"It is the most unselfish act in all of life to let one go that we have found beloved"- Kate McGahan
SERVICES AND FEES
We provide calm, peaceful end of life services.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We know how hard it is to lose a pet. All our veterinarians have been through it many times with their own pets. We take these experiences to heart and know that the service we provide is a blessing. Many people comment "this must be hard for you". While each and every passing is difficult, we also take peace in knowing that it marks the end of an animal's suffering.
Our veterinarian will arrive at your home explain what to expect during the procedure. They will answer any questions that you have at this time. A consent form is signed, giving permission to perform the euthanasia.
A sedative injection is given underneath your pet's skin. This generally does not hurt and feels much like a vaccine to your pet. This injection causes sedation within 5-15 minutes and your pet will be in a peaceful state. At this time a second injection is administered intravenously. This injection is an overdose of an anesthesia and your pet will gently go to sleep within a matter of minutes. Our veterinarian will inform you when your pet's heart has stopped beating and he or she has passed on.
The average cost of a euthanasia is between $350 to $600 depending on services requested by the owner. Individual cremation, return of ashes and clay paw prints will increase the cost of services
