in Indian Head, MD

Our pets are important members of our family, and at Potomac Animal Wellness Services, we treat your four-legged family members with the utmost care and respect through our pet end of life care. Knowing when to say goodbye can be difficult and our team is here to support you through this process by evaluating your pet’s quality of life and helping you make the best possible decision for your pet’s care. If you have any concerns about your pet’s well-being, please contact the PAWS team to make an appointment.

Is it Time to Say Goodbye?

When it comes time to make this decision, we highly recommend consulting your veterinarian. We can help determine if dog euthanasia is the next best step for your companion’s care. When you bring your pet in, your veterinarian will perform a physical examination to evaluate their quality of life. During this exam, we consider the following symptoms and behaviors:

  • Lack of appetite
  • Inability to walk or move without assistance
  • Feeling severe pain
  • Constant vomiting or diarrhea
  • Unusual accidents around the house

Our Dog and Cat Euthanasia Services

When it is time for your pet’s euthanasia appointment, we will review the paperwork and the euthanasia procedure with you. Our team understands this is a difficult time for you, and we strive to ease this process in any way we can. Your pet’s comfort is always our main priority, which is why we will sedate them prior to receiving the injection.

Once your pet is peacefully asleep, we will administer the euthanasia injection. We invite you to stay with your pet for as long as you are comfortable. Whenever you are ready, we can also discuss our available options to memorialize your pet.

Get the best care for your best friend.
