Brad Bates, VMD

"Our Girl, Isabelle was a 12.5 year old GSD/Pit mix who I rescued when she was around 8 weeks old from our local shelter. She slowed down slightly in the last year but seemed to deteriorate quickly in 2 weeks which is when I noticed some new lumps, one that was quite large on her neck and was drastically impeding her ability to breath, eat or drink. The following day our worst fears were confirmed, Lymphoma. We knew that we didn't want her to suffer but wanted to do everything we could to allow her to pass comfortably at home. Luckily for us, the steroid worked to shrink the mass and temporarily restore her quality of life. ..."

Kristina Kalivoda, DVM

"This was the first time I opted to have home euthanasia (it was not available for my first two kitties). If there was such a thing as a beautiful passing, Lap of Love made that possible for my Baby. Dr. Kristina came by for an initial consultation about a month prior to his passing, as I was finding it increasingly difficult to be objective about Denali's condition. She correctly assessed that it was not his time yet. A month later, his condition declined rapidly, and she gave me her guidance and wisdom and compassion - all of which made his passing less stressful for all involved, especially Denali. He was a brave boy to the ..."

Melanie Santspree, DVM

Thank you Dr. Melanie for your gentle guidance of Chloe’s journey over the Rainbow Bridge. ❤️ Joe. Val and Eli"

Heather Manfredi, DVM

"Our family could never express enough gratitude to Lap of Love. Our Digs was 15 and had an amazing life with a lot of bumps in the road. He was our first fur baby and such an incredible little guy. Our children grew up with him and loved him to pieces. I think in the last month of his life we knew that we were just not making a decision to give him peace for our own selfish reasons. When we sat down as a family and realized what was best for Digs, we made the dreaded call. As soon as we spoke on the phone I was hysterical thinking of what the next few hours would bring to our family. I was immediately calmed down by the woman on ..."

Keri Morgan, DVM, MPH

"This was our second time using Lap of Love. It is the most amazing service to offer to come to the home. It was peaceful and the anxiety level is very low for both animal and family. It is a sweet soft entrance into Heaven. Of course you cry and are sad but you are in your own space. The dignity she had when she took care of Bear was beautiful. I can’t thank her enough."

“Our precious girl Geisha gave us so much love and companionship. For 12 years her four legged paws followed me, stood on my feet and leaned into me with all her trust and weight. I was a true pleasure to have taken care of her. She camped with us, hiked and mt. biked, her athletic ability amazed us.

“We only had him a short time. A little over a year but we fell head over heels for him and loved him so. I think I kissed him and hugged him enough to last him until I see him again.”

“Tonight I said farewell to Denali (aka Baby) my faithful friend,
whose body has perished but for whom my love for will never end,
You were strong and brave every one of your 19 years,
And fought the good fight never showing your fears.
you gave me infinite joy and comfort and love,
and now it's time for you to rest over the rainbow bridge in ...

I don't even know where to begin. I could use any number of adjectives to describe just how amazing you were - loving, snuggly, spunky, social, adorable, curious, friendly - I could go on and on. You were such a people dog, you loved everyone you met. Even in your older age when you had lost your sight you still greeted everyone so ...
