Rob & Karen Twyning: Founders of Pet Loss At Home

“Dr. Twyning-Thank you for teaching me how to celebrate life though death. You opened my eyes and gave me a gift that will be with me forever. You are an amazing person with great skill and soul. With much gratitude, Beaumaris’ Mom”

Pet Loss At Home started in 2002 as one veterinarian…me, Dr. Karen Twyning. At that time, I was profoundly impacted after honoring the wishes of a client to euthanize her elderly cat at home. The experience was so very peaceful and beautiful, it is fixed in my memory. I left that home wondering, “Why is ANY pet euthanasia EVER performed in a cold, sterile clinic?!!!” Since then, I’ve been on a mission.

Now, with the help of my husband, Rob, we’re making home euthanasia service much more widely available nationwide. Pet Loss At Home works with mobile veterinarians who have a special sensitivity for helping families navigate end-of-life care. These amazing vets feel it is their calling to provide private pet euthanasia in the comfort of home. We’re working hard so that soon, every pet owner will know about the option of home euthanasia and soon, every city nationwide will have gentle veterinarians readily available for when the time comes to say goodbye…in the comfort and privacy of home.

ChaseChicago, Illinois: Thank you Dr. Karen Twyning for the loving care and kindness you showed to our Chase. We are so grateful that with your help we were able to give him the graceful and beautiful parting he deserved.  Your grace, gentleness, and care were palpable at such a precious time. This service is a Godsend. We wish you well and many blessings to you.

If you need help finding home pet euthanasia service in an area that we do NOT yet cover

OR during times our local vet is over-booked with appointments:

(1) Visit these home euthanasia directories:

(2) Call vet clinics in your area and ask for house call service. Insist on sedation first.

(3) Call vet clinics in your area and ask for names and phone numbers of mobile vets. Insist on sedation first.

(4) Ask your clinic vet to sedate your pet in the comfort and familiarity of your own vehicle in the hospital parking lot. Bring towels, blankets and pillows.

(5) Work with your local vet clinic or pet emergency hospital to obtain a comfort kit ($50). You may be able to sedate your own pet in the comfort of your own home. Once sedated, comfortable transport to the ER may be possible. This sedation can only be dispensed to you if the facility has seen your pet within the past year. A veterinarian-client-patient relationship (VCPR) is legally required. A vet clinic or emergency clinic cannot dispense medication to you if they have not done a physical exam on your pet recently.
