Testimonials to help share others’ experiences

Thank you so much for the service you provide. It meant everything to have him slip away peacefully, with the people around him that he loved and trusted. It’s a great comfort to know that we treated him with respect and consideration and caring. We’ll always be grateful for your compassion.

Dr. Rachel made a very sad experience not only bearable, but so very sweet. She was gentle, passionate, sympathetic, professional, responsive, loving and kind. Thank you Dr. Rachel. God bless you.

“Thank you Dr. Ong for making his last moments peaceful.”


I had to say goodbye to my best friend of over 15 years, my dog Freddie. I contacted Dr. Kinkade and heard back within an hour and was able to get a same day appointment. This was truly the worst day of my life, but Dr. Kinkade helped me so much. She put me at ease and more importantly my dog at ease. She helped to make such an awful experience a peaceful one. She is truly meant to do what she is doing and I am so thankful and blessed to have found her. Dr. Kinkade I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


My name is Susan and I had a 14 1/2-year-old lab mix named Chase. This is the fourth dog for me to help over the Rainbow Bridge and it doesn’t get any easier. He had arthritis for some time now and we had a bad night. I had always thought I would know when it was time and it was today.

I started to look on-line and found Pet Loss at Home. It helped me a lot to make the decision. I thought if he was eating, he was okay. But the information about older dogs with arthritis helped me see what I needed to see.

It was Sunday morning and I called the phone number. A recording asked if I wanted to leave a message or talk to someone. Dr. Joe Rosenberg answered the phone. We talked for a few minutes and I asked if he could come today and he said yes. He was at my home in a little more than an hour. He was kind, gentle, and caring. This is the first time I was able to do this at home and, with Dr. Joe’s help, it made an awful thing a little less awful.

Thank you, Dr. Joe, for coming today and for your help. Chase is now running free and lifting his leg high on those bushes.


Michael F. Leverone, DVM,
Our family can’t thank you enough for the professional and caring manner your conveyed in our time of sorrow. Even though losing Raven was extremely difficult and so close to the Christmas Holiday, you made the situation a little more bearable by allowing us to say goodbye to our sweet girl together, in the privacy of home. Thank you again and we highly recommend you to anyone who is in need of your service.
Sincerely, Julie, Makayla & Mike

Note that I’ve caught my breath, I want to say a heartfelt thank you to you. You were perfect in the hard situation of going into someone’s home and performing a euthanasia in a beloved family member. Your heart and care came through and I appreciate you so so much. Charlotte went without pain and without worry and fear. You have that to her. You gave that to all of us. My heart cannot thank you enough. I have peace now. Charlotte is at peace now. And therefore my loved ones have peace now. Because you do what you do, it was easier for us all. God bless you abundantly in every way you need and in a special way that you want. You are an Angel of mercy.

Sweet Dog

It was our worst Christmas Eve ever. Our 15 years old (and sick) dog had a stroke in the morning… we watched over him for hours, not knowing what to do, looking for a sign of .. hope ! In the afternoon we realized he was suffering too much and we made the call. Dr Rachel Thauberger came as soon as she could and when she arrived there was a RAINBOW in the sky…
This doctor is a sweet and compassionate fairy godmother !!! The procedure was fast and painless so our old buddy was able to jump on that rainbow right away.
We were devastated but her empathy gave us the comfort we needed to know that he will no longer suffer and was helped to die with dignity.
We are so grateful for this experience. She made the best of it.
Thank you Dr Rachel !!!


I want to thank Dr. Carrie Moore for her kindness and compassion during the whole process of putting our family dog, Gunner, to sleep. We didn’t know what to expect. Carrie explained everything ever step of the way. She made the unbearable bearable. I will recommend Carrie and Pet Loss at Home to anyone in need of this service.

Greetings,  my name is Howard Rogers.  Recently I met Dr. Holly. She is just wonderful. She took care of my dog with such compassion and commitment.  What a great person to have on board. Thank you to all involved.


We were so grateful to Dr. Durfee and the way he helped us say goodbye to our beloved boy Jake in the comfort of our home. He was very helpful and respectful. He made a difficult thing easier to do.


We had to make the very difficult and absolutely heartbreaking decision to end our sweet 14 1/2 yr old Missy’s recent suffering. I dreaded it since the day we got her and didn’t know how we would cope. Due to COVID and her fear of going to the Vet, we decided having this happen at home would be best for us. I am so glad we did. Dr. Gayle Larson came to our home and was so kind. I would highly recommend this service, although it was absolutely devastating, our whole family was able to be there and spend time with our pups and it couldn’t have been more peaceful. It hasn’t even been a week yet and I still cry daily but if I am ever able to get another pet, I would not hesitate when the time came to use this service again. Thank you Dr. Gayle so much for giving us that comfort and compassion.


Our family encountered the tough, tough, tough decision to ease the bone cancer pain our beloved TJ was suffering through. Dr. Phil arrived at our residence with compassion, care and patience. Thank you Dr. Phil for your heartwarming professionalism as we said our goodbyes to our most loved TJ. Highly recommend Dr. Phil and his services.


Tomorrow marks 1 year since I had to say goodbye to the furry love of my life. Dr. Holly came to our home and I cannot even begin to say how much I appreciate her and how thoughtful, patient and kind she was. It has taken this long for me to be able to really talk about things but it has always remained in my mind just how grateful I was and still am for her.
After 18 years together, I miss my sweet boy with every ounce of me and I still struggle every single day. I am forever thankful though that he passed away in his home and in his mommy’s loving arms.

“We had to put our beagle down today. Dr. Gail was such a sweetheart and I couldn’t have asked for anyone else. I highly recommend her! If my other pets pass I will be using her! Thank you Gail for being compassionate and super friendly.”


I am so grateful this service is here for those who truly want it. Dr. Holly was a god send through this difficult time. I truly believe this is how our loved one should be able to cross that bridge, in their home where all the great memories are for them and their family. It was breaking my heart to have to say goodbye as it was, to take him to the place that he had so many visits over the last month shaking every time I took him, it was too much for me to bare. Saying our final goodbye there, and him feeling afraid and confused was not what I wanted for him. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this service. We miss you terribly Buster but you will always be in our hearts.


Thank you to Dr Gail Larson for coming to our home last night to help us say goodbye to our kitty, Salem. He was about 18 years old and I had him since he was a kitten. He was and will always be my little baby. Even during this time of Covid, Dr Gail came to our house and made our saying good bye peaceful. He suffered from heart and recently kidney disease. He was ready to go to be with his brother Oreo. Many tears fell and will continue to fall but I know he rests peacefully.

Thank you again for your kindness.

Pet Loss at Home helped us go through this very painful farewell step. Dr. Amores was very kind and compassionate. They helped us our very “last minute” request. It makes a huge difference to say good by to your beloved companions from home instead of a cold metal table at a Vet hospital…


“Thank-you to you and Dr. Bingham for letting Olives cross the rainbow bridge.”

We were so grateful to say good bye to our belongings bed friend in the comfort of his home Figaro had been recently diagnosed with cancer and we were worried that we were saying good bye too soon. Not only did Sandra Coon, DVM, gave us reassurance from a medical perspective but she made us feel reassured that it was time. She gave dignity, compassion and kindness in our time if need.

“Dr. Fouts is a Rockstar in her field. She was amazingly responsive when we contacted her on a Sunday morning for our kitty. She showed genuine concern and was a wonderful resource to assist in the grief process. Our kitty’s comfort was top of her mind only rivaled by her compassion for the humans. Losing a pet is awful, but allowing the pet to pass in the comfort of its own home surrounded by the people that cared for it is without a doubt the preferred way when the time comes. Thank you!”

I contacted Dr Ashley Emanuele on a Sunday after seeing that my beloved rescue dog Raegan who was diagnosed with kidney failure, took a turn for the worse. She answered her phone right away (On.A.Sunday). I had Dr Emanuele on speaker so that the rest of my family could hear her explain the process of euthanasia, and after having spoken to other vets, we knew Dr Emanuele was “the one”. She seemed so warm & so compassionate. She offered her condolences & explained in detail all the aftercare services she provided.
When Dr Emanuele arrived the following morning, she arrived on schedule & with such care & compassion, she again described the peaceful process of euthanasia. It was so hard to say goodbye to a member of our family. She saw how sad & upset we were, & made us feel confident that the decision our family has made was in the best interest & love for our dog. There was no hope for recovery & choosing to euthanize was the greatest gift we could give our baby so she did not have to suffer. Dr Emanuele understood our sadness & respected our need for time with Raegan before she passed on. She gave us all the time we needed to love on Raegan & say goodbye.
Dr Emanuele took great care of Raegan in her final moments & for this we are forever grateful. Dr Emanuele, 5 stars to you for being a 5 star Vet. I highly recommend in-home euthanasia. Thank you again.
