The charge for a home euthanasia with Journey's End is on the chart below.  If Journey's End handles your pet's aftercare, there will be a discount on the cost of both services together.  This pricing covers a radius of 15 miles around my home base, using Google maps.  For your calculations, please use Merrimack Middle School, 31 Madeline Bennett Dr., 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, and a Clay Paw memento baked, painted, and personalized for your pet.

     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 several urns included in the private cremation price, and others are available for purchase through Final Gift.   Please see their website at www.finalgift.com.
