ABOUT OUR VETERINARIANS
Caring Pathway's team of veterinarians have over 80 years of experience caring for animals. We have listened closely to the concerns expressed by clients, family and friends, and understand the close, loving bond between owner and their pet. Having also experienced the loss of our own beloved pets, we have chosen to direct our practice focus solely to the in-home, end of life care for your pet.
We have found there is a Caring Pathway for the journey

Mercedes "Sadie" Maybach, DVM
While growing up in Minnesota Dr. Sadie Maybach was homeschooled with her seven brothers and sisters, and discovered the joy of investigating the world through science at an early age.
Before settling into veterinary medicine, Dr. Sadie tested the limits of a number of different vocations ranging from being a nanny and working at a monastery in Europe, to landscaping and hay farming in Colorado.
In 2000, she moved to Colorado and attended Colorado State University where she earned a degree in History followed by her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. Since then Dr. Sadie has worked in rural Colorado and Wyoming and been involved in several projects in developing countries. Whether serving patients in an Indian village or in a Denver bungalow, she recognizes the considerable advantage of providing animals care in their home setting, particularly at the end of life.
While not working, she visits her vast family, travels, runs, gardens, hikes, dances, and cooks-sometimes all at the same time.
