Euthanasia - $280
Euthanize a pet in the comfort of your home.
The decision to euthanize a pet is not one to be taken lightly. It is a unique and compassionate final act of love that we can give to a pet who is suffering, or who has a limited quality-of-life.
Our veterinarian will spend up to an hour in your home and during that time will give your pet a sedative to relieve any pain or anxiety they may feel. A medication will then be given to help your pet pass peacefully. A paw print keepsake is provided at no additional fee and a hair clipping can be done at no charge, if desired.
You may handle your pet's body care or you can choose to have Pet Quietus assist by choosing one of the cremation options below.
Aftercare - $140-360
Pet Quietus provides the following options for taking care of your pet after euthanasia:
You handle your own pet's aftercare - No charge
Communal Cremation - $140
Pet Quietus handles the aftercare including transportation and communal cremation, no ashes are returned to you.
Private Cremation - $210 - $360
Pet Quietus handles the aftercare including transportation and private cremation (only your pet is in the cremation unit with no co-mingling of ashes),
Ashes are double-bagged and placed in an elegant wood box urn with a personalized nameplate. Wildflowers for planting and memorialization along with a personalized cremation certificate are included.
Ashes are available for pickup at Corpus Christi Pet Memorial Center at 1534 Holly Rd. on the corner of Holly and Greenwood.
Hand-delivery of ashes - $75

If you do not want an urn and prefer only ashes for spreading, burial or to place in an urn of your choosing, please ask our phone specialist for these details.
Quality of Life Consult - $280
Schedule a 1 hour consultation to assess your pet's quality-of-life before making a decision about euthanasia.
We will discuss and work through a Quality of Life (QOL) scale to provide a more objective look at how your pet is thriving, or not. Continued monitoring of symptoms and/or a decision about additional comfort care measures can be made at that time. This visit can also include humane euthanasia, at no additional charge, if it is decided that your pet's quality of life is poor and not treatable.
You can continue to utilize this scale to monitor either a decline or improvement in your pet's daily life. This can be part of helping you know when the time to say goodbye is near.
