What can you afford? I may be able to find a vet in your area, or another service, that will be able to help, but I need a price you're comfortable with, I need to know where you live (don't post it on the public forum, just send it via PM, and I'll post what I find). I don't want to put you at risk by asking you to post personal info on the site, and if you're not comfortable sending it to me, I understand.
I recently went through this, and I was shocked at the prices charged by different vets. We ended up paying $150 for the euthanasia, but we lucked out on the cremation, as my husbands cousin is in the business, and he did it for free.
But, depending on where you live, and the laws in your area, you should be able to bury your pet in your backyard.
I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm being very heartless in my answers. I feel like I am because I'm pointing out the money aspect, what to do, how to do it, and I'm not acknowledging how very hard this time is for you. I know it's not about the money, even though most of us can't afford to spend thousands to relieve our pets pain. I know what you're feeling now, most of us do, we've all lost beloved pets. They're family.
Whatever we can do for you, let us know. I wish I could help you with the finances, but our family is on a very tight budget as well, so that's simply not possible. But I can do some research, and I can help you find someone to help ease your girls suffering.
On a side note. The growling and the biting, that's pain. She's in pain, so much pain that she's going against her natural good nature, and she's lashing out. She has no other way to tell you how much it hurts.
It's time. I think you know it too. Let me know if you want my help. I'm here, even if you just want to talk, or want a shoulder to lean on. We all are. Okay?
