Thank you Dr. Jenn Winnick, for coming to our rescue when we had to say goodbye to our precious Macey Belle. You cared as much for us as for Macey, you were kind, gentle, patient and respectful, and gave us precious time with Macey, taking everything at our pace and hers. Because of your expertise and care, Macey passed ever so peacefully with no distress. My heart is in anguish, but I know we helped Macey pass with dignity and comfort because of you. I am forever filled with gratitude. You touch many lives with the work you do, and it is so very important. Thank you so much!
Thank you for making his transition so calm and smooth. It allowed me full closure.
Peaceful Pathways was truly amazing from the swift response and how compassionate they are on the phone. Amy you are a beautiful soul and you are truly amazing at your job. Dr. Winnick is truly an angel! She was so empathic and was extremely patient and understanding through the entire process. My Bailey hated the vets so to be able to have go on his journey in his favorite doughnut bed was the perfect send off for him. Thank you Peaceful Pathways for all that do!
When it was time to put our beloved Baloo to sleep, we were blessed to meet Dr. Winnick. Dr. Winnick came to our home and prepared us for the procedure; she was kind, patient, and empathetic. Dr. Winnick made a very painful and emotional situation as comforting as possible. When the time comes for our 19-year-old dog, we will definitely call Dr. Winnick. I highly recommend Dr. Winnick of Peaceful Pathways.
Thank you Dr. Winnick for being so kind, patient, empathetic and caring during the most difficult time of our lives. Our Daisy was truly our baby and having to say goodbye to her was devastating. Thank you for making sure Daisy didn’t feel any discomfort. Her passing was peaceful and painless and Daisy felt safe next to her mommy and daddy while resting on the couch. I would 100% recommend Dr. Winnick for anyone facing this heartbreaking situation with their beloved pet.
Thank you so much for helping us with Maggie. Your accurate and honest analysis helped us make the right decision for her. It was so hard to let her go, but your kindness and compassion throughout the whole process made it a little easier. I wanted her to go peacefully surrounded by family, friends and her precious toys and you made that possible. My sincere gratitude.
Dr. Winnick and her team at Peaceful Pathways are sincere and compassionate caregivers. Their veterinary expertise, innate kindness, and careful support made the most difficult process something we could manage and process. Their services are a gift to all pet owners. Thanks to Dr. Winnick, we were able to give our beloved pet a peaceful, humane, and loving farewell. I will never forget Dr. Winnick’s quiet understanding and gentle care. It made such a difference to our entire family.
I wouldn’t have wanted to do this any other than with Dr.Winnick. There’s not much more I can say to add to all the other reviews. She is everything everyone mentions and we are grateful she was there for us to help with this transition. I feel like Dr.Winnick is forever a part of the journey with our girl, Juve. Thank you for treating Juve with respect in the end.
There are not enough words to explain just how kind, caring, and patient Dr. Jen was with our special boy and our family. Making the arrangements was friendly and uncomplicated. The office was wonderful about answering so many questions. She treated our dying heart dog with such kindness and respect even after he was gone. Thank you.
Dr. Winnick is such an angel. Calm, respectful, and gentle. Her thoughts on Eden reassured me that it was time to let her go. Everything was explained thoroughly and clearly. I’ve already recommended Peaceful Pathways to a friend and will continue to recommend her in the future. Through this experience, I found not only had I used Dr. Winnick previously but so had 2 others. Thank you again, Dr. Winnick, for taking such good care of all of us 2 and 4 legged beings.
May the good Lord and the friendly angels be with you. We treasure the memory we created together this morning. Jenn’s kind and gentle manner helped us immensely.
Thank you to Dr. Winnick and the Peaceful Pathways staff for helping us through a very difficult day. Our decision to put to rest our Cider girl was difficult and with much anxiety. Dr. Winnick was nothing less than an angel through the entire process, as was the staff when we were making this decision. Dr. Winnick was prompt, patient, kind, and loving to Cider through the whole process. Although we are still sad and missing our little gal terribly, I would recommend Peaceful Pathways to anyone needing it.
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.
With much appreciation and a very full heart
There are times in life that are just gut wrenching. Making the decision to put my silly and scrappy beagle Frank to sleep was one of them.
Dr. Minnick was so kind and gentle with Frank. As hard as it was to say goodbye, seeing him slip away so easily was a comfort.
Dr. Winnick and her staff were kind, compassionate, and professionally supportive in helping me to say goodbye to Luke. He was calm and comfortable as he made a peaceful exit. I’ve had to say goodbye to a number of furry family members over the years, and Peaceful Pathways provided the kindest and gentlest experience by far. I can’t recommend their service enough for anyone facing this difficult time.
Dr. Winnick visited us at home and helped take care of Pluto in his final moments. She was incredibly kind, loving, gentle to Pluto and so very considerate and patient with our emotions. She gave us ample time to say our goodbyes. Pluto is our first dog and we had no ideas of what to expect – so we are very grateful to Dr. Winnick for her guidance when we were at our lowest. Dr. Winnick was respectful of our Indian traditions and Pluto is in a happy place, free of pain thanks to her.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
