Making The Right Decision In Putting Your Horse Down?

Euthanasia is a way to ensure your horse has a pain-free death, but knowing when it is the right time to take that decision is a concern for all responsible horse owners.

Some of the important indicators that may highlight that the end is drawing near for your companion are:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Depression
  • Chronic weight loss
  • Difficulty to move and/or get up after laying down

When it comes to euthanasia, most owners opt for a lethal injection by a vet.  It is important for you to plan ahead as to what will happen to your horse’s body afterwards.  It will be easier to manage when the time comes if a prior arrangement has already been made.  Please call Heavenly Pastures for more information and a sensitive discussion about the services we offer. You can choose to have your horse’s ashes returned to you, in a beautiful box so you can remember them forever.

Of course, you may be in need of some emotional support during this difficult time. There are a number of schemes and information leaflets available from organisations such as World Horse Welfare, the BHS and Blue Cross that can make sure that you as a horse owner is supported through every stage of the equine euthanasia process.
