Hospice/Euthanasia

St. Francis Hospital for Animals offers hospice and euthanasia services to pet owners in greater Charlotte and the surrounding areas. We perform these services with the tenderness, and expert care that you would expect for your cherished animal companion. We have been providing compassionate care through all phases of your pet’s life, and we will continue the same kind, understanding care when the end of life draws near.

Having a terminally ill pet is never easy. When all treatment options have been exhausted, our goal at St. Francis Hospital for Animals is to provide hospice care that focuses on improving the quality of life, making the patient comfortable and pain free while giving the family time with their beloved pet before saying goodbye.

Our sympathetic doctors help animals experience terminal illness and the dying process with dignity. While it is never easy to say goodbye to your faithful companion, we do everything we can to make the process of euthanasia as peaceful as can be. Our veterinarians have hand-chosen medications that are painless and induce pets to drift off into a peaceful and permanent sleep.

To help you preserve the memory of your steadfast friend, St. Francis Hospital for Animals offers a memorial keepsake. We can make a cast of your pet’s paw print that you will be able to have with you always. Please ask about this service if you are interested.

Our hospice/euthanasia services are conducted with respect, compassion, and care. Before you struggle through one more day with a sick, elderly, or terminally ill pet that is suffering, call us at St. Francis Hospital for Animals to learn how we can help you through this difficult time. Our doctors will make house calls for these services by appointment and upon request.
