As pet owners, we all face the possibility of having to make the heartbreaking decision to put a beloved companion to sleep. This decision often comes after a pet has been diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, such as cancer, or after having lived with a painful, stressful, or debilitating condition, such as osteoarthritis. In the end, we must make this incredibly difficult choice so that our furry friends are not made to suffer needlessly.

The staff at Pender Veterinary Centre will always be available to support you before, during, and after the passing of your pet. We will do everything we can to ease the process so that your final moments with your pet are as peaceful and stress-free as they should be.
