End of Life Care
We understand that dealing with the death of a pet is a heart-breaking time and arranging for an appointment for euthanasia can be especially difficult. Our team has lots of experience with this and we have often been through this ourselves with our own pets. We are here to help and support you through this difficult process. If you have any questions or particular requests then please contact the surgery and we would be happy to discuss.
We have a close relationship with an independent family owned pet crematorium to ensure that
your pet is carefully and respectfully put to rest. We are able to arrange individual animal
cremations where their ashes are returned with a choice of caskets, urns or scatter tubes. They
also offer a standard cremation service where the ashes are not returned. The crematorium also
have a memorial garden that you can visit and are available for direct enquires via their website petsinpeace.co.uk
Pet burials are normally permitted on your own property or in a pet cemetery. It is against the law to bury an animal outside these places without permission. If you decide to bury your pet in your garden, it is important to dig a deep hold (1.25m minimum), avoiding cables and watercourses.
