Walking With You Through the End of Life Journey
When you don’t know how the end will happen, or what your pet’s needs will be, we’re here to walk with you. And when that time comes, we will be there to help you and your best friend with a compassionate and peaceful transition.
Our veterinarians are available to serve you and your pet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Appointments at night from 8pm-7am may be limited, as well as holidays. It is our mission and goal to serve you and your beloved friend with timely care of our services, with same day appointments available to you if needed.
“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.”
“We are so grateful for Dr. Eddie Desko and the entire Caring Pathways team. From my initial call and virtual appointment/health assessment with Dr. Emily to the final goodbye with Dr. Desko, we would have been lost without their guidance and compassion. We could not have asked for a more peaceful experience as our Charlie crossed the rainbow bridge, and I am so grateful to the doctors for the confidence they instilled in the decisions we had to make.“
“It took me awhile to get into the right headspace to write this. Dr. Kim was amazing with me and Stanley as we said our goodbyes. I’m grateful, especially during this time of COVID, that Caring Pathways offers a way to say goodbye in the comfort of the home. After almost 17 years together, I couldn’t imagine Stanley being alone at the end. I miss him dearly but can’t say good things about Dr. Kim and the team. Thank you for everything you did for us.”

In 1986, Dr. Magnuson founded Raintree Animal Hospital in Fort Collins and owned the practice for 22 years.
