IN-HOME PET EUTHANASIA
Dr. Rikh will arrive at your house at the designated arrival window. Time and care will be taken to get to know you and your pet upon arrival. We welcome and encourage you to share stories, photos and fond memories. We will get settled in at the most comfortable and desired spot in your home. The doctor will walk you through the procedure and what to expect prior to administration of any medications. Once you are comfortable and ready, your beloved pet will receive an injection which will be a combination of both sedatives and pain medications. Once your pet is sedated and comfortable, the final medication will be administered to achieve a peaceful passing. You will have as much time as you need with your pet during all parts of the procedure. If there are any special needs or requests please discuss those with the doctor ahead of time (if possible) and we will be happy to accommodate those to the best of our ability. Please expect the entire visit to last approximately 30-60 minutes.
If you choose one of our aftercare options, the crematorium will pick up your pet from your house immediately after their peaceful passing. If you choose to have the ashes returned to you, they will be delivered back to your house within 24-48 hours along with a clay paw print, fur clipping and your choice of engraved urn. For more information and video on this please see the "Body care options" section under the services tab.
Payment, body care option, and consent form will be discussed and taken care of prior to the appointment so that the focus can be on you and your beloved pet once the doctor arrives. A consent form is available on this site under the forms tab or by clicking here: consent form.
