"My husband, Mike and I, can not express enough gratitude to Dr. Peter for helping us through this difficult time. Our beloved fur baby Demi was our whole life and will sorely be missed. Demi was diagnosed with bladder cancer in November and continued to fight everyday till his last, February 24th, 2017. Dr. Peter and Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice made this extremely painful and heartbreaking situation a lot less stressful. His kindness and professionalism were unprecedented and we will definitely be recommending his services to anyone we know that is going through a similar situation. Thank you Dr. Peter for treating our fur baby ..."

"Dr. Tina was kind and compassionate.
My dog Julio was a 13 years old basset hound and was nearing the end. I thought about taking him to the veterinarian’s office; however, I wanted him to feel the most comfortable he could be on his last day. Through a friend I found Dr. Tina. What brought me to Dr. Tina, was the fact that I wanted Julio to be at home where he lives, and I wanted him to be as comfortable as he could be. I knew that the trip to the veterinarian’s office would have placed stress on him, and also the procedure would have stressed him as well.
When Dr. Tina arrived, she was warm and full of compassion. Julio ..."

"To say Dr. Bill was incredible during our ordeal is an understatement. His demeanor was calming and reassuring, especially since I was filled with doubt and inner turmoil over making the decision to end my dog's life. It was an incredibly peaceful process, with Scout even leaning against him as she fell into her deep sleep. It's as if she knew he was there to bring her peace. He brought me peace, as well, and for that I am forever grateful."

"My sweet greyhound Lacey loved everyone, loved to hug and be hugged. She lived to be 12 years and 8 months. Lacey developed a peripheral nerve disorder and arthritis that made it difficult to get up and sometimes made her stumble. We had yoga mats all over the house so she wouldn't slip. She had wonderful compensation skills, and if she stumbled knew to hop right away with both back legs off the ground to straighten herself out. Lacey was a beautiful example and inspiration because she kept going with an "it doesn't matter" attitude through her difficulties. She knew how much she was loved.
She was a serious cheese lover, begging ..."

"Tonight we had to do the hardest thing a pet owner has to do. We had to make the decision to put our 9 year old sweet Bella to rest. We opted for an at home vet to come evaluate Bella and do at home euthanasia if indicated. During a difficult night for Bella last Sunday, I started browsing for guidance online and that is when I found Lap of Love. Dr Erica arrived at our door tonight and gave us a priceless experience, to lay our sweet Girl to rest in the comfort of her own home surrounded by the humans that love her. Dr. Erica gave her sedation to relax her and let us take as long as we needed f to say goodbye before releasing her ..."

"Our dog Dunkin was a light in our lives. Robbie and I miss his snuggling, the tap of his nails on our hard wood floors, and the constant companionship. Even our cat notices the loss in our lives. He was a special little guy that will forever be in our hearts. Helping him move on was one of the toughest things I've ever gone through. But, his quality of life had diminished to a point where he was no longer able to cope with his circumstances. When Dr. Lauren arrived at our door, I broke down. Never meeting her before, I just needed that connection and she gave with open arms. I fully respect the work she does. I don't know how she ..."
