     The charge for a home euthanasia with Journey's End is on the chart below.  This pricing covers a radius of 15 miles around my home base, using Google maps.  For your calculations, please use 178 Baboosic Lake Rd., Merrimack, NH 03054 as the starting point.  Please add $20 for each additional 5 miles for time and gas.  The basic charge includes the home visit by Dr. Sernik, sedation, the actual euthanasia, biohazard disposal of the needles, an ink paw print on a sympathy card, extra ink prints, and a clay pawprint.

     PLEASE NOTE: The euthanasia prices are based on the pet's HEAVIEST weight.  For example, if your pet weighed 55 lbs and now weighs 45, the drugs used will be for a 55 lb. dog.  It is important to use enough sedation and euthanasia drugs to make the process peaceful, painless, and effective for your special friend.  Aftercare prices are based on the pet's CURRENT weight. 

     The charges for aftercare depend on your choice.  You can bury your pet at home at no charge.  Options offered by Journey's End include communal cremation (more than one pet cremated together), and private cremation (only your pet in the crematory, with ashes returned to you in a nice urn).  There is a choice of four urns included in the private cremation price.  Ashes may be returned via UPS signature required or picked up from Journey's End in Merrimack. Dr. Sernik's assistant Annie will call you to inform you when your pet has been returned to us, and arrange for you to pick your pet up.

Extra urns may be purchased from Final Gift or found online. All of Final Gift's standard urns can be opened, so if an urn is purchased online, you will be able to transfer your pet's ashes. If you want additional copies of the four standard urns from Final Gift and to have them divide your pet's ashes, the cost is $50 each. Please let Dr. Sernik know this beforehand. Final Gift's website is www.finalgift.com

     Pets over 125 lbs. will be picked up directly by Final Gift. They charge $100 extra for this service during regular weekday hours, which is reflected in the prices listed. Please add $75 extra for nights and weekends. This price includes the return of your pet's ashes to your home. 

     Here are the prices for euthanasia and aftercare options offered by Journey's End: Please note that there may be an emergency fee of $50-$100 at Dr. Sernik's discretion for evening visits, early mornings, holidays, or emergencies that require moving other appointments to accomodate your pet.
