First class, caring and incredibly sensitive. My boy Busa was my world and the way he left was incredibly dignified. I held him until the end and my other boy was allowed to come and say goodbye. There was no rush and all done with such care and compassion. A lovely poem and a battery candle were left on the side table which was such a caring touch. This has pride of place in my bedroom. I can't recommend you highly enough. Thank you so much. God bless you xxx

Putting my beloved 15 year old Jack Russell Charlie to sleep has been the most heart wrenching thing I have ever had to do. From the first phone call to Susan, up until the point Charlie passed, she showed such empathy and professionalism, which gave me full trust and faith that I had made the right decision for Charlie, me, my husband and our two daughters. The compassion she showed Charlie, will in time, help the healing and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for making such a painful episode in our lives that much more bearable. The poem and candle she left, without me even realising, meant so much. Your an angle.

This is the 2nd time in 10years that i have chosen to use the services of Vets2Home for the end of life care that Susan Gregerson offers. The service was good then but now its even better. Nobody reaches the decision to end their beloved pets life easily. But, Susan's calm professionalism makes the whole process as relaxed and pain free as possible for all concerned. Our dog Freckles had given us and others so much love and fun throughout her life. She deserved as dignified a death as we could give her. Vets2Home made it possible to show her the respect she deserved. We are immeasurably grateful to Susan and her team for the service they offer.

Susan and her team made saying goodbye to our wonderful dog sunny a beautifully calm and peaceful end. He was so relaxed and completely at peace. Our other dogs were allowed to stay and say goodbye which proved so very important to them and it allowed them to grieve with us. An extremely difficult and emotional time was made so much easier by Susan and her fabulous team. The support and compassion they have given us has been so important. Thank you so much for giving our special boy the peaceful end he deserved.

From the moment Susan arrived she helped calm everyone down including Toby who wasn't in a good way when she got there. She was kind, compassionate and caring, and everything was done at our speed. She was with us for 2 hours helping us say the loveliest goodbye to our boy. As much as you never want to say goodbye to your pets, when they eventually do have to go, it should always be done the way Susan done it. It will be a night we all will remember forever and at least we can say Toby's last moments were peaceful and serene. Susan shaved off a bit of his fur that we could keep with a little candle and poem which we now have by his ashes. We just want to say thank you to her for helping us that night, and for the only send off we ever wanted for our boy.

EVERY EUTHANASIA SHOULD BE AT HOME AND GIVEN THE TIME NECESSARY TO MAKE THIS SITUATION - WHICH MEMORY WILL LAST FOREVER - AS COMPASSIONATE, RESPECTFUL AND EMPATHETIC FOR THE ANIMAL AND ITS HUMAN FAMILY. NOBODY DOES IT BETTER THAN THE TEAM AT VETS2HOME - PEACEFUL PET GOODBYES. AS A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL I CAN SAY THAT.

The end of my dog's life was dealt with swiftly and discreetly but we were also given the opportunity to say goodbye to him in what was an inevitable situation. There was asensitivity by the vet both to the dog and to us.

I work for Cats Protection and as you can imagine bring home the odd cat! Timmy was one of those. I adopted Timmy last summer at the age of 18 years old, he had stage 2 kidney disease. He had been on a renal diet since I brought him home and at then end of last year blood tests suggested all was stable with his kidneys. The night I called vets@home my husband called me at work to tell me he found Timmy collapsed and struggling to breathe. I managed to get an appointment at my own vets that evening but I work quite a way from home so couldn't go myself. I discussed Timmy's condition with my vet over the phone and agreed to try medication to help him. Timmy had a blood clot to one of his front legs, caused by high blood pressure relating to his kidney disease. But when I got home I just wasn't happy with how Timmy was. He was meowing, getting up and sitting down trying to get comfortable, hiding and had a lot of blood in his wee. He wasn't our normal happy Timmy so at 9pm that night I called vets@home, I did not want to drive him in a basket to our emergency vet a good 1hr away. They were kind and compassionate over the phone and let me know the name of the vet coming and how long they might be. When the vet arrived he was calm and friendly, he allowed me to talk through what had happened and we talked through my doubts and concerns. Understanding my job he didn't talk to me like an idiot either. My other cats liked him so that speaks volumes. There was no rush to make a decision and when we decided the procedure was fully explained to us. The nicest thing was that Timmy wasn't moved from the position he chose to curl up in, all the injections were done where he lay. It was so peaceful and calm and the best thing for Timmy. The vet confirmed he had gone and he then left us to our goodbyes. This is an expensive service but for me no amount of money could buy that kind of ending. Euthanasia is the one gift we have to give our beloved pets a calm and peaceful end to their journeys with us. I will certainly be calling vets@home if I need them in the future.
