Compassionate End-Of-Life Veterinary Care
Our pets love us unconditionally, bring laughter and joy into our lives, and become part of our families. Our final gift to them is to provide a stress-free, peaceful goodbye, all within the comfort of your own home. My purpose and sincerest intent are to provide in-home pet euthanasia service, support, and guidance for you, your family, and your pet.
– Kaitlyn Hemsley, DVM
We remove the stress from veterinary care by bringing it to the place your pet loves most—home.
Dr. Hemsley is here to build a long-lasting relationship with your family and your pet.
When it’s time to say goodbye, we’ll be there to help you through this difficult time.
You have questions; we have answers.
Why choose in-home euthanasia?
- Allows friends and family to be present
- Eliminates the need to transport your pet, which can be difficult and/or distressful
- Grieving in private
- Enables you to set an atmosphere (candles, music, pictures, etc.) that is right for you and your family
- Ability to choose location (favorite bed, outdoors, etc)
- Home burial convenience
- Privacy afterwards
- Other pets can be present, if desired
