Michael J. Fixler, DVM

Dr. Fixler is experienced in all aspects of general veterinary practice and internal medicine with a special interest in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. He completed his clinical training at the University of Pennsylvania and has completed externships in orthopedic surgery and oncology at Colorado State University. Since 2007, Dr. Fixler has worked as a Lead Doctor in two small animal practices in Scottsdale and founded Happy Endings In-Home Pet Euthanasia in 2011. He resides in North Scottsdale with his wife Alicia and 5 children (3 rottweilers, and 2 small humans -- Annie, Bacchus, Cerberus, Max, and Sam respectively).


Not all In-Home Euthanasia is the same

At Happy Endings In-Home Euthanasia, we perform euthanasia using the absolute most humane method available. Dr. Fixler has studied anesthetic protocols extensively to create the most peaceful and painless euthanasia experience. From the first phone call and throughout the entire process, Dr. Fixler, his wife Alicia and our tech, create the most comforting experience for their pet owners in this difficult time. It is for these reasons that Happy Endings In-Home Pet Euthanasia has become the most recommended service of its kind in the valley.


How We Began

The idea for Happy Endings In-Home Euthanasia came to me when I was a veterinary student and I had to put my beloved dog, Hades, to rest. He developed Osteosarcoma, an incurable form of cancer. After a long life of heroism, obedience, and unconditional love, he was euthanized on a cold treatment table because there was no other option available to me at the time.


Years later, it came time to euthanize Hansel, my beloved cat and friend, who at the age of 18 was stricken with kidney failure. End stage kidney failure is like being lost in the desert without water. I was not going to let him suffer.


I decided to perform his euthanasia at home -- he did not have to be forced into a cat carrier, his heart did not race at the sight of a hospital, he simply went to sleep on his bed as he always did. I decided that if I can do this for my own pets, why can't I do it for others?
