Dr Suzen Gregersen, DVM MBA CHPV MRCVS is one of only a handful of US Certified Vets in the UK within the field of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care and is the owner and founder of Vets2Home – Peaceful Pet Goodbyes. Dr Suzen has personally been helping families and pets find peace at home since 2005, by offering comfort care, end-of-life emergency vet services 7 days a week, and gentle pet euthanasia. Since 2014 she has been sharing this important task with her trusted Senior Vet, Dr Joaquin Feliu, BVSc MRCVS,
Dr Suzen and Dr Jo offer end-of-life care for all your pet’s needs. We help you and your pet stay at home, coming out to you – without the stress and worry when faced with the end of your life-journey together. Our two expert vets help make this last treasured time as special and pain-free as possible while also ensuring that the last few moments, days or months you have left together, can be enjoyed fully. Your pet’s comfort and the whole family experience is paramount to us in every carefully considered step we take with you regarding your companion’s care towards the end.
We want you to keep your ailing pet comfortable and with you for as long as possible – without extra worry, pain or travel. We are truly specialists in our field with many years of experience in helping pet and supporting families in knowing when the comfort and joy has disappeared and pain and suffering is taking over in your pet’s life.
Please download our daily or weekly Quality of Life check form and scoring chart from the link above to help ease your mind and monitor your pet’s daily comfort levels. This will help you to know when ‘the time’ is getting closer.
Our premium, specialist and personal service (since 2005) is to help give beloved pets and their families the most gentle and peaceful parting experience in the comfort of their own home. Putting your dog to sleep at home, we believe after having been vets in normal practice too, is the very last gesture of love, “a real gift of peace” when all other options have been exhausted to keep your pet comfortable.
Likewise, putting your cat to sleep at home, will give him or her the ultimate pain relief, without stress or travel, when it’s most needed and nothing more can be done. Gentle pet euthanasia at home, always with a pain-free tailored sedation first, is ‘The Loving Choice’ and last gift we have for our beloved furry family members when your cat’s or dog’s quality of life has gone. We truly believe the saying that one week or even one month ‘too soon’ is a far better choice than even one day ‘too late’. A good, planned pet euthanasia at home makes for good lasting memories, for the whole family.
We at Vets2Home take the care and handling of your pet very seriously, both before, during and after a peaceful pet euthanasia at home. For that reason we only work with one of the most highly accredited pet crematoria in the UK, Chestnut Lodge Pet Crematorium and Pet Cemetery. We have a range of options available to honour your pet afterwards.
Chestnut Lodge is a founding member of the APPCC who are independently inspected and adhere to the stringent APPCC Code of Practice always ensuring respectful and gentle handling of your beloved pet throughout the whole process. We can guarantee your special companion will be handled with the utmost care and respect at all times, just as if he or she were our own pet.
Dr Suzen is the founder and owner of Vets2Home - Peaceful Pets Goodbyes and one of the first certified animal hospice and palliative care vets in the UK. From the time of graduation as a vet and starting her pioneering mobile vet practice in 2005, being a devout animal-lover and animal welfare advocate, Suzen has been passionate about helping animals in their own home have a peaceful end.
She is a Board Member of the International Association for Animal Hospice & Palliative Care (IAAHPC) and Executive Consultant for Compassion Understood. She is also the UK Instructor for CAETA, training veterinary professionals in the UK in end-of-life & pet euthanasia skills as she is a leading specialist in veterinary palliative medicine and home euthanasia. She is the proud parent of two rescue dogs, Sundae and Romeo and her beloved cat Dolly. She also has non-furry children!
Dr Jo is a Vets2Home's Senior Veterinary Surgeon, and has extensive experience from clinical practice. He joined Dr Suzen in 2014 as an end of life mobile vet. He is married to Beccy and the proud dad of Joaquin Jr. and their Springer Spaniel, Luna. Dr Jo's warm, soft-spoken nature, his professionalism and care are a natural match for Vets2Home's specialised services and our clients are always very impressed with his natural kindness and compassion.
Dr Jo says, "I had the opportunity to work with Suzen, and straight away I realised that this was what I was missing when working as a vet in general practice. Pet euthanasia at home proved to be a very different experience than the clinical procedure it is in a busy vet practice. The very reason that I wanted to be a vet was to help animals - and their humans - from the very beginning to the end of their lives, so offering pet euthanasia services at home was an opportunity not to be missed."
