Then we heard about True Companions VetVan. Allowing him to go peacefully where he was most comfortable was invaluable. We can't thank Dr. Longtin enough for everything. She brought the sense of calmness that was needed in such a stressful and traumatic time. We will absolutely recommend True Companions to our friends and family.

I cannot even begin to tell you how deeply grateful I am for your incredibly kind treatment of Sam (and honestly, of me). In addition to the horror I shared with you at the possible treatment of his body after he passed, I had been haunted by the image that at his end, I would find myself holding Sam, trying to keep him calm while he was in acute distress and/or pain, looking at me in a way that pleaded for his life. It had been tearing me apart for weeks. Because you were so gentle, kind and thoroughly professional, the exact opposite came to pass. That he was calm and not stressed, scared or caused any additional pain made losing him infinitely easier to bear. While the night you were here was incredibly difficult, I woke up the next day knowing that until the very end, I was able to find the best possible care for Sam, and that gives me great peace of mind.
Also, your wonderful recommendation of Pets Remembered worked out better than I could have ever imagined and took away my concerns about how Sam would be treated after his passing. The parcel returned to me included his paw print and impression in clay, a little lock of his fur and his ashes in a lovely small teak box. It was all very sweet and beautifully done.
I am in the process of putting the word out - in person and online - about your exceptional services. You made an awesome impression. I send you my very best. You are wonderful and helped me when I needed it most.
The animals don't get stressed by going into the clinic, they are much more relaxed and receptive to having those not-so-fun needles for vaccines and heartworm poked into them. She comes with treats too!
There are so many benefits to having a house call visit. To name a few, she can see the "real dog/cat" -- you know how we always say "they never do that at home!" Another benefit is that it's convenient for our lives' busy schedules, and she works around them.
I have to say having my beloved Harvey cross the Rainbow Bridge at home was hard, but having it in the comfort of his home and not having his last car ride be the one were we said goodbye was the absolute best. Dr Raeyna provided full-circle services, meaning not only the euthanasia, but she also took him for individual cremation and returned his ashes home.
Also, the great lady provides care for several pet rescues in the twin cities area, so she is always running from one end of the cities to another providing exceptional care to foster animals. Her heart is so big!
I am so happy to share with people about Dr. Raeyna and her care, I tell everybody!
She has my furry family's vote of best veterinarian of the century!
Tovah, Mike, Eggs, and many many foster puppies!

Dr. Raeyna has been to our house twice now and it just makes life easier for all involved. She is very knowledgeable and up to date with recent research and I trust her professional opinions and guidance completely. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone interested in using True Companions!

Dr. Raeyna helped my family find and adopt Tuffy from the Humane Society almost 14 years ago and has helped him maintain good health throughout his long and full life. It only seemed natural that she would be the one to help ease his passing when his time came.
Tuffy passed away in the comfort of his own home and was surrounded by those who loved him dearly. True Companions made this possible. I would strongly recommend Dr. Longtin's services to any pet-owner - Tuffy's quality of life is largely due to her ongoing passionate involvement.
