Our Darling Girl of 17years was put gently to rest by Susan on Maundy Thursday - a fitting day, we felt. What could have been the most traumatic experience, although very hard for us, will be remembered with great joy as we were assured that we were releasing her from her pain and rewarding her at the end with what she truly deserved to receive - a loving, dignified and peaceful death cuddled up tightly in the arms of her devoted owners.
Thank you Susan from the bottom of our hearts - Chris and Ron Thorpe

I said goodbye to my beautiful X-cairn at the end of February. I knew that time was running out but I thought that I had a few more days with her. We had a wonderful day together, Georgie sitting on a blanket in the park, warming herself in the sun, snacking on treats while her border terrier brother played fetch-ball. That evening Georgie let me know that she had had enough and she was ready to go. I wasn't ready, but she was.
I hadn't intended euthanasia at home, but everything happens for a reason and Georgie going down hill so quickly led to Sue being called. I called the service at around 7pm. Sue was with me by 8pm. In many ways I'm glad that my hand was forced. Being at home, rather than going to my usual vet, was less stressful for both myself and Georgie. I couldn't have hoped for a better ending for Georgie. We sat on her bed and she died in my arms, surrounded by love and covered in kisses.
I cannot thank Sue enough for her professional support, kindness, patience and understanding. Nothing was rushed. Not once did I feel that Sue needed to get onto the next job. She gave me all the time I needed to say my final goodbyes.
I know that I will be calling her again in the future and I have recommended the service to friends. A good death is the last act of love that we can give to our fur-kids. I feel that Georgie had this.

Sue Gregerson has come to the house for three of my cats and two cats belonging to friends. She has always been so understanding and given plenty of time and always it has been a peaceful departure.

Our lovely boy became ill suddenly with heart failure over Christmas and although he responded for a month with medication, we knew he wouldn't be with us much longer.
When the time came to make the saddest decision, Alex was re-assuring and understanding - Jo was very kind when he came to our home and helped us to say the final goodbye.
Thank you too for the poem - I know It is what Nero would have said if he could.

We lost our 15 year old terrier Alfie on Boxing day. It was a good death.He had kidney disease whrich is not painful. They just fade away.
However it became apparent on Christmas day that he was very ill. I spent some time on the phone to the lovely Alex and then he rallied again and got out of his basket. By 7pm on Boxing day he was desparately ill. I called again and for Susan to attend which she did. She was lovely to Alf and us as we were devastated. He fell asleep very peacefully. I cannot thank Alex and Susan enough for caring enough to come out without hesitation on a Bank holiday.

It came as a shock to us when we were advised that our beloved Tigger was diagnosed with a suspected brain tumour. However, this news was softened when Susan suggested that palliative care may be a way of giving this "little boy fur baby" a gentle means to extend his life a little. This was immediately started and Tigger responded very quickly and began to act like his old self. We knew that his time was limited and his quality of life gradually declined. After almost 4 - months, we sadly had to make the final decision to say our farewell.
Despite the late hour of the day, Joe came to our home and a final goodbye was made to Tigger as he went to sleep and crossed the "Rainbow Bridge" where one day in the future we shall meet again.
Tigger was a brave cat and from the day when we rescued him to the last day, his 15 years of life was full of adventure in living abroad for over 11 years, plus enjoying some mischief on the way! The least we could do was to ensure his final days were peaceful, comfortable and full of love.
Finally, a huge thank you to Susan, Alex and Joe for their professional support and advice that helped to extend Tigger's life and his time with us.

Our beautiful Sheltie Mia was diagnosed with kidney failure and heartbreakingly we had arranged to have her put to sleep at our Vets the following afternoon.
As the next morning went on we realised that this would have been very stressful for Mia and we could not put her through that.
We called Vets2Home and thankfully Susan was able to come to our house later that afternoon.
She could not have been more kind or reassuring to us and explained everything that was happening. Mia was relaxed and not stressed or frightened and Susan made what was always going to be a horrible time for us that bit less awful.
Would definitely recommend this service if you are unfortunate enough to be in the same situation we were in.
Thank you again.

We always adopt older unwanted animals, 40 assorted dogs and cats to date, not to mention the birds, and over the years have experienced many sad goodbyes.
Vets2Home is the answer to a prayer. We can now assure our friends the gentle, peaceful ending that they should have, without the attendant trauma of travelling, stress, and fear, and without a long wait.
Having participated in so many passings, I can confidently say that Susan is the best I've ever seen.
Phone calls are answered promptly and with sympathy.
Susan and Alex provide the most excellent and reliable service.

I really on behalf of the family can't thank Alex who chatted to us on the phone and Joe who came for the home visit with the job of helping us in a very graceful, professional, dignified way of saying goodbye to our beloved Stan. He was one one in a million but his passing made that transition bearable in the comfort of his own home and the dignified approach of Joe and ofcourse the 'VetstoHome' team.
