Dr. Suzen Gregersen, DVM, MBA, MRCVS 

Hospice & Emergency Vet 

Managing Director & Founder  

  

Having started Vets2Home in 2005 with Alex Gravett (vet nurse), Suzen (veterinary surgeon) re-started Peaceful Pet Goodbyes on her own in 2012, dedicating all her time (24/7) to just providing end-of-life and hospice care to companion animals and their families. She has been honoured to receive an overwhelming welcome by the pet owning community and from veterinary colleagues alike ever since. 

 

Suzen says: "Even after a neighbor's rather unsociable Golden Retriever seriously bit my lip, narrowly avoiding my nose, at age 4 leaving me with a permanent facial scar, I was always an unstoppable animal lover - of most members of the animal kingdom. I suspected I wanted to somehow help animals for a living ever since, from age 8, I was often late for school in the mornings as too busy "saving herds of slugs" get safely off the busy pavement after a big rainfall. If I hadn't been fortunate to make it through vet school in Denmark, I suspect I would probably now be a volunteer at some Greek, Thai or Haitian animal rescue center. Or an Orangutan, Gorilla or Elephant sanctuary somewhere distant, warm and exotic."

"However, reality caught up with me and after my very first experience of letting my only childhood dog (a poodle!) be euthanised on a clinical, steel table at the (otherwise lovely) vets, this profound experience and working as a human carer to geriatric two-legged patients with Alzheimer's, severe disabilities and dementia while a vet student, finally lead me to my "calling" of actively helping our companion animals have the respectful end of life they truly deserve."

"To be able to give our animals a peaceful and dignified end at home is an honour and a privilege and has come full circle for me as I feel I am giving back to them what they - and their families - deserve the most: their dignity, freedom and to find peace at home. I truly feel I am sparing animals from suffering every day - and isn't that a true blessing, a heartfelt gift we give to them?

When not on the road, I share my blessed life with my teenage daughter, Amanda, our two lovely rescue dogs, Sundae and Romeo, who travel with me in the car on cooler days and two cute cats, Dolly and Spike (who usually stay at home) but who daily remind me exactly why I do what I do...Đ"

  

 

 

Dr. Jo Feliu, MRCVS 

Assistant Veterinary Surgeon 

  

Jo is our first dedicated End-of-Life Vet. We are so grateful that he has been with us for over two years now, skilfully helping families at a very difficult time. Our clients are simply swayed by Jo's warm, soft-spoken Spanish accent and his naturally gentle ways.  

 

Jo says: "Hello. My name is Joaquin Perez Feliu, but I am known at work as Jo, as the first practice I worked at in England was struggling to pronounce my name and so decided to change it. Thanks Jenny!!

"Very often people ask me (especially in winter or rainy days) why I am living in England and not in Spain where it is always sunny? Well, the answer is, I was tricked by a woman!"

"I met my future wife when she was on holiday in Spain and at that moment I was considering a change of workplace. Beccy convinced me that I could easily find work as a vet in England, and that Brighton had a "microclimate," leading me to believe that when itīs raining in London, itīs still sunny in Brighton."

"Well, although that's not exactly true, eight years on I don't regret my move. In Spain as a vet I was often frustrated because owners were not putting their pets as a first priority, which is not the case in this country."

"This brings me to Vets2Home. I had the opportunity to work with Susan and Alex in 2014, and straight away I realised that their work was what I was missing in the general practice, and fulfilled the reason that I wanted to be a vet .... to help animals from the beginning to the end of their lives."
