When you have made your appointment, we arrange for a nurse to also attend to assist the vet so that you can spend 100% of your time saying goodbye to your pet. Your pet can sit in their favourite spot either inside or outside, in their bed or on your lap, wherever your petis most comfortable. An intravenous injection is normally given into the front leg and is an overdose of an anaesthetic. Once the injection is given your pet will 'fall asleep' in seconds and their heart will stop. On some occasions, your pet may need sedation beforehand. After the procedure, you can either choose to bury your pet or we can transport the pet for cremation or burial. We are proud to use the family owned business, Lawnswood for all of our cremations and burials.
Option 1: You can choose to have your pet's ashes returned to you. Further details of options for vessels or scattering bags can be found at lawnswood.com.au
Option 2: You can choose a general cremation where your pet's ashes are respectfully scattered with other animals at Lawnswood's pet cemetery. This option is more cost effective.
For further details of Lawnswood's cremation and burial services, please visit lawnswood.com.au.
For all of the above options we transport your pet, after the procedure, to our clinic for collection by Lawnswood.
Costs of home euthanasia vary depending on your location, the size of your pet and whether you require cremation or burial services. Please contact us with this information and we can provide you with an estimate.
We accept cash, cheque or credit card payment. Payment must be made at the home visit.
Our nurses are trained to deal with this process with compassion. If you would like to discuss the process further, require an estimate or would like an appointment, please contact us on 0419 968 337 or click here to contact us online.
