Welcome to A Gentle Farewell

Your In-Home Euthanasia Veterinarian in Northern Ohio
Call us at 440-452-3422

Considering end of life decisions for our furry friends is always a difficult thing to face. They are not able to live as long as we do, so we must face these losses throughout our lives. A Gentle Farewell wants to make your pet's passing as peaceful as possible for both you and your pet, by offering euthanasia in the comfort and privacy of your home.

A trip to the veterinary clinic can be very stressful for many cats and dogs, especially if the clinic is noisy and busy. Some pets may have difficulty making the trip due to problems with mobility and pain. Most pets will be much more comfortable in their favorite place at home, rather than at a clinic. When the time comes, I hope you will consider giving your pet the loving gift of in-home euthanasia.

COVID-19 POLICIES - Updated 5/19/21

With all of the concern related to COVID-19, we want to let you know about the measures we are taking to prevent disease spread.  Our goal is to keep everyone safe, especially since we frequently visit elderly and immune-compromised clients at home.  All of our doctors are fully vaccinated, however there are still many unknowns, and we do not want to risk unknowingly  contracting or transmitting the virus.

Our staff will not come to your home if we are experiencing any signs of illness.  Please let us know if anyone at your home has been sick with fever or respiratory signs, so that we may take appropriate precautions.

We request that masks be worn by everyone wishing to be present at an indoor appointment.  We no longer require the use of masks outdoors.

To help our doctors work efficiently, we ask that our consent form is completed ahead of time.  You can download it to your computer (this may not work on a tablet or phone), fill it out, and email it to [email protected], or simply have a hard copy to give the doctor at your appointment.  You can find the consent form on the "Home" page.  Look for the green box labeled "Online Forms."

Please review our cancellation policy on the "Service Area and Fees" page.

Thank you for understanding and complying with our policies meant to keep everyone safe.  Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
