A compassionate way to say goodbye in your own home.
Caring Pathways: In-Home Compassionate Pet Care at Life's End
Your pet is a cherished friend and companion. When it’s time to say goodbye, it can be one of the most difficult experiences of your relationship. Dr. Larry Magnuson founded Caring Pathways in the hopes of creating a different way for pets and their owners to say their final goodbyes: in peace and with kindness in the home setting.
As you enter this end-of-life journey with your pet, Caring Pathways desires to help you with expertise, compassion, and tenderness as you progress down the path. We are here to provide insight to help you determine when the time is right, comforting care to ease the passage of the last days, and peaceful, tranquil euthanasia to make the final moments together a gentle memory. There is a Caring Pathway for your pet’s journey.
