Coronavirus, Flu and RSV Policy: As medical professionals (i.e. doctors) we continue to follow the health industry's Vax'd + Mask'd + Open Air guidance as we visit multiple homes per day. As such, we can only come to homes where the 1) the euthanasia can be performed safely in an open air setting (e.g. front/back porch, lawn, gazebo, open sunroom, open entryway, etc), and 2) all attendees are wearing medical-grade masks when we are close, and 3) all attendees that wish to be close to the pet/doctor during the euthanasia process are healthy and vaccinated for Covid 19 (i.e. others must stand at least 10 feet back). More via the Appointments tab.
Note: In between the initial sedation and euthanasia shots (~10-12 minutes) we will step back. You and your vaccinated family members may remove your masks and be with your pet feeding it treats, loving on him/her and talking about all the good times you had together! As doctors we are just trying to keep everyone SAFE while being as flexible as possible.
We will do our best to make your pet's passing as gentle, peaceful and loving as possible. To read the many 5 Star Reviews on Passing With Dignity please click on the Yelp, Google or Facebook logos (left column, above).
