Sadly, there may come a time there is nothing that we, or veterinary medicine, can do to heal your beloved friend. If your pet is suffering from a painful medical condition or has a diminished quality of life, you may feel that euthanasia is the best option.

Knowing when to say goodbye to your pet is often one of the most difficult decisions a pet owner will face.  Your veterinarian will always be Honest and give as much information as he or she possibly can.  Your East Tennessee Veterinary Hospital family will be with you during this time, keeping both you and your precious friend as comfortable as possible and always preserve their dignity.  Not only do we love and cherish our own pets, we have come to love and cherish your special pet.

In a time of grief, making arrangements can be difficult. We will take care of all of these for you in the same caring and compassionate manner that we always cared for your cherished friend.  We will arrange for cremation and an urn or prepare your pet for burial if that is your wish. We also offer a service for your pet if you do not have means for cremation or burial.
