Dr. Veena Alexis

Dr. Veena Alexis, DVM

Dr. Veena Alexis earned her bachelor’s degree in Microbiology from Coloardo State University in 1996. She continued on to earn her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the College of Veterinary Medicine at CSU in 2001. She has practiced in the Phoenix area since 2002.

Through the years, Dr. Veena like many veterinarians, has had numerous requests from families for in home euthanasia. Oftentimes, there would be a scheduling conflict leaving her unable to leave the clinic due to the appointment schedule. In those instances where she was able to visit the home, she witnessed the amazing difference between putting pets to sleep at home as opposed to putting them to sleep in the clinic setting. There is a certain calm that surrounds the families and the pets, knowing that they are not frightened or anxious because they are at home. Although it is a difficult calling, it is also a privilege to be able to end the pain and suffering that pets endure at the end of life.

Dr. Debra Freiberg, DVM

Dr. Debra Freiberg earned her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the Ohio State University. She successfully started and owned practices in Montana and Washington state prior to moving to Arizona in 2007. She has served the greater Phoenix area since 2011.

Every practice that Dr. Debra has owned or been employed by has been either wholly or partly mobile and included in home euthanasia for those clients who requested it. The difference between in clinic and in home euthanasia is profound for the family and their pet. It is a deeply personal time not meant to be experienced in a public setting. The comfort of home surrounded by family creates a peaceful environment. As a veterinarian it is part of the veterinary oath to humanely end suffering but it is a privilege to help owners through this difficult time of saying, “good bye” to their beloved companion.

Dr. Nichola Ray

Dr. Nichola Ray, DVM

Dr. Ray was raised in Chandler, Arizona and is part of a large family. There were always cats and dogs in her life, as well as chickens and ducks.  She has an uncle in Texas that was a veterinarian and helped initiate her interest in veterinary medicine.  She married another Arizona native and has three human boys and two girl dogs –  a three-legged Chihuahua mix that she adopted, and a fat Pomeranian that eats everything she can. 

Dr Ray was a Certified Veterinary Technician prior to continuing her education and career as a veterinarian.

When Is It Time?

When we accept a pet into our lives, we know that one day we will have to decide when the time is right to relieve them from pain or illness. If your pet has been diagnosed with an incurable illness that takes away the quality of life, or if your pet’s day is full of senior moments where they are confused or sad, then it may be time to end their suffering with in home euthanasia. You may see that your pet has more bad days than good days, or you may be seeing the following changes:.


Your Pet has lost interest in food


Your Pet is no longer able to go to the bathroom without accidents or falling down


Your Pet is no longer greeting you when you come home


Your Pet is no longer patrolling the yard or protecting their territory the way they once did


Your Cat has stopped grooming themselves


Your Dog no longer wags it’s tail
