Project Description

Euthanasia

Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is one of the hardest things we ever have to do. Making that decision is heartbreaking and many feel guilty for even considering it. But when the time comes it really can be the kindest thing to do for our companion to prevent any suffering.

Dr Katie feels that this is one of the most important acts of having a pet. 

You can discuss in depth about your pet’s quality of life and how and when the time comes to say goodbye. Dr Katie will do everything she can to remove stress for your pet at this time, including sedation prior to euthanasia.

Dr Katie has gone through this herself and truly understands how difficult it is to make this decision.

Then, according to your wishes, cremation including having ashes returned can be organised. We work with the family run, caring and compassionate Green Pastures Pet Crematorium who have range of urns you can choose from. 

If you would like to read more about assessing quality of life and how to know when it is time for your pet see here.

To know more about the process and what to expect when the time comes to say goodbye at home you can read our blog here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please see our frequently asked questions  below. If you have any other questions or queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Vet care in your own home takes away the stress of travel, an unfamiliar place and other animals for your pet. Many dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals are extremely stressed in the veterinary environment. This can make examination and treatment very difficult and cause further problems down the line with repeated negative experiences.

These visits are also often stressful for people, can be inconvenient times and difficult to get to if you don’t have access to transport. Instead at home you don’t have to worry about time wasted travelling or waiting in the waiting room. You can get on with your life at home and Dr Katie will arrive and start the consult straight away.

Our consults are usually 30-45 minutes long. This allows lots of time for getting to know you and your pet, a low stress exam and plenty of time for consults!

In the clinic you will often be allocated only a 10 minute appointment which is a rush to fit in history taking, clinical exam, treatment, questions and history writing! You don’t need to feel that rush with Positive Pet Mobile Vet and Dr Katie is always more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Dr Katie is based in Whiston, Staffordshire Moorlands and works around a 25 minute radius from there.
Covering Cheadle, Leek, Ashbourne, Tean, Endon, Denstone and villages in between.

Zone One and Zone Two areas can be seen here.

Further visits can be arrange but an additional surcharge will be applied. Please contact us to discuss if you are out of area.

Home vet visits are no designed for emergency situations. In a true emergency it is likely your pet will require hospitalisation for further work up and stabilisation (e.g. blood tests, x-rays, IV fluids).
So please ring Lime Trees Veterinary Clinic on 01782 385285.

Their hospital in Meir also host VetsNow for out of hours cover.

Dr Katie mainly sees dogs, cats and rabbits.

Guinea pigs, small ferries (e.g. hamster, rats, gerbils, mice) and tortoises can also be seen but for more complex cases Dr Katie would recommend seeing an exotic pet specialist vet.
