Dear Sue Wilson,

We just want to thank you for what you and the“Transitional Veterinary Services”did to relieve the pain and future pain of our loved and precious Hachiko. We almost had our Ratty 10 years, and devoted everyday to making her days enjoyable and gratifying. We certainly didn’t want to “put her down,” but than, we realized that we were being selfish. Just looking into her eyes, and all the other symptoms she was having, we felt we needed to let go, and we finally did.
Performing this action in our home was truly an advantage, and so humane for all of us. We had the chance to love her, say our goodbyes, tell her how much we appreciated her throughout the years, and comfort her until the end. You were so supportive, accommodating, thoughtful and kind. Thank you for all you did to perform this relief in such a loving & caring way. We appreciated all your time and loving care. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Sincerely your,

Norbert & Truelene

I want to thank Transitions for being there when I needed them. You were recommended to me by my vet and I am so glad I took his advise. This was not the first time I’ve had to lose an animal. It’s never easy, of course, but Dr. Altman was so kind, so understanding. The whole procedure was done smoothly, warmly…my Belle benefitted from the way she was handled and treated and so did I. I am glad I chose to have her euthanized at home. She was always so nervous at the vet…I wanted her last moments to be at home- in a familiar, not a frightening place. Thank you, Transitions.

After researching in home pet euthanasia online, we decided that when it became time to help our 15 year old dog over the rainbow bridge, we’d be using the services of Transitions. Last night, (Sunday) we made the agonizing decision that now was the time. We contacted Anne at Transitions and didn’t expect to get an appointment last night but when we explained that we hoped our dog wouldn’t have to experience any more pain, Anne arranged for Dr. Sue Wilson to come to us at 7pm, just 90 minutes after our first call. Just as the other reviewers described, Dr Sue entered our home with a lovely calming energy and both of our dogs were immediately at ease. She patiently and quietly explained the process and encouraged us to have the younger dog present so he could get closure regarding the passing of his big brother. The whole process was peaceful, quiet, calm and dignified and we’re so happy that we were able to provide this quality end of life care for our dog who has given us so much over the years. Our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Sue for her caring and considerate treatment of our beloved boy and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is making this type of decision for their pet.
