Availability by appointment:

  • Contact us by filling out the contact form Filling out our contact form obtains the fastest response (we respond via text and/or email). Direct phone call and voicemail are more challenging due to the nature of our service (being with a patient, traveling, etc.).  Most questions can be answered by reviewing our website.

  • Appointments are between 10:30 am to 6:30 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. They are targeted to be in a specific window of time (for example we make an 11 am appointment, we may be there between 10:45 to 1:45. This is due to possible emergencies (which take precedence) and previous appointments (unpredicatable travel time, etc). 

  • We understand if you change your mind, need to reschedule, or if your pet's condition changes but please try to give us notice as soon as possible so we can help others in need. Appointments and quick responses are not guaranteed.

  • Please give us any unique directions or landmarks to help us find your residence (color of your home, where is your numerical address located, landmarks).  

  • Let us know if you have any of your pet's prescribed pain medication or oral sedatives that may benefit them before the euthanasia appointment.

  • Even though your pet may not be normally reactive, pain or discomfort may cause them to nip so we may gently place a soft muzzle to help make this difficult time as smooth and safe as possible.

  •  No potentially aggressive dogs (growling, evasive, untouchable) for euthanasia or other dogs in the household with potential aggression must be secured safely from our team.

Dr. Gadwood has worked in the veterinary field since 1989 and graduated from vet school with her D.V.M. (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine) degree in 2004.  She's practiced throughout the Portland Oregon and SW Washington metro within dozens of veterinary hospitals, including her 8 year role as the medical director for an exclusive, fear free, feline hospital.

For 20 years, much of her time has been devoted to helping guide families through the process of making end-of-life decisions for their pets. 

One of Dr. Gadwood's passions is to promote a "fear free" environment for all patients. There is no better place than home to create a safe place, allowing us to all connect, collaborate, and support the sacred human animal bond, especially during your pet's last moments. Our loved ones not only deserve to live a good life, but also deserve a humane death. The term euthanasia is literally translated into "good death."

 

Just a few years ago, she had to euthanize her beloved dog Dezzi in the chaotic setting of an emergency hospital and wished she could have let her go peacefully at their home. These are just some of the of the reasons she chooses to promote and perform the final gift of an in home euthanasia. 

In her free time, she enjoys vegetable and flower gardening, hobby farming (goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, 4 cats, and 4 dogs), bird watching, and cooking.
