We are always happy to help answer any questions you may have!
Below are some of our most frequently asked questions. If your question is not answered below, please contact us and we’ll assist you.
What does a dog or cat annual cost?
What areas do you serve and what is the cost of travel?
Do you offer in-home euthanasia services? What does that cost?
Can I have my pet cremated?
Yes. We work with a fantastic cremation company called Honor Thy Pet for our cremation services. They came out of human cremation services, and they hold themselves to the same standards as they did when they worked with human loved ones. You can go to their website to see the details of their services. When your pet is cremated, Honor Thy Pet returns their remains to us and we bring them home to you.
How do I know when it's time to schedule an appointment for euthanasia?
Generally speaking, when we discuss the quality of life, we recommend that you think about your pet’s three favorite things – whatever they may be; what does your pet love to do the most (other than eating)? And you don’t have to necessarily think about what his favorite things were 10 years ago, but even 1 year ago when your pet was still his normal self. When 2 of those 3 things are gone (either your pet is physically unable to do them or doesn’t have the will or desire to), that is not a good quality of life.
Another objective way to evaluate your pets’ quality of life is to start documenting your pets’ good days vs. bad days on a calendar. We have a tendency to remember the good things and forget the bad things, so a daily log can again help us remain objective in the face of a painful choice. When the bad days outnumber the good days, that is also an indicator of poor quality of life.
Another factor to consider is: Is your pet currently on any medications or supplements to help with their health problems? If the answer is no, then we really need to consider getting your pet to a veterinarian – there are SO many ways that we can help even the oldest pets to feel good and have a good quality of life. You have choices, but you need to have this conversation with a veterinarian.
How far ahead do I need to make an appointment?
We also do not generally offer services for severely ill pets as we do not have any ability to hospitalize them to give them the intensive care they need.
What should I do if I have an EMERGENCY with my pet?
Fri – Sun: Closed
