Testimonials to help share others’ experiences

“Sandra, thank you so very much for your extremely humane and loving approach in helping Blue on to her next great adventure. There are no words to express our gratitude. You made our tragic loss into a beautiful close to a magical and irreplaceable story. Our hurt will take time to heal but I just want you to know what an impact you made on all of our lives today.”

Denver:  Dr. Robin Teague – I really wanted to let you know how appreciative I am for finding your service and getting connected to Dr. Teague in Denver CO.  It’s never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet.  I was heartbroken to see Dusty struggling with his health the last few months and knew last Saturday it was time to let him go.  Given the Covid-19 situation I wasn’t sure what my options would be.  I am so thankful I found this service to match families in need to vets who are doing this work to honor our pets lives.  Dr. Teague was so kind and patient.  Even though I was the last call of a long day, he never made me feel rushed and was so kind and gentle with Dusty.  He just brought him home to me.  The beautiful wooden box that he is packaged in and a lovely bag and kind note.   It makes a heartbreaking occasion a little less sad.  I feel like I was able to honor his beautiful life to the end.  Thank you so much Dr. Teague.

Seattle:  Dr. Coon- Jack and I want to extend our sincerest gratitude to you for your kindness, professionalism and tenderness as you helped our beloved Hank cross from this life to the rainbow 🌈 Bridge.

It was such a difficult decision because he was so happy and lively even at age 7 1/2.  Your guidance and compassion helped make an unbearable decision easier.  He will be missed terribly and forever by our entire family.  But we are so thankful we had an opportunity to be with him as he passed even during this challenging coronavirus crisis.  Thank you for helping to make that possible.  God Bless you and we pray you stay safe and healthy as you provide this meaningful service. 🙏🏻✝️ Debra & Jack Behrens

Seattle:  Dr. Sandy Coon – I just wanted to thank Dr. Coon for coming out during this difficult time to help our sweet Kirby yesterday. It was an incredible gift to both me and him that he could pass in our home being held by his family. I can’t tell you how grateful I am. Thank you so much for making a difficult time a bit easier.

Dr. Darden was fabulous. Our friend found her for us, as we weren’t truly prepared to have to make the decision so quickly. But Dr. Darden came and explained the process, and was VERY patient with us. She is compassionate and caring, and you can tell truly loves family. And our pets are so much part of our family. Thank you Dr. Darden for making this just a little bit easier, when there is nothing easy about losing a loved one.

Denver:  Dr. Robin Teague – I am so glad to have found your service today. I tried to call 5 different services, to find someone to come to my home to end the suffering of my dear, sweet, bunny, Charlie. I wanted to make sure that it was done at home, so that his mate Matilda (Tilly) could be there with him, and to make it as comfortable for not just Charlie, but our whole family.

Dr. Teague met all of Charlie’s house mates, and was not rushed to do anything. When he went in to visit Charlie in his room, Matilda did not run and hide as she does with ALL strangers. I have never seen her stand her ground, but she sat inches away while he met with Charlie and while performing the service. That is huge!

Charlie was a very active, fun, friendly bunny that lived a good long life and will be sorely missed by us all.

As an aside, I started yesterday looking for a service. I was told by some that they do not have services for rabbits, others were out of town for te long weekend, and one another who never returned my call.

It broke my heart to see Charlie dying slowly, but it would have been too stressful for both Matilda and Charlie to be taken from the home. It was absolutely great, that Dr. Teague was the one to answer my call. Charlie could not have been in more caring hands.

Thank you so much for allowing everyone in the family be there to help Charlie (and me) at such a difficult time. My gratitude for the service you provided us cannot be stress enough.

Thank you from all our family! Jet, Tiger, Raven, Rudy, Marilyn and mostly from Matilda and Charlie.

Chicago: Dr. Aaron Vigil – Recently we were faced with the very sad decision to put our cat Ava, suffering with intestinal lymphoma, to sleep. I called your organization and was given Dr. Aaron Vigil’s name and spoke with him. I told him I was not certain if the time was right and would need to discuss with this my sister and he gave me his personal number to call anytime. Later on Friday evening I called and asked if it would be possible to come to our home on Saturday morning. He responded immediately and asked what would work best for us. All the anxiety of timing and a possible emergent run to a sterile vet clinic were eliminated. He was kind, compassionate, gentle and sat with us and prayed with us as our precious pet quietly and peacefully left us. He gave council to dealing with her remaining litter mate and stayed quietly with us. It was nothing short of a miracle and answer to prayer that a man of his character and faith would be part of this painful experience. Thank you all for what you do. You are all a blessing to animal owners.
Most appreciatively,

“We want to say thank you for making Emma’s paw cast and dropping it by our house last month. It’s beautiful and we will cherish it forever. Also, thank you for helping Emma cross over the Rainbow Bridge back on Oct 20th. We are forever grateful that she passed peacefully.”

Robert and Kathy Campbell, Parker.

When you sent your email, I went through your company website with some clarity, and it was actually quite enlightening and extremely helpful. I’ve been looking for answers, for questions I didn’t even know I had…and they they were…all on your website. It helped me feel more at ease with our decision, knowing now it was best. Even looking at all his pics and videos, I see now what I could t see before..that he was in pain, that he was not himself, that it needed to stop for his sake. This releases the guilt I’ve been carrying for ending his life, and the selfishness I’ve been feeling for wanting him back. Thank you for everything Dr Liu.

A short time ago, toward the end of August, 2019, we found we needed to allow our French Bulldog Andre to go to the Rainbow bridge.  We have never used a  home vet visit to put one of our beloved pets to sleep.  I can not express my thanks to Dr. Monica for providing this service for us.  It was peaceful and memorable.  Andre laid in my lap, with one of our dogs laying on my shoulder looking down on him, one seated on the floor looking up at him.  He wasn’t frightened, but happy laying inn my arms with me quietly singing his song to him.  Very gently he went to sleep.  I don’t know why, but I feel his presence in the home.  I had the experience with our other pets of being transferred to the vets office and our baby becoming a little upset.  There was nothing like that with Andre.  Thank you Dr. Monica for your patience, your kindness, for all that you provided for us and Andre.    Carol Joyce

Dr. Laurelle Danton:

I can’t say enough good about Dr Laurelle Danton. She helped my husband and I through one of the most difficult experiences of our lives. Two weeks ago we had to have our sweet little 13-year-old pug, Bugsy, euthanized. He had become very ill and it was evident he had to be put down before he got any worse. Dr. Danton spent quite a bit of time with me on the phone in the days leading up to his death. During the procedure she took time to explain everything to us and allow us plenty of time to say goodbye to our beloved little boy. Throughout the entire process she never rushed with anything and it was obvious she loves animals and would do nothing to cause undue pain. As horrible as having to do this was, having it done at home by Dr. Danton was the best possible way it could have been done. I would recommend this service, and especially Dr. Danton, to anyone who has to euthanize a pet.

Excellent, compassionate, fantastic vet Dr. Niqole Varani from this wonderful company came to our 10-year-old black lab Jesse Jr.’s rescue today to put him to peace, no more lymphoma pain. If anyone considers in home vs at the vet’s office this is the group to use!! Really put us and the dog at ease. We are so grateful for her exceptional compassion towards us in a very difficult hour!! Thank you!! She is most definitely a vet to keep on your staff!!!

I used this service last night to relieve my sweet baby Topaz from his pain. He was 17, and I can hardly remember life without him. He is the love of my life. I knew I couldn’t wait another day, and I was thankful to find this service to come after hours to our home. Thank you, and I highly recommend this service to anyone who has to go through the loss of their pet. It is the best decision you can make for them…..to end the suffering. Please do not wait until they are too far gone in pain. The hardest part is letting go. Mommy loves you Topey Bear

Dog euthanasia put down at home Chicago

On Monday, August 26, 2013, we used this service to say goodbye to our furry baby, Casey. Learning about PetLossAtHome from a friend helped inform us enough to confirm our decision to put Casey down was the right one at the right time for her. She was just a month short of her 17th birthday. We were very blessed to have her in our lives all those yrs, but our home will never be quite the same without her. The vet did an outstanding job of handling us humans with patience and compassion in those last minutes that we had with our little girl, which made saying goodbye to her peacefully laying in her own bed in our bedroom so much better than a sterile vet’s office. I would highly recommend this service to anyone who is dealing with an older dog.

Me and my husband would like to thank Dr. Dale Paley for not only helping our Chiko to have the peaceful passing at home he deserved but going out of her way to come days quicker than we planned when she had somewhere else to be the next day. Our dog had a bad seizure and we did not think he would make it and Dr. Paley found a different place to have him cremated that was open on Sunday and came right over even though we were 3 hours away. If you have a larger dog, the service is the best way to go! Thanks Dr. Paley and Pet Loss At Home for making our loss much more bearable.

This is Grizzely, our 13 year old Mastiff. On October 6, 2013 we chose to send him to doggie heaven to relieve his pain and suffering. Dr. Jamie Griffin and Dr. David Sherer we truely wonderful through this painful process. Having to avoid the fearful car ride and vet visit was a blessing. I wanted to thank you for this service, it is something I am going to reccomend to everyone. This is not an easy decision to make, however they made the process as easy as possible and with the most amount of compassion and caring that a person can give. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We used Pet Loss at Home on April 12, 2014. I can highly recommend them. I had called three in-home euthanasia services, and Pet Loss at Home is the only one who actually answered the phone. I made an appointment with Dr. Henderson for a Sunday, and then had to call her back when I realized our Moon needed to go sooner. She was flexible and agreed to come the same afternoon I called her. This was such a relief for us. Moon gets so nervous at the vet, and I did not want his last moments to be ones of fright and discomfort. Dr. Henderson came to our home and sent Moon on his way in a very loving manner. Dr. Henderson was very compassionate, and she explained to us what to expect. The whole experience was as good as it can be. I will use them again when the time comes for our next pet to pass on to the next life. Thank you, Dr. Henderson. Thank you, Pet Loss at Home.

Thank you Pet Loss at Home and Dr. Monique Lewison for coming out so late in the evening to come to our time of need. Your kindness and compassion brought such comfort to everyone. Our 13 year old yellow lab, Libby, was able to pass away in her favorite spot of the house. Thank you hardly covers our gratitude. God bless.

Chicago, Illinois

Last night we had to put our 13 year old kitty down. We were so grateful that we were able to do this in the comfort of home and ensure her last moments were without any fear or pain. It meant a lot to me to be snuggled with her for her transition. Thank you for your compassionate staff, our vet was very kind and took the process slowly for the utmost level of comfort.

I recently utilized the home euthanasia services of Pet Loss At Home for our dog. Dr. Jaime Griffin was so wonderful that I just had to write to let you know. We really appreciated her professionalism and compassion, she made a difficult situation so much easier for us. The process was so peaceful and special, definitely the way that our best friend deserved. Dr. Jaime showed so much kindness and care for our pet that I was completely at ease with the decision we made. I would recommend Dr. Jaime to anyone.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Dear Dr. Jaime Griffin…How do we thank you? Circumstances beyond our control enabled you to enter our lives at just the precise time. You genuinely felt our pain and helped us to absorb the sadness. Your loving touch and gentle spirt made an unbearable situation manageable. You took our precious Jackson home, and for that, we are overwhelmingly grateful. How do we say thank you? We say it with a prayer to God for you and your special ability to provide loving care to the most vulnerable creatures who love us so deeply and innocently. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We lost our precious puppy Nayla. She lost the use of her legs and couldn’t hold herself up anymore. It came on quickly and Nayla was such a fighter. After all of the tests, the doctors thought that it might be a brain tumor. Nayla gave us 7 years of such joy and love. For anyone who has to go through something like this, I highly recommend Pet Loss at Home. Dr. Alicia Darden, was so loving to Nayla and all of us and she made such a sad experience, very dignified and full of Love.

Atlanta, Georgia

Thank you Dr. Alicia Darden. You made a very hard thing, not so hard.

Atlanta, Georgia

The only good thing about losing my dear, sweet Buddy was being able to hold him in my arms on my living room floor. Dr. Niqole Varani was kind and compassionate. Having these kinds of end-of-life quality choices make a rotten event somewhat less awful. Thanks and I will recommend you.
