Please read the message on the home page for new measures that make house calls again possible. For more information about what to expect before and during the appointment please read the post “Veterinary aid-in-dying at home during the summer of Covid-19”
- I will be booking appointments on a pet by pet basis. There are several factors to take into consideration to keep your pet comfortable and to keep everyone safe, so advance planning is necessary and last minute emergency calls will not be possible. Also I will only be able to offer one morning appointment and one afternoon appointment a day.
- My fee structure has changed. There is one fee for veterinary aid-in dying anywhere within a 30 minute drive of Kingston, from Napanee to Gananoque and north to Verona. The fee is $400 + HST. Outside of this travel zone, there is a travel fee calculated at $150/hr.
- If you wish for after care, I am able to make all arrangements for cremation. The fee will depend on your pet’s body weight and whether or not you wish to have their ashes returned to you.
You can contact me by phone or email, or by using the form below.
Ideally we will have a chance to speak on the phone so I have a clear picture of the sort of help that is needed, and so I can answer any questions you may have. However, coordinating times to talk can be tricky, so email can serve as a good introductory step, or allow us to arrange a mutually good time to talk.
You can leave me a message at any time, even in the middle of the night. I am not an emergency service so my phone ringer is not on and you will not wake me, but if I see your message first thing in the morning I can try to reach you before I begin my day.
If you do leave me a voicemail message during the day I may not have the opportunity to call you back until I have finished my appointments. Therefore I may not have a chance to reach you by phone until that evening or the next morning. Email can help here too. Providing me with your email address means that even if I am not able to talk right away I have the option to send a quick email back and let you know my availability to talk later. We may sometimes use this opportunity to answer preliminary questions or start the conversation about what appointment times I have available in the coming days.
