End of Life Pet Services
Whether they’re cats, dogs, or pocket pets, our furry friends find a place in our hearts and our homes, and realizing they’re nearing the end of their life can be a very scary and painful process. At Germantown Vet, we can help you handle the end of your pet’s life with dignity and compassion.
Call us today at 240-252-7467 to get more information about your pet’s end of life services and to discuss your options.
Is It Time?
One of the most common questions pet owners ask themselves is, “Is it time?” That is a very difficult question, and it is one that should be discussed with your veterinarian. Many times, we have pets visit us at the end of their life who are experiencing a lot of pain, and their quality of life has deteriorated. In these cases, it is often the humane thing to do to put them down. However, you will need to consult a veterinarian about the best course of action.
End of Life Options for Pets
At Germantown Vet, we offer a number of end of life options for your pet from Agape Pet Services. They are a cremation facility that provides private cremation services that will return your pet’s remains to you. Agape also offers private attended cremation, allowing you to be present during the process.
Agape Pet Services also has specially-chosen urns, keepsake jewelry, and burial markers. You can visit their website to view the many options available. Orders can be placed directly online or you can give them a call, and they will be happy to help you through the ordering process.
Compassionate End of Life Care
If you believe your pet is nearing the end of his or her life, please give us a call. Our caring team can discuss all of your options with you so that you can make the most humane decision possible.

About Germantown Vet
At Germantown Vet, we’re pet owners too. Family-owned and operated, we treat our patients and their owners as we would treat our own pets and family members. Our veterinarians take the time to listen, educate, and create a customized a plan for your pet’s health. It is important to us to treat each pet and its owner as individuals with their own needs and concerns.
Since opening our doors in 1983, Germantown Vet has become the go-to veterinary clinic for pet owners throughout Montgomery County, Maryland. Our state-of-the-art veterinary facility with an in-house laboratory allows us to provide full surgical, dental, ultrasound and even acupuncture services for your pet to ensure all aspects of your pet’s health can be cared for. Your pet’s lab work, x-rays, prescriptions and medical history are available in the patient’s electronic medical record—just like the best human hospitals. When needed, these medical documents are ready to send to other animal specialists or to a new vet in another state if your family is moving. Our veterinarians are available to care for hospitalized patients after hours, and we have a live-in veterinary nurse to check on our patients during the night.
