Since graduating from Western University of Health Sciences in 2012, Dr Marchi completed an internship at VCA AVCC in Lawndale, and worked mostly overnight emergency shifts. After seeing countless cases of euthanasia in a very high stress situation, he saw the need to provide compassionate at home euthanasia service for anyone who requested it. In 2015, Dr Marchi, Pet Euthanasia at Home was created, and we have helped many people since then. More recently, he and Amber have started their own aftercare service using aquamation so your pet would never leave their care.
Amber is a registered veterinary technician with 20 years of experience in the field, mostly in ER and always with a passion for exotics - birds, reptiles, rodents, etc.
We have both been pet lovers our entire lives with a menagerie of our own, and know from our own experience how hard it is to have to say goodbye to a loved one. We are passionate about what we do, and are honored to help you and yours when it is time.
Dr. Mike Handley graduated with a DVM from The Ohio State University in 2012. After graduation, he moved out to California for an internship at VCA AVCC, where he met Dr. Marchi and Dr. Nguyen. After the internship, Dr. Handley went into private practice and became a general practitioner. As a general practitioner, Dr. Handley sees firsthand how deep the human-pet bond is and what a difficult decision it is to euthanize your pet. Dr. Handley was happy to join the team in 2020 to allow pets to cross the rainbow bridge in the comfort of their own homes.
Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Handley and his wife, Julie, enjoy traveling the world, volunteering in their community, and spending time with their two fur babies. They have a 16 year old tuxedo cat named Paco, and a 14 year old black springer spaniel mix named Sadie.
