By far, last week was the toughest week of our family's lives when we made the decision to let our 15 y.o. dog go to rest peacefully and forever. Dr. Cornelius and her team treated my family and sweet 15 y.o. Krissey with the utmost respect during this final moment. We so appreciated the gentleness with which Dr. Cornelius walked us through the process. We were touched by the empathy and care in the way our emotions were handled. If you are crossing through that chapter of life with your family pet, I highly recommend "Last Wishes." Thank you Dr. Cornelius and your staff. Blessings! Shelley M.  


There's nothing more important to me than my baby girl. She's 14 yrs old and still hanging on. As odd as it reads, we're looking forward to another home visit next week with Dr. Cornelius at Last Wishes In-Home Pet Hospice and Euthanasia. She gives us peace of mind so we can focus on and enjoy the time we've got left Jessica H  


Dr. Cornelius at Last Wishes In-Home Pet Hospice and Euthanasia, 7 months ago you helped us say goodbye to our beautiful rescue Hardy. Yesterday, you again helped us peacefully say goodbye to Drifter, our 13 year old German Shepherd who lost his valiant fight with cancer. The service you provide is beyond compare. Thank you for your compassion, tenderness and for allowing him to have his final moments in the comfort of his home. I truly hope I don't need your services any time soon, but I will be recommending you to everyone I know that loves their pets as family. Thank you again, for everything. Dana


Our older cat Bernice [at least 15 years when rescued by Joy in the dead of winter in Kansas City at a young age of 1 to 2 years old] has cancer of the intestines. She has been given palliative care Dr. Chris Cornelius with Last Wishes In-Home Pet Hospice and Euthanasia . The last few days her quality of live is at the end stage. We are putting her to sleep today at 5 pm... We were told she would not last a week or so with her blockage and was not a candidate for surgery by another vet.. Joy was not ready to let go so I contacted Dr. Cornelius.... with her help we have given my wife almost 5 months with her little girl... she is such a small cat with such a big voice she is such a Princess... She will be missed... If you have a pet and the end is near do your self and your friend a favor and contact Last wishes.. I am not saying that she can give your pet extra life... but she can make your pet's life and your's easier in their end days... And the Dr. will come to you.. so much better that a cold stainless steel table and loud noises that go with a trip to the vet.... Richard G.  


My wife and I cannot thank Dr. Christie Cornelius enough for the skill and care with which she handled our family's tough decisions. We had to say goodbye to our dearest Pixie a week ago tonight. She was an extraordinary creature that God let us have for a season. "A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal,..." Proverbs 12:10 And oh how we regarded her life, the little girl with the green eye   Don & JoyLou G.

Dr. Cornelius. Your support yesterday morning when my beloved Saylor walked on across the Rainbow Bridge means more that I can begin to say. There aren't words to tell you how much your assistance means and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  


Yesterday I said goodbye to my best friend, my road dog, my grumpy old man, Bubba. 13 years he stood by my side, but unfortunately his body just couldn't take it anymore. Dr Cornelius came to our home, and in this type of situation I could not have asked for anyone better than her. He was surrounded by love and compassion during his last breath. I am still heart broken, but wanted to thank Last Wishes In-Home Pet Hospice and Euthanasia for making this process easier for both him and I.   


Dear Dr. Cornelius: Words simply cannot express how much we appreciated your service today. Although it's been a very sad day for both Mike and me, you made the process extremely serene and peaceful for our beloved Scout. My biggest fear is that we would have to euthanize her and have her terrified going to the vet's office. I just couldn't live with that being her last feeling and thought on this earth. Your kindness and compassion meant the world to us today. Thank you so much for treating Scout with such incredible dignity and sincere care. There is definitely a place for you in Heaven! Mike and I would consider it an honor if you would use this as a testimonial on your website. Bless you and thanks again!

Dr Cornelius, We want to thank you for coming to our home last Wednesday the 5th to assist Chloe on her journey. It's been a rough week of grieving, we miss her more than words can express. We got her ashes yesterday and somehow now the energy balance has been restored at home and I feel as if I can function better. When I say you carried us through this experience, I mean it. I very much appreciate you reading the prayer my friend wrote for Chloe and taking so much time with us. You made this a very sacred experience that we will treasure. I'm grateful Chloe got to go while laying on my lap on her favorite sofa while we stroked her. I thank you for the lock of her fur from over her heart and for the paw print. I especially thank you for wrapping her in the beautiful blanket and allowing me to carry her to your car. YOU are an Angel of Comfort that walks among us disguised as a human. We will never forget you or the gift you gave Chloe to end her deterioration with dignity, respect and compassion. With all my heart, Thank You, and May God Bless You Always
