Euthanasia Appointment Overview

Euthanasia Appointment Overview

Dr. Karie, along with an assistant, will travel to your home (serving Oak Brook and other neighboring southwest Chicago suburbs), so you and your pet can remain in a peaceful, comfortable and private environment. All of your love and focus can be directed towards your furry family member during this emotional time. The entire appointment is typically 1 hour long, which gives her the opportunity to work at a relaxed pace without rushing through any part of the process. 

Dr. Karie will begin the appointment by providing an overview of the euthanasia procedure. She takes as much time as you want to discuss any of your questions or concerns. The entire process is individually tailored towards your preferences, interest level and comfort.

Once you are ready for the procedure to begin, your pet will receive a sedative under the skin that consists of a pain-reliever mixed with a heavy sedative to help them feel calm and comfortable. As the sedative takes effect, usually within a few minutes, you can typically notice your pet’s pain slip away as they continue to relax.

Once you and your pet are relaxed and at peace, you’ll have as much time as desired to share one last memory together. After receiving your permission to proceed, Dr. Karie then administers a second injection with an overdose of anesthesia that will typically make your pet go to sleep within 60 seconds.

Lastly, a third injection of angel juice is administered that first effects their brain and respiratory center. This rapidly stops their breathing before stopping their heart and giving them their angel wings.

The entire process is very peaceful for your beloved family member. After your pet has passed, you can continue to spend as much time with them as needed. As a memorial keepsake, we offer a clay paw print for you to keep after your final goodbye, along with a personalized glass jar containing a lock of your pet’s hair – free of charge. If cremation is elected, we transport your pet out of the home in a custom carrier lined with fresh rose petals and can include their favorite toy or blanket.
