Helping you take care of your furry friends
Helping you take care of your furry friends
Welcome to A Friend's Farewell, where compassionate care meets local roots. I'm Dr. Edwina LeMay, a proud native of Jeffersonville, Indiana, and I am deeply committed to the well-being of our beloved pets right here in our community and the surrounding areas. Our pets are cherished members of our family. When their bodies begin to fail due to age or illness, they look to us, their lifelong caregivers, to help end their pain and suffering. The word euthanasia, derived from the Greek meaning 'good or peaceful death,' can be one of the kindest acts we are able to provide for our suffering pets.
I understand the importance of home, and I am here to offer heartfelt in-home euthanasia services that allow your cherished companions to find peace and solace where they're most comfortable—right at home. Being at home where they are surrounded by the familiar and those who love them most is always the best for your pet and where they really want to be. I know how hard it is to make the call, but I will be there with a compassionate heart to help you and your pet through this difficult time.
I started caring for pets as a Technician in 1987, graduated from North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999 and have served as a Veterinarian ever since. I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Kentucky Veterinary Medical Association and Greater Louisville VMA.
Dear Dr. LeMay,
My son and I cannot express in words your presence, compassion, and attention to Buddy's needs as we journeyed with him in his final moments. Our family couldn't have been in better hands!
Your dedication to grieving families is a gift that provides comfort, understanding and the ability for us to know that our pet felt peace.
Receiving Buddy's paw print was extremely precious and will remind us of manyhappy memories for years to come and the grief book has helped my son tremendously!
Thank you so much
We cannot thank you enough for helping us with Millie and her final journey. Millie was our accident puppy that my uncle gave us after we had lost another fur-baby. We had already gotten another dog, but of course we saw her with her ears tips that curled back, and we feel in love. She was my best friend, she always gave us a surprise party when we came in the door, with a smile on her face, jumping and running- made me smile everytime.
The calming compassion you had with her and us, made this a bit more bearable. We cannot thank you enough for that, and for doing this to help other pets and their humans through this difficult time. I am telling everyone that will listen about you and your service.
I will keep you and your family in my prayers for blessings to come over you.
Thank You and God Bless!
We wanted to thank you again for your passionate desire to do what you do…
Jack was with us almost 13 years and the past few have been under your care. Everyone hates losing a family member, and it is certainly difficult to imagine not coming home to his awesome greetings. However, the way you helped us during this entire process set our minds at ease that we were doing everything we could to make sure he was receiving the quality of care and concern that he deserved. From our frantic text messages when something would terrify us, to the final call we made to you today, we have always felt like you shared our ultimate concern for Jack and his wellbeing. We will continue to grieve our loss for many years to come but know in our hearts that Jack was rewarded for being such a wonderful, loving, boy by the dignity and respect you helped us show him when the time came.
Thanks for all you do…
