End of Life Care
Saying goodbye to a beloved member of your family can be one of the hardest decisions we as pet owners can have to make. At Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists, we are here to comfort and support you every step of the way. Our compassionate veterinary professionals will go through every option available and give you and your family as much time as you need to make the best decision for you.
We offer end-of-life services 24/7 in both our Buzzards Bay and Dennis locations. Although no appointment is necessary, if you can, please call ahead so that our team can be ready and waiting for you when you arrive. Calling ahead is also helpful if your pet is having a difficult time walking and you will need help getting them out of your car. Unfortunately, we do not provide house-call euthanasias at this time.
Our hospital is equipped with a comfort room, which is decorated to feel more home-like and calming for you and your pet. You are welcome to spend as much or little time as you need with your pet before and after euthanasia. In our Buzzards Bay hospital, this room also offers an alternate exit to our building, so when you’re ready, you won’t need to walk through our lobby to leave the hospital.
If you’d like to bring your pet into CCVS for end-of-life services, please fill out our new client form and either email it to us ahead of time or bring it with you.
