Paws

We had to make the decision to put our cat of 11 yrs to rest. Dr. Cornelius was amazing and very understanding and even walked us through the process with the other vets when we were working to determine what was wrong. She provided a great second opinion and even more thorough answers than the vet we took our baby to. I couldn't recommend her highly enough. Adam R

Dr. Hou and her assistant Jennifer from Last Wishes were like two angels sent from heaven to me and my pet who was terribly ill with incurable cancer. They were very experienced and knowledgeable, and with the utmost caring and gentleness, provided expert veterinarian services and advice. My pet and I couldn't have been in better hands. They turned a horribly painful time into an experience where I was able to provide a loving, gentle, kind death for my beloved pet. The death he wanted, peacefully, at home, in my arms.I feel incredibly lucky that they came into my life and can only wish that others may be as fortunate as I was to have their help and support.

Cookie

Thank you Dr. Spade and Joanna for easing the departure of my beautiful Cookie. The decision to let her go was one of hardest I've ever made. With no outward signs of pain and suffering, I worried that she wasn't ready. Seeing her at rest, in peace, I know now that it was the right time.  

Mira

Mira came into our lives a year and two months ago. I was driving into my in laws subdivision to assist my husband. His parents had moved into an assisted living facility in Conroe, and we'd had taken on the task of emptying out the home and either renting it or selling it. What's this? A large black dog walking towards my truck in the middle of the road. I stopped my truck and as I rolled down the window to say hi to this sad looking dog, she walked around to the side of the car. Her eyes met mine and I could hear, Please, help me! And that is how Mira, as I named her came into our lives. We weren't ready for another dog, as we had just lost our 16 year old dog with kidney failure recently. Buy Mira stayed and after her vet check up we learned that she too was in kidney failure. She was a quiet very well mannered dog who loved to shake and just be near people. Her mannerisms led us to believe that perhaps she had been a service dog in her earlier years. She was a good walking buddy for me, and quite a couch potato in spite of her 65 pound size. Yesterday Dr Cornelius with Last Wishes traveled an hour and a half from Houston to Cold Spring to assist Mira in crossing over. She had stopped eating almost two weeks ago, and after a week of trying to jump start her kidneys with IV fluids, it became apparent that we needed to bring her home to spend what time was left. That was Saturday morning. Dr. Cornelius and her assistant made the transition for Mira a very dignified and less stressful situation. We were in our own home and Mira on her bed that she had slept on since she had come to live with us. We will miss her dearly. Thank you Last Wishes for helping us during this difficult period! RIP my darling Mira.

Bogey

It's been a week ago today that our boy Bogey went to doggie heaven. He was in hospice for a short time and seemed to be getting worse day by day. He had lung cancer unfortunately . I want everyone to know how wonderful Last Wishes was for us! Dr Karen and Stacy ( I believe I was distraught ) came over and it was so awesome how they gave us the care, time alone with our boy, and compassion during this awful time in our lives. It was so comforting not like at a vet office on a cold table. I will certainly use them again if need be. They even made a paw print and gave us hair clippings. Loving touches that meant a lot to us . We miss our baby but know in our hearts he's running free! Thank you again!

Duke

Our big boy Duke was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma a fatal cancer, he had taken a turn for the worse but with pain med management he is doing so much better. Thanks to Last Wishes In-Home Pet Hospice and Euthanasia, they came out last Sunday and gave us some medical advice on Duke's meds that eased his comfort big time and we are enjoying some sweet days with him. We highly recommend their services!  

Ida

I cannot say enough about Dr. Cornelius and the entire crew at Last Wishes.  They truly understand pets and the special place they hold in our hearts.  I would not change one thing about our experience with them, and i find comfort in knowing that our sweet dog's last weeks and moments were calm, loving, and precious.  We were able to focus on our girl and our time with her.  Last Wishes has also helped quite a bit in the months after.  They recommended support groups and guided towards proper counseling for me and my children. After 1.5 years of chemo, our dog did not like going to the vet, but she looooooved Dr. Cornelius!  Every time she came to the house, Ida wanted to sit next to her and "help."  Because of this sweet relationship and comfortable environment, Ida was calm and happy until the end.  I really could go on and on.... so please do not hesitate to contact Last Wishes.
