Our Service

The kind way to end a beloved pet's suffering - At Home
Bowwout is a service is for owners who wish to have their dog or cat put to sleep by a kind, experienced veterinary surgeon in the familiar surroundings of home.


The vet, usually myself (Liz) arrives at your home, casually dressed and with no surgery smells! After being introduced to your pet I give him or her a sedative. We complete the necessary paperwork, and maybe have a cuppa, while we watch over your pet until the sedative takes full effect. They might be in your arms, or lying comfortably in their own bed, or in another favourite place, during this time, as he/she gradually becomes unaware of everything around them.

When the time comes we give the final injection. You choose whether or not to be present at any stage of the procedure.

Once the final injection has been given your pet usually will stop breathing within a minute.

At this stage I slip out of the room for a while to give you time alone with him/her.
Disposal of your petís body

After your pet has passed away there is what can be a difficult decision for some people; how to dispose of the body.
Some owners prefer to bury their pet. Others prefer cremation. In the case of cremation there are two options. In group cremation the body is cremated with other pets, and the ashes not returned. With private cremation your pet is cremated individually, and the ashes returned to you.

What you need to do
Just contact us by phone, text, WhatsApp or email, whichever you prefer.
All payments are made on the day of euthanasia.
The cost of euthanasia varies depending on where you live, it is agreed before the appointment is made.
The cost of cremation depends on whether group or private cremation has been chosen. We take the body on the day, and when the ashes are ready we meet you at an agreed place to return them.   Alternatively you can make private arrangements with a crematorium of your choice.

Please note that Bowwout is an At-Home Euthanasia Service only. For all other veterinary care please contact your primary veterinary practice.
