Pet Euthanasia at Home in Barnsley

Allowing your pet to pass peacefully and pain-free home is the most dignified goodbye you can offer them. Our home euthanasia and end of life care service in Barnsley allows you to do just that.

As a mobile vet in Barnsley and a pet owner myself, I understand just how distressing and confusing this time can be. That is why I created Calm Paws, to remove the need for the traditional vets visit and allow your pet the home farewell it deserves.

As a seasoned vet that has completed the Euthanasia Master Program, my commitment to euthanasia best practices is second to none and I can confidently say your beloved pet is in safe and caring hands.

Book an End-of-life Care Consultation for your pet

If you think that your pet might be close to their end of life, booking an end-of-life consultation as early as possible is the right thing to do. During this consultation, I can give you the option to carry out the euthanasian there and then, book a further appointment to give you more time with your pet or try a different treatment option. I will only ever offer honest and expert advice with the animals’ best interests in mind to help with your decision making and never persuade you to do something you don’t want to do.

A typical end of life care consultation includes:

  • Looking at your pet’s condition, symptoms, medication and care plan
  • A gentle physical examination
  • A quality-of-life assessment
  • My honest expert opinion on ‘the right time’ for your pet
  • A plan to keep your pet as pain free as possible
  • Advice on what to do in an emergency after the consultation

What to expect with Home Euthanasia?

Home euthanasia promises a pain-free and stress-free goodbye in the comfort of your own home, an environment that your pet will be most comfortable in. I don’t have set working hours – we’ll arrange an appointment to suit you.

A typical home euthanasia will include:

  • My arrival at an arranged time where I will greet the pet and the family
  • I will discuss the euthanasia process in full and assess if your pet requires a consultation beforehand (if one has not been done by me recently). If your pet is in crisis or an emergency situation, their welfare takes priority
  • I will obtain your consent for the euthanasia of your pet
  • Your pet will be sedated which can take between 5 and 20 minutes to work
  • I will euthanise your pet in your chosen special place when you and your family are ready. This is a barbiturate which is usually a yellow or blue injection, given into the leg and works as an overdose of an aesthetic and is painless and works quickly. Usually only taking a few minutes.
  • I can assist with after-care arrangements or guide you on handling this yourselves

You can feed your dog normally beforehand if they are tolerating food. Children can be present – this is at your discretion.

Cat Euthanasia at home

I care for many cats throughout Barnsley with a natural part of this care extending to their end-of-life. Cats more so than dogs can be distressing to take to the vets, it’s all stress both you and your cat don’t need especially if you believe they may be at the end of their life. If you are considering home euthanasia for your cat in Barnsley please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
