Testimonials

Sabina
We can’t thank Caroline enough for the gentleness and sensitivity she displayed when it came to putting our beloved Sabina to sleep.  This was one of the hardest decisions we had to make and being able to do this in our own home made this heart-breaking process as easy as it could be.  Caroline guided us through the process and gave us time and space to say our goodbyes in an environment that was stress free for Sabina and comforting for us.  Being able to do this process at home enabled Sabina to be surrounded by the same love she had experienced throughout her life. This allowed us to be able to look back and remember those last hours with her not as a time of pain but of being supported to show her one final act of love.  Thanks Caroline for helping us come to that place in such a professional yet caring way.

Duff
It’s such a tough decision to end the life of a long-term pet. We went back and forth on when was the right time. I wished he could have told us what his quality of life was like - and sometimes even wishing that I would wake up in the morning and find he had passed away in his sleep. Finally, we made the decision to put him down. After 16 years with our family, it was really important to us that we didn’t send him off in a clinical environment. Duff was suspicious of the vet clinic at the best of times. It was so nice to have some control of his last moments and to make sure he was calm and comfortable. It was much less stressful for us too. Nic has a gentle, kind nature that set us all at ease. I thought I would burst into tears, but when Duff was gone, I actually felt an immense relief and peace. I was grateful for all the good times we’d had with him and was glad to be done agonising over his clearly painful last months. It took us a while to get there, but I was sure in that moment that we made the right decision. It’s such a big moment for a family, I can’t imagine doing it any other way than at home with Our Pet’s Goodbye.

Maxine
Saying goodbye to Maxine (aka the Weasel) was just the pits.  It was a tough but necessary decision that we had been putting off for several weeks hoping she would rally the troops and come back fighting fit.  In Maxine’s last days her one true love was an occasional piece of bacon, but aside from that she wasn’t eating and was becoming more and more restless.  We called in Caroline at short notice and on a weekend and she was with us pretty darn quick.  We sat together with Maxine and exchanged stories for a time and Caroline talked us through the departure process.  After some more time with our wee fur baby, and some heavy teary moments, we gave Caroline the go ahead and our little girl went off to sleep nice and peacefully.
Caroline was just brilliant.  She took her time and spent some time to get to know our baby.  She was professional, sensitive to our needs and didn’t rush us.  We highly recommend Caroline for anyone wanting to farewell their pets in the comfort of their own home.

Jasper
This is Jasper, my gorgeous cat. When, at the age of 20 years old, I couldn’t bring myself to take him to the vet to have him put to sleep, Nic came to my place and with a lot of care and understanding, put him to sleep for me. Nic was just wonderful and I wouldn’t hesitate to have her again and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone else.​
