Euthanasia & Aftercare

Respectful Cat and Dog Euthanasia in Boca Raton, FL

The time we have with our pets, no matter how long, is never long enough. It’s never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet, and we want to make that difficult time more manageable by providing compassionate hospice and euthanasia services for your pet.

In addition to a quiet “comfort room” at the hospital where you can say goodbye to your pet, we also offer at-home euthanasia to our loyal clients

At-Home Euthanasia

We will do all that we can to make the situation as comfortable and peaceful as possible for your entire family. We know it won’t be an easy call to make, but please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at 561-395-4030 if we can assist you with end-of-life care in the comfort of your pet’s own home. *This service is only available to current clients of Boca Palms Animal Hospital

Final Care Options

Every pet owner grieves in their own way, and our concern is making sure you get to say goodbye to your companion in the manner you most prefer. We offer several options that you can read about below:

Burial at home – Owners do have an option to take their loving pet’s remains home after euthanasia for a private burial. Please consider the possibility of having to relocate, and if your city codes allow. We will prepare your pet’s remains for their trip to their final resting place.

Private Aquamation – Aquamation is an alternate form of afterlife care service that is cremation through water. Unlike cremation by fire, aquamation is gentler and more eco-friendly, as aquamation uses only water and alkaline, which is a combination of sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide. After aquamation, you will receive a beautiful memorial package that includes a decorative urn, a paw print from your pet pressed in clay, a tuft of their fur, and a cremation certificate.

Private cremation – After having your pet cremated, you will receive a beautiful memorial package. This includes a decorative urn, a paw print from your pet pressed in clay, a tuft of their fur, and a cremation certificate.

Regular cremation – Your pet will be cremated, but their ashes will not be returned.
