We did this in May for our Maine Coon cat, Toby. He died in my arms, on our bed, and our vet and vet tech let themselves out. We had chosen ahead of time to take Toby ourselves to the crematorium when we were ready.
I can't imagine having to have taken him to the office.
My old guy is going to be 15 in December and he was never suppose to live past 10. My mom and I have been talking about in home euth because he is arthritic and getting him in the truck is so hard now-a-days. He also hates the vet's office since his favorite and long time vet moved cross-country.
We've decided that when he is ready that he'll be able to pass peacefully on his own dog bed in his own house surrounded by love.
I just had my 17-year-old dog put to sleep. At home. It was wonderful. She was napping when the vet got here, woke up long enough to sniff the stranger, and then went back to napping. The vet got it done quickly and it was the most peaceful, non-stressful euthanasia I've ever seen.
I really wish I had this option 3 weeks ago. There is nothing worse than having to make that phone call, then having to go stand in the waiting room knowing what is coming. I would gladly pay extra for the service; it would take a lot of stress away from the pet and the owner.
