Is it painful for my pet?
Every effort is taken to make the process as painless and as stress-free as possible for your beloved pet. In most cases, the euthanasia process involves two injections. An initial sedative injection is given, which allows your pet to drift into a pain free, relaxed state. Some dogs and cats experience a brief “sting” at the sedative injection site that lasts for a second or two. Once sedated, the second injection, which is an intravenous overdose of an anaesthetic agent, can be given with your pet being essentially unaware of its administration. This is a rapid, peaceful, painless process, lasting only seconds in duration.
