“I am so grateful for Home Heart Vet for their care during such a hard day and hard decision. Getting to spend the afternoon saying goodbye to my cat at home (not at the vet, which my kitty hated so much) meant everything to me…The procedure was so well crafted, as many other reviewers have mentioned, full of compassion and letting us have a proper goodbye. The vet and tech were just amazing. Thank you so much.”
