In Home Pet Euthanasia

Peaceful & Compassionate Service

The hardest part about having a pet is the goodbye.

The decision for euthanasia never comes easy. Pets are part of our family and provide comfort,
laughter, happiness, peacefulness and calm in a sometimes chaotic life. We want the best for
them especially during their last moments with us. If this time can be spent in the comfort of
their own home, in their own bed with the family wrapped around them, this is the biggest gift
you can give them. I am here to assist you and provide the best possible experience during
one of the worst possible times.

Why I do This

Dr. Barbara Roach, DVM, CHPV
I grew up on Long Island and started my career in veterinary medicine at the age of 16 as the kennel assistant and manager of a busy small animal clinic during high school. I went directly from high school to SUNY Delhi and received my veterinary technician degree at the age of 19. This allowed me to work in the field of veterinary medicine while pursuing my bachelor’s degree from SUNY Binghamton. I graduated from Ross University Veterinary Medical School  and have been a practicing veterinarian since 1996.

I have worked in private practice for 27 years, in addition to being a state and federal veterinarian for 10 years. Since I started private practice, I have always had a great desire to assist owners and their pets during their senior years in the comfort of their own home.

In 2020, I initiated and completed the 18-month certification for the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care. I have always understood the need and desire of my clients to minimize the stress that veterinary procedures cause for their pets. My ability to help pets at the end of their life, at a time of need, in a non-stressful environment brings me peace and fulfillment. In addition, I hope it will bring you, as a pet owner, a peaceful lasting memory of your very special family member at a crucial time in yours and their lives.
