At-Home Euthanasia in Auckland

We provide a compassionate and caring at-home euthanasia service for furry family members Auckland wide.

Saying goodbye to a pet is one of the toughest decisions any pet owner has to make. As a veterinarian, it’s something I see often, and my heart goes out to each and every family it affects. While it is a difficult choice, it’s also a compassionate one if the animal has a poor quality of life, terminal illness or is suffering.  That said, no matter the reason, the experience is a deeply emotional one.

So grateful for Kylies compassion, empathy and professionalism during this difficult time. She was so kind and thoughtful. Her care ensured our beloved dog experienced dignified final moments with us, without any fear. That memory gives us immeasurable comfort. Thank you Kylie x

Kylie was everything we hoped for during such a difficult time. The level of care, compassion, respect, and professionalism made us feel at ease and informed about the process at every step. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect way for our beloved boy to go, in the comfort of his home surrounded by loved ones. If it’s an option we would 100% recommend Sunset Vet Care.

Our family recently farewelled our much loved cat of 18+ years. Kylie was highly accommodating, coming across town well outside normal hours. Her sensitivity and professionalism with our cat and kids was really valued in such a tough moment. Thank you.

Our family had to say goodbye to our beloved dog who was battling cancer. We were so grateful that we chose a home service with Kylie. She is compassionate, gentle and respectful, and gave us as much time and space as we needed.

I called Kylie on Sunday due to my Marley boy not doing very well. All I can say is her empathy an sincere kind nature made it all so smooth an having done this at home was perfect peaceful. It can be so hard to say goodbye but having it at home made it much easieras our boy was more relaxed. Amazing service an to be at home while our boy went sleep was so relaxing an much better than being at the vets. I highly recommend Kylie she was so lovely an sweet especially at a time that’s so difficult thank you so much

The process Sunset Vets prepared me for what was about to happen was so warm & reassuring that the choice you have made is the right one! You never get this kind of gentle, emotional support at any typical vet. I will always recommend for my whānau & friends for home farewells, it truely is better to cope with for our mokai (pets) & whānau. Nga mihi to Dr Kylie.

Kylie was so very supportive at an incredibly difficult time. She came at short notice and put our family dog to rest humanely and with dignity. She was very understanding of our situation, and I would highly recommend.

I was dreading this process but the kindness, professionalism, and compassion Kylie showed to me and my dog was beyond words. After almost 14 years of companionship, I could not have asked to say goodbye in a more peaceful and loving way. This would not have been possible without the home visit Kylie was able to make. Thank you

Last week we had to let our dog Casey go after a brief fight with an aggressive cancer. We were initially scared to try in home euthanasia but wanted to let Casey have her final moments somewhere she was completely comfortable. We also hoped to give our other dog Nellie some closure.We chose Sunset Vet Care partly because of the amazing reviews and partly because of a recommendation from our own vet. We were so lucky, Kylie is an exceptional person. She is kind, caring, helpful and respectful. When Kylie arrived at our house a feeling of calm settled over us all. She explained what we needed to know to make sure we wouldn’t be alarmed or upset by anything that was happening. She gave space to ask questions. We were never rushed along, Kylie gave us all the time we needed at each step.Casey was able to have some treats as the sedative started to work and then left the world settled in her favourite spot on the couch with our other dog Nellie’s head on her back. A beautiful end to a beautiful life.

Dr. Kylie Kim was really caring in how she prepared me and my family before our fur baby Louis passed on. She was very patient throughout the whole process and gave us time to process each step and only proceeded on my cue when I was ready. The whole experience was dignified and done with so much love, support and compassion. Being able to allow the procedure to be performed in our home where our darling pet was surrounded by family and in the comfort of his home was comforting. I would highly recommend Dr. Kylie Kim from Sunset Vet Care and their services. Thank you Dr. Kylie Kim for everything you’ve done for us today with our Louis.

Having someone to come into your home and assist you with relieving the pain of your beloved best friend of 14 and a half years and taking them away from you is a huge decision, one that you need the ‘right’ person for. It can make or break the whole situation which is already precious, emotional and devastating enough but to have the ‘wrong’ person come and do it, would make things terrible. From the moment Kylie walked in I could sense her warmth and empathy. She was interested in Mutley’s background, she treated him with respect, she treated my whole family environment with respect and was amazing with my daughter who really wanted to play with her medical ‘toys’. Kylie was kind and gentle to my precious boy and respected everything about the situation. This was one of the hardest decisions I have had to make but Kylie made it that much easier and was definitely the right person for the job. I would highly recommend trusting this heartbreaking and memorable process to Kylie. I am so glad I went with her. Thank you for taking such beautiful care of my beloved boy during his last breaths.
