About the Quietus Vet – Caring Pet Euthanasia Service

The Quietus Vet is Dr Paul Stevens MRCVS – Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

I have been surrounded by animals all my life. When I was 3 year old  I would hang onto our Labrador, and the two of us would totter together to my best-friend’s house – a quarter of a mile away!
In Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, I have been a practising vet for over 30 years treating anything from cattle and horses to Staffies and Yorkies.

I have continued to be a clinical vet, treating companion animals (pets) both surgically and medically for the wide range of problems and issues we see in general practice.
I am now focused entirely on the specialist area of Home Euthanasia. Mainly because I want the absolute best for our pets.

I do not perform any other veterinary work other than home euthanasia.
Like all responsible and thorough vets, I regularly attend up to the minute CPD (Continuing Professional Development) – where I research and catch up on recent developments. My qualifications are   BVSc  BA(Hons)  MRCVS

Quietus Vet – RCVS Practice Registration number is 7169354.

My personal RCVS number is 1911293

Why would a vet want to do this?

Many of you may have realised, veterinary medicine and surgery has progressed leaps and bounds over the last 10 years or so. The “sky is the limit” when it comes to treatment possibilities. This is how it should be.
While advanced medicine is how we improve the lives of our pets, there is always the risk of forgetting about the humanity of sharing a life with a pet.
Most vets these days find recommending death very difficult. Vets were not trained to do this work. They would prefer not to do it.

I am taking a different view and want to focus on my patients’ personal needs and their quality of life. And I help in my small way by making the end as perfect as possible too.
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a pet who has been in pain and struggling now at rest – pain free.
This is a specialist area of work.
