Why at-home euthanasia?

Senior pets can have reduced vision or hearing, they may be more painful or simply more anxious about going to the vet. By coming to the house, I feel the family and the pet are more comfortable and relaxed. The family can have privacy and their pet can be on a favorite sofa cushion or outside in the yard.

Serving Rochester

My name is Dr. Susan Meier and I’ve been practicing veterinary medicine for 15 years. I started this pet hospice business to provide clients the opportunity to participate in the decision making about their pet’s needs, have the time to say goodbye to their companions, and to plan for their death.

Making the Decision

Deciding if it is the right time to euthanize your pet is one of the most difficult decisions pet owners can face. I will do my best to help you with that process.


A good place to start is a Quality of Life scale such as this one from pawspice.com: 


Quality of Life Scale


Peaceful Euthanasia

When it is clear that your pets quality of life has diminished and it is time to say good bye, I will walk you through the process and answer all your questions.   Euthanasia occurs after I administer a sedative to ensure a comfortable quiet goodbye.  Cremation options available.
