We are now OPEN 7 Days a Week!

We understand the special bond our pets have with their humans. It is unlike any other. They bring unconditional love, companionship, and acceptance in any circumstance. The loss of a pet can be inexplicable, especially if it is a first pet or you have children loosing a lifetime companion.This can be a very challenging time for both adults and children. While they may be gone, we keep them forever in our hearts with the memories and imprints they left. Here at Queen Creek Veterinary Clinic, we treat this time of heartache with the utmost compassion, as many of us have experienced the grief of the loss of our own furry family members in our lives. We strive to be there for you every step of the way understanding what it is like and helping you understand the process.

Pet Loss Queen Creek

Euthanasia itself is a very kind and compassionate way of ending your pet’s suffering. The veterinarian will administer a strong sedative to relax your pet and put them in a tranquil state before administering euthanasia solution. Because this can be a very difficult time, some owners may elect not to stay with their pet. On the other hand many want to stay, so that they can comfort them until they are gone. There is no right way. If you choose to stay, we understand how difficult this is, so we try to give you as much time as you need both before and after in a quiet area of the hospital.

At your request, we will provide you with a complimentary ink paw print of your pet as a memory to cherish forever. Those who wish, may have their pet’s ashes returned to them in cedar urn with their name engraved on a metal plaque. Clay paw prints are available for a nominal fee.

Our veterinarians and support team recommend rescue and re-homing of unwanted animals. We reserve the right to not euthanize a healthy pet. Please understand that euthanasia takes a toll not only on the families of the pet, but on the doctors and support staff as well. To ensure that we stay true to this pledge, we may ask you to set an appointment for an exam before the doctor agrees to euthanize a pet. This normally applies only to an animal we are either seeing for the first time or whose condition has changed significantly.

    Rainbow Bridge

    Rainbow Bridge

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
