Meet the Doctors

Let us introduce you to the amazing hospice veterinarians in your area. 

Janine Oliver, DVM

I became a veterinarian as a second career, but it is my first passion.  Although I was born and raised in Fairfax Virginia, I have considered North Carolina  my home since 1987, when i earned my Physical Therapy degree from East Carolina University.  I decided to return to school to earn my D.V.M. from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine because I am passionate about preventing animals from pain and suffering.  I am particularly interested in the physical challenges that many older and disabled pets face. Even though I enjoy seeing many different pets every day, I concentrate my practice in physical rehabilitation, pain management, veterinary nutrition, soft tissue surgery, stem cell therapy, and geriatrics.

After graduating from NCSU in 2008, I joined an alternative and general medicine small animal practice in Charlotte, North Carolina. I also worked part-time as a veterinary nutrition resident at North Carolina State University until 2011.  I use my physical therapy and veterinary nutrition skills to help my patients extend their quality of life for as long as possible.  When the day comes that an aging or ill pet can no longer rally and respond to therapeutic measures then I believe in making sure their last moments are spent with their loved ones in peace and comfort.

I am a member of the following professional organizations: AAHA, AVMA, IAAHPC, AAFP, NCVMA, AAVN, and IVAPM. I strongly believe in giving back to my community by working with these wonderful local charities, SPCA  of the Triad, Break The Chain Kennel Kru, and People & Paws 4 Hope.
My wife, Audra, and I share our home in Greensboro NC with our two cats Ellen and Barney and our four dogs Piedmont, Tyrion, Bunny and Krypto.  We also have two amazing adult sons, Billy and Patrick who live and work near by. I feel so very fortunate to be part of an animal loving family and lucky to be able to work with animals and the people who love them every day.

"Dr. Janine Oliver was as supportive and compassionate as she could be given what a sad day this was for our family. We were very lucky she was able to come to our home. Kenya left us peacefully."

True Campbell
Greensboro, North Carolina

"We are so grateful to Dr. Janine Oliver and her special care that day. She was so gentle, calm, and reassuring, giving us time to grieve and love our girl. Dr Janine truly had an understanding of our feelings, and heartbreak, and showed nothing but compassion. She made footprints for us, and gave us some locks of hair to keep. I'm beyond grateful for Lap of Love and Dr Oliver. We were able to be at home surrounded by our loved ones, and in the comfort of our home, just where Ivey felt best. Thank you."

Cheryl Stone
Randleman, North Carolina

"Dr. Janine was very kind and considerate. She took time to explain the process and give us time to cope with it all. She handled the entire ordeal with compassion."

Jaymi & Waylon Binkley
High Point, North Carolina

"Thank you Dr. Janine Oliver for your support and kindness through this difficult time."

Courtney Cooper
Rural Hall, North Carolina

"Thank you Dr. Janine Oliver for coming to our home today. She is professional, wonderful and calm. Our Amanda passed away peacefully. She brought us some peace of mind to our final goodbye to Amanda. Not only she left our cat's memorial keepsakes, she gave our daughters angels of cats to remind them of Amanda as well. Such a sweet thought of her! We appreciated all compassion of Lap of Love team, you all are angels of pet owners."

“Kenya was an amazing Labrador. He began each morning bringing in the newspaper. Mid day he held his own leash as we walked in the neighborhood, and in the evening, he nuzzled on the couch as we watched television. As I have often said, he is the easiest son we raised (including our three 'human' sons).
Kenya was cursed with lousy hips but ...

“My sweet girl Ivey LuLu has left us, and we are so very sad. She was the sweetest, most beautiful, smartest, gentle, loving soul I have ever met, and I'm very honored she chose us as her family. She is running pain free and happy, waiting until we arrive to meet her in heaven.”

“Buddy (aka Aussie), we will always love you and hold the most special place in our hearts for you. You taught us so much about life. How to love unconditionally and deeply, how to care for another creature, how to live fearlessly and in the present moment, how to enjoy life to the fullest. You were our protector and defender and we were yours. You ...
