Once we receive your appointment or consult request (above), we will get back to you with our available dates/times within your requested timeframe.  To book your preferred appointment or consult, we just need: 

A.  Your CREDIT CARD information (card #, exp date, csc #, & billing zipcode).  Note:  You can simply text us a picture of the front and back of your credit card to book your appointment.  Easy!

All appointments/consults are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Please text or call 530-306-5823 with the information requested above (text preferred).  

​​For more information on our booking, cancellation, and change policy, please see below. 

It's always best to contact Dr. Sara's office a few days in advance of your preferred appointment date/time.   That reduces the amount of stress on you and your pet minimizing the need for an emergency visit.

*  A $50 non-refundable reservation fee will be charged at the time of appointment booking. The remainder will be charged within 24 hours of your appointment.  If you need to postpone/change your appointment, we will apply the $50 reservation fee to one future appointment booked and completed within 30 days of your original appointment provided you contact us at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment.  Appointments cancelled, postponed or changed with less than 24 hours notice will forfeit the reservation fee and will be charged one-half of the remaining appointment fee.  Appointments cancelled, postponed or changed the same day of the appointment will forfeit the reservation fee and will be charged the remaining (full) appointment fee.  For cancellations, the full cremation fee, engraving fee and/or paw print fee (if any/all) will be refunded to you (usually) within 2-3 business days on your credit card.

If Dr Sara encounters a snow/ice/gravel/dirt/mud/rutted road without being advised to bring her 4WD vehicle, or if the road is impassable or requires snow chains, or if any of the attendee(s) are symptomatic or sick, or if the attendee(s) refuse to wear a medical-grade mask, or perform the euthanasia in an open air setting, or if the pet is reactive, fractious (i.e. growls) or is aggressive, she will return to her office (pre-euthanasia) and you will forfeit the reservation fee and 100% of the appointment fees.  Please let us know in advance if any of the above apply as it's not worth risking your pet's peaceful passing, reservation and appointment fees, or anyone's health and safety.  Thank you!

Sorry for still requiring medical-grade MASKS (e.g. N95, blue surgical, etc) to be worn by all parties when the euthanasia is performed INSIDE the home.   But, my Office Manager and husband (Craig) just had open heart surgery.  As such, I continue to be extra cautious  so as not to bring something home to him (e.g. cold, flu, covid, etc) during his recovery.  Thank you for your understanding!

Note: You can take your mask(s) off in between the initial sedation and euthanasia shots and I will wait outside.  That will give you some special time to love on your pet and say your goodbyes without being masked.  Masks are not required (optional) if the euthanasia is performed outside the home (e.g. backyard, patio, gazebo, etc).    

Note: If you do not have medical-grade masks available, we can provide them to you "if" we know in advance how many you need.   Just let us know :-)
