Services and Pricing

In-Home Pet Euthanasia
After a final professional consult and review, our Caring Pathways transitional services allow for a dignified and respectful euthanasia. Our compassionate veterinary team is dedicated to creating a peaceful end and will provide the space to honor the journey of a life shared together.

Our appointment fee starts at $329 with additions for drive-time, nights, weekends, and holidays.

Aftercare
Every aspect of your pet’s final care and arrangements is of the utmost significance in honoring the life, and the love, you shared. We will walk you through paw print memorial options, cremation services, and custom pet memorial products.

Cremation costs depend on if you would like your pet's cremains returned to you and the size of your pet. $169 is an average cost of the cremation services.

TeleAdvice
A TeleAdvice Appointment with our highly-skilled veterinarians facilitate in-depth conversations using video conferencing to help you better understand the quality of your pet’s life. We’ll also explain options for comfort and end-of-life care.

Our TeleAdvice Appointments are 30 minutes with a fee of $99.

Consultation, Palliative and Hospice Care
In-home palliative and hospice care helps alleviate the stress associated with visits to the veterinary clinic, and allows you and your pet to enjoy your special time together in the familiar surroundings of home. The decision to pursue hospice care, though not for everyone, strengthens the bond between you and your pet and helps prepare for the passing of your special companion.

Our Consultation Appointments have a base price of $329.

Our Story

Dr. Larry Magnuson earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University in 1967. In 1986, Dr. Magnuson founded Raintree Animal Hospital in Fort Collins and owned the practice for 22 years. After spending more than 47 years as a veterinarian, he realized he wanted to provide pets with an in-home, end-of-life care that was compassionate and peaceful for the pet and it's family. In 2010, he began his journey with Caring Pathways servicing the Denver Metro Area. In June of 2020, Caring Pathways of Northern Colorado opened to service Fort Collins and it's surrounding areas.
