Thank you Susan for enabling us to have the most gentle and loving good-bye from our beloved bunny Brownie. After you gave Brownie her sedative, she was on my lap and I was stroking her telling her how much I love her and then she started licking my hand. She continued to lick my hand until she took her last breath. This was one of the most precious gifts I have ever received. Brownie took a long time to let go as she was quite ill and you gave her and us this time and this was invaluable. Although I am sad I feel at peace by this deeply touching and sacred experience. If you have to help your pet over the rainbow bridge, I cannot recommend Susan and Vets2home highly enough . This was a very different experience than when we had to put another little bunny to sleep in the hectic environment of a vet hospital two years ago. I will treasure these last precious moments with Brownie forever. Thank you for your kind compassion from Brownie and her family. X

As I have said in my reasons for giving 10 stars, my greyhound could not have had a more perfect ending, made possible by this extremely lovely lady. Because of her - I know that Del Boy was not afraid & I was greatly comforted by this. Thank you so very much.

We wanted to thank Susan for the care, respect and professionalism she showed us and our beloved dog just over a week ago when we were at our most vulnerable. The passing of our best friend could not have been done with more care or been more peaceful and that has made our loss much easier to come to terms with. We would also like to thank her for all the time she spent with us. Despite it being a weekend she never rushed things or gave us the feeling we had to limit our goodbyes. You provide a wonderful service. Thank you.

Susan could not have been more sensitive to our, and our dog's, needs at this most difficult of times. She carefully explained exactly what she would do, the timing and effect on our dog and what was being done to limit distress. In the end, our beloved Dave died peacefully and relaxed in our arms, after we had been given the space and time to say a proper goodbye.The care post death was a special feature, with Dave carefully placed in a proper bed so our final memory will be of him as if he just asleep. It makes such a difference. Thank you Susan.

I cannot thank Susan enough for her compassion and support to me and the kindness and gentleness she showed to my beautiful Ella. Ella died peacefully in her bed, surrounded by her family (me and my other 2 greyhounds).We were given all the time we needed to say goodbye. This has given me a comforting memory which will be with me always and for which I will be forever grateful.

5 Stars - 21-12-2016 - Ed

I first met joe the vet more than a decade ago after a chance encounter with a very sorry looking cat. Mutley was an impeccable judge of character and greeted joe like an old friend. The immediate calming effect that joe had on him could only be described as magic, and his knowledgable confidant approach helped to put my mind at ease on many an occasion, on one memorable yet slightly embarrassing visit, he tactfully assured me that what I was worried about, were in fact, nipples. For which there is no charge. Some miraculous years later, when mutley could go on no more, I was relieved that it could be joe to help him on his way, I have no doubt that this would have been much sooner had we not been so lucky to know such a talented vet. Ten years on and yet again joe has come to the rescue as my beloved spaniel badger came to the end of his life. Upon contacting my usual practice, I was helpfully informed that Joe had started a practice of his own, specialising in end of life care at home. I can only assume that this was by popular demand, and am forever grateful that joe was, as always, available when we needed him, and a magician in his work. I rarely write a review but in this case, with something so important to to get right, I wanted to share my experience with vets to home, whom I couldn't recommend highly enough. Forever grateful, mutley, badger, and ed.

Dear Ed, Thank you for taking the time at this sad time to send us such a glowing review of my assistant, Jo and the services you have received from Vets2Home. We are so very pleased that your experience was as beautiful as it could be. We are very fortunate to have had Jo with us for more than 2 years now as he, as you say, has a natural, compassionate and knowledgeable way that suits this very special type of veterinary work. We sure hope a glowing review like yours will help encourage Jo to stay with us for a long time to come and with his gentle ways help more owners in the same sad circumstances as you and your pets. Thank you again. Warmest regards, Dr. Susan Gregersen (Hospice & Emergency Vet, Founder Vets2Home - Peaceful Pet Goodbyes) ❤

Having decided that my lovely cat Garfield should be put at peace, I never imagined finding someone that could help make the experience warm! Suzen was amazing from the very first phone call. Such kind consideration when Suzen came to our home allowing us to go through the process in our own time, she explained everything to us and quietly supported us. Chestnut lodge crematorium were also kind and understanding when I called to change the urn, which we received and is beautiful. I would highly recommend this service to all animal lovers Thank you for helping us through this sad time xxx

I would just like to thank Susan for her extraordinary care and support during a difficult time letting go of our beloved dog Jasmine. I cannot recommend Susan at Vets2Home highly enough. She was absolutely fantastic throughout, from the palliative care the night before through to the next day when it was time to say goodbye. She was also wonderfully compassionate towards my Mum who was heartbroken by the loss of her little best friend and our Jasmine was able to pass peacefully at home surrounded by the people she loved and who loved her so much. Susan also arranged for Jasmine's cremation and looked after her at her home for the few days until that time, which put our minds at rest to know that even after death she was still being cared for respectfully. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vets2Home to anyone.

I had Sam for almost 17years and she was so very loved.She loved her 3 walks a day, that was the order she gave me. She loved swimming and was a great traveller, she had been to France several times. The way you so gently put her to sleep was so kind, of my six pets this was the best end of life.Thank you so much Carol

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
