Dr. Nicole Kennedy - Founder, Pets Remembered

My name is Dr. Nicole Kennedy. I am a practicing veterinarian in Sarasota, FL, and founder of Pets Remembered.

Pets Remembered grew out of my patients’ requests for an in home pet euthanasia alternative to the clinical, and by necessity public, experience of in-office euthanasia.

My goal is to provide an alternative where a family can put their loved one to rest in the privacy and peaceful surroundings of home, but with the expertise and standards of an in-office visit.

Our in home euthanasia  program is the exact same protocol used in an office visit, so you can be assured the experience will be safe, professional, and discreet.

Please take your time to browse our site.  If you have any questions, please call. There is no charge for an initial phone consultation.

When is the Right Time?

Child with Elderly Pet - Pets Remembered - In Home EuthanasiaAs an emergency vet, I am often asked “When is the right time to euthanize my pet? How will I know?” It is important to know that there is no “right” or “acceptable” answer.

With an ailing animal, the most common approach is to determine your pet’s “Quality of Life.” The goal in setting up the Quality of Life Scale is to provide a guideline so that pet owners can maintain a rewarding relationship that nurtures the human-animal bond. The scale alleviates owners’ feelings of guilt and engenders the support of the veterinary team to actively help in the care and decision making.

Some customers prefer an in-home diagnosis and evaluation with a veterinarian, and that’s perfectly okay. To schedule an appointment, please call 1-855-PET-PEACE or click here begin online.

If you would like to conduct the evaluation yourself, this is the scale I use when working with patients.
