My husband and I recently used Gentle Touch to come to our home to have our 11 year old dog dying of cancer put to sleep. We didn't want to add to his pain by taking him to the vets office to have it done and our vet recommend Gentle Touch. The vet and her assistant were great! They made us and our dog feel very comfortable. The experience was so much better than having it done at the vets office. They gave him a sedative before putting him to sleep which made the transistion more comfortable for our dog and us. We would recommend Gentle Touch and their services to anyone in our situation or for any dog that just doesn't like going to the vet. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Dr. Christi Jones at Gentle Touch is amazing! I would highly recommend her if you would like a vet to come to your home. The experience is so much better than subjecting your little one to a crowded veterinary office. We had the unfortunate circumstance of having to put our dog to sleep after a long fight with oseosarcoma (bone cancer). When I heard that she would be able to perform euthanasia at home, It put my fears of a "final vet visit" at ease. She was so kind and caring. She explained the entire process and made the last moments with my Baby Girl as peaceful as possible. The experience was filled with compassion, love and kindness.

When it was the end for our beloved dog, I knew I didn't want to take him to the vet. He was a big dog, and he stressed out so much at every vet's visit that it was traumatic for everyone involved. I just couldn't put him through that at the end. I called Gentle Touch and Dr. Christi was so kind and compassionate that I immediately made arrangements with her. She and Jill came and put our baby down with so much gentleness and kindness that it's hard to describe. They treated him with respect, and treated us with compassion. As bad as the memory of putting him to sleep is, it's alleviated somewhat by the fact that it happened at home, in familiar surroundings, with love and his 'people' at his side. He did not stress out at all. I only wish I'd known about their extraordinary service earlier so I could have avoided years of dreading the vet's office visits. Updated: We had to put our second dog to sleep a few months ago and again used Dr. Christi and Jill. It was, again, an extraordinary experience--calm, loving, stress-free. I can't express how meaningful it is to know the loss of your pet is handled with the love and care that Gentle Touch provides.

We highly recommend mobile vet, Dr. Christi Jones, and her assistant, Jill. They are extremely knowledgeable, professional, conscientious, and compassionate; genuinely concerned with the welfare and health of our pets; and, considerate of the emotions of the animal's human parents, too. Simply put - they're the BEST! We love that they come to our home for emergency needs and concerns, as well as annual vacinations. We have a cat who almost died because of her anxiety traveling in our car to a vets office, so that option is now completely out of the question for us. After contacting quite a few mobile vets, we feel so blessed to have found Dr. Christi and Jill. When we have a concern, we call them. Either Dr. Christi or Jill will walk us thru the steps we need to take to provide care and comfort for our pet until they can arrive. And, they always schedule an appointment as quickly as possible... one time they left our home at 7:30pm on a Friday afternoon - now THAT's dedication!!! Their rates are very reasonable. Their love and compassion for our pets is reflected by the gentle care and advice they give. We'll ALWAYS use them for our pets!

We were faced with having to put our beloved dog to sleep because of bone cancer. We couldn't bear to take him in to the vet office where he had gone so many times before. Dr. Christi and Jill came to us with gentle compassion and allowed us to say goodbye where he was comfortable. They were professional answering our questions before we even asked them and were a great comfort to us in a very bad time. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone who finds themselves in the same position.
