Dr. Emily Reiner & Forever Loved Vet

Dr. Emily Reiner graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 2008. Since that time, she has been working in small animal practice in the Halifax area, where she has witnessed firsthand the joy and heartbreak that come with sharing your life with a pet. As a veterinarian, Dr. Reiner found herself sharing in all those ups and downs with her clients, and she soon realized that the moments surrounding the death of a beloved pet are often some of the most impactful of a person’s life.

Ensuring that the passing of every pet is as peaceful and comfortable as possible has become a passion for her, and she understands why more and more people are asking for in-home euthanasia. Saying goodbye without the stress of a vet visit, and without the pain and fear that some pets feel in transit, makes the end-of-life experience more relaxed and peaceful for everyone. Dr. Reiner feels that ending an animal’s life as humanely as possible is a serious responsibility, but being entrusted with that responsibility by a pet’s family is a great honour.

Forever Loved Veterinary Hospice and In-Home Euthanasia was born of Dr. Reiner’s compassion for families faced with the heavy decisions that come with end-of-life care. She hopes to make the whole process easier for families across the Halifax region.
