In Home Euthanasia

Deciding whether or not to make the decision to euthanize can be very difficult.  It is made even more difficult by trying to decide on the right time.  We all want to find the perfect balance between not too soon and not too late.  Everyone has their own interpretation of this decision and the timing required. Dr. Croom has some tools that will help with the the decision making process.  We can also help you pinpoint what the most important steps for you are.  We understand that everyone struggles with making such difficult decisions and want to help you do that.

We also feel that for some pets having to go to the veterinary hospital or clinic for euthanasia may cause increased stress or discomfort.  We are happy to provide in-home euthanasia or palliated natural passing.

We work with Family Pet Mortuary in Turlock, 209-250-0114, to provide pick up and cremation services. With advanced notice, they will meet us at your home to transport your beloved pet to be cremated.  We also will gladly work with you to make whatever other arrangements you would like.

In Home Euthanasia services range from $300 to $350 depending on where you are located, day and time and what your plans are for the remains. Depending on the size of your pet, cremation prices range from $80-150 for cremation no ashes returned and $200-350 for private cremation with ashes returned.

PLEASE NOTE:  this is not an emergency euthanasia service. Planning ahead is very much appreciated. We do all that we can to accommodate your needs however, Dr. Croom is not always available on short notice.  Also please check the Hours page, under About Us, for dates that Dr. Croom will be out of town.
