It is never easy to say good-bye to a loved one. It is even harder, sometimes, to have to do so outside of the home in an unfamiliar environment.
We are able to help ease your pet's suffering or pain in the comfort of your own home. You will be able to be there with them while they pass into the realm of peace and forever happiness.
If you pet has already passed at home, we also offer transportation and cremation only services.
Pets MUST have been seen by a primary or emergency veterinarian within the last year and quality of life has been discussed. Medical records MUST be received via email prior to scheduling.
We do not perform examinations, make medical diagnoses nor prescribe medications under any circumstances.
Restrictions- I am unable to serve the following areas:
· Areas in southern Maryland BEYOND, but not including Huntingtown and Bowie
· The District of Columbia
· Areas south or west of Fairfax county on Saturdays or during weekday traffic
How do I know when it is time?
The answer is not always as easy as we expect or hope it to be.
We can help guide you through this decision.
What is the process?
The process includes an initial intramuscular injectable sedation using a pain tranquilizer- this may sting a little and cause the pet to jump or chatter. When the pet is comfortable, we will shave one or two limbs that will be used to access the veins for the last 1-2 injections. This whole process usually takes about 15-30 minutes total.
Cremation and Burial Options, Costs
Between at-home, group and private cremation, your wishes can be fulfilled.
Ashes for private cremation services can be mailed directly to your home or for pick up at your primary veterinary's office during normal business hours.
Both paw and nose prints displayed in a shadow box are available.
We only accept exact CASH or personal CHECK/MONEY ORDER remitted to Murphy Veterinary Services.
We do NOT use any money transferring service (ie. Cash app, Venmo).
