Putting dog to sleep at home

Caring dog euthanasia

While the time of putting your dog to sleep is often a moment of sadness, many dog owners want the comfort of knowing that their furry family member was comfortable and relaxed during their final moments and are finally at peace and pain free.

Dr Paul Stevens (Vet BVSc Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) specialises in caring euthanasia and when the time comes to putting your dog to sleep he can do so at your own home, so your dog is in the place they know best, surrounded by the people they love. Not only does this allow your dog to be comfortable but it also gives the time and privacy for you and your family to say your final goodbyes.

The process of putting your dog to sleep

Quietus 3 Stage Technique for home pet euthanasiaDr Paul specialises in pet euthanasia because illness and death, while often an uncomfortable subject, are inevitable. Making sure the end as perfect as possible is important, not only for the pets but also for their loving owners.

Dr Paul delivers the gold standard, 3 stage technique which is globally acknowledged as the best method for achieving a calm and anxiety free euthanasia for your dog.

The first stage

A tiny injection is made under the skin which contains a mix of pain-relief and sedatives. Dr Paul will access your dog’s needs and create the perfect mix and dose.

During the 5-10 minutes it takes for your dog to drift off to sleep you can continue to say your final goodbyes.

The second stage

Another small injection is made which your dog will not feel. This injection induces a deep anaesthesia so there is zero knowledge of the last injection.

The third stage

When you are ready, the final injection is made. Your dog is totally asleep prior to this injection and has no knowledge or feeling of anything that is done.
