Home Euthanasia Fee
Dawn Veterinary Care charges $300 for home euthanasia for appointments Monday-Friday 8:00 am-5:30 pm. Appointments after 5:30 pm and on weekends or holidays are $350.
If you have a pocket pet, please call Dr. Dawn for more information on the price. Please also call me if your pet is in need of help and you require payments or other considerations for fees. Together we can work something out if cost is an obstacle to home euthanasia, but I ask that you please discuss this with me before we schedule an appointment.
What does this include – This fee includes travel within Mount Airy, MD, and Frederick county, and it includes the sedation and euthanasia for a pet of any of the species that Dawn Veterinary Care provides home euthanasia for dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, rabbits, mini pigs, sheep, goats.
Please call Dr. Dawn if you have a pet of another species that needs end-of-life care.
What is not included – What is not included in the home euthanasia fee is additional travel and the cost of aftercare (cremation) services.
Please see our new Cost Estimate Form for help estimating fees.
