How In-home Pet Euthanasia Works

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. Oftentimes, just seeing your pet at peace and sometimes pain-free for the first time in months can help bring closure and peace to all family members involved in their pet’s end-of-life care. For those who need support with aftercare, the veterinarian can assist with transportation and cremation services.

Benefits of at-home euthanasia may include:

Comfort and Familiarity: One of the primary benefits of at-home pet euthanasia is that it allows pets to remain in a familiar and comfortable environment during their final moments. Being in a place they know well can help reduce stress and anxiety for the pet, providing them with a sense of security and peace.

Reduced Stress: Traditional veterinary clinics can be stressful environments for both pets and their owners. The presence of unfamiliar smells, sights, and sounds can cause additional anxiety during an already difficult time. By choosing at-home euthanasia, pets can avoid these stressors, allowing them to pass away peacefully in a calm and serene setting.

Privacy and Control: At-home euthanasia provides pet owners with greater control over the entire process. They can choose the timing, location, and who is present during this deeply personal moment. This level of privacy allows for more intimate goodbyes and the opportunity to grieve without feeling rushed or self-conscious.

Minimized Travel: For pets with limited mobility or those experiencing pain, traveling to a veterinary clinic can be uncomfortable or even impossible. At-home euthanasia eliminates the need for transportation, ensuring that pets do not have to endure unnecessary discomfort during their final moments.

Supportive Environment: At-home euthanasia often allows for more time with the veterinarian, as there is no pressure to quickly move through appointments due to clinic schedules. This additional time allows for open discussions about end-of-life options, emotional support for the family, and addressing any concerns or questions. The veterinarian can provide guidance on aftercare options, including cremation or burial, and offer resources for coping with grief.

In-home Pet Euthanasia Costs

The starting price of in-home euthanasia starts at $475 in Santa Clarita, CA. 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.
