Euthanasia and Cremation Options
The decision to say goodbye is never easy but with our support, it’s one you’ll never have to make alone.
Whether this is the first time you’ve had to deal with a decision of this nature, or you’ve been through it before and know there are certain things you want to ensure the most peaceful goodbye, our team are here to guide you through.
At Sunset Vets, we want you to feel comfortable with every care decision made for your pet. We can help you navigate decisions on just about everything – from the timing of your visit, to whether kids should be present, to your options for burial or cremation. And if you’re wondering what this visit might actually look like, have a quick read about what to expect here.
Our veterinarians are currently able to support families with compassionate home euthanasia throughout the greater Brisbane area, the Gold and Sunshine Coast’s and metro Canberra. Appointments are available 7 days per week, with no additional costs for evening or weekend consultation times and travel outside of these areas can also be arranged for families in need so please call our care team to discuss.
Note: Whilst we will always do our best to be with you when you need us, we endeavour to work with families for whom euthanasia is a planned and carefully considered decision. If your pet is in crisis or requires urgent medical attention please contact your local veterinarian or emergency clinic.
Get in touch and chat to our supportive patient care team for confirmation of service costs in your region. Pre-euthanasia planning, access to quality of life assessment resources, counselling and support are all included in our service fees. Additional travel charges may apply in some locations.
