Dr. Jackson was great. He was gentle and caring. He made sure we were comfortable the whole time.

Dr. Jackson was truly unbelievable. We have never had to do anything like this before and will never do it any other way again. The peace he brought our boy Gretzky, and his ability to comfort my wife and I was truly amazing. We can't thank him enough.

My cat Gypsy wandered into our lives and hearts 12 years ago. She was moody and bossy at times but knew how to always make us feel better when we were having a bad day. Her favorite spot was anywhere I was, whether it be my lap or beside me on my desk while I work. CodaPet made my decision to put Gypsy at rest a little easier. It was simple to set up and Dr. Glenn Jackson was very kind, sincere and thoughtful during the whole process. I would recommend this service to anyone who has to make the decision to say goodbye to their beloved furry family member.

Recently, I had to put my daughter's dear duck (Omelet) down. My daughter was abroad, and I had never put an animal down before. Omelet was the last surviving duck of our flock of four. She was 12 years old - a deeply loved pet, who returned our love each and every day. This was very difficult for me. Dr. Glenn Jackson came to my house, and I am so glad that I found him on this website. I cannot imagine anyone being more compassionate, kind and caring. I shared some stories about Omelet, which he clearly enjoyed hearing, before he gently explained the process. Omelet seemed to know what was coming, and she was remarkably calm and ready. I held her the whole time with Yo-o Ma's "The Swan" softly playing in the background (which she loved). Dr. Jackson even hit "play" on the music for me while I was holding her. He described each step so clearly in advance, and with such gentle reassurance. Omelet never once displayed fear, never tried to squirm out of my arms, and never cried out. She just gently passed away in my arms. I cannot imagine a more beautiful and meaningful experience. I will always be eternally grateful to Dr. Jackson.
