Kristina Kalivoda, DVM

"Although our cat Luna was 18 and had been diagnosed with kidney disease, we weren't expecting to be in this situation so soon or so quickly. We found her lying on the floor in the morning, breathing but totally unresponsive to anything. We agonized over what to do; we dreaded the thought of having to take her to her regular vet's office, knowing it would be incredibly stressful to her and us. But we knew it was time, so I contacted Lap of Love. Dr. Juliana got back to me quickly, explained everything to me and gave me a one-hour window. Dr. Kristina was there on time (certainly this isn't a situation where you can deal with someone ..."

Loren Gassler, DVM

"While this would not be the first service I ever thought to recommend, Dr Loren and LAP OF LOVE were more compassionate and loving than any human Doctor I've personally met. She made what is a very difficult time as painless as I could ever hope. God bless you and the work you all do.

Dawnetta Woodruff, DVM

"Dr. Woodruff was very professional and polite. I am grateful that she was the veterinarian who assisted Sox and I. I could tell she knew what she was doing, and I can also tell she has had experience explaining through this most heart-wrenching process with people. She treated Sox with the utmost respect from beginning until she left with him at the end. Sox is at peace."

Sandra Simko, DVM

"One of the hardest things as a 'pet parent' is to know when it's time to make that most difficult of calls. I am SO glad we were fortunate enough to find Dr. Simko. From the minute she first approached Mickey and spoke to him so kindly and sincerely, I knew we were in good hands. She was so very patient, explaining everything and giving us plenty of time for each step. You can genuinely feel the love and compassion she has for pets and for the people who own them. Mickey was calm and relaxed and never had a moment's fear or distress. Even though he was a big boy, she managed his body with respect and loving care. It's ..."

Heather Manfredi, DVM

"Dear Heather and Lap of Love Veterinarians,

Recently my family unfortunately had to make the difficult dreaded decision to put down two dogs in our family. One of them being an 11 year old pit bull named Cypress in Oakdale NY (my mother in law's dog) and a 17 year mini Schnauzer named Zoe in Patchogue NY (my mother's dog). Our family had heard of visiting vets but were never savvy to the type of services that your vets provided. In a quick google search for home vets in a panic because we knew the time was drawing near for Cypress I found your company. Our first experience was last month with Cypress's passing and then again ..."

Betsy King, DVM

"We had to say goodbye to our beloved ~15 year old dog on May 23, 2017. This decision and process was one of the most emotional and painful we have gone through. Dr. King was truly a gift. She was so unbelievably kind, professional, and respectful of us and our dog during the whole process. We were given as much time and information about what to expect in order to help us feel comfortable. The opportunity to have a paw print was an unexpected gift as well. Thanks Dr. King for making our final moments with our dog truly peaceful, we will forever remember that you personally tranformed this difficult experience into a beautiful ..."

“Bear-bear, from the moment I brought him home, let me know that he was very special. For one, he preferred to be inside with air conditioning. He liked to lay in the sun on cool days and in front of the glass door , in the AC on hot days. On the days that I didn't feel good, he never left my side. He intuited things way before I realized. For ...

“The best friend. He greeted me at the door everyday. He sat on my lap nearly every time I sat down. He gave me kisses and head-butts every time I tried to read in bed. There was no way to study or pick up a book in my apartment when he was around. Sox demanded, and I was happy to give him all of my attention. He was a very simple cat in that he ...

“This little girl. This darling one right here. My little Macy Rae "slipped the surly bonds of earth... and touched the face of God" yesterday. My heart hurts as I'm a mama to none now. The house is too quiet. There isn't the pitter patter of tiny ballerina feet. Take good care of her, Boo. You'll both be missed. #TinyDancer Count the headlights on ...
