Molly was loyal, lovable, and playful. She knew when it was appropriate to assume the role of a guard dog, and at the same time she was the most adorable and affectionate canine there ever was. Molly was a perfect companion to our family. She can never be replaced, and we will live on with the most beautiful memories of her and our times on earth together.
Dr. Forslund, I believe you perform a wonderful service for families that love and value the relationships they have developed over the years with their pets. More importantly, you come across to me as someone who sincerely cares about the families and pets you service while performing your duties as a doctor.
Thank you for all you do to make these trying times a bit easier to manage.

Dear Dr. Forslund,
Thank you so much for everything you did yesterday. It's never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet and companion, but I appreciate how dignified the process was and your professionalism. I can tell you care very deeply about what you do. I am so comforted knowing that Whiskers transitioned in a safe, loving, dignified environment.
Dear Dr. Forslund,
Thank you again for the care and compassion you extended towards Juno and me. I did not know I needed a companion to walk my tumultuous journey, but God sent me Juno. I rescued her from a shelter but I have always believed that she was the one who rescued me. I can find peace, knowing she had a fabulous dog life and we gave each other everything we had. Thank you again for your kindness.
Dante, the little kitty that could. I adopted him at six weeks old. He and all his extra toes lead an amazingly long seventeen-year life. My "cat of little brains" was the most friendly, loving, sweet, dumb-as-a-box-of-rocks purr monster. My dim bulb has been the brightest light in my life. Thank you for providing a compassionate, loving, low-stress, peaceful service to both the animals in your care and to the people who truly care for their fur babies as much as they would their own child. You are blessed with an amazing heart and I am so grateful to have had you come and care for Dante and me.
With light, love, peace, joy and gratitude,

The kindest, most unselfish thing you can do is to avoid the dreaded and stressful vets office and allow your pet to have the comfort of home and family in their last moments. The patience, kindness and compassion that Dr Forslund offers is such a comfort. From the first difficult phone call to the follow up call the next day, everything is handled with a gentle voice and gentle hands. It is always difficult to say goodbye, but I will not regret having my sweet, devoted dogs spend their last moments in my arms and at home.
Ailsa was such a sweet and loving companion and has left an empty space in my heart that can never be filled. Thank you for being so kind and understanding, and for using your special skills to help Ailsa leave this world peacefully and with dignity. I will be forever grateful.
I can't thank you enough for the caring and humane way you treated Angus on Sunday - having to say goodbye to my best friend on earth was so difficult and painful for me, but having it happen in his own home rather than in the impersonal and clinical surroundings of a vet's office made it so much more bearable...
Our bond was sealed those first few days of his life, and Taki never left my side; following me everywhere I went and poking me in the back with his paw (and crying) if he thought I was ignoring him. From the moment I talked to Dr. Forslund, I found her to be a very caring and compassionate person, and she didn’t rush me into making any immediate decisions about Taki. She just told me that she would be there for me when I needed her. It was so nice to know that I could call her when I thought Taki was ready to leave this earth.
Pugsley had such a huge, brave heart, he needed someone who could help him go with dignity, respecting him along the way. When Dr Forslund bent down to talk to Pugsly, that was the first time he lifted his head. It was so he could lick her face. It was obvious that he was so comforted by her gentle soul that he knew why she was there, and was thanking her for helping him. Dr. Forslund made the whole process gentle and calm. Pugsly passed with not even a flinch, and I knew he was pain free.
We did not euthanize Bogart. He died of natural causes in our house and Home Pet Euthanasia helped us with his aftercare/cremation. Todd answered our call late at night with his calm and caring voice. He then came out after midnight, was very empathetic and at the same time knew what to do. The way he so carefully put our Bogart on a stretcher, tucked him in with its fabric and carried him from our home – well, Todd showed so much respect and compassion while demonstrating his experience and knowledge. Since we believe all life is receptive to love, we can’t help but think that Bogart knew Todd’s love along with ours.
