Most of our clients are surprised at how reasonable the charges are for a home visit. However, because of the
costs associated with traveling to your home, the fees may be higher than those charged by your regular
veterinarian. Every situation is unique so, the exact cost for services will depend on a variety of factors, such as:
- Your location
- The weight of your pet
- Need for and type of aftercare desired
- Timing of appointment (e.g. Weekday, Saturday, or Evening)

Aftercare Pricing: (all charges are in addition to the appointment fee)
Rainbow Bridge is proud to partner with Pets at Peace in San Ramon to provide your family with the highest
quality, compassionate aftercare. While you are welcome to make your own arrangements for cremation or burial
of your pet, if you would like our help in caring for your pet's body after the procedure, we will gently and
respectfully transfer your pet to the Pets at Peace crematory. Together we offer the following options:

Private Cremation:
With this option, your pet will be cremated individually (your pet is the only pet in the cremation chamber). Your
pet’s cremains (ashes) will be returned in a beautiful, cedar urn with his/her name on an engraved acrylic
plaque. Pets at Peace uses a specially designed
tracking system for identifying and tracking your pet. You can be
assured that only your pet’s cremains are returned to you. Price includes pet transfer to the crematory,
urn, cremation certificate, and pick up in San Ramon. A wide variety of specialty urns, other memorial products,
and shipping of cremains are available for an additional fee.
~ $225 for pets under 20 pounds
~ $275 for pets 20-74 pounds
~ $325 for pets 75-99 pounds

Communal Cremation:
If you are looking for a less expensive option, your pet can be cremated along with other pets. The cremains are
not returned to you, but are privately transported and spread in the beautiful Sierra mountains.
~ $100 for pets under 20 pounds
~ $150 for pets 20 - 99 pounds

(Contact us to discuss options for pets 100 pounds or over)

Payment Options:
Cash or checks (made payable to Dr. Anthony Smith) are preferred. If you would like to pay via credit card (Visa,
M/C, American Express), this can be arranged as long as you notify us in advance of the appointment. If you
prefer, we can also arrange payment prior to the appointment through PayPal or Venmo.
