Sootie

Dr. Cornelius, I want to thank you for being so gentle and caring with both Sootie and me. This was a very hard decision but when the time came for you to arrive it seemed to be overwhelming. You were so good at explaining to me how everything would go and then explaining again as each step happened. I knew this would be better at home and it was. I miss her but I know she is not sick anymore. Below is her picture in good health which is how I will remember her. Thank you again for helping me through her passing. Peggy M

Carly Simon

Last Wishes In-Home Pet Hospice and Euthanasia assisted me with one of the hardest decisions a pet parent can make...doing what is the most loving and humane act you can do for your furbaby. While your heart breaks during every minute of every day leading up to, during and after, Dr. Christie Cornelius was with us every step of the way. She has a loving spirit and cares deeply about each of the animals that come into her care. We were able to stay at home, Carly was comfortable and able to go in the safety and comfort of her own home. Dr. C, I have no words to express my gratitude and respect for the service you provide. It truly is a calling and one you fulfill with amazing compassion.

Sasha

Dear Dr. Cornelius, My husband Mike and I would like to thank you for the support and understanding you gave us during the very difficult time at the passing of our beloved pet Sasha. You understood that she was a member our our family and treated her and us with the utmost dignity and respect. You even took the time to include our other pets in the process and allowed us all the time we needed to say "goodbye" to our "faithful friend". You seemed to understand more than anyone else that our pets are our "four legged furry children". We thank you for your time, your kind words, and beautiful card and paw print wish we will keep and cherish always. I don't know what but if there is even anything we can do to help you please let us know. We also would like to thank the gentleman for the pet memorial service who also was very kind and understanding. We did not get his name and later on realized we had not offered him a token of appreciation. If you would be so kind as to let us know how we can forward a gratuity to him it would be appreciated. Thank you again for everything. You alone made the transition possible. May God Bless you and allow you to carry on the good work you do for many years to come. With Deepest Gratitude, Helen and Michael N., Missouri City, TX.

George

Thank you so much for your kindness and your love for animals. You made a terrible situation so much easier for us and our beloved George. I told you yesterday, and I truly mean it, there is a special place in Heaven for you. May you always be blessed. Wednesday C

Indy

I'm not really a tattoo kind of girl, but Indy was exceptionally special to me. This is the paw print that you helped me get the day he passed. It's on my right rib cage, he always sat on my right and was always touching me with that sweet paw. Shannon C.

Heidi

Dr. Cornelius: Words are hard to come by today – we know it will just take time for us to get used to not having our little girl with us. I wanted to share three of my favorite pictures of Heidi. What we want you to know is that you truly saved her (and us) – it was so peaceful and we thank you for helping her escape the pain. We could not imagine having to take her to the vet – although they loved her. To be able to have her at home – on her beanbag bed, with her family around her and to be able to gently go to sleep was what she deserved and what you allowed her to have. We were very blessed to have had her for almost 14-years – she was truly a ‘one of a kind’. So many friends and family have called us last night and today expressing how sorry they are and reiterating how much she was loved by everyone. Thank you again and we have already let everyone know about you (your website) and those out of Houston we gave them the www.petlossathome.com website. Take good care and sincerest regards ~ Gerry, Steve and Scott F ‘Heidi’s Family’

Hardy

Dr. Cornelius, this week you helped us say goodbye to our beautiful Hardy. Because of you, we were able to have our final moments in a peaceful, comfortable setting that allowed us to fully express our love and emotion without the additional stress of the vet's office. You have such a gentle, without being patronizing, approach and Steve and I can't thank you enough for your grace and support during this difficult time. I will do everything I can to make sure my friends and family know about your service. Thank you again, my friend. Steve and Dana W.

Auggie – Lisa M.

Thank you to Dr. C. your gentle assistance with my sweet Auggie is so appreciated. You made a bad day easier for us both. Thank you.

Ashley – Erin S.

How can we ever repay your kindness and compassion. You provide a service that only a heart of gold can offer. Our precious Ashley passed so quickly that we called you in panic terrified that he would suffer needlessly. May God grant you the strength to always take care of those who need you. God bless and thank you so very very much.

- Lisa M.
