“Caring Pathways could not have been more compassionate or professional when we had to say a tearful goodbye to our senior dog. Her failing health became a crisis over a holiday, and not only did the staff field my call and help me think through our options, but they also quickly scheduled someone to come out to our home the next morning to help us say goodbye. I hadn’t intended to have my children (who were six and three) home when we said goodbye, but my feelings changed in the moment, and the vet let me really lean on her to help me make that difficult decision. She walked our kids through the experience with utter gentleness, grace, and compassion and she gave our sweet Callie the most gentle goodbye I could imagine. She gave our home a sense of peace, helped end our dog’s suffering gently, and held space for all of us with compassion, patience, and love when we were deeply grief-stricken. I can’t recommend this organization and its staff highly enough; our veterinarian transformed our experience into a chaotic crisis into a sacred and protected place to say goodbye. Thank you so much, Caring Pathways!“
“We were referred to you by two different sets of friends who have used your services, so we trusted their recommendation. From the start to the dreadful finish, we were so impressed with your professionalism and kindness. To set the appointment with you all was seamless. Then, when we met Dr. Stacee Kim, she was definitely an angel in a vet uniform. She was kind, gentle, warm, and felt like she was part of our family as she was ushering our Miles out of this life. She gently explained each process to us while also confirming that, as she rubbed his belly, that he had a huge mass there, which assured us that we were doing the right thing. For those final moments, Dr. Kim comforted us while showing so much love to our Miles. His transition was indeed dignified as you all provided a beautiful purple velvet blanket to cover him as my husband and our friend carried him to your van. We knew that Dr. Kim was going to take care of our boy, as she told us so in her final embrace with us. She was so wonderful and we are eternally thankful that it was Dr. Kim, an authentically genuine and empathetic soul, who was there to help us through this difficult process. We simply cannot thank you enough for your touching services for our beloved Miles.”
“We said good-bye to Rufus, our miniature schnauzer, on July 12 with the caring and professional help of Dr. Kelly. I can’t thank her enough for explaining very throughly what would happen throughout the process and for her very caring manner towards both Rufus and my husband and me.
We are so grateful to have been able to keep Rufus at home on his favorite bed where he was as comfortable as he could have been for his gentle and peaceful passing. At no point did we feel rushed, and we appreciate that very much. We are so grateful for the services of Caring Pathways and Dr. Kelly.”
“I wanted to find a way to thank Dr. Megan for offering the most compassionate and kind care I could have imagined during our time of need. The entire Caring Pathways team was intentional and informative from start to finish but Dr. Megan was truly incredible. She allowed us to take our time, explained everything with the level of detail (or not) that we needed, and just held the space for us to support sweet Loki in his passing. I am so grateful for her presence. She always knew when to say the right thing and made sure our baby transitioned in the most comfortable, loving way possible. I feel indebted to her for this gift. Thank you thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.”
“My entire experience with Caring Pathways has been incredible. From the gal who answered the phone and helped get us an appointment as soon as possible and explained everything in detail with tremendous patience and compassion to Dr. Emilea, who treated our sweet girl with so much compassion, tenderness, and love in her final moments. Thank you for providing us with as much time as we needed and your kind words helping us through a difficult time. We cannot thank the Caring Pathways team enough for their compassion and support.”
