Resuscitative Directive Information – Navigating Difficult Decisions with Compassion

At Animal Emergency Care, we recognize that discussing resuscitative directives for your pet can be an emotionally challenging experience. Our compassionate team is here to support you during this difficult time, ensuring you are well informed about the available options and anticipated outcomes of CPR measures.


Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) are two options to consider in the event of your pet’s sudden cardiac or respiratory arrest. Our team will provide you with all the necessary information to make an informed decision that best aligns with your wishes and your pet’s needs. We understand the gravity of this decision and are here to guide you with empathy and understanding.

Owner Information and Consents

As a pet owner, it is essential to be aware of the resuscitative directive options and their potential outcomes. During your pet’s emergency visit, our team will discuss these options with you and request your consent for the chosen course of action. Your input is invaluable, and we will respect your decisions while providing the best possible care for your pet.
