Saying Goodbye…


sayinggoodbyeThe hardest and bravest part of pet-parenthood is the time when you must say goodbye.

We believe that this is a special time of compassion and support, and are available to help you through the process from beginning to end. If you’re struggling with the questions surrounding euthanasia for a beloved companion, perhaps Dr. Saria’s blog post, “The Final, Tough Decision” can help.

At home euthanasia is a very personal and peaceful way to say goodbye to your pet. Susan Lydem wrote a blog post, “Saying Goodbye To A Cherished Pet” describing her first experience with euthanasia in the home. We hope that this information will help you. Please know that we are here to support you during this difficult time.


“Clients Comments”

Dr. Saria

I wanted to take a minute to thank you and Deryl for your compassion and caring in helping Tessa transition from this life. She is finally at peace and although it is always a deeply sad experience, you somehow made it a beautiful and peaceful one. Since joining Karuna Bully Rescue, I have dealt with different clinics and veterinarians & I can honestly say that you are wonderfully different from most others that I have met.

Your extremely gentle approach to humans and dogs is just one example of what sets you apart. I know I am a little biased because of our connection with you having saved our Chaos’ life when you took care of his Parvo and performed his amputation surgery, but I think it is important for you to know that the service you offer by coming into people’s homes is priceless. Having never met Peter & Britt before, you were so compassionate. They were so moved by your kind nature as well as your patience and gentle way of guiding them through Tessa’s passing. I also want to mention that you and Deryl act in such harmony that this really was a seamless visit to what can often be a chaotic experience.

Thank you again for all that you do to care for and protect these animals we call family members. Please know that you have my gratitude and never ending support. I hope that we see one another when circumstances are much happier.
