Pet Euthanasia in Staten Island, NY

At Dongan Hills Veterinary Practice, we are privileged to be able to care for pets throughout their whole lifetime. Nothing is more special than the human-animal bonds we are able to share in and support over the years. And like all very good things, we know that a pet’s life will eventually come to an end, but that end does not have to be stressful or uncomfortable.

Our veterinary team in Staten Island, NY is dedicated to helping dogs and cats pass on with dignity, and in the comfort of their home with their loved ones by their side.

We are honored to offer at-home pet euthanasia services in Staten Island to give pets and their families a peaceful transition for their pets. Please call our office directly at (718) 987-7777 to make arrangements for a doctor to assist with at- home euthanasia.

Is It Time?
Assessing Your Pet’s Quality of Life

We are pet owners ourselves, and we know how hard it can be to think clearly when we suspect the end is near. Assessing your pet’s quality of life objectively is challenging, but it is also extremely important. Knowing their quality of life allows you and our team to decide on the best course of action for your pet.

As veterinary professionals, we prioritize your pet’s well-being. If their quality of life is poor, they could be suffering needlessly. If their quality of life is middling with the potential to be improved, we can pursue a treatment plan to help them.

Here are some of the key quality of life indicators you should look for to see where your pet stands:

  • Is your pet still showing interest in food, and eating and drinking normally?
  • Are they able to eliminate outside or in their litter box as they normally do, or are they having frequent accidents in the house/outside the box?
  • Is your pet able to stand up, walk, and lie down with relative ease? Or do they struggle greatly and seem to be in pain?
  • Does your pet cry out in pain when touched or held, or do they seem comfortable?
  • Does your pet still socialize with you and your family, or do they spend more time hiding/sleeping?
