The History of Caring Pathways in Denver

Caring Pathways was started in 2010 by our owner and founder, Dr. Larry Magnuson, who has served the Denver community for many years by providing exceptional veterinary care. The initial concept of Caring Pathways, which eventually became Dr. Magnuson’s business plan, came to him in December 2009 when he realized that this was where his passion lay: in compassionate end-of-life care for pets. By July 2010, Caring Pathways was established and Dr. Magnuson had surrounded himself with likeminded team members who shared his passion and his vision.

Dr. Magnuson and his team are honored to care for the pets and pet families in our community and it is part of the ongoing mission of Caring Pathways to provide compassionate care, support, and resources. Our team members work together to represent a unified goal of providing the kindest care possible to pets and their loving owners.

Blog Post

Dr. Mavi Graves

Words from one of our veterinarians, Dr. Mavi Graves:

“As an end-of-life veterinarian, providing as smooth and peaceful of a transition as possible for pets in the comfort of home is a vocation I honestly look forward to every day. I still cry a little bit almost every day supporting pets and pet families on what may be the saddest day of their life, but I am always honored to help families give their pets the gift of a good death at the end of a life well-lived. As one end-of-life vet put it, ‘Where there is grief, there is great love, and all day long I’m looking at that love.'”
