Dr. Catie Hawkins was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you for your care of and compassion with our Unique!
Dr. Katie made a new friend when she arrived at our home to meet Kallie (Kallie Krossfire of Keitz). Our boxer, of nearly 12 years, had DM. We wanted a private, relaxed and care-free exit for Kallie. She deserved it. It was tough. But, Dr. Katie offered all of the experienced techniques that provided the entire experience to be as natural as possible. We highly recommend this to anyone who is considering the same thing.
Words cannot express how thankful we are to have found you in our time of need. Thank you for helping us say good-bye to our very special baby and helping us know we made the best decision possible.
It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make to put Pearl to sleep as her body was beginning to shut down due to old age (she was 22 years old). I am not quite sure I would have been able to do it without Dr. Katie. She was kind, compassionate and I could tell that she cared about my pet even though she had never met Pearl before. She explained what to expect and walked us through the process step by step. I felt relieved and somewhat at peace knowing that Pearl was in good hands and was allowed to cross over peacefully.
Thank you Dr. Katie from the bottom of my heart. You have no idea what comfort you were able to provide us during Pearl’s last moments.
I just wanted to let you know that your Journeys Quality of Life Scale was very helpful for us today. We were struggling with watching our 21 year old cat start to fail, and despite our best efforts at gauging her quality of life and her suffering, we were struggling with the decision. Our vet was supportive, sage, kind, and helpful, and offered us your pamphlet. It helped us quantify all of the factors that had been swimming in our heads, and made it ok to let our sweet Mrs. Binxy go.
Good work, and thank you.
Dr. Hilst with her compassion and kindness made Meow’s journey over the Rainbow Bridge a stress free journey. We appreciate all that she does for our furbabies and for their parents. God bless you Dr. Hilst. You truly are are an Angel.

Dr. Laura was wonderful ❤️
Thank you Dr. Katie for being there when we needed you. We immediately knew we were in good hands. You were so compassionate to both Riley and us, assuring us that he was not in pain and that the end would be peaceful. Being at his side, in his home, at the end of his life was extremely important to us. We wanted him to know that he was loved and would be missed – you gave us that chance. Our clay footprint will be a cherished memento of him for the rest our lives. You truly have found your calling and we are grateful we found you.
Its been ten months and I have thought of you every day. To have you be in our home with us, for you to hold, soothe, give the gift of your time, honor and treat Samantha with such dignity during her final hours was a light in humanity. I feel so blessed that you touched our lives and helped Samantha at her most critical time. The time you took with us the day Sam left and the time you shared with us to follow-up and visit, bring her back home, talk about our feelings… all you did; we are with grateful heart for your light and love. You are an incredible gift to this beautiful planet, our common home to our fur children.

Thank you Dr. Katie for making Sassy’s end of life peaceful. She was terrified of going to the vet (scary pet carrier, scary car, scary noises and smells at the vet) so on top of a very difficult decision I couldn’t stand the thought of her last hours being spent that way. I was so glad to find your website and realize there was an alternative. You were so kind and gentle with her I know she is at peace. Every pet deserves a peaceful end of life in the comfort of their own home, especially considering all the joy they bring to ours.
