Respectful, Comfortable End-of-Life Care

Dr. Murphy and the caring technicians at Westside Animal Hospital can help you manage any pain your pet may be experiencing toward the end of his or her life. When the time comes, we can also provide respectful, compassionate euthanasia.

We answer any questions you might have about the process, and we do everything possible to support you through the experience and make sure your pet is completely comfortable in his or her final moments. The process is both peaceful and respectful. A lit candle in our waiting area is our indication to other pet owners that someone is saying goodbye to a beloved pet.

Our dog happens to be named Murphy!!!! …I know Dr. Murphy quite well and our Murphy was a patient at Westside Animal Hospital yesterday for an operation… needless to stay despite the reason for his visit he loved his time with the Westside crew (including Christina Knoell)!!! They are amazing folks and put all of us including Murph at ease!
