How much does TenderHeart service cost?
Because every pet’s needs are unique, please call us for service pricing. We can arrange for single visit pricing or develop a more comprehensive plan that is right for you. We will try to provide financial assistance to those in need. In general:
The fee for an initial evaluation of your pet regarding end of life decisions and care options is in the $150-$250 range depending on the complexity of the case. This fee includes the home visit and consultation. Many clients have found a that taking advantage of this opportunity helps bring clarity and comfort to a difficult decision.
The fee for a home visit for euthanasia is $225-$275 depending in part on the needs of your pet and the time involved. This fee includes the home visit, consultation and euthanasia (gentle sedation and IV euthanasia). Additional charges for body transport and aftercare (cremation) will apply. See aftercare below.
For housecalls that are more than 10 miles from the Durango Library an additional travel fee of $20+ may be added.
An after hours fee of $50 will be added for services provided after 6pm and weekends and holidays.
Follow up visit fees and fees for specific hospice (comfort care) related therapies will be determined on a case by case basis. For complicated or lengthy hospice cases medical and other costs may be significantly more than basic care. We will discuss this with you at the time of our initial consultation. All fees are due and payable at time of service.
