Our beloved 13 year old Harry (Lab/Airedale) went very peacefully with the help of Dr Chad Alves. Chad took his time and let our family love and comfort Harry and say our goodbyes! We even fed him a nice triple-decker cheeseburger (listening to his favorite song by Sublime, "Summer Time and the Livin's Easy", just before he was put to sleep. Despite his illness, Harry had a wonderful life with us these past 13 years and he was our best friend:-> Chad was very nice and comforting and there was no pressure whatsoever. Seth wrote the following in honor of his beloved Harry:
"When I saw what my dog Harry was going through, it was breaking my heart, but somewhat I am feeling relieved because Harry is no longer suffering in pain. I am lonely without my dog right now. I cry, wonder why, and I try -- telling myself that I know my dog would not like to see me like this. What am I going to do? I wish it wasn't time for you to go and I love you so much that I did not want to let you go. In the sky up above, there was a dove looking down upon us. Harry was always very friendly, happy and one of us (a big part of our family)! When I met you when you were five months old, I will never forget how we met, when you were playing with your toy, showing off, whipping your head side to side and throwing your toy in the air. You were the best dog ever Harry! You melted my heart when I first saw you, and we have been together all those years, and now I am shedding tears since you are gone. I love you soo much Harry! May you forever RIP!"
Harry was also in an Old Navy commercial (with Magic the airedale dog), on a flying carpet ride, when he was three months old, so he is a very special celebrity as well as our best friend for life "bff"!

Thanks to Dr. Alves, we were able to say good-bye to Rabin at our own home. Dr. Alves was very kind and understanding and the whole process was no rush at all. He talked to us and waited until all of us were ready. Rabin could not have left in a more peaceful and comfortable way. The two-shot process made sure there was no pain at all. Rabin was very lucky to have Dr. Alves take care of his final moment.

Amazing service. He was flexible regarding our schedule and let us take all the time we needed to say goodbye to our Beau. We especially appreciated the two shots, the first to make the dog sleep and the second to euthanize. During the sedative process we were able to lay on the floor with Beau and hold him while he got sleepy, and he was not aware of the second shot. Losing a pet is so hard, this was the best way to end our baby's suffering.

Dr. Alves has provided expert, consoling service when our cat had to receive her last treatment.Having the procedure done in the comfort and privacy of our home was of invaluable to both our pet and ourselves. Her last hours were spent in familiar surroundings, foods, and family.

Dr. Alves' explanation of the procedure, performance of the protocols, and post-treatment sympathy and understanding provided us great solace during this difficult period.

We highly recommend Dr. Alves to all who will need either general at-home services or the final treatment for their cherished pets.

Dr. Alves is the most caring vet I have ever had minister to my animals. He put our cat down with caring and love. He just "went to sleep" without the stress on him and us of a trip to a vet office. I hope I never have to put another animal down, but I hope Dr. Alves is around if I do.

A real bargin for the services and care provided. I rocommend him without reservation!!!

Dr. Alves was unbelievably kind, gentle, unhurried, and informative to name a few qualities when we very recently (8/31/07) had to make the very difficult decision to euthanize our large senior female malamute mix of ~13+ years. All loving dog owners are eventually faced with this difficult decision. We would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Chad Alves for consultation and home euthanasia. He was so understanding and would have left and returned another time if we had changed out mind. We have never met a more compassionate vet which made a very difficult time so much easier for all involved. Thank you Dr. Chad Alves! We miss our girl so much, but are so grateful to you for making it dream-like for her while extending your incredible kindness to us.

i can't even get my cat into the car without getting scratch marks. then my cat makes the "oww" sound all the way to the vet office.

an in-house veterinarian was a blessing. the cat was put through a lot less stress as was i.

i don't do regular checkups on my cat, but i had Chad come in and take a look at my cat's anal cavity because it was pussing. chad actually keeps all the necessary materials with him so he doens't have to go back and forth wasting a lot of time. thankfully it wasn't anything serious, just a minor infection. otherwise chad will have you go to the office.

PROS: in home service!
CONS: none

Not only is Chad the nicest man, he will make house calls to care for your cat, dog or horse. He will come and give vaccinations, chip them plus lots more. The animals are so much more comfortable being taken care of at home. This is a fabulous service.
