Is In-Home Pet Euthanasia an option?


In-home pet euthanasia provides several benefits to pet owners who are considering end-of-life care for their beloved animal companions such as:

  • Comfort: In-home pet euthanasia allows pets to pass away in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by familiar sights, sounds, and smells. This can be less stressful for both pets and their owners.
  • Privacy: Euthanising a pet in a veterinary clinic can be a public and emotional event. In-home euthanasia provides privacy and allows owners to grieve in the privacy of their own home.
  • Practicality: In-home euthanasia eliminates the need for transportation to a veterinary clinic, which can be difficult for pets who are in pain, discomfort or are unable to move.
  • Personalised care: In-home euthanasia provides a more personalised and intimate experience. Owners can be present with their pets and say goodbye in a way that is meaningful to them.
  • Reduced stress: In-home euthanasia can reduce the stress and anxiety that pets and owners may feel during the end-of-life process. Pets can be more relaxed in their own home, and owners can be more at ease knowing that their pets are comfortable.

Tammy came at short notice to make sure that Zoe was at home surrounded by those she loved. Tammy was amazing, kind, compassionate, she allowed us the time we needed to say goodbye. Thank you so much Tammy, for your professionalism and kind caring nature you made everything easier by how you went about it. It couldn’t have been done better. Xx Julie

I could not think of a better person to have helping you out at such a challenging time.Tammy was so kind and compassionate, from our first phone call, where I was so distressed and feeling weighted down about having to make such a huge decision. She gave me excellent advice, and when I knew we had reached the right time it was very easy to get hold of her and I knew we would be in good hands.She was so lovely, and I really felt we were able to give my girl a beautiful and peaceful sendoff, which truly eased the pain of losing her, and felt like the best parting gift I could give her.I was so so happy I found Tammy and I can’t speak highly enough of her. A truly special person doing what must be a very difficult job with immense love and grace.

I can highly recommend Tammy! Her kindness, experience and genuine care helped us to get through one of the toughest times we’ve had to endure as pet parents. Being in our own home made everything much easier especially for our beautiful old girl ❤️

Tammy was there for us when we said goodbye to our lovely Charlie at 16.5years old. No one wants to say goodbye but it is made a little easier being in the comfort of home. Tammy was compassionate and caring. Tammy and I have worked together and stayed friends over the years, this is not an easy service to provide but Tammy’s caring personality helps you get through a very difficult day.

My little Lottie was only 3 when she became very ill. I struggled on, as did she for about 4 months to see if any of the trials could turn her around. Over these months, Tammy was constantly supportive and caring and provided first class veterinary care. She not only helped Lottie but also the family during this very distressing time. In the end, Lottie’s day arrived, just before her fourth birthday. She was exhausted from trying to stay with us. I called Tammy and said it was time. Tammy came to the house so that Lottie did not have to be in a vet clinic. Lottie was very gently put to sleep in her own bed with us holding her and being with her for her last breath. I can not recommend Tammy’s service highly enough. Tammy is considerate, thoughtful, calm and an excellent vet - she is the best person to have around both you and your pet at this sad time.

Our 16 year old beautiful Irish wolfhound cross deteriorated quickly while we were overseas. Dr Tammy met my sister at home and FaceTimed us. Our gorgeous girl Strawberry could hear our voices while she passed over to rainbow bridge. Forever grateful to Dr Howard for her patience and finding a way for us to be there.

The Rainbow Bridge Poem

“Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….”
