In Home Euthanasia
VIRGINIA - For weary pet owners, there's nothing worse than taking a loved pet to the vet one last time to be put down.
After what can amount to months of doctor visits, pet owners say putting a pet to rest in a sterile examination room is disheartening at best.
But for pet lovers lucky enough to live in Virginia Beach, there's a solution. Former equine vet Dr. Tom Wood started Euthanasia Services -an in home service that makes putting your pet to sleep a less obtrusive process.
Wood, who sold his veterinary practice after developing diabetes, says he realized how vital a service like his could be while working with horses – and owners who reluctantly asked him to perform euthanizations in-home.
Wood says he prefers to keep things simple, but will accommodate any reasonable request from his clients. For example, people commonly ask to hold their pets as he performs the procedure.
Euthanasia Services isn't the only in home provider of the procedure – check with your local vet to find out more.
