Aspen Perretta, DVM

"Dr. Aspen was professional, soft spoken, and caring. I couldn't have asked for a better veterinarian during this time. The whole process with Lap of Love was easy and we will use it again for our other animals at their time of need."

Carley McDowell
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Sally Lynch, DVM

"Dr. Sally, to say that i am grateful is an understatement. You made Rox's passing so beautiful and peaceful. He went without fear and you reassured me I was doing the right thing for my wee mucks. I will be forever grateful."

Shauna Toye
Brighton, Massachusetts

Jessica Boden, DVM

"Dr. Jessica was absolutely excellent at the difficult time of having to put our beloved Dickens to rest. Her empathy is so genuine. Her manner was perfect for the occasion.

This was our second use of their services this year and we will not hesitate to call them again when that time of need arrives (hopefully not soon).

To be able to avoid the stress of getting Dickens out of the house; to have him at home in a familiar, comfortable environment, was of utmost importance to us.

Lap of Love is perfect for this, and Dr. Jessica is perfect at making the family comfortable.

Thank you!

Rick and Carla"

Jordy Merrifield, DVM

"Saying goodbye to Tulip was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Dr. Jordy was so compassionate and loving and made our experience the best it could be under the difficult circumstances. I can't thank her enough for putting my mind & heart at ease. I will miss my Tulip forever."

Justin Aldecoa
Phoenix, Arizona

Brad Bates, VMD

"I wish we had known about the geriatric consultation limb of Lap of Love a long time ago. Our darling Sam, a 13 1/2 year old yellow lab, could have had months or even years that were better quality, but I guess that is water under the bridge. We did call Lap of Love for a palliative care consultation, and even in that one hour meeting a week ago, Dr. Brad came up with a dozen suggestions, both medical and otherwise, to make her days go more easily. He met us half way in our own capacity to accommodate her escalating needs, for example in a discussion about whether or not to use a cart if she became paralyzed or completely unable ..."

Jo Buyske
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Stephanie Henderson, DVM

"Dr. Stephanie was kind and compassionate and showed great care for my Mimi-cat. Despite the circumstance, Dr. Stephanie helped the experience to be peaceful and meaningful and I consider it a blessing to have had Mimi's last moments at home surrounded by people who love her."

“Sunday was the day I’ve dreaded for a few years now. Harley Bettis has been in pain for quite sometime and was diagnosed with cancer right before Thanksgiving and it had already metastasized to her lungs. She went to the vet on Friday because she was so sick Thursday night and they told us it was time to make a decision. We decided to end her ...

“Apollo, you were the best cat Adam and I could have asked for. You gave us joy and laughter as well as comfort. We will miss your constant cuddles and roar-like meow. We miss you coming to greet us at the door when we get home and sleeping in between us. We miss your head butts and bunny hop. You will always be the bar for which all cats are ...

“Snoopy - I miss you so much. Every time I swallow or inhale I feel my body desperately trying to wrap around and fill the emptiness I now feel inside me. You were the light in my life - literally! Everything from your abnormally white coat that never quite fully goldened, or your loud bark or constantly wagging tail was a constant reminder of all ...

“Rox was my best friend I loved that dog more than everything. The joy I felt every time I came home to see how excited he got even if I was just gone for 5 minutes. I would bring him everywhere with me. There is a hole in my heart now where all my love was. I know in time it will heal but I will never forget his wee face and his unconditional ...
