It’s a Final Act of Caring

Dr. Laura in COVID PPE - read our statementWe are dedicated to making your pet’s last moments peaceful and comfortable. Through the years we have become advocates for Home Euthanasia, providing pets and their families with a peaceful, comfortable passing in familiar surroundings.

Many local vets recommend Journeys Pet and we are the only vets in Dane county to provide in-home euthanasia exclusively. Hundreds of online reviews and client endorsements are available for you to help make your choice.

*Due to covid-19 we have limited same-day availability & are scheduling up to 2-3 days in advance.

Please read our COVID-19 statement on our contact page.

“We need help now”

If your home is within 1 hour of Madison, WI and you and your pet have an immediate need for an in-home euthanasia (we are currently not scheduling appointments further out than 48 hours during Coronavirus), please call us. We would like to discuss your pet’s situation as soon as possible. The earlier in the day you call (starting at 8am), the more availability we may have on short notice.

We understand that sometimes a need for euthanasia arises quickly, and we will do our best to be at your home quickly; but we may need to refer you to a local emergency clinic if we cannot get to your home in an appropriate time frame for your pet’s needs. Due to the pandemic we sometimes have limited same-day availability. We appreciate your patience and understanding, and we are always here to help you navigate end-of-life for your pet.

“We might need you in the upcoming weeks”

Unfortunately, our pet’s health can and often does deteriorate as they approach the end of life. As you and your vet recognize a decline in your pet’s well-being, we recommend that you occasionally use our JOURNEYS Quality of Life Scale quiz to track aspects of your pet’s life. It will help you assess changes to their overall comfort and happiness.

We offer many articles to help you plan for that inevitable day.
