Losing a pet is one of life’s hardest events. Let us help.
We are a Team helping the Tampa Bay Area with a pet passing or euthanasia for dogs and cats in the comfort of home.
What does Pet Loss at Home offer?
We offer end of life care for your pet using a network of professional, compassionate, and caring veterinarians.
What are the costs?
Includes a short discussion with the veterinarian, medication to ensure comfort, gentle euthanasia. The additional cost for the varied cremation services are detailed in the Aftercare Pricing section.
Includes a brief examination by the veterinarian, an assessment of your pet’s quality of life, and a custom treatment plan to help you care for your pet and monitor their condition.
Using phone or Zoom. our doctor will walk you through a Quality of Life assessment. This 30 minute conversation is valuable for any family considering hospice care, euthanasia, or simply wanting to understand the end of life process with their pet.
There may be an additional charge for extended travel, holidays ($50 – $100), pets over 120 lbs, appointments outside normal business hours when arranged (normal business hours are 9:00am – 5:00pm), aggressive pets, and special requests.
Holiday appointments can be accepted with approval. The following holidays incur a $100 fee when scheduled: Thanksgiving, Christmas Day & New Years Day. A $50 fee is incurred for 4th of July, Memorial Day or Labor Day.
With this option, your pet is cremated privately at a licensed crematory. The ashes are contained in a lovely urn with an engraved nameplate and will be returned to your primary care veterinarian within two weeks. They can also be made available directly from the crematory or mailed to your home or office.
This option is for families that don’t wish to have their pet’s ashes returned nor wish to bury at home. Pets are respectfully cremated with other pets at a licensed crematory and ashes are scattered in a private location.
Our doctor does not arrive with a vet technician. Therefore, if your family has elected cremation for a pet over 50 pounds, we may ask your assistance moving your loved one after euthanasia has been performed. If additional help is needed outside what is available in the home, we may request that the crematory come to assist us. In this case, an additional fee will be needed to cover their charge.
We are here to answer your questions every day, from 8 am – 5 pm. Appointments are scheduled throughout the week, please call for availability.
Sometimes pets take a turn for the worse overnight or in a short amount of time, so we do our best to accommodate same day appointments with a few hours notice, but cannot guarantee that.

We will also be taking the following precautions to ensure both you and our doctor remains safe during these pandemic time:
1. Minimizing contact is important, so this may be the only time you won’t get a hug from us! This is usually the most important part of our time with you, communicating our support via a hug or warm handshake, but we’re doing our best to minimize physical contact.
2. Our doctor will do his best to explain everything he can over the phone to minimize the time spent in close contact. This is counter-intuitive to what we usually do, and apologize ahead of time that we aren’t spending more time with you and your pet in person. Please feel free to ask any questions you have, any concerns, or anything else you’d like to discuss over the phone.
3. When scheduling an appointment, we will ask if you or anyone who plans to be at the appointment has had contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or if anyone experienced coughing or a fever of 100.0°F in the last 14 days.
4. Our doctor takes his temperature every morning to ensure he is safe to enter your home. Any doctor who has a temperature of 100.0°F or higher remains at home until their temperature returns to normal, they display no other symptoms, and are deemed safe to continue working, per CDC guidelines.
5. If possible, please consider the opportunity to meet with our doctor outside. This will help keep airflow to a maximum, reducing any potential exposure.
6. Our doctor will be wearing a mask but may or may not be wearing gloves or other PPE. Please share any specific questions or concerns prior to the appointment if needed.
7. We will be temporarily discontinuing hospice appointments at this time to help reduce the risk of exposure to our doctor.
