The Difficult Decision

No decision is more difficult for a pet owner than the decision to euthanize their beloved animal. My mission is to provide you and your pet with an experience that is as free from anxiety and pain as possible. Being able to have your last moments together where you and your pet are most comfortable, at your home, is a gift that can make this sad experience undeniably more peaceful for both.

The word “euthanasia” itself stems from the greek words "eu" (good) and "thanatos" (death). Though I know this is an emotional process for pet owners, you can rest assured I take pride in having the skills necessary to provide a peaceful end-of-life experience for your pet.

Never miss an important date
Once the decision for pet euthanasia has been made, I can help you by offering my expertise and compassionate support throughout the entire process. I will guide you through the details and gather as much information up front as possible to minimize the amount of time needed for paperwork on arrival.

Upon arrival and once you are ready, a sedation injection will be given to your pet to ensure they're comfortable. This way, your pet will become relaxed, and drift off to sleep before the final injection. This helps ensure the procedure is painless and peaceful.

Oh, and love
I will respectfully allow you and your family adequate time to spend before and after the procedure, then if requested I will prepare and transport the pet for cremation.

From People like You...

Dr. Beverley was an such amazing presence during this extremely hard time. She was so gentle with my sweet girl, and so kind to us as we all said our goodbyes. My sweet Kelly was able to pass peacefully in the comfort of her own bed at home. I recommend this service to everyone with a beloved pet. As hard as this was, it was made peaceful by Dr. Beverley

Matthew - Helotes

Dr. Beverley is an amazing and compassionate veterinarian. She was wonderful and supportive during a very difficult time. I would travel anywhere to have her care for my loved ones but conveniently she is willing to travel to you, which helps ease the stress during a very difficult time.

Ashley Madrano - San Antonio

Saying goodbye to your best friend is never easy. It's important to make sure that his/her last moments feel completely loved and cared for. Dr. Beverley provides a service that allows for this opportunity. She is incredibly kind and compassionate in what she does. It allows for your best friend to pass on in the place they feel most comfortable, not a scary, unknown clinic. I highly recommend choosing her for your service.

Dr. Beverley was so nice to my kitty. She was even able to make the trip to Boerne the same day to help me. I am so grateful that she offers this service.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know the time is right?

This the most difficult question, and the answer will vary depending on the pet and the illness. You know your pet, and will recognize specific changes that indicate the right time, such as:

-Not eating or drinking
-Accidents in the house
-No longer greeting you when you come home
-No longer patrolling the yard or protecting their territory
-No longer wagging their tail
-Isolation from the family or other household pets
-Lack of interest in playing
-Inability to stand or walk on their own
-Attitude changes, like depression, aggression, or confusion
-Not wanting to do the things they normally enjoy

Who should I consult before making the decision?

Your family veterinarian will often offer the best advice, as they know your pet’s medical history and situation.

When should I schedule my appointment?

I give first priority to appointments that are scheduled. I will try my best to accommodate those who call same-day. If I hear from your earlier in the day I am usually more likely to be able to accommodate a same day appointment than I am in the afternoon or evening.

Every day is different, so I may be available within a few hours when you contact me; or I may be unavailable until the following day. I understand that sometimes a need for euthanasia arises quickly, and I will do my best to help when I can; but I may need to refer you to a local emergency clinic if I cannot get to your home within a time frame that works for you and your pet.

I have found, after helping families and pets through many euthanasias, that some advance planning can help ensure a peaceful passing during an already extremely difficult time. By scheduling in advance of the appointment I am better able to coordinate goodbyes for the pet and the people who love him or her. This ensures we avoid a crisis or painful event, and make decisions about how to commemorate the pet’s life with a clearer mind.

Preparations for a gentle pass

Selecting a room or area special to the pet and yourself is often suggested. Feeding your pet one last favorite meal is permitted if they are still able to enjoy or consume it. Loss of bladder and bowel control is often common during euthanasia, so you may want to place an unwanted blanket or cloth under your beloved pet before we begin.

Can I stay with my pet during the euthanasia procedure?

Yes, you are welcome to stay for the procedure as long as you feel comfortable. Some people like to be present for the entire procedure, while others stay for the sedation only. It is your personal decision, and I fully support whatever you choose.

Can we be outside?

We can be wherever your pet is most comfortable – on a bed, table, couch, or even outside on a blanket (weather permitting).
