Dr. Andrea Leach provides San Diego residents with compassionate, peaceful at-home euthanasia and end-of-life care for their dogs and cats.


Home Euthanasia

No decision is more difficult for a pet owner than the decision to euthanize a beloved dog or cat. My mission is to provide you and your pet with an experience that is as free from anxiety and pain as possible. Being able to have your last moments together where you and your pet are most comfortable — at home, in the yard, or at the park — is a gift that can make this sad experience more peaceful.

My practice is focused on end-of-life pet care at home. This includes:

  • Euthanasia

  • Hospice and palliative care

  • Quality of life assessments

Please note that I am not accepting new patients for other veterinary services, and I do not offer emergency care. If you are concerned that your pet is suffering from a serious or life-threatening condition, please contact your nearest emergency veterinary facility.

For euthanasias, I travel to most locations in central San Diego as well as north, south and east San Diego County. Locations beyond central San Diego have an additional travel charge.

I provide hospice and palliative care services to most central San Diego neighborhoods, including North Park, Hillcrest, Banker's Hill, Mission Hills, Kensington, Normal Heights, University Heights, South Park, Sherman Heights, Golden Hill and downtown. 

My business hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Thursday and 8:00am-12:00pm on Friday. Home euthanasia appointments may be scheduled on weekends or after my normal hours for an additional fee.
