2. Three Step Sedation & Peaceful Home Euthanasia
In some situations with agressive pets, an oral sedation to be given prior to Dr. Susan's arrival, may be prescribed a few days before hand. For this to be organized, please allow 3 days between your initial inquiry & your appointment.
3. After Care Services
Notes regarding our compassionate transportation services:
The cost of compassionate transportation of your pet afterward is included in the cost of "After Care Services" for all cats, and for dogs weighing under approx 100 lbs, if you can help by arranging the following:
IF your dog is between 30 lbs and approx 90 lbs: we ask that you arrange for a strong, able bodied person who would be comfortable to help carry your pet’s “afterself” on a soft stretcher with Dr. Susan, to her vehicle, and to be available approximately an hour after our appointment begins.
If no one is available to help Dr. Susan with this aspect, OR, if your pet is over 90 lbs, we will arrange and coordinate with the Until We Meet Again (UWMA) Pet Memorial Center vehicle/driver to meet us directly at your home, Usually this is arranged for late morning to mid - day, week days or Saturday, however, other times can be arranged if better for your considerations.
Dr Susan can usually arrange to stay and assist the Until We Meet Again driver, shortly after our appointment, so that only one person from UWMA is needed regarding a large pet.
On occasion if Dr. Susan cannot stay, (eg. if a family wants extended time between her visit and transportation), and a family member or friend also cannot help UWMA, then two staff people from UWMA would be needed, with the associated cost as below.
Regarding arranging for the services of the Until We Meet Again staff and their vehicle when needed: We will coordinate and reserve their services, for the compassionate transportation of your pet to their memorial centre, when this additional help is needed (as explained above). This will involve one of the following additional costs, as set by Until We Meet Again. The appropriate cost will be added to our invoice, and paid for at the time of our housecall:
$75.00: for daytime Mon-Sat, if one person needed, or
$175.00: evenings or Sunday, one person, or
$125.00: if two staff people need to come, eg giant breed, daytime Mon - Sat., or
$225.00: for a giant breed and/or if 2 staff people required from Until We Meet Again, evenings and Sundays.
Transportation arrangements best suited for your situation are best discussed, clarified, and planned, after receiving your question form information, completed as best as possible and sent by email or fax.
