End of Life Services
Euthanasia is a difficult decision we all have to make in our fur family members lives. We believe that, regardless of the age, animals touch our hearts quickly and the decision to let them leave our side can be heartbreaking.
Fresno Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center provides euthanasia services 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. We allow family members to be with their beloved pet during the euthanasia and allow for private visiting time following. We will do our best to accommodate wishes during and after the procedure.
We work closely with the Fresno Pet Cemetery, providing cremation services (private and communal) to our clients. Typically, we receive private cremations back at our facility in 14 business days, depending on holidays. We will work diligently to ensure your pet is treated with the utmost respect throughout all aspects of euthanasia and aftercare.
All clients are given the option of receiving a clay paw print at no additional charge. This creates a life-long keepsake that dries within 48 hours. A small area next to the paw print is available to place your favorite picture of your family member. You are able to request an additional paw print for $30.00.
Paws of Remembrance donates a portion of their yearly profits to non-profit organizations that promote the safety and well-being of companion animals.
The cost of euthanasia, regardless if you and your family would like to be present, is $115.00. Private or communal cremation is additional to the $115.00. There is no need to call prior to your decision, as we will try our very best to accommodate you and your family immediately. We do appreciate phone calls ahead, so our technical staff can be ready to meet your needs more readily.
