Erica Fry, DVM

"As I type this I'm still crying as this was the first day in many years I woke up w/ a pet or two or three in my bed. Petey was the last pet I had and he had an unbelievably extensive health history including multiple cancer surgeries, radiation... the whole 9 yards. But he was like a Timex. He took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. Speaking of "lickin' " this was the first morning in years I didn't wake up to a face full of dog kisses.

However, I want to say that if I could have kept Petey around longer and healthier I would have done anything and everything, but the last 48 hours of his life saw him failing fast. Lap of Love and ..."

Caitlin Dobecka, DVM

"We were so fortunate to have Dr. Caitlin guide us through this very difficult day. Dr. Caitlin was kind and patient, and she explained every step and allowed us to take as much time as we needed as we said good-bye. We were able to give our Mocha Bear the departure she deserved, full of dignity, security and love. Thank you Dr. Caitlin for the wonderful work you do."

"Jessica from Lap of Love was very patient, understanding and compassionate. She really exceeded our expectations and we are very appreciative of her service and dedication to what she does. I highly recommend Lap of Love to anybody going through the difficult time of deciding what is best for your pet and family. It was still an incredibly difficult and painful decision to make, but Jessica was a big help in getting us through it."

Jessica Spitzer, DVM

"Dr. Jessica provided us with help in making Sydney's transition easier. We were comforted by her compassion, love, and caring for Sydney as well as for us. She was just what the doctor ordered. Even though it was a traumatic time for us, and our dear Sydney, we are forever grateful for her being brought to us."

Joni & Daryl Clark
Simi Valley, California

Dana Lewis, DVM

"Dr. Dana was absolutely amazing. She was gentle, caring and so very patient.

Her follow up note in the hours afterward demonstrates just how much she and Lap of Love care about what they do and how they can help us send on our loved ones with peace, respect and dignity.

I'm so happy she and Lap of Love have chosen to provide this very difficult service and do so with so much thought, care and concern."
