Like you, we wish that our pets could live forever--or at least as long as we do! Unfortunately, pets age very quickly, and before you know it, you find yourself having to make difficult decisions about their future. At Temperance Animal Hospital, we understand how painful it is to see your beloved best friend struggling with age and illness. We will keep you fully informed of your pet's health care options, and offer an honest, educated opinion regarding their prognosis. Furthermore, you can expect our unwavering support and compassion during this time.

End-of-Life Counseling

Our doctors are always willing to pursue additional treatment for your pet if they have the potential to improve. However, if their prognosis is poor and their condition irreversible, we will gently recommend euthanasia as the most humane option.

If your pet is suffering, it is crucial to consider their well-being and know that euthanasia is the kindest thing you can do for them. It is natural to be reluctant, and you may even feel overwhelming guilt about making choices about their end-of-life care. We will not rush you into making a decision, but we will support you at every turn. 

Euthanasia & Cremation

You are welcome to call us at any time to schedule a euthanasia appointment. When you arrive, our team will give you and your pet the privacy and time you need. You can also bring friends and family along to say their goodbyes. We will do everything we can to respect your wishes at this time.

Your doctor will make sure that your pet is as comfortable and peaceful as possible in their final moments. In addition, you can choose to have your pet's ashes returned to you following cremation. Everyone grieves differently, and we want to help you memorialize your pet in the way that you prefer. 

If you have concerns about your pet's health and would like to consult with one of our veterinarians about your pet's end-of-life care, please call us at (734) 847-6751. You do not have to go through this alone.

The entire staff at TAH are so wonderful. Every time I have taken our dogs there we have received amazing care and service. Just recently we had a very frightening emergency with our youngest beagle. I went in hysterically crying and due to the nature of her injury we were there a long time deciding what to do. We were given all the time we needed, never being rushed. I love everyone there!

We took my beautiful, 20 year old cat in today, knowing he would probably have to be euthanized after suffering a stroke. We were heartbroken, of course, but the staff at TAH could not have been more caring and compassionate from the second we walked in the door.
They were sensitive to our pain, and so very respectful and caring with my baby. Thank you to the caring professionals who helped us today.
