"Price is what you pay.  Value is what you get"
Warren Buffet

Discussing price at a time like this is a difficult thing.  We promise we will provide you with the best value in this difficult time.  One cannot put a price on caring and compassion, but caring and compassion is what we are about.

Euthanasia (only):  $445in home euthanasia

*Please note that the above is the cost of the visit to your home and the euthanasia only.  It does not include travel fees (when applicable), cremation services or any other aftercare.  See below for applicable travel fees, cremation services fees, Hospice care, Quality of Life visits, Emergency fees, etc...

Euthanasia with Communal Cremation:  $545

For details on the communal cremation see the Aftercare page on this website.

Euthanasia with Private Cremation:  $780

For details on the private cremation procedure, please visit the Aftercare page on this website.  Your pet will be cremated separately (partitioned) and ashes will be hand-delivered to you by us or by Peaceful Paws depending on your location (no third party courier).  Please note that there are several pets in the cremation chamber, but that each pet is clearly compartmented and you are assured to receive your own pet's ashes and none other.  You will receive a complimentary paw print courtesy of Peaceful Paws.

Euthanasia with Individual cremation:

Your pet will be alone in the cremation chamber.  Your pet's ashes will be hand delivered to you by us or by Peaceful Paws just as in the Private Cremation and you will receive a complimentary paw print from Peaceful Paws.  Please note that  for receiving your pet's ashes, the only difference between the private and the individual cremation is that in the case of the Private, there are other pets in the large cremation chamber, but they are clearly compartmented, therefore, you are assured to receive your own pet's ashes back in both case.  The individual is more costly because your pet is alone in the large cremation chamber.  However, it makes no difference regarding receiving your pet's ashes. 

A quote will be provided on request

Individual cremation with viewing:

Your pet will be alone in the cremation chamber and you will view your pet going into the cremation chamber.  You may wait until the cremation process is completed and leave Peaceful Paws with your pet's ashes on the same day.  You will also receive an extra complimentary paw print.

Other Fees

Cancelled appointments are subject to a cancellation fee if reasonable notice is not given.

We understand that sometimes, an appointment may extend beyond a normal visit time.  We are dedicated to your family's comfort and peace of mind at a time like this.  It has happened that some family members were not able to arrive on time and that Dr Forslund had to wait up to an hour or more for the entire family to be gathered.  It has also happened that families needed extra time to grieve or spend more time than usual at the time of the euthanasia, in between the steps of the procedure or to say their goodbyes after the euthanasia. The average appointment takes approximately 45 min to an hour and a half.  We will never rush you but please be advised that an extended consultation fee may be applicable for longer than usual visits. 

Methods of Payment

The methods of payment accepted are cash or check.  Checks are made payable to "Home Pet Euthanasia".
