I agree, being there with them helps - both them & us, no matter where this happens (home or at the vet's office).
I have found a caring, local mobile vet who will come to the house when it is time to let them go, instead of having to take my kitties for their 'last car ride' vet visit. I also ask the vet to give a quick acting tranquilizer first for my more skittish/scardey-cats, which definitely helps them to relax before helping them let go.
