Euthanasia Services



HSDC offers humane euthanasia services to pet owners who need to end their pet’s suffering. To ensure we have trained staff available to assist with this request, we offer euthanasia services on Tuesdays during our Wellness & Vaccination Clinic from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. (We suggest checking our Wellness Clinic page for any schedule changes prior to arriving.) Should you need to make immediate arrangements, you will need to contact your own veterinarian or an emergency veterinary clinic.
