Memorialize Your Pet

Gentle Goodbyes is a team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians who collaborate together from different veterinary hospitals in the community. Our veterinarians and technicians choose to be a part of this organization because they have all seen the tremendous difference that it makes for the animals and for the owners when they can remain in the privacy and comfort of their own homes during this difficult moment. The Gentle Goodbyes organization was created so that owners in the Treasure Valley area would have the option of being able to choose in-home euthanasia for their pet's farewell. All of our veterinary professionals participate in Gentle Goodbyes in addition to their traditional roles where they work within a veterinary hospital.

With each phone call that we receive requesting home euthanasia, a veterinary team is individually recruited to come to your home. As a result of this, a euthanasia service may only be available on specific days or at specific time blocks and must be prearranged with an appointment. We do our best to accommodate emergency euthanasias when they arise but because of our volunteer team structure this is, unfortunately, not always possible.

Pre-planning and understanding the progression of your pet's disease process may help you to avoid getting into an emergency situation when the euthanasia is needed. Please see the tab labeled How Do I Know When It's Time? on our 'Quality of Life' page.

Visit our page titled 'What Happens at a Euthanasia' for further information about our visit.

"When making the decision of when to euthanize your sick pet, it is better to be a week too early, than an hour too late".

In essence, no one wants to end up in a crisis situation, in a sterile exam room, or at a strange emergency hospital in the middle of the night because they waited too long to make this decision. Even if you are a little too early, at least you will be ensuring that your beloved pet dies peacefully at his own home, surrounded by family... exactly where he or she belongs.

IF YOU ELECT FOR A CREMATION SERVICE, ADDITIONAL FEES WILL APPLY.
If you elect cremation options for your pet then we will arrange for your pet to be transported to the crematorium. Cremation costs are based on your pet's weight and whether or not you want your pet's ashes returned to you. Please inquire with a Gentle Goodbyes veterinary assistant about the costs of cremation for your pet.
