When the time is right…

The decision to euthanize your beloved pet is one of the most difficult you will ever have to make. Unfortunately, only you can make the final decision, because you know your pet better than anyone else.

Making that decision is a difficult one, but we can help walk you through the process so that your pet will receive compassionate care until the very end.

The decision to euthanize your beloved pet is one of the most difficult you will ever have to make. Unfortunately, only you can make the final decision, because you know your pet better than anyone else.

Making that decision is a difficult one, but we can help walk you through the process so that your pet will receive compassionate care until the very end.

Emotional distress is the most difficult aspect of end-of-life suffering to deal with. Animals have an acute sense of what is happening. As with people, your pet would much rather pass surrounded by the people they love and in a home they love.

If you have decided your pet needs to be euthanized at home and you live in our service area (Overland Park, Leawood, Prairie Village, Shawnee, Lenexa or Olathe), call us at (913) 912-2319.

Our service hours are between 7 am – 7 pm, 7 days a week. If you call after hours, you should leave a message. We will get back to you promptly at the start of the next day.

We can typically arrive at your home within four hours of your call.

If you are not sure, you can call us, and we will assist you in making your own decision as to what is best for your pet. We understand how difficult this is for you, and we promise to show you the same compassion and empathy we would have for pet members of our own family.

We provide in-home euthanasia for $250 – $300 .

We will also ask if you want us to take care of the mortuary service (cremation) after your pet has been euthanasia.

If you want cremation, we provide that as well for an additional fee.

Private Cremation: In a private cremation your euthanized pet is cremated at a crematory. The ashes are placed in a walnut urn with an engraved nameplate and sent to you. The cost of private cremation depends on the weight of the animal: $285 up to 49 pounds, $320 from 50 to 99 pounds, $355 from 100 to 149 pounds. For pets 150 pounds and up, you will need to get a quote from us.

Communal Cremation: In a communal cremation, the ashes are not returned, but are scattered by the crematory in their garden which is open to the public. The cost of communal cremation also depends upon weight: $135 up to 49 pounds, $170 from 50 to 99 pounds, $205 from 100 to 149 pounds. For pets 150 pounds and up, you will need to call us for a quote.

All you need to do is decide where in your home this would take place and what family members you would like present. Having a comfortable blanket or towel in place is recommended.

Upon arrival, our veterinarian will go over everything that will happen in the euthanasia process. Please feel free to ask any questions at any time during this visit. The process will not be rushed. It will be done at a pace that is comfortable for you, your pet and any family members present.
A sedation is normally used to ensure your pet is as comfortable as possible. The veterinarian will ask you if you are ready, and only then apply the euthanasia medicine. This medicine works rapidly, normally in seconds. Once your pet has passed, the veterinarian will let you know. After, you will be given as much time as you need.

If you have arranged for cremation, the veterinarian will then handle the transportation for our mortuary services.

Our entire purpose is to provide as compassionate, peaceful, comfortable and painless passing as possible for the pet, you and your family.
