10/10/2011 - 5/10/2014“My cat Marco spent many evenings with me lying on my lap with his face nestled against my arm as we watched TV together. And that is how he passed away. He had fought kidney cancer to the point that he was not eating for days on end and finally could not even drink water without vomiting. I cannot emphasize too much what a humane way euthanasia at home is to let your beloved pet go when the time comes. I am so grateful to the wonderful veterinary clinics that aid our pets when they are in need but a clinic is not where I want my pets to die if it can be avoided. And I realize sometimes it can't be. With euthanasia at home Dr. Nancy visited my home and gave us as much time as we needed to prepare our selves and our pet. In Marco's case he was so tired he had no hesitation to lie in my lap and rest just like he always did. And when we were ready he was given an injection (not an IV) that simply put him to sleep. And after 15 minutes he was given a second injection that stopped his heart. It was an incredibly peaceful passing and Marco passed in his home and held in the arms of someone who dearly loved him with another family member petting him as he slipped away. I will never forget Marco as I have never forgotten my other pets and I will never forget the way he passed. Death of a pet is never a good thing but it can definitely be handled in a good way and euthanasia at home is the way to do it if you can. Thank you to Dr. Nancy and all the vets who provide this valuable service”Eric JohnsonColumbia, South CarolinaMay 22, 2014

I miss and love you so much, my dear little Marco. It has been over eight months since we lost you but you will always be a loving presence in my heart. I am so glad you were a part of our lives even though your life was short. I will never forget how you climbed onto my shoulder at the shelter and
stayed in our arms until we took you home. Rest well our sweet boy.
