Dr. Dawnetta is a godsend. So compassionate, understanding, kind , and a fabulous listener. She has been there for me twice now in helping my pets go to rainbow bridge. My 14 yo girl got sick and she absolutely hated the vet’s office. She would freak out every time we pulled into the parking lot. There was no way I wanted her last moments to be spent somewhere where she was so anxious and uncomfortable. Pets at Rest was the absolute best choice for her to transition. Such a beautiful, private space, filled with nothing but people who have love and compassion. My baby girl got to rest on a comfy blanket & pillow. I got to take my time with her and say goodbye to her on my terms. Pets at Rest, Dr. Dawnetta, and all the staff are amazing and I’m forever grateful for helping me let my girl go in peace and filled with love.
Dr Dawnetta is simply the best. She has helped us with multiple pets and is always professional and so kind, and compassionate at the same time. Her new location is easy to find and so comforting for pets and their owners. It’s nothing like visiting a veterinary office; it’s truly a home.
On March 21 we were unexpectedly faced with saying goodbye to our beloved 13-year-old Samoyed. We were in shock but knew that we wanted time with him before we had to let him go. I knew that Pets at Rest had recently opened their doors and I had already shared a loss with Dr Dawnetta before. I knew that I needed to take my beloved boy to her. We were able to connect and drove to the location. Upon arrival we were received with love and compassion. Jersey and we were led to a beautiful and peaceful comforting room where we could share our last moments with him! He was inquisitive and safe. Dr. Dawnetta spent loving time with us and talked to us about his condition, gave us encouraging words, all the while giving love to our boy (he insisted as that was his claim to fame, even though he didn’t feel great!) She was so calming and helpful with our emotions and Jersey’s care. We said goodbye in the most peaceful and loving way! We had a beautiful pawprint made, we had his sister come in to say her goodbyes all on her own terms. This was probably the most comforting goodbye we have ever experienced. The hospice home is so comforting and truly prepared for any loss situation.
We are forever thankful for Dr. Dawnetta. When our first dog became geriatric, we weren’t sure what to do or who to turn to. We found Dr. Dawnetta and she was everything we needed and more. She was kind, caring and open to what our thoughts and concerns were. She truly listened to what we had to say, gave us great advice and provided the help we needed to have some additional time with our beloved Samson. Shortly after losing Samson, we called Dr. Dawnetta about our Hurricane Katrina rescue who had chronic pain issues, ortho issues and year-round allergies. Once again, we were given excellent advice and Sonny received the best care possible. Following the passing of Sonny, we called upon Dr. Dawnetta again to help with our two senior greyhounds. We were met with the same compassion, thoughtfulness and wonderful veterinary care that we had received in the past.
Every time we’ve needed Dr. Dawnetta she was there. We’re so grateful that she was able to provide pain management and help each of our senior dogs pass peacefully in the comfort of their own home. I truly believe that our pets had a much better quality of life once she began providing care to them.
I’ve known Dr. Dawnetta for several years now and have interacted with her over the internet and in person several times. She possesses a rare skill set that makes her uniquely qualified in her work. She consistently provides detail-oriented, skilled, loving care to pets and also possesses the empathy, people skills, and general “reading the room” abilities to work smoothly with pets’ guardians during emotionally tough times. Dawnetta has a generous heart and an unsinkable spirit, and is extremely personable and friendly. I admire this especially in light of the huge workload she is often under.
