We euthanize pet birds by first administering a gas general anesthetic by face mask. Within several seconds of having the mask applied the bird is completely asleep and unaware of the euthanasia injection that follows. While the bird is maintained under general anesthesia we administer an injection of the same medication we use to euthanize dogs and cats. This is the most effective and humane euthanasia possible.


Because of how quickly general anesthesia occurs and also because of the safety requirements regarding the use of gas anesthesia we do not allow clients to be present for the anesthesia or euthanasia of birds.


Our clients have the options of seeing their pet after it has passed away, and of taking the remains with them for home burial or leaving them here. We offer private cremation, with the ashes returned, or non-private cremation, with the ashes not returned.
