Doorstep Vet: Euthanasia at Home
The History of Doorstep Vet
Hello, I'm Casey. During my time as a general practitioner in Austin, Texas, I began to notice a real problem in the way in which we approach end-of-life care. Wrapped up in the non-stop energy of wellness care, internal medicine, and surgery, I found that I and my colleagues were unable to slow down and be there for our patients and their families who were going through this final and very important life stage. It isn't that we didn't care, it's that we couldn't stop and breathe. How could we prioritize death over life when there were patients to treat, surgeries to perform? But, as I practiced and learned about medicine and about life, I realized a simple fact: every life ends in death.
And so I stopped and took a breath . . . and Doorstep Vet was born. Here we pay time and attention to the smaller things, we slow down and enjoy what life we have--both our own and that of our patients. We don't see twenty appointments in a day, we see three. We bring simplicity, peace, and comfort to our clients and to our patients. I'm still breathing and I've never looked back.
You can only spend your last moments with your pet once. We pledge to you that we will do everything within our power to help you make the most of this time. From helpful suggestions that we've seen other clients enjoy in the past to always accommodating your requests--we are here for you.
The Doorstep Vet Difference
Doorstep Vet is not your typical veterinary practice. We're not even your typical house call vet or end-of-life vet. Here we concentrate on the most important thing to you during this difficult time, whatever that may be. You've had enough pain and trouble already; our mandate is to make this time as easy on you as we can.
If you don't have it in you to talk to anyone, you don't have to. You'll find everything you need to know right here, and if you don't then just email us. We will email you back promptly with answers to all of your questions. We've even had clients who barely spoke during their actual visit, and that's ok. If we could manage to let you have this time in complete solitude, we'd do it.
If you need to talk to someone then we're here for you, too. Call us right now, we can answer your questions and schedule your appointment. Or we can just be there to hear about your pet or your concerns: (512) 387-1555.
The Doorstep Vet Difference is simple: it is whatever you need it to be.
