Our little Riley finally gave up her last fight with a heart tumor. She had been to the vet so many times. It was a comfort to allow her to stay at home with her family for her last moments. I had prayed that Riley would just go peacefully in her sleep one night and this was close. Maybe better since we were holding her and loving her as she passed. Dr. McReynolds has a wonderful comforting and calm manner and made it so much easier than if we had to carry Riley to the vet. Dr. McReynolds came to our house, Riley was already laying in my lap and she never had to move. She gently went to sleep being loved and petted in her own house. At the right time, Dr. McReynolds gently wrapped Riley up and took her to Paws & Whiskers pet crematory in Decatur for us. It was a real blessing to have her help during this very difficult time. I wouldn't have wanted Riley to have to go to the vet for this and it would have been harder for us if we had been in the vet exam room and then had to leave and come home afterwards.
