A Note from Dr. Meg:

If you are looking at this website, you are probably very concerned about your pet. One of the most often asked questions is "How do I know it is time to let go?"

There are several things to consider:

First, in consultation with your primary care veterinarian, can your pet get better?

Does your pet have any joy left in their life now? Think about what gave them the most pleasure two or three years ago ---walks? ---playing with toys or other pets? ---food and treats? Do they still enjoy those things now?

Are they in pain, or suffering?

This is not as easy to determine as we would like because dogs and cats hide their pain and illness; you may wish to ask your primary care veterinarian about your specific pet's condition.

I would be happy to discuss the case with you in a free phone consultation. (714) 501-7318


Fees range from $395 to $895, depending on the size of the pet and your choice of aftercare:

No aftercare --- pet's remains are left with you.

Communal aquamation --- pet's ashes are scattered at sea.

Private aquamation --- pet's ashes are returned to you.
