Pet In-Home Euthanasia

We all hope for a peaceful, quiet passing for our pets in their home, in their sleep, and surrounded by those who love them–a home pet euthanasia with Journey Home Vet can provide this experience.

Our Euthanasia Services Include:

  • Availability during morning, afternoon, evenings, weekdays, and weekends.
  • Sedation to prevent discomfort and anxiety and remove the need for restraint.
  • Euthanasia provided in the privacy and intimacy of your own home
  • Assistance with aftercare for your pet’s body, per your preference. Cremation services are available with or without ash return.
  • Memorial posting on our website
  • Notification to your regular veterinarian of your pets’ passing
  • As the doctor works alone, please be aware that the doctor will need assistance moving pets over 30 lbs, or we can set up aftercare through the crematorium for an additional charge.
  • If your pet is extremely fearful or anxious or has issues with aggression, a pre-euthanasia consultation may be a good choice to discuss possible medications and a plan to help ease stress and maintain safety for all involved. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss this option.

We offer several options for our families. You may opt for in-home euthanasia only, where you and your family provide a home burial or transport your pet yourself. We also provide private cremation, where you receive only your pet’s ashes in an urn with a clay pawprint. A variety of memorial products are available for all body care options, as well as custom urns and additional paw prints. Finally, you may opt for group cremation, where ashes are scattered and not returned to you.

Please see the “Aftercare” section for details on options for your pet’s remains.

If you are unable or do not desire to help the doctor transfer your pet’s body to her vehicle, we can arrange with the crematorium to pick it up directly for an additional fee. Please call to discuss.
