AFTERCARE PRICING

Private Cremation
Pets up to 39 pounds$230
Pets 40 - 99 pounds$290
Pets 100 - 149 pounds$315
Pets 150 - 200 pounds$350

With this option, your pet is cremated privately at a licensed crematory. The ashes are contained in a lovely wooden urn and will be returned to your primary care veterinarian within two weeks. They can also be made available directly from the crematory or mailed to you.

Communal Cremation
Pets up to 39 pounds$175
Pets 40 - 99 pounds$225
Pets 100 - 149 pounds$250
Pets 150 - 200 pounds$275

This option is for families that don't wish to have their pet's ashes returned nor wish to bury at home. Pets are respectfully cremated with other pets at a licensed crematory and ashes are scattered in a serene garden at a private location.

Additional Aftercare Fees

To best honor your personal space, our doctors do not arrive with a vet technician.  Therefore, if your family has elected cremation for a pet over 30 pounds, we may ask your assistance moving your loved one after euthanasia has been performed.  If additional help is needed outside what is available in the home, we may request that the crematory come to assist us.  In this case, an additional fee will be needed to cover their charge. 

Availability

We are here to answer your questions every day, from 6am - 10pm. Appointments are scheduled throughout the week, please call for availability.

Sometimes pets take a turn for the worse overnight or in a short amount of time, so we do our best to accommodate same day appointments with a few hours notice, but cannot guarantee that.

If this is a medical emergency, please contact your local veterinarian or one of the emergency clinics listed in the Local Resources section.

Meet the Doctor

Let us introduce you to the amazing hospice veterinarian in your area!

Dr. Kallie

Kallie Sesti

I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but raised as a small town Mississippi girl with big dreams of becoming a veterinarian one day. I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian since I was a pre-teen. I loved animals and wanted to spend my life helping them in some way. I began my veterinary career by cleaning kennels at the age of fifteen and continued to learn about veterinary medicine by working relevant jobs throughout high school and a few summers in college. It was during this time that I witnessed first hand the incredible strength of the human-animal bond. I graduated undergrad from Mississippi State University with a B.S., Biological Science Major, Magna Cum Laude. Then was blessed to join the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine to continue the education I had dreamt about for so many years.

Upon graduation, I accepted a general practice veterinary position in Memphis, TN. One short year later, I returned to my hometown of Madison, MS, and have offered general practice relief veterinary services around the greater Jackson area for over 10 years. I love being able to connect with and educate families on responsible pet ownership. It’s a blessing to watch and grow close with every family through this amazing journey. Pets are family and they should be treated as such. I joined Lap of Love because I believe every creature deserves to leave this life with kindness and dignity, and I feel honored to be given the tremendous responsibility to provide that for my patients. 

In my spare time, I am a crazy craft lady. I love to make (or attempt) anything that catches my eye on Pinterest! My husband and I stay quite busy raising our two amazing boys and our two fluffy dogs, who enjoy country living just as much as the kids.
