A Little Bit About Me

Hello all, my name is Dr. Jerrod Killian and I’m a retired U.S. Army Veterinarian. I’ve always loved dogs including my Golden Retriever Jesse that traveled the world with me. Having to let Jesse go due to chronic illness truly crushed me. We buried her next to the cabin my wife, three sons and I built. I often visit her and look up at the stars knowing that she goes on. I included the word “Passages” because I believe the road doesn’t end for our pets and that love finds a way. Just like we honor Jesse, I will help you honor your loved one.

Our Testimonials


When do I know it’s time?

There’s usually not a perfect answer to this question. If your pet is clearly suffering from a debilitating disease such as severe arthritis, where the quality of life is poor, then the decision may be clearer. Often though, it’s an overall Quality of Life decision.

Why use a home euthanasia service?

Pets are more relaxed in their own homes, in the comfort of their own bed, surrounded by families they love. Compare this to the stress and fear often associated with a car ride and a busy veterinary clinic.

How to prepare for a gentle passage?

Feel free to feed a favorite meal (if they can still enjoy it). Select a place where you would prefer the euthanasia to take place. For example, we can perform the euthanasia on a favorite doggy bed.
