Saying Goodbye

We’re here for you when it’s time to say goodbye


It is an unfortunate fact that we all have to face up to, but most of us will outlive our pets, which means that sooner or later you will have to say goodbye to what has become a cherished friend and much-loved companion.

This process is never easy but here at Best Friends Vet Group we will do everything we can to help you through this difficult period.

Taking the decision to euthanise a pet can be tough, but we can guide you through this distressing time. Our experienced team will discuss your needs and talk you through the various options to suit you and your pet.

It is worth remembering that when an animal is really suffering, euthanasia is the kindest thing you can do and at Best Friends Group, we always approach this in a sensitive and humane manner.


Giving you the space you need


Many of our practices have a separate room where you can say goodbye to your pet. This is away from the main consultation rooms so that you can take your time and aren’t rushed. We understand how important this can be, and our team always approach this situation in a caring and thoughtful way. The Best Friends team are on hand to support you through this difficult time and know how upsetting it can be. You can ask them any question you need to.

As part of our house visits, some Best Friends Vet Branches can offer this service at home as well. This gives you the chance to say goodbye to your pet in the home that you shared together and many pet owners find this comforting. Speak to your local Best Friends Vet to find out what they can offer.

We can advise on cremation services if required. Rest assured you will be treated with sensitivity and respect throughout this sad time.
