Last time a vet pts it cost me £140 but that was only because they deducted the cost of the actual injecting due to messing it up big time. So I would guess maybe £200 in all. Sorry to hear about your horse, it is always so hard.

Sorry to hear of your loss, in my experience the price can vary from £150 to £350 depending on vets practice. Cremation costs are very varied .

Yesterday I too put down two youngsters. Had the Knackerman put them down, then there would have been no cost beyond the incineration charge which is £240 each. As it was they both had to go together so there was my Vet's charge to call out and sedate both animals before they were shot. I didn't ask for a quote from the Vet as it was an irrelevance. I wanted an ethical end where neither was aware of what was happening to the other. It went well, considering.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Alec.
