In-Home Euthanasia

What to expect with an In-home Euthanasia



Initial Phone Consultation

-We will discuss your concerns and whether euthanasia sounds appropriate at this time or should we consider diagnostics and/or treatment first. Your pet's condition can seem more dire than it is and in some cases treatment is simple, effective, and affordable.

-If it seems like the time is right for euthanasia, we will discuss the options and costs in advance. The presented plans will include all associated costs for the travel, brief exam, injections, aftercare, and transportation of your pet to the cremation facility as appropriate.



The Appointment

-The euthanasia will be discussed and all your questions will be answered in advance.

-A sedative is given to reduce potential anxiety and discomfort in your pet; this typically takes effect in 5-10 minutes.

-In many cases, an IV catheter is placed after your pet is sedate.

-When everyone is ready, we will proceed with the euthanasia. This usually involves the injection of an anesthetic solution followed quickly by the euthanasia solution.

-The doctor will confirm that your pet has passed and then give you personal time alone with your pet.

-If we are providing aftercare, we will transport your pet to the cremation facility.

-Finally, we have experienced euthanasias with our own pets and understand the significance of these final steps you are taking with your pet, be assured we will treat your pet as we would our own.
