ADDITIONAL AFTERCARE FEES

To best honor your personal space, our doctors do not arrive with a vet technician.  Therefore, if your family has elected cremation for a pet over 30 pounds, we may ask your assistance moving your loved one after euthanasia has been performed.  If no additional help is available from friends or family to move your pet, please let our team know so that we can schedule appropriately.  The most important thing is that your loved one does not suffer, arrangements for assistance with cremation can be made at a later time. 


We are proud to offer Aquamation for aftercare in South Florida.  Click here for more information about Aquamation.  

AVAILABILITY
We are here to answer your questions every day, from 7am - 11pm. Appointments are scheduled throughout the week, please call for availability.

Sometimes pets take a turn for the worse overnight or in a short amount of time, so we do our best to accommodate same day appointments with a few hours notice, but cannot guarantee that.

If this is a medical emergency, please contact your local veterinarian or one of the emergency clinics listed in the Local Resources section.

Dr. Jordan

Jordan Taheri

My first pet as a little boy was a long-haired guinea pig named Bogie.  We had hamsters in the past, but this was our first pet that was all mine, and I loved him.  So when Bogie got sick and soon passed, I was devastated.  I did not agree with my friends’ suggestions to “just get another,” because there was no other Bogie, and he was gone.  It was really at this point that I realized I was meant to be a veterinarian. 

Years later in 2010, I proudly graduated from University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.  Having worked all over the country, I now find myself back where I grew up, in Broward County.  The place that has always been home to me.  I’ll never forget the memories that Bogie and I shared, and what he meant to me.  In joining Lap of Love, I am truly humbled and honored to have the opportunity to help people and their loved ones in their greatest time of need.  We can never replace our beloved furry friends, but we can give them the loving gifts of comfortable end of life care and a peaceful passing.

Dr. Amanda

Amanda Grant

Growing up as an only child, I found my brother in a cat named Smokey. Smokey would ride in my doll stroller as I pushed him on walks. He didn’t leave my side when I was sick, always there to comfort me. Then he was my protective older brother always sitting between me and the boyfriend during the teenage years. Smokey was with me for 22 wonderful years. Through him, I discovered the strength of the bond between humans and their devoted pets.

I knew, even back then, that my life needed to be dedicated to the preservation of this bond. Since then I have shared this special bond with my other cats, dogs, ferrets, birds, rabbits, and even fish. Each one of these wonderful creatures shared the same bond with me in their own unique way and deserve the same merit. I then learned eventually, this bond must be shared beyond this world, and that I could help others make the difficult journey with dignity and respect, honoring the love that they shared with their “Smokey”.

My heart goes out to those who are near the end of their earthly journey with their pets, whatever species they call their friend, and I hope to help preserve those precious memories and ease their transition.

"Dr. Amanda Grant was amazing with our sweet 13 year old goldendoodle, Coby. It was time to say goodbye to him, and we had just relocated from out of state and had a difficult time finding veterinary care. Scheduling was easy, Dr Amanda was prompt, caring and kind. Coby left our us peacefully and lovingly in our own home. Dr Amanda even made a keepsake clay pawprint for us to remember him by. We would wholeheartedly recommend Lap of Love and Dr Amanda for your pet's end of life care."

"Dr. Jordan came to our home to evaluate Holly. I was terribly sad, and could not get my words out without shedding tears. He was very gentle. Very respectful, to me and to Holly. He did not try to persuade me into a choice. He just listened, evaluated, and gave advice when asked.

He left, understanding I was not ready yet. I spent 48 more hours with Holly, and Dr Jordan returned. I could barely deal with it. He was very gentle, very kind, and sympathetic. He treated Holly, and our family members with dignity, and respect, along with compassion.

It was as peaceful of a way to go as anyone could ask for.

Thank you for doing that for my fur baby, Dr Jordan."

"Annie was the sweetest dog I have ever encountered in my life and she gave us nearly 14 years of unconditional love. Her passing leaves a whole in our hearts and the most wonderful memories. Dr. Jordan was very understanding and compassionate as we helped our sweet Annie pass over to the other side. One day you will run into my arms again and I love you with all my heart..."

This was the hardest thing, by far that I’ve had to do. I am truly heartbroken. I’m lost without you Holly. I feel as though a part of me is literally missing.
To anyone who says, it’s a pet, ...
