Once you’ve decided that it’s time to finally say goodbye to your pet, our veterinarian will help walk you through the process so that you know what to expect.

In Home Euthanasia means that they get to spend their final moments relaxed in their home surrounded by loved ones.


Our doctor will meet your cat or dog and talk with you about the procedure. At this point, we’ll answer any questions you may have. Some people prefer to know as much as they can about the process, while others do better with less information. We suggest having your little companion on their favorite spot in a well-loved room. This helps ease their anxiety and provides a warm and comforting environment for their passing.


We don’t want your pet to be in any discomfort or feel any stress during the process. The doctor will give a sedative to your pet that will put him or her into a comfortable rest before proceeding.


After your pet is sedated, and you are ready, the doctor will administer the euthanasia solution. They’ll listen to your dog or cat’s heart and will let you know when he or she has passed. This is a peaceful, painless process for your pet.

In Home Euthanasia with Private Partitioned Cremation 

In partitioned cremation, your pet is cremated with other pets in the same cremation unit, but they are completely partitioned and separated. The cremation service has very stringent internal quality control procedures that are followed meticulously with each pet that is cremated. We return each pet in a lovely rosewood urn with a custom name tag, clay paw print of your pet, and a blooming wildflower memorial card. Remains will be hand delivered back to the owner in 2-3 weeks. If desired, please ask about urn upgrades.

Euthanasia with Individual Cremation ...... Please Inquire

The euthanasia process is the same as above. In the case of individual cremation, your pet is the only one in the cremation chamber. When choosing individual versus partitioned (private), there is no difference in receiving your pets remains. The individual cremation is more costly because your pet is the only one in the large cremation chamber. Individual cremation with viewings are available to owners. Please ask for more information.

Willed Body Donation For Aftercare

If interested, please inquire about W.A.V.E.- “Willed deceased Animals for Veterinary Education” at Western University of Health Sciences Veterinary School in Pomona, CA. This donation program is similar to human body donation for education that occurs at human medical schools. At commencement, your pet’s remains will be cremated based on your wishes of communal or private cremation (weight restrictions) at no cost to you. Please contact us if interested to find out if your pet is a candidate and to fill out additional paperwork for the school.

Wave Program-Willed Animal for Veterinary Education Donation Program

Fees for the WAVE program are cost of euthanasia plus $150 for transport/storage/coordination with the school, no cremation fee as the school will provide per the owner’s wishes.

Eligible pets must be less than 60 pounds and not have any diseases that are considered communicable to humans.
