A loving pet owner: “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 there 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 couldn’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. – A loving pet owner.

No words can explain the loss we feel without you around. You were a huge part of our daily lives. You wake us up in the morning especially if we sleep in. You greet us happily each and every time no matter how we look, smell or feel. You know when we’re sad and you lick away our tears. You’ve seen the bad times and you were a part of all the good times. You will always be our 80-pound lap dog and king of the couch cuddles! Our hearts are broken and what keeps us going is the thought that you are no longer in pain. WE LOVE YOUR FOREVER, MOMO! We will never forget you. Thank you for coming into our lives.
We said goodbye to our best buddy Merphi last week. We are very grateful Merphi was a part of our family for 15 years, he brought us so much joy and support through many life phases. We are thankful to Dr. Liu to allow us to say goodbye to Merphi in the comfort of our home. Her calm compassionate nature helped us through this sad time and Merphi went peacefully. We love you Merphi.
This morning we came to the realization that our boy was in distress and needed assistance quickly. I found Pet Loss At Home and within two hours Dr. Liu was at our home. She is the most caring and compassionate person I could’ve wanted to help us. Dr. Liu explained everything she would be doing and was wonderful with our children going out of her way to get them fur clippings and a clay paw print. When you go through something like this, it makes all the difference in the world to have someone there who has a heart. Thank you so much Dr. Liu.
We are so thankful to have had Dr. Liu’s help in saying goodbye to our beloved little dog. With her very kind, very calm and patient, and very competent assistance, his passing was incredibly gentle and peaceful. It was the absolute best we could have hoped for in such difficult circumstances and for that we are so grateful.
Dr Allegra Liu has helped us say tearful goodbyes to two of our beloved pets. One was a 16 year old Golden Retriever who just wore out. The other was a mutt who was 17 and appeared to have dementia and anxiety. My vet was on vacation so I was not able to discuss what was going on with him yet Dr. Allegra Liu called me back and spent 20 minutes on the phone with me sharing her knowledge. She also fit me in on a day I had scheduled for her to come yet had cancelled. She is so compassionate and such a soft voice and touch with the animals.Since these animals had given us joy for so many years I did not want to stress them out with a trip to the vet and have chosen to have them put down in our home. She is the best and I would highly recommend her and these services.
Anyone that loves animals knows that one of the hardest things you ever have to do is to end your pet’s suffering. I just had to do that for my cat Bandit who I only had for 10 years. I adopted him and his brother Smokey when they were kittens from a rescue site and Smokey got cancer last year and I had to end his suffering in August 2017. Now, not even a year later Bandit got sick with some “idiopathic” illness that was causing his lungs to fill up with fluid. 4 different vets could not figure out how to fix it so after several procedures of draining his lungs I decided to end his suffering. Being a single person and living alone, it was one of the hardest things to decide because he was my buddy and always knew when I needed comforting but I know he is not suffering anymore and is at peace now. Dr. Liu was excellent. She came to the house and was very compassionate and calm and let me spend as much time as I needed with Bandit before she took him. We all know that we will probably outlive our pets and when they pass it is always heart breaking but I also can’t imagine life without them. I look forward to seeing all my pets someday at the Rainbow Bridge!
Good morning. Thank you so much, I am so glad we made the right decision it is still hard and will be for some time, when you open the door we expect him to be there to greet us, but time will heal, you were so sweet and understanding and it made it so much easier. Sharon
Dr. Liu was so kind and compassionate. It was so comforting to know we could say goodbye to our darling kitty in the privacy of own home. And such prompt, comprehensive and kind services. Thank you for what you do! – Michelle
Dr. Liu came to our rescue when we realized that our large 14 year old shepherd mix , Buck, was just too anxious a dog to be put to sleep away from home at the vet.. We had made the careful plans with our vet (who we have known and loved for over a decade) and knew the time had come for our dear dog to be put to sleep. It was so stressful because when the dayvcame, he was just too anxious and uncomfortable to put in the car. Pet Loss cane through right away with Dr. Liu. She came out to our home later that day. She was gentle and patient and skillful. Buck was at ease and comfortable, and did not feel afraid or suffer at all. We are so grateful!
Thanks Dr. Liu!

Dr. Allegra Liu was calm, gentle, compassionate and excellent with this very difficult experience. She gave us the time we needed in saying goodbye and was a comforting presence. She also communicated in scheduling by text with quick responses which I found very helpful.
