Laura Porta, DVM

"Dr. Laura was amazing. I first made the call in July and to ask some questions about Lap of Love. She checked in with us from time to time via email. When she came to the door on December 8, she was so kind and caring. She talked to Chewy and the whole family. She petted him and told him what a handsome boy he was. She was gentle and didn't rush us and really listened to us talk about our gentle soul. If someone has to make the decision to let their pet go, I could not recommend more highly Lap of Love. Having our precious dog not be stressed by going to the vet office and having him here in our home, with his favorite blanket and ..."

Erica Fry, DVM

"Dr. Erica Fry was a kind, compassionate, and thorough professional. While some might blanch at the word professional, it does not mean that she was "clinical" in nature. She spoke softly, petted our boy, Argie, and listened to our stories about him. She was even willing to watch the last videos we had of him in his glory. When the time came for us to let go and relieve his pain, she did it on our terms. One of us could only stay through the first part of calming him down and letting him know everything was alright. During the second part, she monitored him and kept informing me of the stages he was experiencing. While it was ..."

Leslie Peltier, DVM

"We had the unfortunate experience of having to say goodbye to our kitty of 16 years this morning. Last night my husband asked if it were possible to have euthanasia performed at home and we are so thankful that we could. This morning, Dr. Leslie came to our home and provided the most amazing, supportive, and loving care for our beloved pet Oliver. She took excellent care of us and never rushed the process. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!"

Abigail Shearin, VMD, PhD

"Dr. Abby was very compassionate and caring. It made a heartbreaking event easier. She gave us all the time we needed to say our final goodbyes. I wouldn't hesitate to use this service again. It is much more personal and loving in the home environment. Thank you again, Dr. Abby."

Mary Martelette
Williamstown, New Jersey

Annie Dion-Byrd, DVM

"As all parents of fur babies know, making that gut wrenching decision for euthanasia is a terrible one. But knowing Lap of Love is available to make the process a bit easier for both the pet and owner is helpful. It will never be painless when saying goodbye to a pet, but having Dr. Annie, and other vets like her, come to your home and care for your pet in their last moments is a small comfort."

“Chewy was such a good and handsome boy. Everyone said so. He loved his family and especially, Andrew. He was very wary of tall men with glasses, but even as Andrew grew tall, he was never scared of him. He enjoyed walking with his mom for an hour almost everyday. He loved the sunshine, warm towels from the dryer that he snuggled up in, chicken and ...

“Our Cassie was due to turn 16 in March. She has been such a great addition to our family, bringing us so many wonderful memories (including the night she had 7 puppies!). She was recently diagnosed with end stage renal failure, and were willing to do anything to keep her around. However, we could see how much pain she was in, and knew it was her ...
