We are so lucky- my sister in law is a holistic veterinarian with her own mobile business. They do a lot of hospice work, acupuncture, and home visits for elderly pets. Both of our dogs have passed in the past two years. With the first, my beloved lab, Maggie, she and her husband (he's a vet tech) came to our home and administered the euthanasia drugs for her while she was comfortable in her own bed. They took her body with them and arranged for a single cremation. When her ashes were returned to us, they came with a lovely folder that included snips of her fur and several ink paw prints. There was also a card of flower seeds to plant as a memorial and information on grief and the Rainbow Bridge.
Our other dog, Waylon, died at home the day before they were scheduled to come over and help him pass on. Again, they took his body and took care of all the arrangements. My husband requested a nose print, so we have several of those along with paw prints. I won't ever be able to thank them enough for their help and their caring. We were in really bad shape after seeing our baby die and I don't know what we would have done without their support. It's such a wonderful business they have created. I hope the concept catches on and others can have the experience we did.
