Facing the end of your pet's time on this Earth can be an unpredictable emotional experience. 
We have many resources to help you on this journey. 

Oakwood Hills Animal Hospital End of Life Care and Considerations

Euthanasia decisions are unique for each pet and person or people involved.
We offer a variety of opportunities to assist your journey.
Appointments are available at our facility with an attempt made to facilitate this at a quieter time of the day.
House calls can be arranged with advance notice depending upon the availability and scheduling of our doctors.
We offer cremation services.  Cremains will be returned in a simple wood-toned box with an optional name plate or you can provide your own urn.
Other selections some people are interested in include a clay or ink paw print.  Ideally this can be done at home prior to your pet's last visit. See information at the bottom of this page.
Home burials are allowed in most municipalities.  Cremation without return of cremains is also available.
