My husband and I had to say goodbye to our beloved Gomez last month. He was nearly 19 years old and was suffering from dementia, deafness and kidney disease. The decision was difficult as he was still having good periods of time-lying by a sunny window, etc. But at the advice of our vet, we decided that it was time-there we’re no cures for his ailments.
The veterinarian who came to our home was kind and compassionate as well as very patient. I believe she sensed that we had mixed feelings about our decision and even offered to let us cancel but we knew if it hadn’t been done that day, it would be soon.
I would highly recommend this service. Our cat was almost impossible to get to the vet under any circumstances and we did not want his last moments to be stressful. Gomez passed on while lying in his favorite chair.
