Saying Goodbye After a Lifetime of Love

End-of-Life Care For Your Special Friend at ZimmVet

How do you say goodbye to a companion that has provided so much unconditional love and affection? Facing the final stages of your animal family member’s life is one of the most difficult times for any pet owner. At ZimmVet, we know how difficult it can be to say goodbye to your best friend.

After all treatment options have been exhausted, it’s important to assess your beloved animal companion’s quality of life. Keeping him or her as comfortable and pain-free as possible is our priority.

At some point, though, you may have to face the tough question of whether or not to have your pet humanely euthanized. Our staff is prepared to guide you through the process with all the compassion and respect that you and your pet deserve.

The AAHA Healthy Pet website offers a helpful article, Pet Euthanasia: The Last Stage of Care for Beloved Pets, for pet owners facing that difficult and emotional decision.

We also suggest you visit our pet loss library for more information about end-of-life care and managing the loss of a pet.

Client Testimonials

Wonderful Care! We have been bringing both dogs to ZimmVet for years. We always get great care and everyone is friendly. Our Lab gets so excited when she gets there. Our other dog suffers from great anxiety and they treat her so well. They know the personality of both so well and know how to treat them.

I would not know of any other veterinarian that has a more caring staff that are patient with us and take the time to listen about our three Pomeranians. Zimmvet knows how important our girls are to us and I would not take a chance on bringing them anywhere else.

— Ken G.

Our vet honored our desire to keep expenses down by providing us with estimates of the treatment we could choose from while trying to find out what was wrong with our very sick puggle. No cost was hidden. On top of all this, our dog was given excellent care. We love Zimmvet.

— Carisa M.

I have and will continue to recommend ZimmVet to others. The staff is personable and professional on all levels, both to the human clients and the animal patients. It is reassuring to me to know that I can count on them for any assistance I may need in caring for my pets now and in the future.

— Lou S.

We love Zimmvet! And most importantly, Handsome loves everyone at Zimmvet! We use their vet services and pet hotel and couldn't be happier with both. Highly recommend!

Our experiences over the years are always positive, even if the outcome isn't. The doctors and staff are warm and friendly. They are also very professional and thorough. We feel strongly that we get great value for our dollar, as well as wonderful pet care.

ZimmVet Pet Hotel has provided extended stay care for our German Shepherd and Black Labrador twice in the last two years. They did a great job of caring for them both during a two-week trip - not only catering to their needs but their concerned owners with email updates and photos. We can't say enough good things about ZimmVet Pet Hotel!!

— Curt V.

ZimmVet has well trained and competent professionals, but even more important to me is that they are sincerely 'good' people. They care about you and your pets - you're just not another record. In addition to the great staff, they offer a very broad range of services - even day care and training classes!
