Everyone from the Gentle Journey team will tell you that the discussion of when to say goodbye is the most painful but most important conversation we can have with the families we work with. Speaking about death takes empathy, openness, non-judgment, and understanding. We consider it a privilege to have these difficult conversations with our clients leading up to their pet's euthanasia at home.
When it is time to say goodbye, we try to create an experience so that it is the best that the last day can be, at home snuggling on the couch, in a loved one’s lap, or outdoors if they prefer. Gentle Journey allows us to help families let their pets move on with dignity, grace, and peace to a place that holds no tears, only beautiful memories.
Veterinary hospice for pets is a family-focused and medically supervised service committed to upholding the comfort and quality of life for terminally ill or senior pets until a natural death occurs or the family elects euthanasia. Our veterinary hospice care offers a unique approach to meeting the needs of your pet at the end of their life. Our goal is to manage their symptoms and maintain their happiness for as long as possible.
The euthanasia process begins with our veterinarian carefully assessing your pet's condition, ensuring that the planned goodbye is administered appropriately to meet the unique needs of both you and your beloved companion. When the doctor arrives, she will reassure you that you are making the right decision for your pet while helping you and your pet in your time of need.
At Gentle Journey, we believe in empowering you to make decisions regarding every aspect of your pet's transition from life to death. We can guide you through a range of aftercare options, helping you to choose the most meaningful path for you to remember your pet.
