I did this, and was greatly comforted by it. My vet and I are friends, but that's not the sole reason that she came to do the euthanization; it's a normal part of her practice (she makes house calls, too). More vets are making themselves available for this, but not all of them. Your vet shouldn't object to your asking for a referral, however, if he or she isn't equipped to do a home visit like this.

My vet was required to bring a technician along with her, I guess as part of the board rules, so we did have to plan around availability of her technician. Ask your vet. I encourage anyone to pursue this option if available.

And, my vet stayed while we buried Eddie-cat, which made the day all the more special.

Good luck,
