Dr. Daniela Lutri

(8) reviews


Dr. Lutri, originally from Argentina, South America, has always been passionate about animals. As a child, she remembers drawing a picture of herself with a little dog on a table, wanting to help it. After completing six years of vet school abroad, she pursued her dream of becoming licensed in the United States. Since graduating, Dr. Lutri has been practicing as a general practitioner and relief doctor, providing assistance to hospitals around the LA/OC area. In 2020, Dr. Lutri completed her DVM education from ECFVG, after earning her degree from the National University of Rio Cuarto in 2004. A few years ago, she faced the difficult decision of euthanizing her own beloved pet after it was hit by a car. This experience gave her a deeper understanding of the sorrow and pain that pet parents go through when making the same decision for their furry friends. Dr. Lutri's empathy towards animals and their families led her to begin offering in-home euthanasia services, where she can provide support to pet owners during their pets' last moments. Unlike the appointments at busy hospitals and clinics where time is limited, Dr. Lutri's in-home services allow her to give support throughout the process. When not practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. Lutri enjoys spending time with her family, especially her husband, and daughter. They love to go on weekend getaways together. After losing her beloved pet almost two years ago, Dr. Lutri and her family are preparing to adopt a new furry friend. Lastly, Dr. Lutri is also fluent in Spanish, allowing her to communicate effectively with Spanish-speaking pet owners and provide them with quality care for their beloved pets.

Why Choose In-Home Pet Euthanasia

In-home euthanasia in Irvine and surrounding cities is a viable option for pet parents who wish to say goodbye to their furry companion in the comfort of their own home. This option provides a more relaxed and familiar environment, which can be less stressful for both the pet and the family. It allows for a more personal and intimate goodbye, where the family can be present and have the opportunity to say their goodbyes in a peaceful and dignified way.

This choice can provide a sense of closure and comfort to the family, knowing that their pet was able to pass away surrounded by love and familiar surroundings.

Dr. Daniela Lutri was so kind and compassionate. She spent two hours with us consoling and comforting our adorable precious cat. She was so gentle. We have done this with other pets but Dr. Lutri was the best. She eased Ruby to kitty heaven and kept us calm throughout the procedure. She even followed up with us a few times to make sure we were okay. And sent us a lovely sympathy card.

I had to make the heartbreaking decision to put our 10 year old Great Dane to sleep and by chance, I found this site and Dr Daniela Lutri. I could not have been paired with a better vet. She was exactly the person my heart needed for the process of in home euthanasia. She was kind and compassionate and so loving to my beloved dog. She was patient with us and explained everything in such a perfect way. My dog passed so peacefully. I was so truly blessed to have found Dr Lutri. She was a beautiful light on our very dark day.

Dr. Lutri was better than I expected! She was so gentle and caring for my 150+ lb baby. I will never leave any pet any other way. And I cannot thank her enough for the peace she provided me.

Daniela is the most compassionate human being who happens to be a veterinarian. Animals trust her, are drawn to her because being a veterinarian is her passion, it's not just her job. All of these qualities are essential when navigating and communicating with humans the end of life decision for a beloved pet. Daniela cares equally for the pet and the pet parent. Daniela explained every step of the process to me before we began the process of saying goodbye to my beloved Romeo. Romeo passed peacefully.
