Home Pet Euthanasia
Thinking the time has come for your pet to be euthanised or “Put to Sleep”?
At this difficult time, being at home in a familiar and stress free-environment is something that you and your pet will really appreciate.
Eltham Veterinary Practice offers home euthanasia to the local community as our preferred method of putting your pet to sleep. Being at home minimises the stress on your pet as they’re in a familiar environment rather than a clinical veterinary practice situation. It will also provide peace and privacy for your family.
The latest medications allow for Euthanasia to be a slower and calmer experience, aiming to provide a peaceful and dignified death. The use of gentle sedation and calming agents allows your pet to gradually fall into a deepening sleep prior to the final anaesthetic overdose.
We support and reassure you throughout the process to minimize any discomfort you may feel and are happy to include children and other pets.
It is important to consider aftercare arrangements for your pet as well. We provide cremation options through a highly ethical external provider.
After hours and travel fees may apply, please ring us for more information or to book a home visit.
Dr. Eden Clark
Eden is a Diamond Creek girl who knows and loves the Eltham area. Eden desired to become a vet from a very young age and spent much of her childhood caring for wildlife, including housing bees overnight in homemade enclosures and feeding them sugar syrup until they were recuperated! It was her strong compassion that drove her desire to become a veterinarian.
After 6 years of study, Eden graduated from the University of Melbourne with First Class Honours in the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. She has been lucky enough to spend the last 3 months travelling abroad through Central and South America with her partner before joining our team.
