From the very first, Dr. Winnick was so friendly, down-to-earth, and grounded as she gave us information in one of the most challenging times of my life…information on how my beloved bearded collie was going to be released out of his body through euthanasia. When she arrived I was pretty much in denial at how close the time was and pretty much fell apart after she left even though I felt very safe with her and trusted her immediately. During the next two weeks I changed the date a couple times and each time the Dr. and her staff were very patient, they’ve been through this kind of confusion and anxiety so many times and they are real pros at handling this. When the day arrived she came in and greeted Rumi and my friends who had gathered. Rumi lay down right beside her as she gave the first shot. I feel he trusted her too. She then gave us plenty of time to read a poem, shower him with rose petals and say our goodbyes. Before she shaved his leg to give him the final injection she asked me if it was okay. I nodded yes and she went ahead. The injection was done slowly and Rumi quietly drifted into eternity. Then one of my friends and Dr. Winnick carried him out on a stretcher.
The experience was seamless and I feel so grateful that we had a compassionate person to handle the details and expertise. I recommend Dr. Winnick without reservation. And you will love her beautiful kind blue eyes. By the way, Rumi’s ashes arrived today and everything was exactly as we asked. Thank you, Dr. Winnick and staff.
I had to make the hardest decision to put my baby girl to sleep. Peaceful Pathways handled this with so much grace and patience. Dr. Chrissy Metzger was a blessing to work with, she was so patient and explained the steps clearly. She made my first home euthanasia much more bearable and the experience was beautiful and peaceful. I’m so grateful to have those last moments with my baby at home. Thank you peaceful pathways!
I just wanted to say thank you for making Mitzy’s transition as good as possible. You were perfect and I appreciate so much being able to do “it” in my home. Thank you, thank you for your caring and sensitivity.
Mitzy was a perfect kitty for me and I wanted her to not feel any stress or pain. It all happened as you said.
Know that I appreciate you and your caring service VERY much!!!
This was harder than losing my mom…. but she made it peaceful and loving.
With much appreciation and a very full heart
My family and I were absolutely wrecked from grief yesterday, and I was nervous about bringing a new doctor into such an uncomfortable and sensitive situation. Dr. Winnick was the best possible version of who we ended and made it possible to get some portion of relief and release in saying goodbye to Meeko. With the absolute full depth of our hearts – thank you.
Our heartfelt thanks to Peaceful Pathways and Dr. Metzger for her help when we put our dog, Buddy, down last week. Putting Buddy down was one of the most difficult decisions we have had to make. Dr. Metzger’s kind words and warm, loving support made the process so much easier. The process was calm, gentle, and caring. What could have been a heartbreaking situation turned into a peaceful, compassionate, and love-filled experience. We will forever be grateful.
This is the second time I’ve called Peaceful Pathways for help with my ailing pet. It is important to me to have my pet at home when it’s time for them to have this type of service. Dr. Winnich is such a compassionate and efficient person to facilitate an emotional procedure. You don’t have the feeling that there is anything more important for Peaceful Pathways than to take care of your precious pet. You have time to spend with them before and after the procedure with no time constraints. For me, it’s important to have my pets in their home environment when it’s time for this type of procedure. Peaceful Pathways and Dr. Winnich provide this comforting service, and I recommend it to my friends and to anyone who has to face this difficult decision.
I would highly recommend Dr. Metzger to anyone that is having to endure the hardest moment of being a pet owner. You will be in great hands. It is a moment I will remember forever, and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way, thanks to her. She made the whole experience peaceful and honoring to our sweet boy. Thank you! xo
He felt cared and loved for up until the very end. I cannot thank Dr. Metzger, Dr. Winnick and all the staff at Peaceful Pathways for the love and tenderness you provide to pets and their humans at the end of their lives.
Thank you again
Dr. Winnick – Thank you so much for coming today. It meant so much to us that we could all be with Tango. It was a really peaceful experience for her and us. Thank you again.
I am writing this through the copious tears of a deep loss, and with a sense of profound gratitude for everything you & Dr Metzger did. You’re doing important & much needed work with a grace, sensitivity and flexibility that stands out against the backdrop of the world as it is now. Please know that both of you will always be in our hearts.
Dr. Metzger brought us peace in a time when I was heartbroken. Fritter passed so peacefully, on her bed, in the backyard with the people who love her—and she loves—sitting next to her and touching her, reassuring her of our love.
What a godsend your service is. I could not have done that any other way. And I wouldn’t have wanted to.
Ian and I are so incredibly grateful for your business and your demeanor and love for our pets and empathy for the owners.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
