Cost no 1 putting the dog to sleep

Same as humans, if a dog passes, there are a number of price variables like performing the procedure in the office, at home, or through cremation. Most veterinarians provide at-home euthanasia services, and they travel to someone's home to put their pet to sleep, which costs between $85 to $125. The price depends on how far the home is located. The DEA license for the controlled drug is $250 per year. If a pet owner's request in-office euthanasia it costs $50 for low-income pet owners, the regular charge for owner-requested euthanasia is $150 per dog.


If pet owners want to preserve their pet's memory with ashes in an urn cremation is another affordable option for them. Some companies charge cremation fee according to weight of pet for example at $80 for dogs up to 30 pounds and ranging up to $165 for dogs 101 pounds and heavier. 

However, some companies also offer options to choose between private cremation and communal dog cremation. If a pet owner chooses private cremation, it allows the pet owner to keep the dog's ashes, costing an estimated $135 for an 80-pound dog. On the other hand if a pet owner goes with communal cremation, this is a cheaper option and it cost estimated at $80 for an 80-pound dog, the pet's ashes are disposed of by the crematory with other animals that have been cremated.
