When you see a decline in the health and habits of your beloved .. loyal pet..and your intuition tells you s/he won't get better..the emotional brain doesn't want to we needed someone skilled to evaluate and guide us in making a very difficult decision. When our family chose to call Sweet Dreams it was because we wanted to do the best for our Ozzie and need guidance..From beginning to end.. Sweet Dreams came to our rescue and provided the expertise and understanding we needed to do the right thing for Ozzie,  There was absolutely no doubt as to what we needed to do by the time the physician explained the physical nature of what Ozzie was experiencing and how he was probably trying to hold on and show bravery for us.

So..surrounded by family..lots of love and plenty of tears,,we said good-bye to Ozzie as he ate his last meal and we told him he didn't have to protect us any more.  It couldn't have been more perfect and Ozzie was peaceful.  The service also took Ozzie from our home afterward to be cremated. The entire process was discreet, empathetic and loving.  We tell everyone..everywhere we go of the amazing group of people at Sweet Dreams. I can't say enough about the entire beautiful..loving and caring staff at Sweet Dreams.Deborah H.

Our dog, Howie, was having some deteriorating health recently. He was 14 and a beloved member of our family. After a difficult decision, we called Sweet Dreams. When they arrived, they were lovely. They said hello to us, but got right down on the floor with Howie to give him some love, too. They took time explaining the process and at no time did we feel rushed or that they didn't care.

It was peaceful for Howie at the end, being at home and surrounded by love. We were able to hold him while we said goodbye to our big 95-lb furbaby. They were respectful of our grief and even as they removed Howie from the house, they did so with care and gentleness.

This service was a godsend for our family - giving us the opportunity to have Howie home with us at the end. I wouldn't have wanted it to be any other way. Thank you, Sweet Dreams, for what cannot be an easy task, but what has provided us with comfort. Allison

Our 12-year old Shepherd mix, Chance, had been going downhill for a while. But over last weekend, he took a rapid decline and could no longer walk. We could tell he was struggling with the pain. So we made the most difficult decision, and found Sweet Dreams through the web. We made a call to them on a Sunday night, and even though they didn't have a listed open appointment, Dr. Crowder and her assistant, Margaritta, came to our house early the next day. I was amazed by their compassion and professionalism.

It's never an easy thing to do, but they made it as easy as possible for both Chance and for us as grieving pet parents. They were patient with us and explained each step along the way. Chance passed peacefully and quickly. When it was over, they even gave us some private moments to allow our other dog to see Chance before we removed his body from the house. When the time comes for you to give your pet an easy passing, I highly recommend them.

As all four of us gently removed Chance's body from the house, a red-tailed hawk perched on a limb just over our heads to watch. Our belief is that the hawk was sent as a messenger to tell us that Chance was over the rainbow bridge and that we made the right decision, both to help Chance pass when we did and to do so at home.

Our 16 year old cat named Kit was so terrified of going to the vets office that last visit there she even bit me, her loving owner! That aside, she grew very sick and I called Sweet Dreams. The last thing I wanted to do was traumatize this cat during her last hours. Kit was in her favorite spot and she felt absolutely no pain. It truly was peaceful and she no longer suffers. Dr. Smith and her tech were so consoling to me and so loving to our beloved pet. Also, I was struggling with a decision and I knew it was time and yet your vet wanted to pursue more testing and more pain to the animal. Sweet Dreams validated my thought process and assured me this decision was now what was truly best for my pet. I even hugged them when they left (and I a not a hugger!). Sweet Dreams Kit.Anne Olson

Sweet Dreams made a difficult time letting our Sasha go much easier. We are grateful for their service to come to our home so we could say goodbye while holding her in our arms. The ladies were respectful and showed much caring for us and for Sasha. It is terrible to have to let a pet go but there is an alternative than the standard vet office experience. Sasha was suffering and the last thing we wanted was to take her out of the environment she felt safe in. Sometimes loving a pet is letting them go even though it is SO hard to do. Using Sweet Dreams (which was recommended by our vet) was a good decision to make. Once you schedule the visit they will take over from there and all you have to do is love your pet. Sweet Dreams make all the arrangements you request so it makes the situation less stressful. We are still grieving for our Sasha but we are thankful to Sweet Dreams in helping us through the process. Bless them and their work - Run Sasha Run - You are young again and strong. Jann Yvette

I'm thanking "Sweet Dreams" for the superb and professional service they provided in caring for my family member "Max" I was distraught and didn't know which way to turn. I searched online and found Sweet Dreams. They created and provided a caring and comforting environment and treated Max with respect and dignity. They also allowed me to express my loss and took time to explain the process, while allowing time for my grief. Today, I thank God for Sweet Dreams. Tanis

I would recommend Sweet Dreams to anyone who must say goodbye to their friend. It's a sad fact that if we love animals and they let us share their lives we will have to say goodbye way too soon. Bailey was a nearly 16 year old German Shepherd mix and after weeks of agonizing over the decision I knew it was time. Dr Bahr and Jasminne were exceptionally kind to a man who couldn't stop crying. They were gentle and respectful with Bailey. They were competent and professional. Instead of taking a trip to the vet in her last moments she was able to rest in one of her favorite spots. Thank you Sweet Dreams. Rod Z

We had been anguishing for several weeks, with the difficult decision of when to let Lucky beagle go. He was blind, deaf, and becoming more feeble, and we hated the thought of traumatizing him with a trip to the vet. I had found Sweet Dreams online a while ago, and felt this would be the most gentle way to say goodbye to Lucky. Dr. Crowder and Heather were such kind souls, and we were so grateful with the compassion and respect shown to Lucky, and to us. Our sweet boy was surrounded by warmth and love, and I know he didn't suffer. Our heartfelt thanks for helping us through this time. Barb Russell

Just about a year ago we rescued 2, 4 month old kittens. They were brother and sister (Hyde & Jackie) and as cute as could be. A few weeks before his 1st birthday Hyde was diagnosed with FIP, an incurable fatal disease.

Although we tried our best to treat his symptoms the disease was overwhelming him. It's was so painful to watch this once energetic and playful cat sit crouched for hours starring at the floor or wall. As much as we wanted to hang on to Hyde we knew it was time to say good bye and end his suffering.

We contacted Sweet Dreams and Dr Crowder scheduled an appointment for the following day.

Dr Crowder and her tech, Margarita arrived right on time. They were so professional and understanding of our feelings at this difficult time. They explained the medical process and answered all our questions. As we sat in our living room, Hyde was in our loving arms. Dr Crowder administered the medication and we were able to love on Hyde as he left us and his sister. We promised to watch after her for him.

Dr Crowder and Margarita allowed our family time alone and when we were ready, carried Hyde away with such dignity. Our family is so appreciative for their service and professionalism. Mark & Patty Turpen

I want to tell anyone considering Sweet Dreams to make the decision to use this caring group of people. They were very communicative throughout the appointment stage. Additionally, they were kind and let me have the time I needed with Cricket when they came to my home, and also talked to me about Cricket's disease. I am so glad we had this painful process done at home, where Cricket was put to sleep in her bed, rather than from traumatizing her in the car. Everything about the process was the best it could be under the circumstances, thanks to these people. Cami Fowler

Calling Sweet Dreams was one of the best decisions I've ever made for my sweet kitty Tinky. Her heart was so stressed from thyroid disease I don't think she could've endured the short trip to the vet. Dr. Smith and Stacy were so incredibly warm and supportive throughout the entire process to enable my little angel to peacefully pass to the other side. Their consoling words were extremely helpful at a time of such anguish ... and were prepared to stay until my husband and I were ready to say goodbye. Robin Borland

I will forever be grateful to Dr. Crowder and Leigh for their services when I finally realized it was time to let my dear Gozo (pronounced Goso) Kitty go. These two dear ladies drove all the way out to my house in Dallas and had the patience of saints. The day I called I was in tears. The day they showed up, I thought I had my emotions under control until I opened the door to let them in, and then I cried the whole time they were here. They reassured me that it was ok to cry. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. They answered all my questions and talked me through the whole process. They were so calm and gentle and personal yet professional. We all three sat on the floor with Gozo when it was time to say goodbye. These women must be called to do this, because they are gifted. They helped me prepare his body for the drive to my Mom’s house where I would bury him. I can’t praise them enough. I feel quite confident, now that I have had time to process this decision, that it was the best thing I could do for my cat. He hated the vet and he loved visitors. He thought he was receiving visitors to enjoy his wonderful presence….and he was. J He never once showed any of the normal signs of aggression and distress that he faithfully showed at the vet. He seemed peaceful throughout the process. I am so so grateful for your service, and that my cat’s last moments weren’t filled with the terror that he normally felt at the vet. His last moments were peaceful and happy. I pray your kindness is returned to you a hundred fold. God bless you both. Cheryl Bennett

It was with a very heavy heart that I called Sweet Dreams to euthanize my beloved Chihuahua Nicky. He had battled heart issues for the past 6 years. The meds were no longer working. His body was shutting down and I knew it. Dr Crowder and Leigh could not have been any kinder or more compassionate. Their concern for not only me and my boy but my Children was just amazing. They have such a peaceful way about them that is truly a gift. They made a very difficult situation manageable. Nick was terrified to go to the Vet so it was much easier for him to be in his home, surrounded by the people he loved. He went very peacefully. This was the final gift I could give to a sweet boy that gave his all , everyday to his Family. Nick, run free and find your sister. See you again someday my little man.

Sweet Dreams was truly a fantastic service. They were so perfect to work with. They responded immediately, and were very understanding and flexible when we kept rescheduling. Most of all, they were calm, helpful, supportive and caring. We have told everyone just how wonderful Leigh and Dr. Bahr were to work with, and in managing the delicate task of putting our dog to sleep. Considering traumatic situation we had, they were a joy to have around.

Taking time to Grieve
Losing a pet can be similar to losing a family member.
It is not an easy thing to experience and grieving is necessary. Everyone is different in their grieving process and I encourage families to allow everyone in the family to grieve differently.

Take time to grieve the special relationship you had with your pet. Some people spend more time with their pet than extended family members and friends, so treat the loss accordingly.

One suggestion is to plant a flowering perennial in honor of your pet. Every spring, when the plant blooms, you can be reminded of your loved pet.
