We had the pleasure of having Doctor Smith and Keri come to our home on October 15th for our sweet baby girl Zoey. Immediately Zoey took to Doctor Smith giving her kisses. Zoey was always a very affectionate, sweet girl and I will really miss that! These times are so difficult, but they made sure we had plenty of time with her to say our goodbyes and they let us know everything they were going to do before doing it with what could possibly happen. I hate that we are having to use this service once again this year but I'm thankful that it is here for us to use. I wouldn't have used any other company. The people are very compassionate and I love that. Zoey was my first dog as an adult and I did not expect to love her so deeply. They really are part of the family, in fact I felt as if she was my child. We lost her at an early age due to cancer and IVDD. It all came so sudden. She was only 5 years old. This by far has been the most excruciating goodbye I ever had to say. I think the thing that meant the most to me is when Doctor Smith was also crying and asked for a hug. I'll never forget that, EVER! I really don't know how you guys could have made this experience any better and I thank you for having a service and such caring people.

I want to take a moment to thank the staff and most of all Dr. Smith and Carline. October has been the hardest month because we had to make a very difficult but unselfish decision to say goodbye to our King of the house. Our precious Tazzy (Taz-Man) Tazmania!!!!! :'( there is not a day that goes by that you are not thought of and missed. My child in animal form. But when I made the call to Sweet Dreams they were so professional and so caring. Having Dr. Smith sit with my baby and that is something that he did not allow (is for someone to walk in and get close). Her attention in her questions and over view of Tazzy she reassured myself and my daughter that we were doing the right thing. There is not a night that I do not cry because I miss him on the pillow next to me. When I adopted him I became acquainted with him sitting on a couch in his foster home, so I wanted him to Sleep forever in the same way with me on the couch holding him, as he crossed his paws and drifted off into his forever sleep I am somewhat at peace knowing that he is running and playing with his brother and sister (Cocoa and Smokey). Sweet Dreams you are the best and may you all be blessed, for the efforts that you do in making pet owners more at ease when they have to say good-bye. Blessings,

If you're reading this website, you're likely facing a very tough decision. One that none of us wants to have to make. And having never faced this with a pet before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I really appreciated so much about how Sweet Dreams helps with this process--from having a very thorough website to help you understand your options, to a very empathetic staff--you all helped to ease the emotional pain. From your kind receptionist, who very patiently listened when I called, and allowed me time to regain my composure, to Dr. Julie White and Samantha, who sat down with us and talked us through the entire process, and helped us say goodbye to our pet in the least painful way possible. Our kitty Angel lived to be 20 years . . . we are so grateful for the time we had and for how long she gave our family joy and companionship. Thank you for showing respect, dignity and care to both our pet and to our family at this difficult time. We truly appreciate your genuine compassion and are grateful to your team for guiding us through this difficult time.

My beloved Cairn Terrier, Emma, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the end of September with 1 month to 6 months to live. Her vet advised that we would need to euthanize because bone cancers are rarely a direct cause of death. I was heartbroken but knew I needed to do what was right for my sweet girl. The first thing I was sure of is that I wanted her to pass at home. Due to COVID, our vet was not performing house calls but instead recommended Sweet Dreams. The entire Sweet Dreams team was gentle and empathetic beginning with the receptionist I spoke with to get information to the team that came to our home. Our team consisted of Dr. Craig Quinlan and Victoria. It takes a special sort of person to be able to do the important work these beautiful souls do. They offered kindness, comfort, and reassurance on one of my worst days and I will be forever grateful to them. Thank you Craig and Victoria. Thank you Sweet Dreams.

Dr. Smith and her assistants came to the house last Friday after we called that same day (they were able to fit us in). They were the most sincere, professional, and comforting people in our time of great sadness. Even though our girl was up there in age it's never easy to make the decision because they are so a part of your family. I am so glad that we had Sweet Dreams help us to cross our baby over the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you all for being there in our sad time and for your support.
November 2, 2021
I wanted to tell your staff a sincere Thank You. Sweet Dreams helped us out with a difficult decision regarding our dear Tara. My wife kept saying how kind everyone was. I just wanted to say again Thank You for behaving like that when the rest of us were falling apart.

Our sweet Sierra had cancer that had consumed her quality of life and her pain was exceeding the medicine so we were faced with the difficult decision to put her down. This company made it so beautiful. They came into the house with the sweetest temperament and personalities placing Sierra at ease. They didn't rush us and remained genuinely sympathetic to us and our broken hearts. It was so beautiful that Sierra wasn't scared or anxious. She was home and in her bed surrounded by all of our family as she peacefully went to sleep and entered doggie heaven. We miss her tremendously but couldn't be more grateful for the service Sweet Dreams provided in our difficult time.

Ace was a huge, goofy white German Shepherd. He had been plagued with health issues most of his life, but he was fortunately able to see 12 years pass, living a full life for a Shepherd, before he succumbed to hip, liver and kidney problems. Being unable to stand up anymore, I knew it was time to have to make that very difficult decision. Being 90+ pounds and unable to walk at all, it was not feasible for me to take him to our normal veterinary clinic. Sweet Dreams was recommended to me, I was pleased with what I saw on their website, so I gave them a call.
Sweet Dreams made the whole process much easier. They were compassionate, friendly and professional on the phone when setting up an appointment. They sent a confirmation email shortly thereafter, with details of my appointment, and mentioned what I needed to do on that day. The morning of the appointment day, I received an email with an electronic form to fill out, then a phone call again confirming my appointment, with an approximate time window. I was told when Dr. Henson would call with a more exact time, which she did, and I knew within 20 minutes, when the team would arrive. They came inside, we all made introductions, then they went to meet Ace, and see if they needed to do anything special. I was told exactly what would happen, and they had me spend some time with Ace, as they were getting things ready.
I have had to have several pets euthanized over the years, and it is never, ever an easy thing to do. Sometimes the decision to do so is obvious and without a doubt, and sometimes one wonders if it is really necessary right now. If your pet is suffering and there is no hope for relief, then it is definitely time.
I was giving Ace treats, petting him, telling him what a good boy he was, and how much I loved him, when the medicine was administered and began to take effect. The team was very personable and professional while doing so, as well as very compassionate toward me, as I was crying my eyes out. The service came with a complimentary paw print and hair locks to remember Ace by, and they offered additional services such as cremation, etc. I opted to bury Ace in our back yard, because I have always done that with all of our pets.
Sweet Dreams made a very difficult and painful process easier and less painful than it had to be. I highly recommend them, if your pet is in a situation where there is only one way to stop the pain and/or suffering. I am very pleased with all aspects of the process, and the next time that I need to do this for one of my beloved pets, I would not hesitate to call them again.
I will never stop missing Ace, though. He graced our lives for 12 years, and I wish I was half the man that Ace thought I was. Unconditional love and instant forgiveness are what dogs are all about.

Thank you so much for the love and tender care that you showed our sweet girl, Sugar. Not only did you tend to her needs, you helped us and our other pup, Murphy cope with the loss our beloved Sugar.

We are so grateful for Dr. Quinlan and the team member who came to our home to help us with our pup. They both were so very wonderful, caring, calming, and professional. There is simply no better way to go through such a tough time than in-home with such a caring team and family as we helped our pup with what she needed. So much better for our family and pup than the traditional, stressful, trip to the vet.

We had to have our dog of 14 years put down yesterday due to severe arthritis. This sad day was made the best it could be by the compassionate care of Dr. Smith and Aimee. The information provided and their care should be commended. They carefully guided us through the whole process and Chance passed without any pain. We greatly appreciate Sweet Dreams during this hard time.

I had to put down my sweet cat Darwin about a month ago. He had several medical conditions but took a rapid downturn over a few day period and I had to make the decision to end his distress. Everyone from the person I made the arrangements with to the vet and technician were wonderful and so caring. This has to be a tough job and they handle it with grace, patience and calming compassion. Dr. Henson and the vet tech Rebecca explained the process from beginning to end and allowed me plenty of time to say goodbye. It was so much better to allow him to go peacefully at home on his favorite sleeping spot rather than having it done at a vet's office on a cold metal table. I would recommend Sweet Dreams to anyone. They were a referral to me from a friend that has used their services a few times as well for her dogs. Then they gently took him to deliver to the crematory so I wouldn't have to deal with that aspect of the process. I truly miss him every day but know he's at peace and is happy and healthy now.

The vet took time to explain things in a way my young daughter could understand. It wasn't scary for her in any way. It was very peaceful for our family and our dog. Our dog wasn't stressed having to travel to the vet and then we weren't distraught trying to drive home afterward.

One week ago today, I had to say goodbye to my sweet loving companion Charlie. It was very difficult for me but made easier by the caring professionals, Dr. Amy Crowder and her friend and tech, Aimee. They were skilled and comforting to me and my daughter as we loved him into the Rainbow Bridge.

Our happy little girl, Jessi, got cancer and life started to hurt. And she was scared --- this is a dog that chased bears, stared-down elk, and watched fireworks with her tail wagging. It was a terrible decision but Sweet Dreams provided a compassionate end for her.

We can’t thank Sweet Dreams enough and how much we appreciate them for the kindness and compassion they showed our sweet little Lucy. They gave us all the time we needed to say our good byes. We are so glad we had Lucy’s final hours at home. God Bless you Sweet Dreams for all the help and guidance you do for the pets and families to make this difficult decision much easier to cope. Lucy was carried out in a little basket and covered with a pink blanket. It was comforting to see peace on her face. You will always be in our hearts Lucy. Thank you Sweet Dreams you are awesome.

Even though it was time to say goodbye to our beloved Beagle, Buster - it was none the less a heartbreaking decision. Months ago it was brought to my attention that there were Vets that would come to your home and euthanize your pet and that pet would then be in the comfort of their own home/surroundings. I can't imagine having done this any other way. I cannot say enough about Dr. Henson and Rebecca (the Technician) who came to our house. There is not ONE thing that they could have done differently to have made the experience any easier for us - it was top notch all the way. The compassion they showed was clearly not put on for our benefit. They came in and explained exactly what was going to take place and made it clear that they would not rush us at any point. They were very gentle with Buster and gave us the opportunity to have as much time as we needed with him -not once did we feel rushed. I am so very grateful that this heartbreaking experience was done in such a gentle and loving way and we thank you so very much for that.

First: if you are reading this, you are struggling with a very difficult decision. This is not easy! Our precious Jasper had MVD and a cancerous tumor and started being unable to walk due to where the tumor was. After realizing surgery was not an option and knowing his quality of life was almost gone, we called upon Sweet Dreams. From the first phone call, the call back changing our minds, and the call back realizing it WAS time, they were 100% supportive. This was very sudden for us, so it hurt more than usual. Having previously experienced the "at the vet" euthanasia, we knew that in-home HAS TO BE THE WAY IT SHOULD BE DONE! Most pets are already uncomfortable going to the vet - there is no need to make their last moments even more uncomfortable. This way, they are HOME, with you/family and (as) comfortable (as possible). We were visited by Dr Henson and Samantha. I want to lay heavy praise on both of them. They both made this horrible moment as comfortable as humanly possible, for both my wife and I, along with Jasper and his brother and sister. Know that they are also available for consultation to know if it is time... They truly care!

I miss my 16 1/2 year old Shih'Tzu, Jack, every day, but it's comforting to know that he had a good death. Instead of a scary visit to the vet, he lay peacefully on the porch lapping up a bowl of ice cream. It was stress-free, quiet and serene. My thanks to Dr. Crowder and Allison for providing a beautiful passage for my good boy.

It has taken a while to get over the emotions and be able to post this testimonial. Two weeks ago we had to enlist the services of Sweet Dreams to euthanize our beloved dog GiGi. GiGi showed up to our house as a stray about eight years ago. A best as we could determine she was about three years old at the time. It didn't take long for her to work her way into our house and our hearts.
While she was a very independent and strong-willed dog she also enjoyed being loved on and showing her love for us. She enjoyed roaming around our property, hanging out with us by our pool and whenever we got in our pickup truck she was there to hop in the back and go for a ride. She was very lucky to have found us and we were even luckier!
She had slowed down somewhat in the last year but still enjoyed going for our daily walks, rides in the truck and eating. Rather suddenly she stopped eating and laid around with no energy. She was diagnosed with Lymphoma and we had to make the tough decision to end her pain and suffering.
I contacted Sweet Dreams and from the initial phone call through the peaceful passing of our beloved GiGi the staff at Sweet Dreams could not have been more helpful, understanding and compassionate. Doctor Henson and Technician Aimee arrived on schedule and respectfully explained the process and procedure. They gave us all the time we needed to grieve and say our goodbyes. We could not have asked more of them in helping end GiGi's pain and suffering. They were truly professional but more importantly compassionate and caring.
Thank you to all the staff at Sweet Dreams and Rest in Peace Sweet GiGi!

I can't recommend the services of these wonderful people enough. Our dog Rocky was declining more quickly than we anticipated from liver cancer, and we knew it was time to say goodbye. I called other numbers first, but once I spoke to Dr. Crowder on the phone, I knew I wanted to work with Sweet Dreams. She was empathetic and genuine; I trusted her immediately.
This was the first time we were able to "plan" this for one of our pets, and it was such a blessing. It's not easy when it seems they are having a "better" day, but we didn't want to see Rocky suffer more than he already had. In our home, Dr. Henson listened to everything we told her about his recent condition and helped confirm for us in a very logical way that we were making the best choice, which is exactly what we needed. She and her team were kind, patient, and professional. They guided us when needed and stepped away when appropriate. Everything was on Rocky's time and we never felt rushed. He ate peanut butter sandwiches in our living room as he fell peacefully asleep by our side. Once we had our time, he was handled with all the care and dignity he deserved.
We are so thankful to have found Sweet Dreams at just the right time. We miss our boy, but they made a tough day so much easier.

From the initial phone call to set the appointment (Rebecca was very patient while I spoke through tears), we were shown kindness, patience and compassion throughout the process. Dr Henson and Samantha were with us every step of the way explaining as they preformed the euthanasia, Molly left us peacefully and for that I am so thankful. This was by far the best option for us and for Molly, leaving in the comfort of her home. The after care was also exceptional, they made all the arrangements. Molly is missed so much, at times I still feel her presence in the house. Thank you Sweet Dreams.

We had the pleasure of having Doctor White and Rebecca come to our home in January 2021 during the pandemic. It's taken me a while to get up the emotions to write this. One of our dogs had a litter of puppies and one of them did really well until about the 10-12 weeks of age. Minnie suddenly couldn't keep anything down. We took her to the vet and they said she had megaesophagus. So we tried feeding her straight up and holding her upright after eating for the recommended time, but that didn't help and she would start throwing up while we would hold her. They sent us home with an I.V. bag to keep her hydrated, some anti-nausea medication, and some antibiotics because every time she would vomit it would aspirate into her lungs and we didn't want her to get pneumonia. Every time she ate she couldn't hold a thing down. We really did try everything we could possibly do. It was really, really heartbreaking. The vet couldn't figure out what was wrong with her, it was decided that she was just failure to thrive. I've had an animal pass away but never had to put one down and I sobbed forever. Doctor White and Rebecca were so nurturing and understanding. They both were great at making us feel comfortable and let us know everything they were doing before it was performed and the possibilities of what could happen. I don't think this experience could have went any better. I am thankful this service is available and Minnie was able to pass away in our home, her home, and with people she loved. This company is great and so are the people that work here. I didn't even know this actually existed until this year but am so thankful my husband found it. I can't tell you how great they are and how thankful I am for the Doctor and the technician that came, they were truly a God send!!

The wound is still fresh, but I wanted to thank you for your understanding, your compassion and the care you showed our sweet little Akuma. He lived like a star for these few months and made us remember why animals are so special. He helped us heal our broken hearts after our friend of 15 years Magneto passed in December. He gave us all the love he could in the short time he had and we'll treasure it always. Being able to say goodbye where he was the most comfortable and calm was all we could ask for.

I had to put down my sweet dog, Ace, a few days ago due to cancer. It was such a surprise because it was so sudden. Even though I was distraught, the entire process was made easier by Sweet Dreams, and by Dr. Smith and her technician, Aimee. Sweet Dreams helped me work everything out immediately when I had to make the difficult decision. Dr. Smith and Aimee were so caring and gentle throughout the whole process, and I cannot thank them enough. They treated my sweet dog with all the love and the care I could have asked for. They were so respectful and so caring towards my family. Again, I cannot thank Sweet Dreams enough for making such a painful process just a bit easier for me.

Thank you, Dr. Henson and Carline for going through the process with me, and giving me the time to grieve with Eko.

First off, anyone that is reading this is probably in the position I found myself after 16 years of owning my first pet. My baby girl Semi for all her life was in good health, and aside from yearly checkups an active Blue Tick hound that never had any issues. The first signs of ageing took place about 2 years ago, and though she was not as active as she was previously still could do everything she could before just not as fast. As time slowly went by she started having issues to the point where she could no longer get up on her own. At that point I knew I had to have a plan in place for the moment when she no longer would be able to carry on. I did everything I could for her, but even getting in the car which was one of her most favorite things was no longer an option. A co-worker mention services such as this, and I looked around for local providers. At the point when my pet could no longer walk I contacted Sweet Dreams to go through the motions of arranging a visit. Two weeks went by and I cherished every moment. My pet was simply done.. Dr. Crowder came and it was such a blessing.. As a pet owner you have a responsibility to give them the best care, and make the difficult decisions to let them peacefully surrender to a better place.. I don't foresee being a repeat customer of Sweet Dreams any time soon, as I don't have any other pets, but to anyone who is reading this, I assure you this was the best decisions and the most humane way I could imagine for my baby girl to go out.. If you are unsure of when to do this, or if this is for you, I can say 100% I have no regrets and they will be there in this last chapter of a bond that will last a lifetime.. They take this very seriously, respond immediately and will answer any questions you have.. Again, I don't know who will read this, but I feel your pain, as does Sweet Dreams.. They truly care, and you will be at ease in the end, I promise..

My experience with Sweet Dreams (Dr. White and Carline) was more than I hoped for during this difficult time. Making the decision to end my "Little Buddy's" life (Allie) was one of the hardest decisions I've ever made. It was made a bit easier because of the staff at Sweet Dreams. Thank you so much for your courteous and heartfelt service. The in home service is something that any pet lover should consider once going down this terrible, arduous path.

I cannot say enough good things about Sweet Dreams. We had come to the point where we had to make the heart wrenching decision to say goodbye to our beloved 14-year old dog, Oliver. The staff at Sweet Dreams was incredible - from the receptionist to the doctor and the technician. Dr. Sutphin and Rebecca were so kind, compassionate, patient and caring during the procedure. They explained everything they were doing and gave us the time we needed to say goodbye. Being able to do this at home made Oliver's passing so peaceful. Thank you for providing this service and for your incredible staff.

Thank you Sweet Dreams for helping relieve our Rebel suffering! Dr. Crowder and Aimee were amazing during this trying time. Dr. Crowder confirmed that our sweet dog was hurting and this was the best option for him.

Making the decision to let Goosy go was difficult. If you are in this situation, I highly recommend Sweet Dreams. We realized last year that Goose was suffering from doggie dementia. As his faculties started to decline, we had a hard decision to make. Our vet recommended Sweet Dreams to us. Goose hated riding in the car and was anxious at the vet so I didn't want the last thing I did with him to be a car ride to the vet's office. The team at Sweet Dreams were so kind and compassionate from the first phone call. Before, during and after the procedure, they explained everything that was going to happen. They made sure that Goosy's last moments were filled with peace and love. They gave us all the time we needed to say goodbye and were professional and respectful throughout. Being able to say goodbye to him at home while he sat in his own bed eating a plate full of scrambled eggs made this difficult situation much more bearable.

Our beloved Baloo passed away on 1/20/21. This big lug of love was 10 years old, 110 pounds and a 3 month old rescue dog. He survived cancer 5 years ago. Dr. Ingels & Dr. DeMorrow removed a 6 pound tumor & he underwent 5 rounds of chemo successfully. He was their miracle boy & we were gifted many extra years with our beloved Baloo.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to Dr. Ware & Samantha who graciously came to our home & helped Baloo pass peacefully. Every time I think of how kind they were to come & help Baloo I tear up. They were so compassionate, caring & understanding of Baloo and our grief over saying goodbye. This was was peaceful, calm, overwhelmingly sad and they supported us so well. I think of them as angels.
From the bottom of our family’s hearts we are so grateful for Dr. Ware & Samantha’s tenderness in helping us through these final moments.
Enjoy the pics of Baloo & God Bless you all at Sweet Dreams.
