Compassionate Euthanasia

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.

    Home Euthanasia

    Home euthanasia using sedation and anesthesia is the most humane way of saying goodbye to your beloved pet. Decrease fear, anxiety and stress for you and your pet. by staying in the comfort of home.

    Hospice Consult

    Pets benefit from home comfort care, or hospice. When you use Pet Quietus, you are working with a veterinarian with over 25 years in the field who is certified in hospice and palliative care.

    QOL Consult

    If you need the support of a veterinarian who is experienced in end-of-life care and advocating for not only your pet but your entire family, a Quality of Life Consult can help you in deciding "When is the right time for euthanasia?"

    Body Care and Cremation

    You have many options in choosing respectful aftercare that is right for your pet and for you. Pet Quietus offers assistance with blanketed/basket transport and cremation, or you can make arrangements on your own.

    Dr. Karin Christopher has been a small animal veterinarian for over 23 years.  Her work in emergency medicine, small animal private practice and as a professor 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 the only veterinarian in the Corpus Christi area that is certified in hospice and palliative care. She is a also a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, our local Coastal Bend Veterinary Medical Association and is a member and president-elect of the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care.  She lives in Corpus Christi with her husband and three children and they share their home and hearts with their dogs, Boomer, Chase and Suri and the cat that rules the roost, Jasmine.  Dodger, Oliver, Gummy and Fletch are gone but never forgotten.
