About The Sunset Vets

We are a group of veterinarians that had a desire to serve our animals and their families in the most dignified way we could. 

We firmly believe euthanasia is how we show respect to our best friends for their unconditional love. 

The term "Sunset" comes from the use of the word in Caribbean culture as the date of passing away. It is a beautiful way to picture a our best friends walking into the sun after their job on earth is done.

Service

In home euthanasia is designed to be calm, peaceful and minimally stressful for you and your pet. When our vet arrives, you will have some paperwork to sign, then we focus on your pet. We will provide anesthesia through a single shot under the skin or in the muscle to allow the pet to slowly fall asleep with you. We will then injection a second solution into the vein or a select organ to allow the heart to stop. The process takes from 5-30 min, and we never rush it. After your pet has passed, you have time to say goodbye while we pack our things. When you are ready, we will take your pets body with us to prepare for cremation.
