In-Home Euthanasia & Cost


Consultation:

We want to be good stewards of our pets and provide them with the best care at all stages of their life.  Some decisions we make on their behalf are easy; but some are difficult. The decision to let go is usually the most difficult. Talking matters over with your pet’s primary care veterinarian can be helpful. DR 4 PETS is also available for free phone consultations.

Quality of Life:

Pets cannot talk, so we must rely on other signals that communicate their state of well-being. Take a few moments to sit with a friend or family member and evaluate your pet’s condition by using The Quality of Life Scale (This scale is provided with the permission of its author, Dr. Alice Villabolos). Also see our in-depth quality of life blog here.

Quality of Life Scale - Dog

Quality of Life Scale - Cat

Euthanasia:

This is a two-step procedure. First you pet given a sedative, which will induce a very relaxed, peaceful state. Next a catheter is placed in a vein. Then your pet is administered the final injection, which causes them to pass smoothly.

Aftercare:

DR 4 PETS respectfully handles your pets remains. 

You can choose from any of the following options: 

You may also opt to have a communal handling of your pet’s remains, or to make your own arrangements.

Cost:  We accept cash, credit card, Zelle, and Venmo
