You can take the animal to the clinic.

If the veterinarian goes to your home, you will be charged separately for travel expenses that do not correspond to the treatment as such. You may be charged a higher rate if it happens at night, emergency or on the weekend. It is also possible to leave the dog at the veterinarian after sacrificing it. The total costs of the whole process range between 100 and 600 euros, sometimes they can be more. It depends on where the euthanasia is performed, the required medication, the veterinarian and the wishes of the owner regarding the funeral. And here are all the expenses broken down:

The activity of euthanasia costs at least 19,24 euros.

For medicines usually, spend between 20 and 50 euros.

The sedatives cost between 10 and 20 euros.

If after the procedure you leave your animal at the veterinarian, you are charged for the removal of the body between 20 and 30 euros.

The price of the procedure increases during the weekend and at night by 50 percent.

Travel costs are at least 8.60 euros and depend on the distance.

If you want your pet to be cremated, the price may increase as well. Cremation and urn cause additional costs, depending on the weight of the animal the average price is between 100 and 300 euros.

The price is determined by the rate program that veterinarians have. In addition to euthanasia, the price of travel and surcharges for the time spent working are covered by the law. Each veterinarian can double or triple the price depending on the effort. Therefore, it is worth comparing prices of different veterinary clinics.

Bury the animal

If you wish, you can bury the animal yourself. However, there are some rules you should know before you get to it: for example, it is forbidden to bury pets in the woods. However, you can bury your furry friend in your garden. You do not need a permit for small animals, but for larger animals, you will need it.

In addition, the animals must be buried at least half a meter below the ground, must not have died due to reportable diseases and must be one or two meters from the public roads.

This is undoubtedly one of the most complicated moments since facing the last goodbye is as complicated as when you lose a loved one.

These are some reasons to perform euthanasia

As a general rule, a serious illness or a serious injury such as heart problems leads to the need to perform euthanasia. The owner of the animal can decide to end his suffering and thus the dog can stop feeling pain unnecessarily.

Of course, it is a very difficult decision to make for any animal-loving person but it makes more sense to end the pain of the fast dog than to let it die in agony.

Before practicing euthanasia

The veterinarian will be the person who decides if it is positive to accompany the animal at this time.

Our recommendation is to be clear that if an animal has a serious and incurable disease, practicing euthanasia is salvation.

Before letting the animal suffer, it makes sense to cause a quick and painless death. The owners of the dog have the opportunity to make the last minutes of the animal more beautiful with certain details:

Pet your four-legged friend while they sleep.

It is better to practice euthanasia in your own home because it is a place known to the animal.

Stay with your pet when it is slaughtered.

Put on some quiet music, it will help you all.

You can put the dog on his favorite blanket or put his most special toy at his side.
