Euthanasia in the
Comfort of Home
Saying goodbye to a family member, best friend and loyal companion is a difficult and sad experience. That goodbye can take weeks or months, or it can be sudden and unexpected. Given the choice, being at home is the least stressful and calmest place to be for you and your pet.
We will partner with you to make your pet's journey dignified and peaceful, with compassion and support.
About the Veterinarian
Dr. Karin Christopher
Dr. Karin Christopher has been a small animal veterinarian for over 20 years. Her work in emergency medicine, small animal practice and at the University of Minnesota, strengthened her desire to be a catalyst to the human-animal-bond, and in making pets comfortable. This led to the founding of Pet Quietus.
She believes that the final stages of a pet's life should be afforded the peace and dignity that we, as humans, desire. Being in the home is the best place to achieve that "quiet." She finds great satisfaction in helping families through this difficult time and in supporting people through the challenges of improving quality-of-life for aged and terminally-ill pets.
Dr. Karin is certified in hospice and palliative care and is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care. She lives in Corpus Christi with her husband, and three children. They lovingly share their home and hearts with their dogs, Boomer and Chase, and the cat that rules the roost, Jasmine. Dodger, Oliver, Gummy and Fletch are gone but never forgotten.
"We sent our Stella's soul to heaven with the help of Dr. Karin. You, Dr. Karin, brought peace to Stella and to us. Thank you Dr. Karin for having a service such as this, as it truly is a blessing when you know it is time to say good-bye."
