All Creatures Animal Care Center offers hospice and euthansia services to pet owners in Madison, Jackson, Flora, Canton, Mississippi and the surrounding communities. Having a terminally ill pet is never easy. When all treatment options have been exhausted, our goal at All Creatures Animal Care Center is to provide hospice care that focuses on keeping your pet pain-free, improving the quality of their life, and giving the family time with their beloved pet. Our doctors and technicians will show you the proper medicine dosage and routines, as well as how to keep your pet clean and comfortable while undergoing hospice care. This time in your pet’s life can last anywhere from several weeks to several months. This is a period in your relationship where your bond can be strengthened with your pet and you have an opportunity to come to terms with their passing.
Even though death is a part of life, no one looks forward to saying goodbye to a cherished member of the family, even when that family member has four legs, a wagging or swishing tail, and possibly a cold, wet nose. Our sympathetic doctors help animals experience terminal illness and the dying process with dignity. Although it is an extremely difficult time, we do everything we can to make the process of euthanasia as peaceful as can be and give you time to say goodbye. The euthanasia process begins with a thorough explanation of what will happen before, during, and after your pet falls asleep. Your pet will be given medication that will stop their breathing and then their heart. It is quick and peaceful. Our staff will be there to help you throughout the procedure and will answer any questions with sympathy and compassion. If you feel your pet would benefit from end-of-life care, please call All Creatures Animal Care Center for an examination.
Following euthanasia, you have the option of taking the remains with you for burial, or having your pet cremated. If you elect the cremation option, you can choose for the ashes to be returned to you in a standard or custom urn.
