Dawnetta Woodruff, DVM

"Words cannot express the gratitude that my family has for the services you provide. On July 22, 2017 our family made one of the hardest decisions we have yet to come across. We are a family of 9 with 5 of them being rescued furry family. My human children are 29 and 25 years old. My 2-oldest furry family members were 16 years old, Murphy, who was a chow-shepard mix and Kitty who was a ragdoll cat. Murphy was brought to my youngest son's cub scout car wash. He was just a pup and the owner stopped at our car wash and asked if anyone was interested, and home with us he went. Kitty was rescued from the Humane society on Macklind. His ..."

Erin Gorney, BVMS

"Dr. Erin came into our lives during one of the most difficult times and helped us walk through losing not one but two of our babies. She was always available to answer questions or just to check in on how they were doing as we navigated the various stages of their illnesses. Our debt to her for making the passing of both our boys so peaceful can never be repaid."

Nancy Rodriguez, DVM

"We were in the worst situation and then came Dr. Nancy like a true angel. Our sweet boy Train had been battling cancer for a couple months but was doing okay until he took a turn for the worst on Sunday and we watched him rapidly deteriorate. By Sunday evening it was clear to us he would not make it through the night. I hesitated to take him to the emergency vet, I wanted him to be with his regular vet who had treated him for so long and knew him. Finally Train's amazing rescue group (Bullseye Rescue out of Atlanta) told us to find someone who could come to us and thank God we found Dr. Nancy. Dr. Nancy came out late Sunday ..."

Samantha Souther, DVM

"I had never heard of Lap of Love until this past Friday when I called my vet about my poor Bogie. Because of his size, I was not sure how I was going to get him to the vet. The receptionist at Stoney Creek Vet Hospital mentioned Lap of Love. From the moment I placed the phone call and to speaking to Karen, I knew I was making the right decision. It was probably one of the hardest decision I had to make but I definitely know it was the right one. Dr. Sam came to the house and walked me through the entire process. She made me feel better and she showed so much care and compassion to our Bogie. My husband, daughter and son in ..."

Folcroft, Pennsylvania

Lisa Littlejohn, DVM

"I spoke with Dr. Littlejohn on the phone and she seemed very kind. But when she came into the house, looked at me, dropped her bags and came to me to hug me in a wonderful, strong bearhug, I knew for certain she was truly sincere and really did believe in what she was doing. I took my first deep breath in days, because i knew she was invested in helping our boy go home in a relaxed, non-fearful way, and validated our grief. She took her time with all of us, had us share our stories of Homie and memories of brighter days. Dr, Littlejohn is an amazing person and doctor. She truly cares and I think she is in the job she was born for, ..."

Samantha Souther, DVM

"The decision to let go of my Shemp was one of the most heartbreaking I've ever had to make. He had been been Dx with a large soft tissue sarcoma invading the bone at the back of his nasal cavity and into his throat only a week prior with only minor symptoms manifesting even a week and a half before that. It was ultimately determined that because of its location and how quickly/severely it had affected him (unable to eat and drink on his own) that any treatment would be palliative at best.

I knew I did not want to take him to a vets office and put him in more distress in and unfamiliar place and I was aware that there were vet ..."

“Bear was a big black fluffy ball of love and affection. He passed in May 2017 at the age of 12 under the loving guidance of our Lap of Love vet, Dr. Erin. Bear was one in a million, a best friend and a constant companion. He loved to sit on the porch with us and to have his chin scratched. He would sleep in bed every night right next to (or on) ...

He has been with me for 14 years 10 months, and for a small boy, he took up a lot of space. He would lick my ...

She was well loved in our family as well and often spent time visiting at Mommom and Poppa's house, or Aunt Brenda's. She had her own Facebook page and had a following of many friends ...
