Veterinarian's Biography

Dr. Charles Jameson

Born and raised in west Texas, growing up we had dogs, cats, chickens & pigeons. While attending high school, I was a member of the Future Farmers of America (FFA), where I also raised sheep & turkeys. I can remember that whenever one of our pets became sick, I tried to do anything I could to help them and often cried when I felt as though I didn’t do enough. It was around the age of 12 that I decided that when I grow up, I would like to be a Veterinarian.

A defining moment for me, which related to end-of-life care for animals, was as a small child when my dog Spot developed terminal kidney failure. Watching his health deteriorate so quickly, I remember wishing that there was a way help ease his pain and suffering and make his passing over less stressful. Fortunately for pets today though, there are more end-of-life care options available when they become terminally ill. As a practicing doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM) whom graduated from Texas A&M, I have worked with various farm animals, equines, dogs, cats, and a number of exotic pets and have found that the majority of pet owners want the best for their pet and will do everything possible to help them when they become ill. I am fortunate to be able to work with these pet owners and their precious pets. I also have enjoyed providing Low Cost Vaccinations at locations throughout the Houston area for those in need.

For the past 15 years, my main focus has been emergency pet medicine. During that time, many owners have come to me for assistance with easing their pet’s pain and suffering and I feel honored that I have been able to help their pets pass over the golden rainbow.

Every time I perform euthanasia, I remember what it’s like to have a terminal pet and so I strive to make the transition as compassionate and stress-free as possible for both owner and their beloved pet. Helping an owner say goodbye to a pet that has been like a family member is a vital part of the human-animal bond. May all your pets be blessed with a long & healthy life and when the time comes to help them pass over, I will be here to help make it a peaceful and stress-free transition.

Growing up, I was fond of most creatures. I have had birds, mice, cats, and dogs. If there was a stray or sick animal - my heart would go out to it. Most of the cats and dogs I had were rescues. A defining moment in life for me was when I had a Leukemia positive calico cat named, Scarlette. I knew her years would be numbered. But, she was my special, sassy cat. I loved her special kitty massages. She got really sick and I remember trying all I could to help her. I was not ready to let go. She did not have a peaceful passing. I told myself after that I would never let a pet of mine get to that point. I would give them the gift of euthanasia. I can understand and relate how hard it is to see our furry babies suffer and know that it is never easy to make the decision.

Currently, I am pursuing a degree in Counseling. I know that with my background, experience, and education I can help pet parents with the guidance and compassionate ear to help make their final moments with their pets peaceful. I have such admiration and respect for Veterinarians. Their job is very challenging. But, it is so rewarding to help pet parents in their time of need. I see it as an honor to work beside Dr Charles and to go into people's homes as I feel the love for their baby and be that shoulder of support. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, the water, wine, gardening, nature and spending time with my cats. I dedicate my work with Lap of Love to Scarlette and all our dear furry babies.
