Caring. Compassion. A Graceful Departure

After over 20 years as a home hospice/euthanasia veterinarian, I have decided to take a sabbatical as of April 9, 2024. Thank you to all my amazing clients and referring veterinary practices. I had the BEST clients and BEST referring veterinary practices. I will miss all of you and wish you only the best.

If you’re inquiring about your pet’s ashes, please call Angel Paws Pet Aftercare at 760-510-1010.

We understand how heart-wrenching it can be to face losing a member of the family, especially when it is a beloved pet. The bond we form can be very deep. Graceful Departure Pet Center’s aim is to make that journey the least painful and as smooth as possible for both the pet and its people. Call us at 619-741-5366 to schedule an appointment.
