Pet Euthanasia

At Brooker Ridge Animal Hospital in the Newmarket Aurora area, our veterinarians provide compassionate euthanasia services for dogs, cats, rabbits, rats, hamsters, ferrets, and birds. Our dedicated vet and staff understand the difficulty of saying goodbye to a beloved pet, which is why we offer house call veterinary services for in-home euthanasia, catering to pets who may experience stress when visiting an animal clinic.

One of the reasons for euthanizing a pet is when they can no longer maintain a good quality of life, such as in cases of aging or terminal illness. Brooker Ridge veterinarian in the Newmarket Aurora area takes the time to explain the euthanasia procedure thoroughly and addresses all questions and concerns regarding the pet’s condition. We strive to ensure a peaceful and dignified farewell for your cherished companion. We do humane dog and cat euthanasia in-clinic, in-home or outside in the backyard if possible when needed.
