Are you wanting it cremated or disposed of?

If you don't mind driving to Decatur these folks are super cheap and great compassionate vets.

They also take appointments, so very little wait time.

Was final disposition discussed along with the price? Maybe the vet was assuming cremation.

Sorry to hear your pet is suffering, my thoughts are with you.

Animal shelters that offer low cost veterinary services are an option. We have used them a few times to euthanize pets.

Yes, the price was for sedation & euthanasia only.

Unfortunately, I had to put my 14 year old lab down last November, I used the below place and I think it was around 100.00 for the shots and final disposition.

Sorry about your dog

I had to have one of ours put down last year and took him to the Humane Society of North Texas over on Lancaster Ave and Riverside. It was free. Itís right next door to the East Lancaster Animal Hospital.

Sorry to hear sir. I know how tough that is.

I put my 13 year very sick Lab down. 9MM and it was just me and her. We talked. She is buried under my USA Flag in my backyard. Hardest Thing I Ever Did. Would not want her seeing a Vet to do this. I was so Sad. But I Made Peace With It and I Pray she did too. I miss you Skittles.
