Welcome to Say Goodbye at Home Mobile Veterinary Euthanasia Services with Dr. Susan Holt.
If you are visiting this website, chances are that you either have already made the decision that it is time to let go of your pet or the time is near and you want to be prepared. You probably are looking for a way to make this process easier for your pet, to lessen any suffering, and make it painless and stress free. Above all, you are looking for a caring and compassionate person to be there for your pet and for your family during this difficult time. Your pet may have an end-stage disease, cancer, some other debilitating disease that is no longer responding to treatment, or he or she is just very old. He or she may have been part of your life for many years, may have helped you through tough times, has been a faithful companion. Now, you see it in your pet's eyes. The love is still there but you also see suffering.
Why at-home Euthanasia?
There is a huge difference between saying goodbye in the privacy and comfort of your home versus taking your pet to the vet's for that last, dreaded trip. In a few words: compassion, caring, and comfort in your own home instead of an often stressful environment in a hospital.
You undoubtedly want your pet to be comfortable resting on his/her favorite bed with you in his/her last final moments. You want this moment to be quiet, calm, and for your baby to be in gentle, caring, kind and in loving hands.
Questions you may have:
What do you do when the time has come? How do you make it easier on your pet, on your family and on yourself? How do you know the time has come? Do you know what to expect? These are all questions that will be answered in this website or with a free phone consulatation with Dr. Holt..
We offer a compassionate, caring and gentle pet euthanasia service done in the comfort of your own home so that your beloved pet doesn't have to be put in a stressful situation, having to be lifted into the car, going into a noisy, busy veterinary hospital to spend the last few moments of his or her life in fear.

MAP OF OUR TERRITORY::
Though I'm sad over the loss of my special friend, Hank, I can tell you that I'm so glad to have met you. Your energy is pure and kind, and that you find sincere purpose in helping people get through difficult times. You far exceeded any hope I might have had. I can't thank you enough for being so patient and loving to us, and for showing us an immense kindness. You really do seem like an angel to me.
Hank was the light of our life, a once-in-a-lifetime kind of girl. It's so quiet and different now without him, but we are forever thankful that we were able to say goodbye at home
Dear Dr. Holt,
I wanted to be sure to thank you and your amazing texhnician for your kindness and service. You are very compassionate and professional people who recognize how difficult loss is for us pet parents yet are able to shepherd us through with grace.
My house is no longer a home without my sweet pooches. I lost them both this year: Ella on February 21 and Sadie on June 12. I miss my babies so much but am grateful that they each transitioned peacefully. I continue to cherish the many memories I have of our beautiful life together.
Dr. Holt was outstanding. She was infinitely patient, caring, and sensitive to our requests. Being able to be with Milo in his favorite place, with his favorite toys, surrounded by his loving family, we have such a peace about our decision. We feel as if we gave Milo a gift, sparing him from the inevitable pain and suffering that was headed his way. Thank you for providing a way for us to do this, and for helping to take something awful and turn it into something good.
Thank you Dr. Holt for turning the saddest day of my life into a beautiful experience. The professionalism and compassion you gave to my beloved beagle Danny brought such comfort to my family in knowing we made the right decision at the right time. You were referred to me by my co-worker and I, in turn, am recommending everyone else I know to consider your very invaluable service.
Dr. Holt came to our front door and immediately saw that we were in need of a hug!! Without hesitation, she scooped us right into her loving arms. From that moment on, we felt held by her. She met our pooch in his backyard and asked us to tell her stories about him. She was fully present, engaged, caring and at the same time thorough, efficient and highly professional. She told us about every step that would follow and that is exactly how things unfolded... We are immensely grateful to Dr. Holt for her generosity of heart and gentle ways. She showed us how goodbyes are supposed to be. What a rare and precious gift!
I want to tell you how much I appreciate the way that you handled our loss. I would like to include how much you did for us from the moment you walk towards the door to the moment you carried Pete into your car. You knew what I was going through and what I would be going through. And I love you for doing that for me. It's a wonderful thing that you do and I am somewhat at ease knowing that the little guy Pete is going to get the same respectful and loving care that you gave Dakota. I still occasionally have little small breakdowns. I always feel like I see him whenever I walk through the door. I just can't believe he is gone. I expected him to always be here. I have never had a dog and never had to make such a choice, but it was much easier with your guidance.
Thank you so much,
Dear Dr. Holt,
You have a sweet & calm energy. You offered emotional support, kind & loving words & gestures. You made us feel we are doing the best thing we could for our dear Ronnie Boy. You explained everything to us & you were so gentle to us & to our baby. Your service was above & beyond. You offer such a tremendous service to the community and we will certainly share our experience with those we know. You make what is a painful experience feel like a spiritual experience. I really can't thank you enough for your kindness and sweet words of wisdom. Thank you again for all your kindness and concern. We miss our sweet Samson so much. We can't think of a better way to honor his life than saying goodbye at home.
Mimi, Levi, Dakota, Miranda and Tony
