Meet Dr. Cherie Buisson

Why choose us?

Pets nearing the end of their lives are often anxious, in pain, or difficult to move. Having our veterinary team come to you is an excellent way to reduce this stress. Personal observation of your pet’s environment also allows our team to make better recommendations for your pet’s comfort. For many dogs and cats, simple changes to their living arrangements can greatly improve their quality of life. You can also be more confident in the care of your pet knowing our support is just a phone call, text or email away.

When the time comes for your pet’s euthanasia, privacy and comfort are of utmost importance. We don’t want you worried about loud noises, curious strangers, or other distractions. Our focus (and yours) should be for your pet only. We want them in their bed, on their favorite couch, or on your lap. We want you to be able to express your feelings without the worry of being overheard. Most of all, we want you, your family, and your other pets to take the time you need to say goodbye. Each in-home euthanasia appointment is scheduled for a full hour, and you can take as much of that time as you want. We respect the bond you have with your pet and encourage you to share how we can help your family feel more peaceful during our visit. Hospice appointments are now longer than an hour. 

Meet The Doctor!
