COVID-19 Update:

At this time we are available for In-Home Euthanasia visits and Virtual Quality of Life Consultations. Dr. Ravina has been vaccinated for COVID-19, and we are taking all appropriate precautions regarding sanitizing carefully between appointments. We are comfortable coming inside your home, although outdoor appointments are still recommended and encouraged. Given the latest data on the Omicron variant, Dr. Ravina will wear a mask for every visit. We strongly recommend, but don’t require, that everyone in attendance above the age of 2 wear a face-fitting mask, regardless of vaccination status. If you are scheduling an indoor visit, we recommend opening windows and doors as possible/practical, to improve ventilation. Please inform the doctor if you or any other member of your family is experiencing any COVID-like symptoms or have had recent exposure to a COVID-positive individual, and we will touch base with you to discuss a plan.

Upcoming Closures:
Wednesday, July 6th – Tuesday, July 12th
Thursday, July 21st – Saturday, July 30th

We want to hear from you!

“I just want to thank you again a thousand times for making our Tundra to not hurt anymore. Having her at home and you being so kind…I thank you for that. The kindness and compassion you gave Tundra and us meant everything in the world!”

“I wanted to write you to tell you how truly grateful we are for your help transitioning our dog to her next stage, whatever that might be. You made the day that we feared safe, authentic, and meaningful, and we will forever be grateful for that. We feel as if we had the chance to say “goodbye” to our girl in a way that was right for her. Thank you for helping us make her last day a good day surrounded by love, as it should be. Your job is not easy at all, but it is so necessary and a true gift. Somehow you managed to be both present and invisible, if that makes sense, which allowed us to be “alone” with our sweet Maya for one final morning.”

“At a time when a family is about to lose a friend, companion, and loved one, how do you begin to express a huge, well deserved ‘Thank You for All Given Unconditionally’ that our family member, the family dog Sophie, provided time and time again? We chose to keep Sophie at her home, calm, surrounded with love, as she had given us. Dr. Ravina came to our home and aid, to support all of us continuing the love, kindness, compassion, care and respect Sophie deserved during her transition. My strongest endorsement in support of Dr. Ravina. Thank You Gabby”

“My 19 year old kitty hated to go to the vet. When she was diagnosed with terminal cancer, I knew I did not want her to die naturally in terrible pain, nor did I want her last moments to be filled with terror at the vet’s office. Dr. Ravina’s at home hospice service provided my husband and I with an option that ensured that Snickers’ last weeks were as comfortable as possible. Gabby was kind and helpful, and she was supportive of our decisions while also providing insight into how other pet parents made similar decisions. She was also extremely flexible, even when we requested to change an appointment at 10pm the evening prior. Being able to euthanize Snickers at home was important not only for my kitty’s experience, but my experience as well. During the process, Gabby was calm and respectful, she explained everything and did not rush us. Being at home helped to minimize my stress and while I miss my kitty terribly, I know that this was the right decision. I highly recommend Peaceful Paws to anyone with a terminally ill pet.”

“Gabby ~ everything about Blaze’s passing was so special, you are doing an amazing job and I have the utmost respect for what you are doing…I know it can’t always be easy. Thank you a million times over, you comforted both Blaze and myself perfectly, you have a very nurturing way about you during very difficult times.”

“Dr. Ravina came to our house to care for and euthanize our beloved old dog Tikka. She was professional and kind and showed compassion for the whole family. It made a difficult experience much easier. I would highly recommend her services. Thank you Dr. Ravina!”
