Discussing price at a time like this is a difficult thing.  Warren Buffet says:  "Price is what you pay.  Value is what you get."
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.

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

We prefer cash or check, but credit cards are also welcome if it makes things easier for you.  Checks are made payable to "Home Pet Euthanasia".
We accept Master Card, Visa, Discover and American Express credit cards.
