Through CodaPet, pet parents can easily book in-home pet euthanasia with a compassionate and licensed veterinarian. Prior to the appointment, the veterinarian connects with the family to address any questions or concerns they might have. At the appointment, the veterinarian assists the family by going over the diagnosis and applying a quality-of-life assessment to objectively assess the pet’s health and ensure there is no uncertainty about the need for euthanasia.
The visit takes, on average, 45 minutes. Pet parents have a window of time to be with their pets privately before and after the euthanasia procedure if desired. As a pet parent, you are never truly ready, but your veterinarian will only proceed with the process once your pet is peaceful and relaxed.
For those who need support with aftercare, the veterinarian can assist with transportation and cremation services.
The starting price of in-home euthanasia starts at $475 in the SCV. Aftercare and cremation price begins at $195 but varies depending on factors such as the driving distance, the pet’s size and the option for private or communal cremation.
