At Peaceful Paws Mobile Hospice, LLC, we are here to help your terminally ill pet or beloved larger animal reach the end of his/her lifespan with compassion and dignity. Our goal is to minimize pain and stress, and maximize quality of life in these animals until a natural death, or until the time of euthanasia.
Hospice and euthanasia services are provided by Dr. Christina Leone, DVM, PhD. Dr. Leone grew up in Morris County, in an animal-loving family that still raises and shows wirehaired dachshunds. She founded Oakwood Animal Hospital, PC, in Oakwood, Georgia in 1995, and grew it into a thriving multi-doctor small animal hospital. After assisting her patients and their owners for many years, she observed how difficult it was for the pets and their families at the end of their lives. She moved back to New Jersey to be closer to her family and started Peaceful Paws to address the needs of seriously ill pets and end-of-life care for them in their own homes.
In April of 2017, Dr. Leone also started practicing at Locktown Veterinary Services in Flemington, NJ (www.locktownvet.com). This was formerly the practice of William A. Reynolds, who has retired. Although she is there Monday through Friday and every other Saturday, she still has time for a few housecall euthanasia services.
If you have any comments or questions, please contact Dr. Leone at (908) 345-9880. Leave a message and Dr. Leone will respond. Please note that calls are not answered immediately. If you have an urgent situation and have not heard from Dr. Leone within 1 hour, please seek care at your local emergency veterinary facility. Most calls are answered within 24 hours.
