As veterinarians we know how stressful it can be for your pet to be brought to an unfamiliar environment. The drive to a veterinary hospital is a particularly difficult trip when your pet is geriatric, sick or is fearful of the veterinary hospital or of car rides. We understand that the timing or accessibility of a home euthanasia is difficult for most family veterinary hospitals to accommodate. The Gentle Goodbyes veterinary team was formed to make the option of a home euthanasia available to the Boise, Idaho and to the greater Treasure Valley area. Our hopes are that we can make what is an excruciatingly difficult decision as stress free as possible for you and your family, and as calm, safe, and gentle as possible for your dog or cat. Additionally, we want you to have the confidence that your pets are being offered a respectful and conscientious cremation service.
Who are we? Gentle Goodbyes is a team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians who collaborate together from multiple veterinary hospitals throughout the area. All of our veterinary professionals have joined up with Gentle Goodbyes in addition to the busy lives that they lead working within a veterinary hospital. They participate in this organization because they strongly believe that the option of a home euthanasia should be available for the pets of our area and they participate because they care!
