Very often you take your sick pet to the clinic

Very often you take your sick pet to the clinic in an exam room for half an hour and they euthanize the pet and then you go home. It’s much more peaceful and comfortable for the pet to be in their own home surrounded by the people they love and in a space they’re familiar with. Clair Place Mobile Veterinary Services provides at-home euthanasia and hospice care for pets. To her knowledge, it is the first service of its kind in Canada. Her service offers the chance to play music, share something about their pets and then light a candle to honour their passing. Afterwards, owners will have access to a telephone support line and a social worker.
