When it was time to end Yuri’s life we were Safer at Home due to COVID19. Our vet could only offer to take him from us after a goodbye in the parking lot, but thankfully Journeys Home was still operating in-home services. I can’t imagine how difficult it would have been without them. Yuri greeted Dr. Laura with the last tail wags he gave to anyone, and sweet talked his way into her bag of cat treats. We fed him treats while she gave a sedative and I don’t think he felt a thing. He fell asleep beside us, and I don’t think he felt an ounce of fear, anxiety, or pain. It was the best goodbye we could hope for. Thank you so much for the important work you do!
Dr. Christine Nelson came to our apartment on Saturday to help our dog pass away. She was so kind and the perfect balance of caring and professional. Our dog is so afraid of strangers but she made him and us feel very relaxed and comfortable in this super uncomfortable and sad time. I seriously could not imagine a more caring person in this time of need and we really appreciate being able to send off our baby to his next life in such a comfortable situation.
Dr. Christine did an amazing job with our sweet girl, Ellie. She arrived on time, was extremely empathetic, and it was a very peaceful process overall. She assured me that I was making the right decision and that it was time. Ellie was able to remain relaxed in our home and I was able to hold her in my arms as she passed on, which meant the world to me. Thank you for everything you do and for offering this wonderful service. I will recommend Journeys Home Pet Euthanasia to all of my pet loving friends and family.
Our family could never thank you enough for the service you provide to families and the wonderful care Dr Katie Weber took of our sweet 8-year old puggle Gunner who we had to send over the rainbow bridge much too soon due to lymphoma cancer. Dr Katie made this absolutely horrible decision we had to make yesterday such a peaceful, calming and loving experience with our four legged baby in is final breaths of life. Gunner always hated to go to the vet so having this procedure done in our home where he was comfortable and at ease and our entire family could hold him and pet him as he drifted off peacefully was the best thing we could have asked for given the circumstances. Again, thank you so so very much for doing what you do!
After 17 years together it was so hard to make the decision that it was time for Bazzy to leave us. Being able to use your Quality of Life scale made it clear that the time had come. Dr. Kit could not have been more kind and compassionate. Bazzy’s last moments were as fine as the life that he lived with us. Thank you for this service, it was so good to be able to say goodbye at home, in peaceful, familiar surroundings, without pain or disruption.
From the bottom of my heart I thank Dr. Katie so much for being so gentle, loving,and natural with my baby girl, Annie, who passed away yesterday. She eased my mind in such a loving way that I was doing the right thing. That meant the world to me. I will always be grateful for Annie’s special journey home!! Thank you!
Thank you so much for helping me with my cat Sasha. Her passing was peaceful and sweet and was made so by you. I have told everyone I know how much it meant to me and what a wonderful service you provide.
I cannot express how thankful I am for the service you provide.
We are very thankful this service is available. Our almost 11 yr old, 173 lb St Bernard, Teddy, had been having issues getting up off the floor for some time. After 4 days of not getting up at all, we knew it was time. Dr. Laura was very kind and loving while she helped us help Teddy in the only home he’s ever known. She helped make an emotionally hard time less stressful. We are deeply in debt for her compassion. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Do not hesitate to contact Journeys Pet. You will be glad that you chose this peaceful end. In my lifetime I have unfortunately had to end the suffering of several furry friends. This was the most peaceful, gentle way to do it. Junior was my soulmate and I will miss him for eternity.
Doing the right thing for your much loved pet is also one of the hardest things to do. It’s a heartbreaker. That said having kind, gentle and knowledgeable people who patiently listen to you when you first make that shaky, weepy phone call. Doctor Katie kindly asked me a few questions, shared her own experiences with her family pets and reassured me that I would know when the time was right.
When it came to be that time, our Lola did indeed let us know and Doctor Laura was equally wonderful. Professional, kind and warm she explained everything thoroughly. We never felt any questions were off limits. She treated us and our pet with dignity. This is an A1 operation.
