Testimonial:

“I can not thank you enough for the valuable service you provide. Dr. Karner came to my home to do a deed that I was dreading, yet knew was inevitable. She was there within an hour. She euthanized my 17 year old chihuahua in my dog’s own home surrounded by all her favorite sounds and smells. I have recommended your services to several people that are facing the same situation. Dr. Karner deserves a raise! This has to be a terrible job and she was wonderful!”
