Putting to sleep

We understand that the decision to have your horse or pony put to sleep is one of the hardest you will ever have to make for them. We are here to help you at every step of this process. The reception team will be more than happy to assist you through the logistics, including booking in the appointment and organising collection for afterward. All of our vets are experienced in carrying out equine euthanasia and we ensure that plenty of time is set aside for these appointments to ensure you never feel rushed through any part of the procedure. As much as we don’t like to think of it, we do recommend that you make a provisional “PTS Plan” for when the time does come. Having a plan to turn to in times of high emotion can help the whole thing be marginally less stressful.

If you have any further queries on the subject please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0191 603 11 22.
