Dr. Katie helped our old girl Lacy pass over the rainbow bridge. She is kind, compassionate, and considerate. Dr. Katie is truly an angel among us, and I am grateful for her allowing us the option to let her pass peacefully at home, in her bed.

Katie is an angel straight from heaven! She is awesome! Did a very professional way of the very last minutes with our little girl, but with a huge heart of gold and Grace! I wish we knew of her before. If it's time, please... call Katie. You'll thank yourself for ever.

Dr. Katie is extremely compassionate and caring. She cried with my wife throughout the whole procedure and made it as pleasant of experience that could be expected. I would definately recoommend her to anyone that needs help with their pet crossing over the rainbow bridge. Thank you Dr. Katie!

Dr. Katie was so kind and helpful during an extremely difficult time. She helped our sweet pup pass over the rainbow bridge with grace and dignity and calmness and at the same time was so supportive to my husband and I who were a mess during the process. Thank you so much Dr. Katie. You are so wonderful.

Thank you Dr. Katie for doing what you do. Knowing I was going to have to say goodbye to Miss Mayo was painful enough, but because of you we got to do it in the comfort her home and make it personal. I’m forever grateful ????

Dr. Katie recently came into my home. She was there to help me with transitioning of my 13 year old rottie, Buddha. She was very understanding and empathetic. Knowing this was the first time having a family pet transition to the afterlife. Dr. Katie was very gentle, answered all our questions, and allowed us to say goodbye. Buddha’s transition was very dignified and loving. She absolutely made the experience easier for us. A real blessing to meet her!

Dr. Katie was amazing during one of the hardest days of my life. After 16 years of unconditional love I had to make the hard decision of letting my best friend go. Dr. Katie was very sweet, compassionate, patient, understanding, comforting, gentle, loving and honestly treated Franky my Pomeranian like he was one of her own. Everything she did she did with care and love from the moment she came into our home to even weeks after by sending a sweet card to just let us know she was thankful for allowing us to have her help with Franky passing. I honestly highly recommend Dr. Katie to anyone that is looking for this kind of service and honestly although it’s been very hard with not having Franky i do feel very blessed and thankful we found Dr. Katie and his final moments were at home surrounded with love in the comfort of his home. If i ever need to do this again i definitely will be using her. Thank you Dr. Katie again for doing such a hard job but being so kind and loving during it!

I reached out to Dr. Katie to send my old 16-year-old cat over the rainbow bridge. She responded immediately to let me know that unfortunately she would not be able to come to my home in Georgia to help Perry, because her license only …

Dr Katie was a huge blessing to me yesterday as I had to say goodbye to my baby, Kabuki. Buki and I had 20 wonderful years together and it was very hard to let her go. I knew when I made the appointment that I was doing the right thing, but one is never without. Dr Katie was very soothing and reassuring every moment. She loved my baby at first sight and I saw her getting emotional as well. I don't know how I would've made it through the process without her. And I'm so very grateful that I was able to release Kabuki in our own home, wrapped in her fave blankie. It was very peaceful and gentle and I can never thank Dr Katie enough. My Buki will live on in my heart, but it is also comforting to have her paw print and lock of fur to give me physical tokens as well. Thank you so very much, Dr Katie. And thanks to your assistant, Gabby, as well for being so sweet and comforting on the phone and her patience with my tears as we talked. ????????????????????????

Dr. Katie helped us with one of the most difficult decisions our family has ever had to make. She was kind, considerate and extremely professional. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone facing the difficult decision of putting down a family pet.

This was one of the most difficult experiences we've ever navigated but Dr. Katie did and said all the right things. She was compassionate and kind and treated our beloved and sweet aging kitty with the utmost of respect and dignity in his final moments. She is kind and compassionate and a giver of peace.

We are a big fur baby family with senior pets. Dr. Katie has been by our side with each of the five goodbyes we have had to have over the years. It means a lot to us to not have to transport our fur baby to a vet office, but for them to …

This is from a service done on 9/19/2020. It’s taken me a while to do this because we still cry a lot. We found out in early September 2020 that our 11 year old husky had cancer. Katie was very responsive and came to us for a quality of life consult on 9/18. Our husky, typically scared of new people, warmed up to her a little bit and let her have a few pets while we talked. We thought we had more time. However, she took a turn for the worst THAT NIGHT and Katie was able to stop in the next day to help us make that hard decision. She made the worst day of our life easier to process with her kindness and grace. If we ever needed this service again in the future, we would go through her. Highly, highly recommend.

I couldn't have asked for a better person for one of the saddest days of my life. Mr. Baby found me when he was only 1-day old. He was more than 15 years old when his day came. We loved each other so much. Katie was perfect.

I reached out to Dr. Katie about a month ago when I knew my 16 year old rescue pit Roxie was nearing the end (again). Roxie rallied again but I knew she was losing her fight. None of us wanted to make the call but on Monday 7/12/21 Roxie let us know she was ready. I called and spoke to Gaby to set it up, very compassionate and she knew all the right things to say. Dr. Katie came Wednesday afternoon and immediately we felt at ease with her, she bonded with our little chiweenie and Roxies 10 year old son Marley. She felt like a part of the family that understands completely what we were going through. Her advice to help our other babies understand was amazingly accurate. Thank you doesn't seem enough for the compassion and understanding you showed to our family

You will be pleased. First my dog. Then my cat. I would not have chosen her again if the experience with my dog had not been so wonderful. She will help you thru it. I do not lie. She is special.

Dr. Katie is wonderful. I was heartbroken to lose my beagle. Katie offered me her professional knowledge with the most caring, kind, and thoughtful counsel. The service she provides makes a difficult decision the right decision for a beloved companion.
