The 5 Freedoms of Animal Welfare
Our staff understands how much your pet means to you. We’ll guide you along to help you make the best decision for their needs, while taking into consideration the “5 freedoms” of animal welfare:
- Freedom from hunger and thirst
- Freedom from physical and thermal discomfort
- Freedom from pain, injury and disease
- Freedom from fear and distress
- Freedom to express normal behavior
Furthermore, we approach this discussion by not only assessing your pet’s condition, but also by taking into account your personal financial, moral, religious, cultural, physical, mental, and emotional factors.
Helping You Make the Best Choices for Your Pet
Our aim is to allow our clients to make informed choices based on all known options, all while supporting them in their decision to pursue humane euthanasia, further diagnostics, or therapeutic or palliative care. If you choose to euthanize, we will explain the procedure and all possible aftercare options, and provide you with a quiet, private space where you can spend time with your companion.
To further aid our clients and patients when the end-of-life discussion arises, our staff receives continuing education in grief management, pet loss support, bereavement outlets, and compassion fatigue. This enables our team to offer greater support to our community and to our patients in their time of need.
