Nellie Wilbers, DVM

"Dr. Nellie Wilbers gave Luna the most calm, gentle and compassionate ending I have ever witnessed in all my years of saying goodbye to our beloved companions. I wish all veterinarians had her insight in to what a true euthanasia, humane death, should be like.

My hope is that she educates other veterinarians as well as vet students for years to come so that others, like me, don't have to wonder if we gave our pets the very best ending. on that final day."

Jessica Hudspeth, DVM

"Dr. Jessica was very compassionate and professional during the difficult process of having to let our girl go. She talked us through everything and was so gentle with our dog."

Nora Glaser, DVM

"This is the second time that we sought the services of Lap of Love, the first in 2015 when my Norwich needed help in leaving. Dr. Nora helped us with Pippin. She was sweet and gentle and took her cues from us. Providing in home euthanasia is the most gentle and humane way to allow the pet to let go. I was very impressed with Dr. Nora and I am very impressed with Lap of Love."

Jessica Sharpe, DVM

Judy Mershimer

Jessica Garcia, DVM

"Dr. Jessica - we cannot thank you enough for the kindness and compassion you showed our family. We are so grateful that Riley was able to make his journey to paradise with all of us by his side from the comfort of home. It was the hardest thing we ever had to do, but your patience and assurances helped us find peace. As soon as you met Riley, he kissed your hand...he recognized how special you are, and that you were there to bring him relief. Thank you for your gentle nature, and for your service to animals and their families. With gratitude - Shane, Jennifer, Jack, Bella, and Riley"

Jennifer Marshall
Boca Raton, Florida

Karen Gadberry, DVM

"I met Lap of Love through Dr. Julie, who I found to be such a compassionate person, that once we knew it was time for Oakley, I knew I wanted Lap of Love to help us. Dr. Karen came to our home, and was so gentle, compassionate and patient. She explained everything as she went along and gave us as much time as we needed to say goodbye to Oakley. As difficult as it was; she made us more comfortable along with Oakley with what was happening. I could not say enough about Dr. Julie and Dr. Karen and their staff. We will always be grateful."

“Priscilla was an adorable and gentle little pup. Her humans (us) and our other dogs and cats loved to cuddle with her because of how sweet she was. Watching her decline in health as she got older and seeing her in so much pain towards the end was heartbreaking. But now she's at peace, and she will be greatly missed by all of us.”

“My best friend and I had to say good bye last night. We both knew the time had come and that we each needed to let go. That didn’t make it easier to say good bye to the most beautiful, gentle creature that I have ever had the privilege of welcoming into my life. And she became a part of my life; she was my best friend, my constant companion, my ...
