WE CANNOT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW DIFFERENT WE ARE THAN LEAVING YOUR PET WITH THE VET AFTER EUTHANASIA. IF YOUR PET COULD DECIDE, THEY WOULD CHOOSE OUR CREMATION EVERY TIME. WE HOLD PETS TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS, THEY ARE TREATED LIKE OUR OWN FAMILY IN OUR CARE.
Euthanasia by private practice licensed veterinarian: From $310.00 At your home Hennepin & Ramsey County – Add $100.00 if outside that area.
A wonderful and gentle fully licensed veterinarian will be arranged to come to your residence and perform the euthanasia on site. You, your pet, your family can be kept in a comfortable environment for what will be a very sad and personal experience. You may also wish to have the euthanasia performed at our location. We can also arrange for the veterinarian to perform it in our family room. If you have a family vet who would like to perform the euthanasia at our facility they can do so as well. The appointment takes lasts about 45 minutes. Before the vet leaves, they will make a clay paw print impression for you.
The veterinarians who performs the euthanasia, do so under their own practice, they are fully licensed with the state of MN and WI to do so. They are not employees of Pet Cremation Services of Minnesota. Payments for arranging an appointment with a veterinarian are passed on to the veterinarian who performs the euthanasia service or consultation. Pet Cremation Services of Minnesota staff is not performing a veterinary service or advertising that our staff is performing a veterinary service. PCS staff can be at your home immediately or at your choosing after the euthanasia has been performed or you may transport your pet yourself to our facility in Edina. Pet Cremation Services of Minnesota is not a Veterinary Clinic nor does it claim to be one.
Families can either then take their time and bring their pets in to our office, or we can arrange for your pet to be transported back to our office. Once at our office, our crematory is on site and could begin immediately totally 100% Private. *Transportation & Cremation are separate items, not included in the cost of euthanasia. The veterinarian who performs the euthanasia will have their own authorization and consent form to sign.
