I want to thank you all and Dr. Sara for helping us today. We had to let our 15 year old lab/mix go today. You all handled all the communication and the visit in the most compassionate way. Dr. Sara showed up during one of the most horrificic snow storms. She let us know what would happen, without any pressure. Toby was so comfortable, and passed the way he was meant to. With his humans by his side. I can not recommend these folks enough.
We had to say goodbye to our sweet, senior cat, Leo, last June. While it was heartbreaking for us, I can't say enough about Dr. Allison Edwards. She came to our home and was so kind, compassionate, and gentle. Leo was able to pass peacefully, surrounded by his family, and on his favorite spot on our bed. It was an enormous comfort knowing he moved on in the best possible way. For that, we are deeply grateful. Many thanks to Allison and Compassion 4 Paws. We have since recommend your services to a number of friends and will continue to do so.
What a horrifying day for myself and my family as we had scheduled to have our in home goodbyes on Tuesday the 5th of Feb and 3 hours before the arrival - the vet from this organization called and cancelled. They stated it was due to inclimate weather from the snow we recently received. Why on a day so important so our family would they do this? Why would they not themselves as a supposedly caring organization have backup plans or alternatives even if weather was limiting them on this beautiful sunny day? I am appalled and speechless over this lack of commitment and follow through from this organization and would highly encourage anyone to do your research first - there are many alternative to this place. I will also caution my Vet from recommending this place to anyone in the future. You have made a truly tragic and sad day almost unbearable for myself and my family.
Dear Brian, We felt horrible that we had to cancel your appointment, and can only imagine how difficult this last minute change was for you, your family and your pup. We cannot apologize enough. Unfortunately, for the first time in 6 years, we could not help families because of the weather. As you know, our doctor slid into a ditch that morning and was unable to get out. It was a sunny day, but well below freezing and the 8-12” of snow made travel unsafe. With this string of snowstorms, we are telling owners in advance that travel may be difficult and to make alternate arrangements. Unfortunately some things are out of our control. I am sincerely sorry we were unable to help.
Our beloved dog took a turn for the worse in one day on the day after thanksgiving. We called compassions 4 paws and the vet was there in a couple of hours. She was so kind, professional and gave us time to say our goodbye s. We didn’t feel rushed, it was such a peaceful passing, I highly recommend this service. Our dog Max was able to be comfortable on our couch with family next to him, surrounded with family. Thanks to Dr. Sara s kindness... we all appreciate her!
Last week Dr. Maia came to end the suffering of our sweet cat Maya. She was only ten and we still are not certain what exactly was happening to her, but it was obvious despite the efforts of our vet and us, we were not going to be able to save her. A few years ago, my partner had an sad but wonderful goodbye with her beloved pug with the help of Dr. Allison. I did not thank you then, so I do want to thank both of these wonderful vets for making these painful days so much easier for us and our pets.
I had an absolutely amazing experience with Dr. Maia. She was so patient, calm and compassionate every moment. My dear Lucy lost her battle with cancer and I was going to assure that her last moments were in her own home and doggie bed. Compassion for paws is an amazing service for animals and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I had her paw print embossed in clay and had her cremated. I especially appreciated the pamphlet they offered to assist with grief, thanks again
We found out in April that our Leonberger, Penny, had bone cancer. Our vet said we could try amputation and chemo but she was old for a Leonberger at 10 and we decided to spend the next few months just loving her and giving her the best days possible. I emailed Compassion 4 Paws with questions about euthanizing her and got an almost immediate warm, loving response that gave me all the information I needed and also helped us realize we were making the right decision. When the time finally came and Penny could no longer do any of the things she loved, Dr. Allison came over and was so kind and caring. She explained every step and answered every question. I feel like she "read" our family and instinctively knew how to communicate with us. She was so reassuring and loving - we really couldn't have asked for a better end to Penny's sweet life. Thank you to Compassion 4 Paws and Dr. Allison for providing amazing support and leaving us with good memories of Penny's last day.
Dr. Tracy came out to help our Elsa pass peacefully, I'm sure that it was very calming for Elsa to be at her own home - outside under a favorite tree of hers.
My husband and I very much appreciate Tracy's calming nature and did not feel rushed at all to have the final injection given.
Thank you Dr. Tracy and Compassion for Paws!
It has been 6 months since Dr. Allison came to our house to evaluate our sweet cattle dog Anni, and help us make the very difficult choice of letting her go. I can’t say enough good things about the entire experience, other then how difficult it was to say good-bye. Dr Allison took her time,was patient and loving with Anni as well as with us. We miss our sweet dog every day but feel so good about the choices we made in the end with the help of Compassion4paws. Thank you so much.
You know there's an end to everything, including the time you have with your pets. Alex--a feral kitten brought home by my youngest son--lived for 23 years without any health issues and never needed a Vet until her last day. My plan was to allow her to die of old age--it sounded pure and natural. It looked unkind, inhumane, slow, uncomfortable and unnecessary. Dr. Allison was intuitive, kind and solicitous of Alex, and me, and made Alex's last moments easy, comforting and pain free. I felt enormous relief and gratitude to have made the decision for an in-home euthanasia. Thank you Dr. Allison; compassion says it all!
