Thank you so much Caring Pathways for the services you provide and your compassion for animals as well as for their people. Our Casey was on the mend from the removal of a toe due to an osteosarcoma, when she stopped eating and became a little lethargic. After a visit to her vet and then to a hospital, her diagnosis was cancer in the spleen and liver. We were told the best course of action because of the amount of tumors that were found, was euthanasia: we were taken aback. What…my dog might have been missing a toe, but she was still chasing squirrels in our back yard a couple of days prior to this diagnosis. This was too hard of a decision to make alone and I felt like I didn’t have enough information, so I brought her home. After doing some research on what she had, we stumbled upon Caring Pathways website. In one conversation with Dr. Magnuson things were explained to me in a way that I understood the severity of what she had and, although a heart wrenching decision, why putting her to sleep was the best decision we could make to ease her suffering. Dr. Smith and her assistant came to our house and we as a family were able to be with Casey, say goodbye and grieve for her, without putting her or our family in a stressful situation. I know her last memories will be of the hill she use to sit on in the yard, surrounded by the people that loved her. Everyone we have met or spoken with at Caring Pathways truly loves animals and are very aware of the feelings of the people they deal with. We miss our Casey girl every day, but I can’t say enough how thankful we are to have found you during one of the toughest decisions our family has ever had to make.
