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.

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.
Vet ResponseDear 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

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.
