Euthanasia/Cremation Services in Somerset & New Lexington, OH

We never like to think about having to put our beloved pet to sleep, but sometimes due to age, a serious illness or accident we are faced with this decision. Euthanasia is an option to humanely help your pet when they are suffering and medical options have been exhausted. Our doctors and staff can help you with this humane procedure if/when you may be faced with this decision. This procedure, which we prefer to do in the office, allows you to be with your pet if you choose.

Once a pet passes away either at home, due to an accident or humane euthanasia at our office, we offer cremation as an alternative to burial. If you are ever in need of this service, just contact our office and let one of our helpful staff members know and we will assist you through the process.
