About the Business
The idea of Bowwout came to me over a year ago. Some years before I had taken a break from veterinary practice, and during this time a number of friends rang to ask me if I would call to their homes and put down their pet, usually a dog. It was an issue which made owners feel deeply emotional.
When pets had to be put down, people wanted it to be in familiar surroundings, without the stress of car journeys, knowing what lay ahead, and waiting rooms, and the return journey alone or with a body. Where owners could have privacy in their grief. People were so appreciative and thankful that it seemed to me that there might be a demand for such a service in the wider community, and as a result Bowwout came into being.
Because Bowwout is a primary service, we have plenty of time for our clients, and can ensure that the pet is relaxed and free from pain and fear when he/she drifts from this world to the next.
Although Bowwout is primarily intended for dogs, we do include cats and other pets in our service.
