At Heartstrings, we recognize the uniqueness of each family’s decision and are committed to guiding them through this individualized process. Our compassionate team provides support, guidance, and necessary assistance to ensure the chosen farewell aligns with the family’s wishes, making the journey as seamless and comforting as possible.

Need to Talk To Heartstrings About Aftercare Options?

Upon the veterinarian’s arrival, a comprehensive explanation of the entire procedure will be provided to you and your family, tailored to your preferences and comfort level. Feel free to inquire about any aspect along the way—everything will proceed at a pace determined by you and your pet. In most cases, barring extreme or urgent circumstances, a sedation injection will be administered to your pet to guarantee their comfort. This will induce a state of drowsiness, allowing your pet to gradually fall asleep before the final injection, ensuring a painless and serene procedure.
