Testimonials to help share others’ experiences

“Dr. Mendelsohn was incredibly sweet, informative, and patient with our boy. She explained each step and made sure our sweet cat wasn’t in any pain and went peacefully and quickly. Can’t recommend this service enough. Professional, kind, and empathetic for this tough time in our life.”

“I’m writing this review on the third year anniversary of my girl, Tessa’s passing.
I’ve been meaning to write a review all of this time but kept putting it off but never forgot how grateful I am to Dr. Carrie Moore.

Dr. Carrie was amazing. Let me start with the fact I was nervous about Tessa’s end and a stranger being there as Tessa was terrified of strangers. Dr. Carrie arrived timely, she was very soft-spoken, very soft in her presence, Tessa was able to leave without fear of the stranger that was helping her pass. I can’t express how much easier this made Tessa’s transition and made me that much more comfortable doing the dreaded.

Dr. Carrie was very understanding too. She went on my time frame, she waited for me to say it was time, and even then, before she did the initial injection, she verified I was okay with her helping Tessa pass. Tessa’s passing was painless and stress-free.

I highly recommend Dr. Carrie, she truly made a bad situation much easier and truly respected both Tessa and me.”

“I want to thank PET LOSS AT HOME for being the only organization in the Greater Houston area that includes services for Katy, out of the 7 I contacted that claimed they provided
these services in our area, Pet Loss At Home was the only one that actually included our location as “in area.”  This is concerning to me as I;ve been looking for an at home
palliative service for the last few weeks that later – when it was the time was appropriate – could also perform at home euthanasia. The first two referrals from our vet (who are
located less than a mile from our home) were listed on their website as servicing our area, but when contacted siad “we dont have a vet in your area at this time.”
I would also like to personally thank Dr. Carol Ong for the services she provided for Ivan yesterday, and her guideance she provided me over the phone each time I called this week
attempting to find a service that would come to our home as Ivan deteriorated over the last two weeks. She was very generous with her time, answering the phone personally each
time I called this week, and demonstrated Ivan’s comfort and care was her primary priority. She is excellent at what she does. I cannot express my gratitude to her.”

I lost so much of my heart on June 13, 2021 when the time came to let go, I just needed to say that Alicia was so great to come to our RV camp spot, Aries was truly in her happy place there with us, it meant so much to us being able to give her that comfort at the most difficult time. Aries had a wonderful life taken too early by cancer. As difficult as it was, the easy part was the final arrangements. So grateful for learning about your organization, all the time, care, & little extras put into what ya’ll do really did make such a painful situation a bit easier.
Thank you, The Robinsons

“Dr. Leverone kindness and professionalism got us through a very painful time when helping my 14 year old Tessie girl on her last day with us. Driving an hour to my home late at night so she wouldn’t suffer. Our heartfelt gratitude for what he did for her and his genuine sympathy for us.”

Thank you sir.

 

“I want to send a special thank you to Dr. Bender. She came and put my dog down the day after thanksgiving and was so caring. She got on the floor and introduced herself to my dog. She explained the entire process for us, asked if we had any questions. She gave us all the time we needed with him before he passed. She made sure he left this realm in the most dignified manor possible. We appreciate she came and did everything. Thank you again for making sure our angel is no longer in pain.”

Beloved Dog

Dear Laurelle,

Thank you so much for your kindness and compassion in gently sending our beloved girl on her way.  We so appreciate that her last moments were calm, peaceful, and full of love.  We miss her greatly but take comfort in knowing she had a great life and a serene ending.

Thank you for the card and flower seeds.  VCA was also notified of your excellent skill and compassion, which we will never forget.

Again, much heartfelt thanks,

Molly

RIP Molly – Oct 11, 2001 – Nov 13, 2021. The recent past wasn’t a lot of fun for you, but here is a picture from your happier days.
Many thanks to Dr Donna O’Leary who came to our house to help Molly on her way in the most compassionate manner possible

Dear Dr. Shields,

We wanted to reach out and thank you for helping us say goodbye to our sweet girl, Jane, last weekend.  We can’t imagine how tough a job that is, but your work is so appreciated – since June began showing signs of illness in early summer, she began showing signs of aggression when we’d take her to the vet – very unlike her, and limiting our ability to get the info we needed to help her.  When you came to our house and she wagged her tail, we knew she knew you were there to help and that she was ready to go.  Being able to say goodbye to her on our couch – her favorite place – was a true blessing – we know her last moments were so comfortable and stress free as possible and that she got the dignified and compassionate goodbye she deserved.  We were so lucky to have had almost 10 years, miles of hikes, tons of camping trips and other adventures with her.

Thank you so much. – Liz and Jason

Stella

“We are extremely grateful for the service provided by Dr. Cassie. Saying goodbye to our sweet girl Stella was so very hard. We had made our appointment and shortly realized we had to move the appointment immediately. Dr. Cassie was accommodating, so Stella did not suffer. We were able to have her at home and not the clinic she was terrified of. Dr. Cassie was compassionate and took our timeline as we struggled a bit to say goodbye. If you can do it at home, I highly recommend Pet Loss at Home.”

Bear

DR. DARDIN WAS SO NICE
SHE CAME THE DAY I CALLED AND THAT WAS ONE HARD CALL TO MAKE . BEAR, OUR 12 YEAR OLD AUSTRALIAN SHEPARD MIX WAS GETTING REALLY ILL FROM MANY COMPLICATED MEDICAL ISSUES . SO INSTEAD OF THE SUFFERING THE CALL WAS THE RIGHT ONE TO MAKE . WE THANK YOU FOR BEING SO PROFESSIONAL AND ARE RELIEVED OUR SWEET FUR BABY IS IN HEAVEN .

Dog

“This was a terrible emotional time, however I could not think of a better way for my dog to cross over. Amy was amazingly caring, and my baby boy passed peacefully in arms. I recommend them highly to anyone having to go through this difficult decision!”

Lab

“We had to say goodbye to our dear lab, today. She was very reactive and fear aggressive to other animals anf noises which made vet trips so stressful for her and us so we decided an in home visit would be best. Our girl ran up to Dr Carrie with her sister next to her side to say hello. She played with her new stuffy until the sedation kicked in and then slowly drifted off to sleep in the grass with us petting her. It was so, so hard to lose her, but the calm and peaceful way about her during the experience made it a little less painful. Thank you, Dr Carrie.”

Daisy

“Thank you Dr. Gail Larson for helping us say good bye to our dear Daisy. She was our Crazy Daisy and we needed her to have a calm and peaceful setting at the end. So happy you are part of this , much appreciated, service!”

Daisy will remain in our hearts forever!

Amicus

Dr. Danton,

Thank you so much for helping Amicus leave this world and for guiding us along the journey.  Amicus truly was at ease with you which made a huge impact on us.  Additionally, we are grateful for the thoughtful cards and seeds.  We appreciate you and you coming into our home to help us say goodbye to our best friend.

Love Jerica, Chris & Chama

Hoss

Thank you Dr. M’Risa Mendelsohn for your tender and loving care in helping our beloved Hoss pass peacefully and for helping our family through a horrible day. It hurts so bad to lose a pet but it is a great consolation that caring and dedicated vets such as yourself make it so your pet can pass peacefully at home surrounded by family. Thank you so much.

Oliver

“Dr. Cassie Schneller was a caring and compassionate practitioner who helped our beloved Oliver pass beyond his physical discomforts surrounded by his family. I highly recommend Pet Loss at Home when it is time to say goodbye to your own beloved pet.”

“Dr. Rachel was an angel. She made a difficult journey much more bearable. You could immediately tell that she GENUINELY cares for the families and fur babies that she is helping. She offered us and our baby peace. Thank you Dr. Rachel.”

Sammy

“We had a very difficult decision to make for our Sammy. Dr Rachel was incredible during a very difficult time for us. She was patient, kind and listened to us. Her genuine concern during this time was of great support to us. Then to receive a card from her a couple of days later was a wonderful gesture that we were not expecting. We hope that we never have to make this decision again (but with 3 dogs, there will come a time) but would not hesitate to call on Dr. Rachel again. She was an angel when we needed it most.”

Rosemary

“We want to thank Dr. Bingham for her kind and compassionate assistance when our beautiful girl Rosemary needed her help at the end of her wonderful life with us. Dr. Bingham came out on a Sunday evening, across town, within 90 minutes of my call for help. She was both professional and gentle and helped everyone in our family to understand and get through this painful process with her kindness.”
Thank You!

Harley

I cannot thank Dr. Christina Kinkade enough. She was so compassionate and caring. She answered the call and was able to be there for our Harley so he did not have to suffer anymore. It was so peaceful and calming having her. As much as my heart is completely broken over Harley, I know he is at peace. Thank you again for being there for us and him in his time of need.

Just wanted to pass along how wonderful Dr. Oleary was this past Sunday at our home helping us at this difficult time. She made the whole process so dignified and respectful, we truly appreciate everything that was done for us that day. Keep up the great work and I will most definitely pass on to whoever may need you guys in the future. God bless
Maggie

“Dr. Shields came when needed, Maggie’s time was becoming a time of suffering even as she still made the effort to faithfully follow me about.
He was caring and gentle. My heart is broken but I know Maggie’s is at peace.
Maggie was my 11 or 12 yr old American cocker rescue friend for 5 years who had been fairly stable with Cushings symptoms until her pituitary tumor grew. She was always within a few feet of me but never underfoot.”

Thank you Dr. Shield.
