Thank you for your kind words!
It’s not quite been two days ago that we had to let our sweet girl Maggie go. It was a hard call to make Friday morning. I was nervous and trying not to cry when Manda picked up. She was calm and caring. I knew Maggie probably wouldn’t make it through the night let alone the weekend and I was hoping we could bring her peace that day. Manda was able to set an appointment with Dr. Lisa that afternoon. So, thank you Manda.
Dr. Lisa, it was a great pleasure meeting you and having you here with us and Maggie. You’re kind, caring and compassionate. We appreciate the time you took with Maggie and with us explaining the process and what would happen. We were so glad she was able to go peacefully at home with us.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We were able to get a same day appointment with Dr. Lisa to put down our beloved Siamese cat, Joey. She came at the end of the day and spent all the time we needed with him. She was very compassionate and kind with him and us. The little touches she provided helped us. It was so hard but she helped us get through the event. I would highly recommend Dr. Lisa.
..emotions are still raw. George was a special boy. Although he was to be the one rescued it ended up being a mutual rescue. See we had just lost our 2 dogs within a month of each other, and we were pretty depressed. George was a really happy dog. And that happiness was contagious. During the fire evacuation in 20 he fell a few times off the ramp getting into the truck and tire his ACL. It was repaired but he developed Larangeal paralysis. We knew it was difficult for him to get around and I know we should have done it sooner but George never complained and all he wanted to do was be by us. Which made it all the harder. When Lisa came that morning George was as alert as always. He laid on the floor with his head in my lap. He went out eating all the chocolate kisses he wanted and slowly drifted off to sleep snoring as he slept and finally crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. It’s never easy but Lisa was very understanding and we never felt rushed. God gives us all special talents but hers calming presence made all the difference that day.The paw print and the bubbles are special treasures we will always have for our remembrance of “George the Dog”. Oliver his little brother even sleeps in George’s d spot..So thank you Dr. Lisa you made all the difference that day with your calming presence.
Compassionate care at home when you need it.
Dr. Lisa Burnett and her team were wonderful. From the first contact, to her in home services, to the kind and thoughtful cards we received afterwards. It was a peaceful experience. Putting a furry family member down is never an easy decision, but Dr. Lisa was kind, gentle, compassionate and patient. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking such wonderful care of our Doogie boy.
Can’t recommend Western Skies enough. Made this difficult process as comfortable as it could possibly be. Very receptive and transparent with services and pricing. They seem to really care about the important work they do.
Western Skies helped me say goodbye to my 18- (or maybe 19-) year-old cat Riley. The home visit itself was as nice as an otherwise devastatingly sad occasion could be. And things before and after rounded everything out to be a wonderfully supportive experience. Dr. Burnett was so kind and professional at my home, and gave Riley and I as much time as we needed. As we waited for a sedative to take effect, she even allowed herself to tear up for a minute, showing how much she cares about her patients and the people who love them. When she took Riley’s body away, she gently swaddled him in a blanket and then placed him in a little basket. Even in death, she showed the utmost respect for Riley and I. I should also praise Manda, the Client Care Coordinator. As the initial point of contact with Western Skies, I’m sure she’s used to families that are distraught and indecisive (even I rescheduled my visit twice), but she was always sympathetic and accommodating. With the resources provided on the website, and others that I received afterwards, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I’m so thankful that Western Skies was able to help us, and I highly recommend them.
I dont really do reviews. But I had to with this place. I have never felt more care, love, and empathy as I had with them in the hardest of moments. Dr Lisa Burnett was so sweet and careing as we had to let my 8 year old cat go. And everything they do for you after your pet has past was way beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Thank you so much and I know Milo was will taken care of even after his passing. – Jessica B.
From the very first phone call to the drive away, the process of letting my little Boo go was handled with compassion, softness, and dignity.
Dr. Lisa is a compassionate, kind, caring soul. Having only met her in one of the worst moments of my life, I instantly felt comfortable with her. I had called on a the weekend for an urgent appointment as my little guy had deteriorated quickly and was suffering. My hope was to not have to put him in the car and have his last memories be filled with anxiety and stress since he had severe car anxiety. Western Skies were able to get us a same day appointment on Saturday. It should be noted that Amanda who answered my phone call is amazing as well. The soft tone, and patience she showed as I sobbed my way through her questions was so much appreciated.
Dr. Lisa took her time with us, she never rushed the process or made us feel like we were talking too long to say goodbye. She was incredibly comforting; taking time to talk to Boo and reassuring us along the way. She was very gentle with our other dog who was very curious and protective. I was able to hold my little guy while he left this physical world, comforting him and saying my goodbyes over and over; something I’ve never been able to do in an office setting.
While I would do anything to change the reason why I had to contact Western Skies, I’m comforted in knowing that he was able to pass at home and his passing was handled by an individual who cared and didn’t see us as just another set of patients to get through.
In writing this review, I hope it brings you comfort in making the decision when choosing Dr. Lisa and Western Skies. While I know there are no words that will ease the pain of having to make this hard decision I do believe that Dr. Lisa is the one you want by your side guiding you and your pet through this process.
We called Dr. Burnett several weeks ago when it became apparent that our lovely dog, Ruby, needed to be put down that day. (She had deteriorated very quickly.) Despite the weather being snowy and icy, Dr. Burnett came to our house. She was incredibly caring and gentle with our Ruby. She was so kind to my husband and me. She gave us time alone with Ruby so we could say our goodbyes before she administered the final dose. We had never met Dr. Burnett before yet she was amazingly sympathetic to us and our remaining dog, Riley. Afterwards, she sent us the most amazing sympathy card I have ever received–including after my parents died. Today, I received a card stating that she had donated to The Arbor Day Foundation in memory of Ruby. A tree is being planted in Superior National Forest in Ruby’s name. I would highly recommend Dr. Burnett for end of life services. It just doesn’t get any better than the services she provided to us. We’ll be forever grateful to her.
Dr. Lisa helped our sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Cooper, cross the rainbow bridge. She was professional and kind, and let us cuddle our boy for a while to say goodbye. She walked us through the process, gave us a hair clipping and paw print to remember him by, and even left the house for a bit when it was done so we could grieve together as a family. This was a very hard process, but her service and her kindness made it a lot easier. After a few days, we received a handwritten note and she even donated a tree in Cooper’s honor. We ended up purchasing a nice box and pendant to keep his ashes in after his aquamation and they were very well made and so nice to honor our little boy. We would definitely recommend.
It was difficult to make the call, but Manda answered the phone and was so kind and caring in setting up the appointment for our dear Kolbie. Dr. Lisa was so compassionate and patient. She never rushed anything. She took the time to explain the process and allowed us all the time we needed. Kolbie left us in a very peaceful and loving way. It made this very terrible day a little less terrible.
We couldn’t have asked for a more compassionate and respectful process. Truly an angel in disguise came and helped us on one of the most difficult days we have endured -during of our loss of sweet Bella! Thank you! The best decision we have made was choosing this business and vet.
Thank you Dr. Lisa for making time after hours for my sweet Bear. Your compassion and thoughtfulness made a tough time so much easier.
I will keep Lisa’s contact info with me forever because I will use her services again should the need arise.
Dr. Lisa Burnett was the kindest vet who helped us make such a difficult time as good as it could be. She helped our Buddy relax, and enjoy himself while he was passing over the rainbow bridge. Buddy had an aggressive lymphoma and we were lucky to have the time we had with him at the end. It became obvious that he was declining so much that it was cruel to keep him going. We were able to be with him, in his own back yard, he loved the chocolate kisses she had for him. She made his passing so peaceful, and we are forever grateful to her.
This is one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make, but the care and sympathy this team showed was unmatched. They helped make the process as painless and they could, and took every possible step to show they cared. I can not recommend them enough.
Dante was nearly 19 yrs old, and couldn’t get around much anymore. He was in the late stages of kidney failure, so we had to ease his pain.
Lisa came by and was so kind, unjudging and caring, even our younger 14 yr old cat, who NEVER comes out of hiding when strangers are around–walked right up to her and demanded a head scratching! I knew right away what a kind soul she had, and animals knew it too!
I held Dante on my lap at his end of life, (his favorite place to be) so I could give him some comfort and security. He passed gently without incident and we got a little footprint in clay from his paw, and two condolence cards in the mail–one stating a tree would be planted in his memory from the Arbor Foundation that she donates too.
Very touching, respectful and efficient way of helping your loved pet cross the rainbow bridge!
Dr Lisa Burnett was such a blessing for us. Willow was so Loving and tender hearted. I was so worried that Willow’s last memory would be of her feeling the stinging pain of the medication. I worried for nothing. I’m forever grateful for Dr Burnett’s compassion and expertise, but most of all, I’m grateful for Dr Burnett’s beautiful GIFT of easing my beloved 15 year old Beagle, “Willow Pillow”, onto her next journey. I would recommend Dr Burnett to anyone having to make this difficult decision. If I could, I’d give her a ten star rating!
If the kindest lived the longest, Willow would have outlived us all:)
1-31: Dr. Lisa is an extremely caring person that provided the most supportive care for us and our Olive on such a terrible day. Olive failed quicker than expected, but Dr. Lisa changed her schedule and accommodated us to ensure Olive could pass in the right environment, and at the right time. This made one of the worst days, a little easier on us, because we knew Olive was passing the way she would have wanted. We cannot thank Dr. Lisa enough and highly recommend her. She’s an incredible person!!
Dr Lisa Burnett performed our in home euthanasia with extreme compassion, dignity, and knowledge. We have been through numerous situations with previous pets and it’s one of the hardest yet kindest things we can offer our loved ones. Violet passed gently and peacefully. Thank you Dr Lisa.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our babies comfortable on their journey home💕 We can clearly see this is your calling and you my dear are truly a blessing!
Thank you very much for your caring and compassion!
Dr. Lisa arrived and was so warm, gentle, and welcoming. She took her time to explain the process to us, introduce herself to our mastiff, and ask what we needed. We didn’t feel rushed through the process, and she was so supportive. She cried along with us when our boy finally let go. When she wrapped him in a soft fleece blanket before she took him away, I knew that he was in the best hands possible. The entire experience was so difficult and painful, and it was really a balm to our souls to have Dr. Lisa there to help us let go. Five stars are not enough to encompass how wonderful Western Skies is.
Dr. Lisa is wonderful. We have used her twice now to help our fur babies cross the rainbow bridge. It’s never easy, but we felt comfort we were able to keep our babies at home with Dr. Lisa’s help. Dr. Lisa is very kind and genuinely cares. I highly recommend her service during such a difficult time.
She was an absolute angel and answer to prayers. Our 14 1/2 year old Blake woke up with seizures, and it continued all morning. We made the VERY hard decision that it was his time. After exhausting all other Vets that couldn’t care less about our sweet boy Blake and simply couldn’t fit him in their schedule, we found her. Right after we spoke with her, she was at our home in less than 40 minutes and was so nice, gentle and compassionate. She assisted him to heaven and I will always be grateful to her. Thank you so so much, our Blake is no longer suffering.
My family and I are so grateful for the experience Dr. Burnett provided during such a difficult time.
Her love, compassion, and professionalism toward us will never be forgotten and I will always recommend her services to anyone seeking this option.
From the bottom of all our hearts, thank you Dr. Burnett.
I highly recommend Western Skies
Dr. Burnett came to our home to help our sweet little doggie pass. She was so compassionate and loving, it really made the whole bad situation much better. I highly recommend Dr. Burnett and Western Skies. Thank you for all you did for us!! 🐾❤️
