Palliative Care and Euthanasia Services



We work closely with you to ensure your pet has the best quality of life. 


We ensure the most compassionate care for you and your pet during these difficult times. We offer cremation services through Paws to Heaven. A dedicated team member will ensure your pet is handled with grace. 

When the time comes, you want your pet’s passing to be as peaceful and comfortable as possible.


Planning the euthanasia of a pet you have loved and who has been part of your family for so many years is undoubtedly one of the most difficult times of your life. Ending or preventing a pet’s suffering is the most important gift a pet owner can bestow. We make every effort to make this difficult time easier for you and your family and to make it peaceful for your faithful friend. For many pet owners, even thinking about their pet’s final days is difficult and emotional. Our pets are a part of our family. It is this strong bond, born from years of loyal companionship that makes this time particularly hard to bear.


We encourage you to talk with our veterinary team about these issues before they become an urgent matter. Find out about your options including cremation and grief counseling, make some key decisions ahead of time and ask us to add this information to your pet’s record. Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and stress for you and your pet.


In the days, weeks, or months leading up to your pet’s final day, you can rely on our veterinarians to provide you with the support and information you need to make informed choices each step of the way.


All of us at Absecon Veterinary Hospital will do our best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.
