Sherrill veterinarian offers in-home euthanasia service for pets


SHERRILL — Sherrill native and veterinarian Dr. Abby Regner is now offering a unique service to pet owners during one of the most difficult times of pet ownership.

Parting Paws offers in-home, personalized euthanasia service for families saying goodbye to their beloved pets. Regner will come to the home, as prearranged, and help families say goodbye in the place and privacy of their choosing. Cremation services are also available if desired.

“I am proud to be the founder of Parting Paws,” Regner said. “I realized the importance of this service when it was time to say goodbye to my dog Chief. As a veterinarian, I made the decision to not bring him to the hospital and perform the euthanasia at home. There was no rush, no noise, no pressure, no hospital. It was in this moment that I knew every pet-parent deserves this parting. My promise is to allow everyone a chance to be in their own space, with their own privacy, to part with their beloved pet in their own way. I will do my very best to make this process as stress-free as possible.”

In the face of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, Regner is still offering her service but will be taking each case into consideration based on the severity of the animal’s condition.

Regner added that she will not be entering the home or responding to homes where anyone is sick with any symptoms, quarantine, or has been exposed to anyone with the coronavirus/COVID 19.

“Emergency veterinary services are an essential business so I will do my very best but am taking many measures to protect myself,” Regner said.
