Deciding the right time is difficult. The doctor will visit with you and your pet, talk through your pet's quality of life, and help you decide the best course of action.
If you decide at that time to proceed with euthanasia, no consultation fee will be assessed as long as the discussion takes less than 30 minutes.
A quality of life consultation is not required for in-home euthanasia. It is offered as a service to families who need help deciding the right time.
This service gives you the unique opportunity to say goodbye to your pet in the place where you are most comfortable.
Appointments typically take between 45 minutes to an hour. You will want to provide your pet with a soft towel or blanket for the procedure.
