Euthanasia Policy

Dr. Good has carefully crafted a euthanasia policy over 20 years of practice — one that best works for the animal and the owner while preserving the integrity and philosophy of her practice. Choosing to euthanize an animal is a deeply impactful decision, and, like an ecosystem, affects everyone involved — the pet, the family, and the doctor.

Dr. Good must be connected with the animal in order to mercifully end that animal's life. They must have a relationship, a trust, and a history that makes sense of the difficult conclusion that has been consensually reached.

Therefore, Dr. Good only euthanizes her own patients — those who have been in discussion and contact for the recent decline, or, if under extraordinary circumstances, those patients who require immediate relief.
