Greater quality of
life with more
flexibility & income


Own Your Schedule


You control when (and how much) you want to work. Whether you’re looking to hustle full-time or just pick up a few extra clients during a free afternoon or weekend, you determine the days and hours that you want to book clients.

Is In-Home Euthanasia the Right Fit for You?

To start offering in-home euthanasia on CodaPet, every veterinarian needs three things:


Compassion and empathy for pets and their owners


An active veterinary license in the State(s) you wish to operate


Access to suitable transportation to visit your client’s homes

Beyond those three non-negotiable, CodaPet can support you in obtaining all of the other supplies, drugs, and essentials that you’ll need Learn More .

In fact, we support a diverse group of veterinary professionals providing in-home euthanasia services in their communities, including:


Full- and Part-Time Clinical Veterinarians

We work with veterinarians looking to supplement their part-time clinical work, as well as vets – like Dr. Gary Hsia, a former 9am-6pm clinical veterinarian who transitioned to in-home euthanasia so he had the flexibility to spend more time with his children.


Mobile and Ambulatory Practice Owners

We work with veterinarians who are already providing mobile or ambulatory care – like Dr. Christine White, who (after 17 years of running her own practice) decided she wanted to beat the burnout and begin offering in-home euthanasia.


Emergency Room and Urgent-Care Vets

We work with emergency and urgent-care veterinarians – like Dr. Jenny Tovar, who continues to work part-time in general and emergency practice at a local animal hospital while growing her in-home euthanasia practice in her community.


Public Practice and Government Veterinarians

We work with veterinarians who’ve dedicated years to public service – like Dr. Karen Whala, who took a four-year hiatus from private practice to work in Food Safety and Inspection Services before launching her own in-home euthanasia business.


Full-Time Parents Rejoining the Workforce

We work with veterinarians who are balancing the realities of parenthood with the rewards of veterinary service – like Dr. Bethany Hsia, who worked at a full-time veterinarian before transitioning to a full-time mom offering in-home euthanasia.

Nothing but support, encouragement, and gratitude

Joining the Codapet team was not only professionally rewarding, but it was also an easy transition to being a part of an amazing organization. After deciding to add this service to my traditional clinical practice, it was just a short period of time before I was set up and comfortable performing in-home euthanasia. Codapet made it so simple to get started by providing very detailed materials and documents, along with videos, that provided an easy step-by-step process to get started. Any questions I had were quickly addressed and there was great support staff to help get me going. I was also able to shadow a couple local doctors that immediately made me more comfortable.Codapet has been a wonderful opportunity to work as an independent contractor, setting my own work hours, providing great economic opportunity, all while providing an extremely appreciated and rewarding service to pet owners. I would whole-heartedly recommend joining the Codapet team to any veterinarian considering entering this ever expanding area of vet medicine.
