Are you interested in a flexible, family-friendly and immensely rewarding job? Would you like to use your love of animals and your compassion assisting pets and their owners at home when they are most in need of your professional help? 


Description: Saying-goodbye-to-Lucky400'What makes my job worthwhile is seeing the huge difference it makes to have enough time to help pets and their families in their own home. As a hospice vet, I aim to help the family come to terms with the loss of their beloved pet by giving them the necessary attention, skills and healing tools to make their final goodbye a pleasant and peaceful experience, far removed from the challenging, unfulfilling "clinical" procedure it is in a busy practice. My experiences have convinced me I will never return to normal practice.' 

Susan Gregersen, The Hospice Vet  


It is our practice aim to offer and grow our specialised palliative, end-of-life home vet services. We want to help as many pet owners as possible when they face the loss of a much-loved, four-legged family member. At busy times, we also want to assist vet practices. We are already doing this but it is our dearest wish to take our unique services further afield than just the Sussex and Surrey/Kent borders. We would therefore like to hear from compassionate and forward-thinking vets and vet nurses who would initially like to locum for us at peak times and cover our main vet's occasional absence. All work is on-call only, with your own home being your base. On-the-job training to comply with our protocols is provided before sole charge is expected. 


Our service's fundamental ethos is based on a deep respect for the human/animal bond and for helping pets and owners - in every way possible - when faced with this most difficult time of being a pet family. We aim to exceed our client's expectations in all possible areas by looking after their special pet as if he or she were our own, while taking empathetic care of their human families at the same time. 


Description: susan and friendsWe would love to hear from you if you are interested in a totally different, satisfying, unhurried and flexible way of delivering veterinary care to pets and their owners. In return, you will be ready to fulfil a hugely rewarding role helping families say goodbye to their pet, as his or her life ends peacefully at home. 


Our paid, on-the-job training will familiarise you with our tried and tested peaceful euthanasia protocols and give the best, most consistent client experience every time.  


We truly believe in the gift of in-home euthanasia. The way a life ends should leave behind a peaceful, treasured memory and not be remembered as a quick, clinical procedure. 


Please drop Susan Gregersen, MRCVS, an email on, attaching your CV and a few words about your availability, location and interests. We will get back in touch to discuss how you can become a valued member of our growing team. 

We look forward to hearing from you soon!  


About Susan Gregersen, DVM, MBA, MRCVS, Hospice & Emergency Vet and Managing Director of Vets2Home  

Susan and her practice partner, RVN Alex Gravett, spent seven years running her general mobile vet service in Sussex, dealing with thousands of delicate home euthanasias alongside prophylactic, diagnostic and curative therapies. In 2012 Susan chose to devote her mobile practice to the hugely rewarding specialism of at-home palliative medicine, end-of-life hospice care and peaceful euthanasia. Early in 2013 she joined the IAAHPC (International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care) to further her knowledge and skills in this new field. Animal hospice care is still in its infancy here in the UK and has very little representation and acknowledgement as an established vet-specialty outside the United States. It is Susan's personal and professional mission to help change this and make animal hospice and palliative medicine widely available to pets and pet parents in and around Sussex, and then in the rest of the UK. 


Susan loves to talk about her unique service and is pleased to share her expertise and protocols to other vets wanting to help clients say goodbye in the comfort of their own home or improve the end-of-life services at their practice. 


Based on the hugely popular new service she offers, and having recently completed her MBA in business management, Susan aspires to grow and expand her home hospice and palliative end-of-life and euthanasia services so they are accessible to a wider geographic area. 


Over time, she intends to make this unique service available to as many pets and their owners as possible, at all hours, whenever they are in need. This is meant as a compassionate supplement to ordinary, wellness-based pet health services offered by normal vet practices. The proven healing effects of a personal in-home hospice care support team help bridge the gap between a terminal diagnosis or the ailments of old age and the right time for peaceful euthanasia.
