After introductions, Dr. Adamson examined Molly, noting her deterioration and reassuring us that we made the right decision. Molly lay down on the blanket where we petted her while she relaxed following the first shot, then the doctor gave her a shot to put her to sleep. I stayed with her for the last part. I said my goodbyes and he gently wrapped her in a blanket and took her away. I have attended euthanasias three times. This was so calm and humane compared to the other times. I strongly recommend Gentle Sleep. They were extremely kind, caring, and professional.
"My wife and I talked today and were surprised about how much easier Molly's passing was with your help. We are grateful that we found you. Thank you so very much. I sent the email below to our usual vet who could not travel to our home: "

Making the decision to provide pet euthanasia.
~~Euthanasia (from the Greek "eu" - meaning "good" and "thanatos" - meaning "death") is the practice of ending life in a painless, dignified and humane manner. In-home pet euthanasia allows you to be more involved and comfortable in every aspect of your pet's final moments. It avoids the stress your pet may experience when being transported to the vet's office, especially when your pet's mobility may be a factor. It allows you and your family to grieve in private. In-Home euthanasia allows your beloved companion to spend their final moments at home where he or she wants to be.
•Is your pet unable to participate in his/her normal activities?
•Has your pet been examined by your veterinarian to find treatable causes of being unable to eat or drink adequately, losing excessive body weight, having urine or bowel movement incontinence or difficulty, being confused or disoriented, coughing or having breathing problems, or having pain or difficulty in getting up?
•Have treatments or medications ceased to be helpful or curative?
•Is your pet hiding more and wanting less contact with you, your family, and/or the other pets in your home?
•Has your pet been diagnosed as suffering from an illness or disease in which recovery is not probable?
•Is your pet having fewer and fewer 'good days' and more and more 'bad days'?
Making the decision to provide euthanasia for your pet is difficult enough, but knowing "when" may be even harder. This is truly an individual decision best made by you and your family with professional guidance. The key factor in when to say goodbye is determining when your pet's quality of life is failing. You know your pet and their habits better than anyone else.
I can help you determine your pet's quality of life by having you ask yourself some basic questions. If you can answer 'yes' to any of the following, this would help support your decision that euthanasia would be the right choice at this time or very soon. On the Home Page, you will see that you can arrange to have me come to your home solely to examine your pet and help you decide the answers to these questions:
Making The Decision
"I just want to let you know how much your services meant last night for Kitty and us. I don't know if he had the strength to get stressed if we'd taken him to the emergency vet but this was so much more personal. You and your wife are wonderful and compassionate people. Miss him badly and Echo is lost. The ['When Cats Grieve'] sheet you left was helpful. Thank you again for having the heart to do this for people."
"I just wanted to thank you again for coming last night. I am so glad that Sammy was able to cross the bridge in his own home with his people and not be scared. God bless you two for what you do. I am not sure I properly thanked you last night."

"You came by our house yesterday to euthanize our old friend, Foster. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your professionalism and compassion. It was a tough time for our family, but you made things easier."
