Sadly, due to deteriorating health, advanced age and debilitation, chronic, uncontrolled pain, or other reasons our pets may need to be euthanized (put to sleep). Circle Veterinary Clinic provides this procedure after careful consideration and consultation between the family and our compassionate veterinarians. This service is provided in the most humane manner possible by first, giving a calming sedative, then, when it has achieved its effect, carefully and kindly placing an IV catheter and administering a drug specific for this purpose. The veterinarian is the only one administering this drug and ensures it achieves its purpose. Owners are entitled to remain with their pet throughout this procedure. Once your pet is deceased you may decide to have a memorial paw print or cremation services with the option of having the ashes returned to you. These are provided through our long-time arrangement with Delaware Pet Cremations located here in the Wilmington area. .
