Making the call to Happy Endings was so painful, but I knew our Maddie\'s time had come, with end-stage kidney failure. My call was received with such compassion, and the appointment for the following day was quickly set. Dr. Fixler and his assistant arrived as scheduled, with an advance call to let us know they were on their way. When they arrived, they entered our home very quietly so our dog was not disturbed.
Dr. Fixler gently petted Maddie and then set about the preparations. Our dog (who feared car rides, and vet visits, and strangers) gave no evidence of anxiety or stress throughout the procedure.
I can only say, thank goodness such practices as Dr. Fixler\'s exist. They made the unthinkable as gentle and respectful a process as can be imagined. We are completely grateful that our Maddie was able to pass on peacefully at home, without fear or stress. Thank you. LuAnne Hedblom

Dr. Fixler was so caring. It was important to us that Rufus was in a peaceful environment during this difficult time. It was a very peaceful time. Thank you so much. I would recommend this to anyone who has to go through this very difficult period. Mary Maestas

My husband Michael and I want to thank Dr. Fixler from the bottom of our hearts. On New Years Eve he came on short notice for our beloved dog Delta. He confirmed to us after examining her that there was no hope and that she had a brain tumor. I can't say enough or ever repay what peace he gave Delta and us. JC Collins
