Dr. Greg, I want to thank you again for helping us through this terrible time. Words can’t express how much we appreciate your compassion and patience with us. I know you provide a much needed service but you go that extra mile to make it as comfortable as possible. Your a good person and the world is better for it.
So glad that we used your service. Our dog was suffering with pain, especially in his shoulder. He couldn’t stand to be touched without crying. I knew he needed to be put down, but I didn’t want to hurt him taking him to the vet, and I didn’t want him frightened. Dr. Darden came to our home and we sat on our lawn with our dog’s head in lap and we got to talk to him, kiss him, etc. until he was gone. It was a serene setting and our guy just went to sleep. Thank you so much for having this service!
My sister and her family are truly grateful to Dr. Alicia Darden for her kindness and professionalism. She came out on a Sunday afternoon to ease my sister’s dog out of his pain. Because poor Champ was in too much pain for us to try to move him, she performed all of her tasks in the pouring rain, in the driveway where he had collapsed that morning. Dr. Darden went above and beyond to be helpful in every way, even producing a stretcher to carry my sister’s dog to his grave near their fish pond, and helping to carry the stretcher, loaded with Champ’s 70-pound body, up concrete steps through the mud. No one in my family has ever used this sort of service before; when the time has come to euthanize a pet, we have always made a sad, and for the pet, frightening, trip to a vet’s office. My sister and I have both decided that based on our experience with Dr. Darden, we will not hesitate to recommend her, and this service, to other pet lovers who are faced with this difficult situation.
Thanks to Dr. Alicia Darden for the nice card and Holly’s paw print and some of her hair. We will cherish this forever. Thanks for coming so quick and being so encouraging to me, and crying with me. I will never forget you. God Bless you for your love for animals and care for their owners.
My husband and I are extremely grateful to Dr. Alicia Darden for her generosity and compassion. Since our dog, Nubbins was in too much pain for us to try to move him, we felt the right thing to do was to euthanize him at his home. Since his inability to walk by himself was so sudden, we had very little time to find somebody to help us manage this situation. We called several other services prior to getting in touch with Dr. Darden. Once we talked to her, she drove an hour and a half late on a Tuesday night to put our precious dog out of his pain. Dr. Darden went above and beyond to be helpful in every way and based on our experience with Dr. Darden, we will absolutely recommend her to anybody that has the difficult decision to make to say goodbye to a dearly loved pet. Thank you so much.
Sincerely, KAREN PAINTER
