A life well-lived deserves a dignified and peaceful end. At Pharr Road Animal Hospital, caring for your pet throughout their life is a privilege we don’t take for granted.

Your dogs and cats become like family to us, and we feel just as concerned as you when they’re not doing well. When a beloved family companion reaches the twilight of their life, we know this is a time for making difficult decisions. Our veterinary team is here to support you and help you make those decisions. Therefore, you can be certain that your pet is receiving the care they deserve to make their last days, hours, or minutes as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Call (404) 237-4601 or make an appointment so we can talk about your pet’s health and needs. We’re always here for you!

Knowing When It’s Time to Consider Euthanasia

Euthanasia is the most compassionate treatment option for dogs and cats who are suffering from illness, injury, or the ravages of old age. If you’re not sure whether your pet is experiencing more bad days than good days, consider these symptoms/situations below. Together, we can decide what the next steps will be in your pet’s treatment.

  • Not eating or drinking, even with encouragement
  • Unable to keep food or water down
  • Unable to stand or walk
  • Lack of control of bowels
  • Sleeping all the time
  • Depressed, not interacting with anyone

"State of the art facility; incredible veterinarians; amazing staff; and most of all a very caring and loving place. They have cared for my two Goldens since puppyhood, and just recently helped my senior dog cross over Rainbow Bridge in a peaceful, caring and considerate way. I am touched by how professional and loving everyone is."
