In Home Euthanasia
The decision to euthanize your pet can be one of the most difficult issues a pet owner may ever have to deal with. Deciding when it is time to let go of your companion animal is a personal decision which should never be taken lightly. The decision is not easy and can be stressful for both the pet owner as well as the pet. For this reason, many people opt to have a veterinarian come to their home in order to perform the euthanasia procedure. This allows the pet owner (and family) to be together with their beloved animal in a place which is familiar to all. After the procedure is finished, your pet will be transported to the cremation facility with honor and dignity.
The staff at Friends Forever has partnered with several community veterinarians who hold the same high standards that we do in order to provide this unique service. If you, or someone you know, would like to get more information about “in home euthanasia” services then please contact us at (760) 510-1010. We would be happy to assist you.
The following veterinarians have some of the finest bedside manners that we have seen in the pet cremation industry. We have chosen to recommend these veterinarians because of the professionalism, compassion, and respect they show each of their clients. We are proud to display them on our website.
Dr. Tasha Clark and Dr. Elizabeth Benson - Paws Into Grace
Dr. Clark and Dr. Benson both strive to provide the best care for the pets they encounter. They both realized early on that many of the family pets were frightened just by walking through the clinic doors. They both believe that all veterinarians need to offer a peaceful transition for pets in those last moments. So they created “Paws into Grace” to help provide pets the opportunity to leave us with grace, surrounded by familiar things and those they love.
