Brown, went as smoothly, comfortably, and peaceful as could be possible. Thank you for the kind service.

Although I never wanted to have a need for this service, it was fabulous and professional. My great dane with bone cancer weighed 158, took a turn for the worse and we required a quick need. Unfortunately, he passed on his own before the Dr arrived. Dr still took care of him in a quick, professional manner even transferring him for cremation. I highly recommend this company & Dr.

Paw Prints On My Heart

You came into my heart one day, so beautiful and smart,
My dear and sweet companion, I loved you from the start.

And though I knew the time would come
When we would have to part,You'll never be forgotten
You left paw prints on my heart
