As pet owners, we do everything we can to make sure that our four-legged family members lead happy and healthy lives, and this doesn’t stop when it comes to their end-of-life care. We believe that deciding when the time has come to say goodbye is one of the most important and selfless decisions we make for our beloved pets.

We created Fond Farewell Vets to provide the most dignified, calm and peaceful way to spend those final moments together. This allows you to stay in the comfort of your own home, eliminating the need for what can be a stressful and difficult journey for everyone. At home euthanasia means that your much-loved companion can spend this precious time in their favourite place with their favourite people.

Our coverage area is a 25 mile radius of our base in Frampton, just north of Dorchester – please see map below.  However, if you fall just outside this area please do get in touch as we may still be able to help.

About Us

Fond Farewell Vets is family owned and run, based just north of Dorchester in Dorset.

James qualified from The Royal Veterinary College in 2008 and has been working locally in Dorset for the past 10 years. During this time he has witnessed the importance of saying goodbye in the most peaceful way, and this is what inspired the creation of Fond Farewell Vets.

Suzy manages all non-medical aspects of Fond Farewell, with a background working in the charity sector and an immense love of animals.

Together, we will do everything we can to provide you with all the reassurance and compassion that you need at this difficult time.

The After Care we can Offer

Whether you decide on a home burial or cremation, we are here to help. We can organise cremation on your behalf, or you can contact a crematorium directly.  We work with two local independent crematoria who share our ethos of offering the most dignified and caring service for our beloved pets. Alternatively, we can take your pet to your Veterinary Practice to be cremated through them.  Whatever you feel most comfortable with.

If you wish, we can provide you with various memorialisation options such as paw prints, hair clippings, jewellery, and other keepsakes.
