Dr. Tanouye is available for quality of life consultations and to offer solutions for palliative care for existing patients only. When a patient’s quality of life has declined, and he or she is having more bad days than good, euthanasia is often the most humane option. Our doctors and staff will help to support and guide you as you make this difficult decision.

Home euthanasia is the most peaceful and private way to say goodbye to your pet, who will be able to rest at home, in a favorite place, during his or her final moments. Prior to your appointment with Rock Creek Home Vet, we will explain the process and what to expect. During the appointment, you and your pet will be treated with respect and kindness, and you will be able to spend as much alone time with your pet as you want while saying goodbye.

If you choose, we will take your pet’s remains for cremation through Agape Pet Services. You may choose communal or private cremation; we are happy to discuss these options with you.

If your pet is not a current patient of ours, here are several excellent in-home euthanasia services in the area:
