The Decision

Not all In-Home Euthanasia is the same

At Happy Endings In-Home Euthanasia, we perform euthanasia using the absolute most humane method available. Dr. Fixler has studied anesthetic protocols extensively to create the most peaceful and painless euthanasia experience. From the first phone call and throughout the entire process, Dr. Fixler, his wife Alicia and our tech, create the most comforting experience for their pet owners in this difficult time. It is for these reasons that Happy Endings In-Home Pet Euthanasia has become the most recommended service of its kind in the valley.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will happen after I make the appointment for my pet?

After you have made your appointment, there is nothing left for you to do except love and be with your pet. We will take care of all details of the appointment so that you can focus on making sure your pet is comfortable.

Cremation Options

After your pet has peacefully departed, there are decisions to make regarding his/her body.


Anyone who considers a pet a beloved friend, companion, or family member knows the intense pain that accompanies the loss of that friend. Following are some tips on coping with that grief, and with the difficult decisions one faces upon the loss of a pet. Intense grief over the loss of a pet is normal and natural. Don't let anyone tell you that it's silly, crazy, or overly sentimental to grieve!

During the years you spent with your pet (even if they were few), it became a significant and constant part of your life. It was a source of comfort and companionship, of unconditional love and acceptance, of fun and joy.
