Pet ownership is a deeply enriching journey, filled with unconditional love and cherished memories that will endure for years to come. Whether our companionship lasts for a brief period or spans many joyful years, the impact our pets have on our lives is profound and everlasting.

Yet, when the time arrives to bid farewell to our beloved companions, the weight of the decision can be overwhelming. At Cayman Animal Hospital, we recognize the emotional complexities inherent in this journey. Our utmost priority is to support our clients through this difficult time, striving to ease the decision-making process and alleviate the burden and suffering for both owners and their cherished pets.


At Cayman Animal Hospital, we honor the enduring bond between pets and their families, ensuring that each farewell is filled with dignity, compassion, and unwavering support. Our dedicated team is always available to lend an empathetic ear, offering guidance and answering any questions you may have. We understand that every situation is unique, and we honor the individual needs and wishes of each family we serve.

If a decision is made to proceed with euthanasia, we provide a calm and supportive environment where you can say goodbye to your cherished companion with privacy, love, and respect. Our approach to euthanasia includes:

Compassionate Counseling: Our veterinarians take the time to discuss your pet’s condition, prognosis, and treatment options in a compassionate and understanding manner. We are here to answer any questions you may have and provide support as you make this difficult decision.

Comfort and Care: During the euthanasia procedure, we take every measure to ensure your pet’s comfort and minimize stress. You may choose to be present with your pet during this time, offering comfort and reassurance.

Memorialization Options: We understand the importance of honoring and remembering your beloved pet. We offer various memorialization options, including clay paw prints, keepsake urns, and memorial plaques, to help you cherish the memories of your furry friend.

Aftercare Support: Our team is here to support you through the grieving process. We provide resources and guidance to help you cope with the loss of your pet and navigate the emotions that accompany the grieving process.


For those who wish to explore options for cremation or burial, we offer informational handouts available at our reception area, allowing you the opportunity to consider these choices thoughtfully and in advance. By taking care of these arrangements beforehand, you can focus solely on bidding farewell to your treasured friend when the time comes.
