Contact us if you need help considering your Quality of  Life score or if you already know that now is the “right time” to let go. The quickest way to reach the vet on call is to call. We respond to email messages as soon as we are able, but since we are frequently traveling, this may not be until the end of the business day.

Map of our service area

We typically schedule appointments Monday – Friday at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm and on weekends at 10am, 12pm and 2pm.

We can sometimes schedule a same day appointment if we have an available spot open and we hear from you early in the day.

Since there are no guarantees of scheduling a same-day appointment, we encourage families to set up an appointment a day or two ahead of time.

Our doctors will always give you a personalized quote based on your location, size of your pet, and aftercare wishes. It might also help you to read our article “The Price of Pet Euthanasia, the Cost of Waiting.”

Euthanasia Fees are based upon the distance traveled, the services requested, and the size of the pet. Price includes sales tax. If you live in our service area, try the estimation form below. If you would rather call or email us we will need your pet’s approximate weight to give you a proper estimate.

Our team is committed to co-creating a safe, peaceful environment for our patients, clients, and staff.

Aggressive or abusive behavior will not be tolerated.

Examples of unacceptable behavior include, but are not limited to:

  • Physical harassment and assault
  • Verbal harassment and abusive language
  • Offensive sexual language or acts
  • Threats of any kind
  • Failure to respond to staff instructions

There is zero tolerance for all forms of aggression. If an incident occurs, we reserve the right to refuse or terminate services and withhold any refund for services already rendered. The decision to terminate services lies entirely within the discretion of the service-provider.

If you feel your services were wrongly terminated you may direct your concerns to journeyspet@gmail.com. Final discretion lies with the terminating staff member’s immediate supervisor.

As you answer the questions below, our total estimate will appear at the bottom.

Our doctors will personally take your pet to Memorial Pet Services. You may pick up your pet’s ashes at Memorial Pet Services in Madison, or we can arrange to have them shipped to your home. Cost for shipping and handling plus tax in Wisconsin is $33.76, out-of-state is $44.31.

A clay pawprint of your pet is included with all home euthanasia.
