Toby Goldman, DVM
"Paola was very sweet on the phone when I had to make the heartbreaking call. Dr. Toby arrived and was very kind and loving through the entire process. He explained everything and my sweet boy was in no pain at all. It was of great comfort to have someone that had genuine compassion and clearly loved doing what he could to comfort us. He did not rush anything, and took our cues as to when. He even emailed me a personal message the next day. I truly believe he cares about the animals as well as their human family. He made a very difficult time the best it could be."

"Dr. Nora, you and all the rest of the doctors at Lap of Love hold a very special place in my heart and I thank you for making such a scary and disheartening time as peaceful and comfortable as it could be. You all make the joy of having a pet memorable until the very end and it takes a very special person to do that. Thank you!!"

"Paw Prints On My Heart
I knew the house would be quiet when it was your time to leave.
But the silence is so deafening as I think about you and grieve.
Your bed is empty every time I look over as expect to see you face.
Instead I see your toys in what used to be your place.
Lately I’ve been wanting to curl up and lay your bed, to get some sort of comfort, but I just cry instead.
Today I was reminded of our trip to Dairy Queen.
As I got in my car, I found your nail in my sun visor seam.
Also something else tonight, that made me take a look.
I felt and found a single strand of your fur in my foot.
I no longer ..."

Elyse Persico, DVM
"Dr. Elyse was extraordinary.
When she entered our home she brought with her a sense of calm and genuine caring. My husband and I felt so guilty about making the decision to end Daisy's life but Dr. Elyse helped us to realize that, at 16 plus years old, Daisy was holding on for us and was suffering physically, even with pain medication.
Dr. Elyse took the time to get to know us and Daisy. She cried with us, mourned with us, and reminisced with us. It was the most dignified and respectful way to allow Daisy to earn her angel wings. I recommend Dr. Elyse highly, especially if your pet is considered a family member."
Kristine Campanelli, DVM
"I cannot say enough about Dr. Kristine; she made a very difficult day easier for us and for our beloved Holly. Dr. Kristine came to our home and took time to be with Holly (petting & talking to her...becoming a friend), she answered any questions we had and did not rush us through the process of saying goodbye to Holly. Lap of Love’s staff are wonderful people - from talking with them on the phone, to the compassionate email that followed - never once did I feel like I made this appointment & was left to hang - Lap of Love knows the difficult decision and heartache you are going through. Having Holly's final moments in her home, ..."

Kim Slade, DVM
"When the time came for our 16 year old pup, we weren't exactly sure what to do. Dr. Kim made a very difficult time in our lives as painless as it could possibly be. She was incredibly nice, caring, understanding and compassionate. She walked us through everything slowly and answered all questions. From the moment she walked through the door we could tell that she cared about Quinley just as much as we did. We don't have words to express how truly thankful we are."
