Beth Meadow, DVM
"As painful as Thursday was for us, I have to give the highest praise to the folks at Lap of Love Veterinarians in Fairfax. Dr. Beth Meadow came to our house to help Ellie through her transition, and she could not have been more caring, respectful, and sympathetic. She treated Ellie like a good friend, and was so gentle in everything she did. After the doctor left, we found that she had left behind for us a plaster cast of Ellie’s paw, and a small clear container with a bit of Ellie’s fur in it from where she had to shave a small patch on her leg. Ellie’s passing was very peaceful, and, as strange as it may sound, also beautiful."
Erin Deveau, DVM
"Dr. Erin was wonderful. Paako was a member of our family for nearly 13 years. We couldn't bare the thought of losing him, even though his physical condition had deteriorated to the point that he could hardly move around. Dr. Erin immediately made us feel comfortable with our decion-making process. She was knowledgeable, compassionate and patient. She made our final moments with Paako manageable. We highly recommend Lapoflove to anyone faced with losing a furry friend. Thank you Dr. Erin."

"We cannot say thank you enough to Dr. Jordan for his compassion, caring and professionalism during our good bye to Pebbles. He was sympathetic, reassuring and offered comfort to make a most difficult time more peaceful and serene."
Jo Parr, VMD
"Dr. Jo was very patient and had a calm presence. She explained every step and did a physical examination and quality of life inquiry. We also appreciated how she was dressed down not in a white lab coat just down to earth feeling."
Amanda Page, DVM
"Lap of Love was recommended to us by our vet and friend when she could not come herself. Dr. Amanda came to our home when we suffered the decision to say goodbye to our beloved Sadie. She treated this incredibly difficult time with care and compassionate for me and my husband as well as Sadie. Sadie left us quietly and peacefully which is what we wanted for this treasured family member. We can't thank Dr. Amanda enough for her compassion. 😇"
Amanda Page, DVM
"Dr. Amanda got to our home right on time. I had just taken our friend Sandy out for a final walk. When Amanda got there, Sandy took to her right away. It was easy to see that she has 'a way' with animals. We shared some stories and talked about her condition. (She was 14 and had arthritis.) She did not push one way or another and we decided to put her down.
I don't know what I was expecting as I had never had to do this before but I could not believe how peacefully she passed. Dr. Amanda was not rushed and made sure that I had recovered (as much as can be expected) before she left. I could not be happier that I made the decision ..."
