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.

Caring Pathways and Dr. Lori were extremely patient, compassionate and caring. Dr. Lori sat and talked with us as long as we needed. It’s with her genuine care and concern we were able to get through this heartbreaking situation.

The Journey to Goodbye: Part 6

Written by: Mandi Browning Mabel is doing well! She has seemed to gain some of her weight back and is eating and drinking all right. She still has moments where she seems confused; crying out until one of us comes to her. We are going to be gone on vacation for a week and I…

The Journey to Goodbye: Part 4

Written by: Mandi Browning We are going out of town for 4 days. Although Mabel is doing well, it is always a bit unnerving to leave her for that long. Kidney issues can come on so quickly and I worry that she will become ill and I will not be able to get to her…
