Cherry Tree Gentle Farewells

Our pets have become as much a part of our family as our human family members. With this in mind, and the fact that many modern veterinary surgery’s home visits have become much less available, it leaves the only option for euthanasia to be at the surgery in clinical surroundings.

This is more stressful for not only our pets, but also for their owners. Cherry Tree Gentle Farewells can provide a gentle, peaceful euthanasia service in your own home, or in our new bespoke homely clinic at Cherry Tree. This is not rushed and allows you the time that you need to say goodbye to your loved pet family member.

Cherry Tree Gentle Farewells has been founded by David Funnell, who over the past 20 years has helped owners and family’s through the loss of pet family members with the well-respected Cherry Tree Pet Crematorium.

We have teamed up with a local vet, Dr Nicola Carrier (previously from Weald Home Vets) who has a vast amount of home euthanasia experience and well known for being kind, caring and compassionate.

David has known Nicola professionally for many years, not only from looking after her own dog, but also through client’s that had used Weald Home Vets service. David witnessed first-hand the compassionate service when he called upon Nicola to help his family sadly say goodbye to a beloved family pet in the comfort of their own home. He saw just how peaceful the euthanasia was at home, and how so much of the stress was taken away from having this performed on a home visit.

With this new calibration of two well respected service providers, we are confident that you will find our home visit service personal, comforting and above all, a stress-free service in your familiar home surroundings.

Importantly we are here to help you through your loss.
