I’m Dr. Sue Chaney
I have 30 years of experience in small animal care, with a Masters degree in Companion Animal Medical and Surgery. I have recently completed an international certificate in palliative and end-of life care after 18 months of study to support my services in the specialised field of in-home euthanasia. Additionally, I also provide supportive veterinary care to cats and dogs in quarantine (and their very anxious owners). I attend regular conferences and seminars to stay informed, and apply this knowledge with extensive experience to treat my patients and communicate with their very worried human companions.
In addition to my two-legged family, I share my home with two Shih Tzus named Wanda and Bean, as well as some very special rescue cats, Indy and Polar. In my spare time, I enjoy a good cup of coffee, golf with friends, multi-day hiking in Tasmania and New Zealand, and playing bass guitar.
DR. SUE MOBILE VET
I have been caring for cats, dogs and rabbits for nearly 30 years through all stages of life. At the end of their life, I believe that euthanasia in their home environment is the most compassionate and caring thing we can do for them. I have completed an 18 month international course in end-of-life care and aim to provide a pain-free, calm and safe loving environment where you feel comfortable to say goodbye. Your companion can pass away in a favourite location in a sunny spot under a window, or under a tree in the garden, moving swiftly through the passing of life, or taking time to celebrate the wonderful (or wicked) things about your loved one that made them so special.
It is a privilege to be involved in end-of-life care. Prior to your appointment we can discuss the process, the arrangements during and after the procedure, and answer any questions or requests you may have with as little or as much information as you need. It is important to consider any feelings or philosophies you have to ensure your wishes are respected at the end of life.
Aftercare can also be arranged. This can be discussed beforehand (the link to the Edenhills website can be found in the aftercare section below), or any time in the days afterwards. Please use the contact me if you have any questions, or use the resources below.

Not sure if this is the right time?
Thinking about the aftercare of your loved one?
I have been working with a cremation company called Edenhills for over 10 years. They provide individual cremation and you can choose to either have the ashes returned or have them scattered at the cremation facility. After your companion has passed away, you will be given the option to spend some time alone to say goodbye before I carry your pet away. Either I or Edenhills staff will return the ashes in about 10 days, depending on whether a regular vessel has been selected or something more elaborate. Costs of cremation vary depending on the type of vessel and pet weight and I can discuss this with you beforehand or at the time. There is no rush. I can leave you some information you can read through later, or you can access the Edenhills information by clicking on the button below.
