Dr. Karen Whala

Dr. Karen Whala

(220) reviews


Dr. Karen Whala has always had a soft spot for the older pets she’s treated in practice and saw a need for these beloved pets to pass peacefully at home rather than in a clinic setting. To that end, she started Peaceful Passing in 2018 to help families assist their terminally ill, injured, or suffering pets as they transitioned from life in the Fresno and Clovis areas. She finds that pets are so much more relaxed and peaceful when they pass at home, and it is truly a gift owners give their furry friends. Dr. Whala grew up in the Eastern foothills of Fresno County in the small towns of Dunlap and Miramonte. She obtained her Bachelors of Science degree in Animal Science and Management at UC Davis. During her youth, she operated a children’s petting zoo and traveled to schools, birthday parties, and library functions educating children on animal care. Her animals included everything from iguanas and ducklings to lambs and frogs, and it was during these formative pet-owning years that she decided to become a veterinarian. In 2006, Dr. Whala graduated with her veterinary degree from UC Davis. She began practicing at a local area mixed animal practice and worked with dairy cattle, horses, dogs, and cats and later transitioned to small animals exclusively. She took a few years break from private practice, during which she earned a Masters in Public Health and Board Certification in Veterinary Preventive Medicine. When Dr. Whala returned to private practice, it was to start Peaceful Passing. Dr. Whala lives in Fresno and keeps busy working at a local clinic part-time, helping families assist in the peaceful passing of their pets, volunteering with Pathfinders (a boys and girls club), backpacking, and hosting friends in her home. ‍

Dr. Orth developed a love of animals and science at a young age and knew that veterinary medicine was the perfect career choice. She obtained her bachelor's degree at the University of California, Davis. While there, she stayed busy volunteering at local veterinary clinics, working with a parrot outreach group, and participating in research at a feline nutrition center. During this time, she also enjoyed tutoring undergraduate students and substitute teaching for K-12. After some post-graduate education, Washington State became her home, and she soon obtained her Veterinary degree from Washington State University. She has worked in Fresno since graduation in both a day practice and an emergency setting. While she loved healthy puppy, kitten, and even reptile visits, she soon realized that sometimes a vet's job also necessitates relieving suffering and helping pets to pass peacefully. To be able to further experience and support the bond between humans and their pets has been an honor that she is truly grateful for. Dr. Orth believes that euthanasia in our pet’s homes is a peaceful, loving, and more comfortable way to help them pass, surrounded by the people they love. Family is so important and our pets make up such a special role in our lives. Her husband and she have 3 children, and a household full of fuzzies, fins, fangs, and feathers. In her free time, she enjoys reading, jogging, and catching up on great television series.

Losing a pet is always heartbreaking. We were devastated when it came time for our 15 1/2 year old rhodesian to go but Dr Karen helped ease us through the process. She was caring, patient and compassionate. What a blessing to be able to do this in the comfort of our own home with our other dog there too. Dr Karen continued her grace when returning his ashes back to us in a beautiful wooden box engraved with his name. Highly recommend!
