Please note, however, that I only serve within the state of Kansas.
Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is already one of the most difficult things to endure. Pet euthanasia at home provides a safe and familiar environment in which to say goodbye to your pet, especially if they are fearful or stressed out by car rides or the atmosphere of a veterinary clinic. In addition to in-home euthanasia, I can also perform the procedure in your yard or in your pet's favorite place. Having lost several pets of my own over the years, I know just how hard it is, and so it is my primary goal during every euthanasia visit to make such a difficult time as peaceful as possible for both the owners and their pets. Here is what you can expect from such a visit.
I begin by sitting down with you to get some basic information for a medical record. This usually takes around 5 minutes, then we take care of payment. Next I will give your pet a sedative under the skin behind the neck (the same place where vaccines are given). Any injection can sting for a moment, but I've found that if your offer your pet a delicious treat such as peanut butter or cheese when the shot is administered, they are usually distracted enough that they barely notice. It takes just a second to give the injection, but it takes anywhere from 5-15 minutes for the sedative to take full effect. During this time, I will leave you alone with your pet as they fall asleep and just come back in every few minutes to check on them. Once full sedation has been achieved, your pet will be in a very deep state of anesthesia. They will be completely unconscious, unaware of anything happening around them and incapable of feeling any pain or sensation.
At this point I will proceed with the euthanasia injection. This is done differently in different pets depending on size and other factors. You can choose to be present or to step out of the room if you prefer. I'm also able to take the sedated pet out to my vehicle and perform the procedure there if preferred. I will accommodate myself to your preferences.
Once the euthanasia has been done, you can spend more time with your pet if you wish. Once you're ready, I will take them away for cremation unless you've made your own arrangements. If I'm taking them, I will place them into a body bag and cover them with a blanket (both of which I provide), then I will carry them out to my vehicle on a stretcher. I can carry any pet up to about 90 lbs by myself, but will need assistance for pets larger than this. If you have opted for a private cremation, we will contact you to arrange pick up of the ashes once we have them ready for you, usually within two weeks of the visit.
The following prices include all charges, including the housecall fee. Please note that ashes are returned with a private cremation only. Communal ashes are scattered on a private family farm. You are also welcome to make your own arrangements for burial or cremation, if you prefer.
