Halo L.'s recent Euthanasia
Message:
Thank you so much for your kind care of our very painfully sick boy. Because of you his suffering was short and his dignity was preserved. We miss him greatly. Seeing how that his dignity was as important to you as it was for him and us, has made all the difference. The experience has made it easier for our Miss Heidi to move through the grief steps, ensuring her physical and mental health... Thank you very much Claudia & John.

So happy that we chose The Good Life
Message:
We're so grateful that Dr. Hite was there for our dog Annie at the end. From the very first time I contacted her to when she dropped Annie's ashes back to us, she was patient, compassionate and informative. Annie passed so peacefully at home surrounded by family and I'm so thankful that we were able to do it this way. I thoroughly recommend The Good Life to make a heartbreaking process a little less painful.

Rosa's goodbye
Message:
Hi Dr. Claudia, I want to thank you once again for helping us with the passing of one of our angels. Just as before, you were available when we and Rosa needed you. The peacefulness of her passing does help with one of life's hardest decisions. We have lost many pets as we tend to rescue older pets and I have experienced way too many of them leaving us.. You truly made this event easier to handle with your obvious compassion and caring ways. You also helped our Kiera pass, sadly from the same cancer as Rosa and the experience was again handled with dignity and great care. I highly recommend using this home service if at all possible.

Warmly, Tim, Susan, Doshka & Noble

Our Beautiful Bella
Message:
When we heard our girl didn't have much time left we knew we wanted her home when her time did come. On Sunday 10/16/16 we said goodbye. The entire experience was just what we hoped for. So peaceful, Bella our beautiful girl surrounded by her family, quiet with no added stress on her. The doctor was so gentle, gave us space so we could also share this with our other dog and gave us time to grieve. One of the hardest things we've ever had to do, but The Good life for pets made this hard time easier for all of us. Thank you.

Kind care for our Daisy
Message:
We can't say enough about the kindness and thoughtfulness Dr. Hite showed to us and our special kitty, Daisy. She was prompt in returning correspondences with us. We so appreciated her respectful attention to every step of the grieving process. Her sweet, calm demeanor meant so much to us during this difficult time.

Roxanne
Message:
Dr Claudia Hite was at our home yesterday helping us to say goodbye to our dog of 14 years, Roxanne. She did the most beautiful and perfect job in helping us to be present and also helping us to begin to grieve. I can not say enough wonderful things about this service. Everything went so smoothly. Everything was explained in great detail.

The Good Life Services
Message:
I just wanted to express the BIG thanks to The Good Life and most of all to Dr. Hite. I contacted her 3 days before our decision to put our dear Lab down. He had been battling an ear infection his entire life which it seemed but this time I believe there were several underlying issues going on with him to decide to finally keep him from suffering. 15 years, 5 months and 1 week old until he finally could not get up on his own nor control his body. When Dr. Hite arrived after speaking on the phone with her 3 days prior she gave him a thorough exam and she explained his quality of life was not good and he would pass soon on his own if we did not do it now. I could not see him suffer any longer so I opted for the Euthanasia. He went away peacefully, although very difficult to see your pet take go this way I feel so much better I did this. He fell into a deep sleep. The medication was injected into him releaves his pain which I witnessed breathing more deeper than the painful shallow breaths prior to to the injection. He slept for about 5 - 10 minutes and went calmly away, Dr. Hite provided a stretcher that we put Deebo on. He was wrapped in a blanket and strapped in and put in the back of the vehicle. Also, Dr. Hite shaved some of his hair and put in a wrapped baggy and gave us a rock with Deebo's name on it. My daughters love it. We also are getting him cremated and Dr. Hite will contact us and deliver him to us...I would not have it any other way and feel and know this was best for him. I will miss my Big man and I know I will see him again...Again, Thank you Dr. Hite and The Good Life for all you do, Words cannot express how thankful I am.

King "Harry" H.
Message:
Dr. Claudia - Thank you so very much for helping us make the painful decision to let our sweet Harry go. He lived 19 1/2 years, and spent 15 1/2 of those years with us. He was a very important part of our family, and we miss him everyday. The services that you provide made it much easier, not only for us, but especially for Harry. Not only did your kindness help us through this difficult time, but your thoughtfulness as well. We appreciate all of the little mementos more than you'll ever know.

Bruno's passing
Message:
I can't thank Dr. Claudia and The Good Life enough for their assistance with our beautiful boy's passing. Saying goodbye was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Dr. Claudia was very responsive - was able to come same-day, in fact - and was so kind, gentle, and compassionate. We were able to cuddle up with Bruno in front of the fire (his favorite spot) during his last moments, and there aren't words to describe how grateful I am for that. We truly appreciated the small gestures as well - the nose- and paw-prints she took prior to dropping him off at the mortuary, the fact that she personally "brought him home" afterwards. Thank you so much, Dr. Claudia, for making such a painful experience just a tiny bit more bearable.

Georgie
Message:
Dr. Claudia, Thank you so much for helping us through our toughest day with our sweet old Georgie girl. She was in her own bed, calm and peaceful which was more than we could have hoped for. We appreciate your kind care in walking us through such a difficult situation. We will remember you and definitely recommend your services for our friends.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart
Message:
I just wanted to say how deeply grateful I am. Last night, we had to put our dachshund to sleep. And the gal that arrived was so gentle, loving, sensitive, kind, the list goes on. Our boy went peacefully in his bed instead of a vets office. And that gives me joy and peace. Not to mention the painted stone with his name. I cannot thank you guys enough. What you do is so hard but such a blessing and gift to animals and their families. Thank you again.

Thank you for your compassion
Message:
When out 13 year old Belgian Tervuren was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor in his pelvis, it was heartbreaking news. I knew I wouldn't' take him to the vet for euthanasia, and his Doctor recommended The Good LIfe for Pets for their home service. Dr. Hite came out to help Bodhi pass, and it was as good of an experience as we could have hoped for. I am so thankful he had a dignified exit, in the yard, under the trees he loved, calm and peaceful. Thank you.

Jansen
Message:
It has been a month since Jansen's passing and it's still very difficult to write this review, but I know it could help another family in the same situation. We were nervous to pick a vet to provide at home euthanasia but also knew that we didn't want his last hour to be spent driving to and waiting in a cold vet office. We called the Good Life for Pets on Saturday and she was able to come the next day to our home to help us say goodbye to our sweet boy. Dr. Hite was kind, patient, and extremely professional. She helped Jansen say farewell on his terms and we are so grateful for that. Thank you.

Our cat Xena
Message:
Several weeks ago our much loved cat Xena became ill with acute kidney failure. My wife and I tried to see if we could give her a quality of life and extend her life, but it soon became clear that we needed to put her to sleep. Dr. Claudia was very gentle with Xena, we detected no sign of Xena experiencing any pain or discomfort during the procedure. She was also very understanding of my wife and my emotional state. We previously had to put another pet to sleep at a veterinary office and while the staff was very kind there too, the experience was not nearly as comforting for the animal or for us as it was for her to go to sleep in the familiar surroundings of her own home with my wife and I petting her. My wife and I both want to thank Dr. Claudia for her kindness and compassion. Without going into details she went above and beyond what we expected in order to prevent Xena any unnecessary suffering. Should you sadly need this service we would highly recommend her to you.

My old girl, Blue
Message:
It's been over half a year since Blue left to cross Rainbow Bridge and I couldn't be anymore thankful for the love and support my family received from The Good Life. My family was guided through the entire process by the caring doctor who arrived at our home. Blue was given a small injection to remove any pain she was experiencing from old age before the process even began. Dr. Hite provided us the option of a pain free passing when the only other option was a long, painful one and for that, I will forever be greatful.  -Kaytlynn G.
