Our Services

In-Home Euthanasia

We know that the decision to farewell a friend is not one that any pet owner makes lightly.

At Sunset Vets, we believe that being at home for this moment is important and we strive to make this experience gentle for both you and your pet.

Our compassionate care team will help you understand all your options, guide you through your choices and are here to support you.

Palliative Care

Much like in human health, veterinary palliative care supports our pets to live as well as possible and maintain quality of life even in the face of advancing age or a terminal diagnosis. 

We provide this specialised type of care at home because we know that often, when you’re unwell, home is where you really want to be. 

Our vets will work in conjunction with your primary care veterinarian to deliver support for both you and your pet.

Grief Support

The loss or illness of a best friend hurts and we’re determined to help families connect better with the support they need. 

Our range of counselling services are available to both clients of Sunset Vets and clients of other veterinary clinics nationwide. 

So if you’re struggling with the prospect of saying goodbye or feel you need support in the months following a loss, please reach out. 

A burden shared is a burden lessened.

About Us

Sunset Veterinary Care is a dedicated palliative care and euthanasia service helping families to access specialised end-stage care at home.  

This often means supporting families as they navigate a terminal diagnosis or ensuring pets are comfortable and not experiencing unnecessary pain in the final months of life. In many cases, our most important role is to help families to say a gentle goodbye at home, supported by a care team who truly understand how hard that day can be. 

How We Work

Our network of mobile veterinarians provide a unique service, offering compassionate and personalised care in your own home. We work in conjunction with your primary care veterinarian to deliver additional support to patients with complicated medical needs and those approaching end of life. 

Our clients are supported by an incredible patient care team in head office who are there to ensure you’re connected with the right support and services for you. 

Our Why

End of life care is an emerging field of veterinary medicine and we’re dedicated to being at the forefront of it. We believe that the moments at the end of a pet’s life are to be treasured and are committed to helping families access a different type of care during this difficult time. 

Time and time again, we have seen that this approach equates to better outcomes for our patients and that well supported families are better equiped to respond to their grief.
