Being a pet owner is an amazing experience and the bond you share with your four-legged friend is life changing. As pet owners, you also bear the burden of making emotional decisions regarding the quality of life of your animal, this includes accepting that they have reached the end of their life. Whether they are deathly sick, severely injured or just very old and struggle to make it through a day, as their guardians we owe it to them to end their suffering in a dignified manner.

"What we once enjoyed we can never lose; all that we love deeply becomes a part of us."

When the time has come, helping relieve pain and suffering is the kindest gift we can give to our unconditionally loving companions.

We’ve been through this process many times and understand how we’d want to be treated and do our best to provide exactly that level of care to every single person and pet who calls us.

GreenTree Veterinary Service offers compassionate euthanasia services for clients in the Santa Monica Area. We are committed to carrying out the process in a dignified manner striving to provide a stress-free experience. 

We’ll make sure you have the time to understand the whole process, and do our utmost to make sure that we discuss your fears, concerns, and questions about the euthanasia process as well as offer access to grief resources should you or your family need them.

Doing this in the pet’s home helps reduce the stress and fear associated with an office visit, or leaving their own territory. You will surround your pet with love at home, in their comfortable space. Our goal is always “no fear, no pain” and “much love” for them, and to minimize the trauma of loss for you.

We will never rush the process – this is your time to say goodbye and we’ll do this at the pace both you and your pet require.

If your pet is suffering from a medical condition that you believe warrants these end of life services we ask that you:

  1. Bring any medical records available
  2. Bring any medication the pet has been prescribed
