  • ""Max gave us nearly 16 1/2 years of love until his last day, following us from room to room. The last year was especially meaningful due to the care provided by Dr. Watson, who managed his arthritis pain for optimal quality of life. In-home care was such a blessing and allowed Max to receive care without causing him distress. Of course, it provided us people with much comfort as well. We miss him very much! ""

She was kind and caring and allowed us to have our time together till the very end. I have used another Dr. for this service once before but Dr. Watson was the best. Being in the home is so very important to a pet-it alleviates extra stress on your loved one😿.""

  • ""Dr. Watson came the same day we called to help us put our sweet boy, Sweeney, to rest.

She allowed men to cuddle and talk to Sweeney and cry unabashedly through the whole process. I am grateful to her for her being here.""

    Jakob Shavinski
  • ""Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our beloved family dog who has been our constant friend for 13 years. We called Dr.Watson, a referral from our veterinarian, to come to our home so we could spare Duke any trauma from spending his last moments afraid at the vets office. Duke drifted off to sleep in his favorite place at home while we stroked his head. Dr. Watson is professional and yet so loving and compassionate. Thank you Dr. Watson for coming to our home and providing such a peaceful goodbye for us and for Duke. I wouldn’t do it any other way.""

    Mark Lara
  • ""In Lee Lee's final hour an angel knew how to escort her into Heaven with dignity and love. Dr. Watson was there within an hour and she allowed us to cuddle, talk and assure Lee Lee that she was safe with her loving family. Thank you, Dr. Watson, for your compassionate help in our time of need.""
    Mike and Marie Furney and Family
  • ""We were so happy to give our 13 year old german shepard 'Coal' a peaceful transition at home! This would not have happened without the love, care and graceful attention Dr. Watson provided. She guided us lovingly thru the process, careful to the needs of Coal as well as our own emotions, explaining matters all along the way.""
    Jeanne Urquiza
  • ""When our 12 year old rottweiler took an extreme turn in health we felt helpless. We called Dr. Watson and she was able to get to our home within 3 hours. The time, compassion, understanding, she offered was incredible. Her calm caring demeanor was so important to our kids. Several years ago, we had to put down our German Shepard at the vet's office. It was excruciating. Having Dr. Watson come to our home, allow Buster to peacefully drift off to sleep, was the best possible solution to a terrible situation. We highly recommend Dr. Watson. She is a true professional.""
