Thank you, Dr. Benson.
We were losing our 16 year old mini schnauzer, Jalapeno, and did not want to euthanize him away from home. We got Jalapeno as a puppy who could fit in the palm of my hand and he lived his whole life with us in the same house.
Dr. Pandi was the doctor who came the day we needed her. I have had to euthanize other pets and that was very painful, but this time Dr. Pandi made it so much easier with her gentle, comforting ways. Jalapeno went peacefully, there were no problems or complications at all.
I would highly recommend Paws into Grace if you are considering at home euthanasia. I am so glad our little schnauzer baby did not have to be traumatized on his last day here by taking him to a veterinary office. I sincerely appreciate the kindness shown to us during the loss of our Jalapeno.
You might find euthanasia services cheaper if you go to a vet’s office, but you will not find better than Paws into Grace. Thank you so much — Lisa and Joe Sitko
This review is long overdue, but it took some time…
I am utterly thankful for the kind service Paws into Grace provides. DrPandi was patient and gave me all the time I needed. I just cannot find the words to say how much I appreciate the service they provide. A gift from God to allow me to give my beloved a peaceful restful loving exit in familiar surroundings with all who loved her.
A year ago I had to have my 15-year-old cat, Clyde, put to sleep.
Although I love my vet, I just couldn’t subject him to another trip over there, so I called Paws Into Grace. They were able to send someone within an hour. Dr. Benson was sensitive, unobtrusive, and gentle with Clyde.
My neighbor and I sobbed throughout the process, but Dr. Benson never made me feel self-conscious, just encouraged me to keep petting him. I am still grateful I was able to find such a skilled and compassionate vet to help me get through that day. Also, she sent a sympathy card the same week.
Dr Benson is wonderful! Extraordinary in fact.
Our 12 year old Italian Greyhound, Chili, was had stopped eating and clearly the end was near. I was so relieved that I was able to avoid stressing him out by taking him to the vet’s office to be euthanized. This way he was able to rest comfortably in his favorite doggie bed and quietly slip away while we petted him and spoke softly to him during his final moments of life.
Thank you Dr Benson.
My 9year old pitbull was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the beginning of January. This dog was my child, my animal soulmate, my BABY. We grew up together and he had been with me through most of my adult life up to this point. We were beyond devastated. He deteriorated rather quickly and on Saturday morning 1/12/13, he let us know it was time.
We normally take our animals to Cabrillo Pet Hospital (the are awesome, btw), but on this morning we just didn’t have the heart to load him up into the car and drive him 20 minutes to his death. We called them and they referred us to Paws into Grace. We called and left a message and they responded immediately. Dr. Pandi was available that day and was able to be at our house by 1:30.
Putting Mowgli down in the comfort of his home, in his doggie bed, in our arms was the best decision we ever made. Dr. Pandi was gracious, professional and beyond compassionate. Getting to pet him and hold him and tell him we loved him as he left this world was a beautiful experience and we recommend it to anyone who is faced with this difficult situation.
We know he is enjoying tons of bacon and steak and chasing after all the squirrels he can handle in doggie heaven. And we know this was the best way for him to go- as hard as it was.
Thank you again to Dr. Pandi and Paws into Grace.
My guy was 13 years old…
That’s longer than my marriage, longer than college and graduate school together, older than my kids…13 years is a long time…
I had met someone at a party several months earlier who had told me about the, “at home IT experience.” Then, I had thought I really needed to save up $$$ to give my guy this…I knew IT was coming.
My guy was 13 years old. He was sick…he had been sick for a while. It finally got to the point I realized, “IT was time.” It took a lot of courage from me. I had been thinking about IT but was dreading everything about IT.
We had a fabulous Veterinarian but he HATED being at the Vet. He shivered and shook at the Vet. Broke my heart every time.
We were in the thick of the holidays, it was Sunday. My guy was miserable. He spent 23 hours a day in agony and 1 hour at most, “comfortable.” IT was time…
I YELPED…Thank GAWD for YELP!
I needed someone and I needed someone NOW. I called the local 24 Hour Vet Hospitals. $$$! Plus, “this is just an estimate, the price could go up depending on…”
I called Paws into Grace….
YES they could come TODAY
YES they came to POWAY
YES they could take care of everything
The price was $20-$50 LESS than the 24hr Hospitals. The price was firm and clear. ( I appreciate that a lot.)
Paws into Grace could not have been nicer!
I spoke to Dr Benson on the phone and she was empathetic, compassionate, explained things clearly…what more could a dog mom want?
Dr. Pandi was at my home within 2 hours. She was so incredibly kindhearted. She explained everything. She was incredibly respectful and clear…especially about having children present. She cried with us.
IT was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. My guy meant the world to me. Dr. Pandi followed up a week later with the most compassionate condolence card ever.
I can’t recommend this group strongly enough. If you are considering IT, please, give this group a call. You won’t regret it. I promise!
