Helping Animal Companions Cross Over


eterinarian and Final Journey LLC Founder Kristen A. Klie and staff are entering their fourth year of offering in- home pet euthanasia services. Understanding how difficult it can be to say goodbye to a pet family member, and adhering to their goal of providing humane, dignified and compassion- ate assistance at a time of transition, staff offers options for clients who do not wish, or are unable, to bring their beloved animal companion into a hospital/clinic. Services include euthanasia with cremation or home burial. At-home offer- ings enable clients to be in a familiar setting, whether alone with their pet, or with invited loved ones. The service includes euthanasia, vet- erinarian, tech- nician, seda- tion, and travel/ transport. Many clients seeking a serene, gentle way for their

animal companions to transition have been grateful to learn about this “animal hospice” option and the business has grown accordingly since its inception. According to Dr. Klie “We have really seen what a difference it makes to [clients] and their companions to be in a loving home environment. After sixteen years as a veterinarian, I find that this is where I’ve been able to make the biggest impact. Our clients are re- ally able to feel that the bond with their pet is honored, and that we, too, recognize their pets as family.”
