Dr Kathleen Cooney

Dr. Kathleen Cooney began her life in Michigan and quickly developed a love for her family’s pets. These included dogs, cats, guinea pigs, birds, and horses. In 1995, she began the educational journey that would lead to veterinary medicine.

Dr. Cooney graduated from the veterinary college at Colorado State University in the spring of 2004. That same spring, her family had to say goodbye to their 15-year-old yellow lab, McKenzie. McKenzie passed peacefully under the aspen tree in their front yard. From this experience, Dr. Cooney learned just how important it was for pets to be at home for the end of their lives.

Shortly after this experience, Dr. Cooney and her family relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan. There, she practiced internal medicine and surgery at a small progressive animal clinic. At this clinic, she began performing in-home services for families - particularly cancer patients.

After 2 years away, Dr. Cooney and her family decided it was time to return to beautiful Colorado. She started Home to Heaven in the fall of 2006 and has received an overwhelming welcome from the community and the veterinary profession.

She has learned a great deal since founding Home to Heaven, having now helped thousands of families. And she looks forward to helping the families of northern Colorado for many years to come.

In the spring of 2011, she completed writing her first ebook. It is about euthanasia techniques and is written as an aid for other veterinarians. In 2012, she completed writing the book Veterinary Euthanasia Techniques: A practical guide. Dr. Cooney has also just finished her work with the 2013 American Veterinary Medical Association's panel on euthanasia guidelines. She is currently the Vice President and conference coordinator for the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care (IAAHPC). She travels frequently to speak on her work and on the current advancements in end-of-life care. Dr. Cooney's Curriculum Vitae

In the fall of 2010, Dr. Cooney opened the first-ever pet euthanasia center in the United States. The center is located on her 35-acre farm in Loveland, Colorado and offers two comfort rooms for pet euthanasia. It is open year-round for families looking for an alternative to standard clinic or in-home euthanasia.

Dr. Cooney is honored to be doing what she does. She loves getting to know her clients, hearing their stories, and sharing in the beautiful experience of in-home pet hospice and euthanasia.
