Dr.Dionne was able to make a same day visit to our apartment to help lay our dog to rest. She was so easy to talk to and led us through the process with ease and compassion. It takes a truly gifted person to do this job and she’s one of them! She also offers the private cremation service which we opted for . I recommend her to anyone needing an at home service.

Dr Dionne Harrell helped us say goodbye to two of our beloved cats this year. She was so wonderful and caring, it was a real comfort to have her there to help us say our farewells. She’s simply a wonderful person. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Dionne is the best! She makes a hard situation the best it can possibly be. She is calm and caring. She came to our home when we had to put our 14 year old dog down. She gave us all the time we needed and talked us through it all. Would highly recommend, Love her!

Dr. Dionne has been taking care of our cats and dogs for many years. We loved that she would come right to the house. It reduced the stress on us almost as much as it did on the cats & dogs. She was even there for us when we had to put one of our dogs to rest. She really is wonderful.

Doctor Dionne with Cat in Clinic

A little about us…

Cherished Companion Mobile Veterinary Service was established in 2005 by Dr. Dionne A Harrell. She graduated from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1998 with a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Harrell worked for several years at a veterinary clinic before starting up her mobile vet service which helped her to become the perceptive and astute Veterinarian she is today.

Dr. Harrell provided wellness exams, vaccines, lab work, minor surgeries as well as diagnostic exams (ill pet), and end of life care (Euthanasia) from 2005-June 2022 in Wisconsin. With over 17 years of house call general practice experience Dr. Harrell could see first-hand the need for personal and private care for both the owner and their cherished companion in their final moments. With Dr. Harrell’s relocation to Florida, she decided to help fill the need for so many pet parents and their fur babies to be at home and decided to transition from general practice to fully focus on end-of-life care.

Our Euthanasia Services

Why Pet Euthanasia At Home?

  • The vet’s office is associated with unfamiliar smells, thermometers, and white coats. Even though pets do not understand or anticipate death, they do anticipate discomfort.
  • At home, your pet is at his or her most comfortable. They don’t need to leave their favorite spot in the sun or move when they are in pain.
  • You can be there by yourself or with the whole extended family. You can take your time, plus you don’t need to drive home afterward.
  • Death is a major life transition. Euthanasia at home minimizes the medical aspect of this transition and allows you to focus on your pet.
  • You can have the option to have our veterinarian come into your home. Cherished Companion is a unique service in that you also have the option to bring your pet into our mobile clinic van if you prefer the procedure is not done directly in your home, but still at your front door.

Debra’s Experience

I’ve been a client of Cherished Companion for many years. Dr. Dionne helped welcome home my 3mo.old boy named Tanner. With Her medical advice and care Tanner was a happy and healthy dog. As the years went by Tanner developed arthritis though out his body. The last 2yrs. of his life he had two mini strokes. At the age of 14 and a half. I made the decision to put him to rest. The night before Dr. Dionne was to arrive. Tanner had another mini stroke; thankfully we didn’t have to try and get him to a clinic. Dr. Dionne’s Cherished Companion mobile allowed my husband and I to say goodbye and Tanner could feel safe being at home as he started his journey. I will see you again Tanner at the bridge.
