Goodbye at Home
Why In-Home Euthanasia
One of the most difficult things about owning a pet is facing the end of their life. Dogs and cats do not live as long as we do, so we end up dealing with the death of our best furry friends throughout our lives. To help ease the trauma of the loss, I provide at home euthanasia services for dogs and cats. Being at home with your pet at the end of their life is far more soothing than going to a busy veterinary clinic, where you have to witness the stress your pet goes through in that environment. At home euthanasia is a quiet peaceful time for you to be with your pet during his or her last moments. I don't rush my clients and allow them ample time to spend with their beloved pet before the actual euthanasia takes place. All pets are given a sedative to relax them before the euthanasia solution is given, and owners have those last few minutes to say goodbye. Owners are free to express their feelings in the privacy of their own homes, where they are surrounded with the compassion and empathy that I have to offer. Owners have the option of burying the pet themselves or I can handle the cremation arrangements. At home euthanasia is the best gift you can ever give your pet, where they can pass on surrounded by your love and the comfort of their home environment. I hope that when it comes time to say goodbye that you will consider giving your pet the gift of an at home euthanasia.
About MeSince relocating from Texas in 2009, I have helped hundreds of families in the greater Sacramento area say goodbye to their beloved pets. Because I do my own scheduling, I make my appointments far enough apart so that I am on time and can spend the time necessary for families to say goodbye their way. Also, since I provide all services myself, there is no anxiety about who will be coming to your home. I am available any time for phone or email consultations and understand the difficulties involved in making the decision to say goodbye. I am experienced, technically competent, and compassionate, and strive to make each family's experience as peaceful and untraumatic as possible. It is never a "good" experience to lose a beloved pet, but if I can leave you knowing that your pet left this world peacefully wihtout pain or fear, and that you have started the healing process, then I have accomplished my goal. Families are encouraged to be involved in each step of the process, from sedation to euthanasia to transport of the pet's body, because it helps bring closure. Anything you want to do during our time together is fine: I have had families perform ceremonies where pets are laid on rose pedals, to releasing balloons as a symbol of the spirit's ascent, to waving sage over the pets body to send the spirit on it's way, to time of prayer after the pet has passed, and many more. You have the freedom to make your pets passing exactly as you want it to be: this is your final moment with your pet and I respect your wishes.
