We understand it isn’t easy discussing euthanasia for your beloved pet. We will always be compassionate and understanding when you call us with your questions or to set up an appointment.
Euthanasia in the home allows you and your pet to stay in familiar surroundings. It reduces stress, and while still heartbreaking, it provides an atmosphere that cannot be achieved in a clinic.
We recommend that you visit our main pet euthanasia page which will answer many of the questions you might have about pet euthanasia, and we invite you to explore some of the other information to assist you such as the euthanasia process, preparing, and grief support.
As an owner, you know your pet the best. Dogs and cats can both be adept at hiding pain, but other times it can be very visible. We understand that you may not know if it is the right time or not. When you call us, we will ask you questions about your pet’s condition, which gives you an opportunity verbalize and consider their situation.
If you just aren’t sure, we can schedule an in-home Quality of Life Assessment. The doctor would come to your home and evaluate the current condition of your pet, which may help confirm that it is time to let them go, or occasionally, the doctor may find a condition that may be treatable and improve your pet’s quality of life.
We have a special interest in geriatric pets, and some pets can see remarkable improvement with regular pain management. We promise to be honest with you and give you our opinion about the quality of life your pet is experiencing, whether it is good news or not.
As the founding director of the Dove Lewis Pet Loss Support Program, I understand the importance of excellent communication, confidence and comfort with your pet’s veterinarian.
I have known Dr. Mesher professionally and personally for over 12 years. She is an exceptional veterinarian, knowledgeable, responsive, accommodating and caring. I regularly refer people to her because I know they will get exactly what they and their beloved pets need.”

I can't tell you how great everything turned out for one of the most difficult times in our lives. Dr. Dillon and tech Jen couldn't have been anymore compassionate, professional, sensitive and supportive.
After over 13 years, we had to make the phone call to have someone come to our home to help us through this difficult time. Linda on the phone was just as wonderful. She helped us though our hesitation, guilt and resolve. Do call, you will not be disappointed. Thank you PDX At Home Vets.

Dr. Louise Mesher is one of a kind. She helped ease the passing of my 13.5 yr old Golden Retriever with endless patience, compassion and kindness. Although it was the hardest decision I've ever made, she never pushed and was there helping the whole way.
I now use her as my regular vet for the rest of my furry babies. She knows, she cares, she is simply the best you will find. And it is fortunate that she comes to your home to alleviate the stress that the pets endure when going to veterinary offices. I recommend her highly!

Saying good-bye is one of the most difficult parts of having pets as our companions and I can't imagine having to go through this without the wonderful and amazing support we received from everyone at At Home Veterinary Services.
Dr Mesher was the one who helped us make our final decision to take care of our sweet girl and to do this for her, not to her. I will never forget how she and Angie held our hands and guided us along the way until we said our final good-bye.
If you ever need the service of an In Home Vet, please call them for the tough times, as well as the good ones. You will be so grateful
