Euthanasia and Pet Cremation

Euthanasia and Pet CremationAs much as we love our pets, there will come a time when we will have to say goodbye. We understand that this is a painful and very difficult time for our clients, but it is one that benefits from the same dedicated, compassionate and experienced care of a veterinarian.

End-of-life care is one of the hardest and most important decisions you will make during your pet's life. Even though it is a personal decision, you are not alone in making the best choice for your pet. Town & Country Animal Hospital's compassionate and caring veterinarians will be there for you to discuss options, answer questions, and talk through your concerns.

We also offer information and options about cremations, pet burial, and urns for your pet. For inquiries feel free to e-mail us or give us a call.
