My husband and I want to thank Dr. Megan Coveyou, DVM for everything she did for us with our beloved Tyson.

I contacted Caring Pathways November 30, 2015 in the evening and talked to Dr. Megan about our 19 year old Rottweiler, he had tried to get up and was not able to (we believe he as a mild seizure that night) he did eventually get up, and Dr. Megan offered to come out to check him. I think she picked up on my anxiety over that right away as we were not ready to say good bye. Dr. Megan said let’s wait until the morning and see how he is doing, with so much compassion in her voice, that I knew this women honestly felt my heart ache.

My husband and I woke up at 5:30 a.m. and of course the very first thing we did is check on our Tyson, he could not stand up and he was not even going to try, he had a look on his face that he was done. My heart broke into a million pieces, I reached out to Caring Pathways again and reached Dr. Meagan still on call. I told her Tyson’s condition, and she said I can be there in an hour, she was there even before an hour.

When Dr. Megan arrived she asked us to help Tyson up and he did stand but was very weak, she gave us the news that we already in our hearts knew. Dr. Meagan explained the process every step, she allowed us to spend time with him and always asked if we were ready for the next step. Dr. Meagan is the most compassionate person I have ever met in a situation like this, she was warm, loving and empathetic to what we were going through. I saw her shed tears through this process which only solidified my initial thoughts about Dr. Meagan’s compassion.

Caring Pathways is an exceptional service that allowed us to say goodbye to our beloved Tyson in his own environment without being stressed out, and Dr. Meagan is awesome! I would highly recommend this service to anyone they really care about the loss of your animals from beginning to end. Thank you again Dr. Meagan for everything you did and the thoughtful card you sent at just the right time.
