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. Kimberly

Kimberly Moen

I grew up in California and Arizona. Along the way, I connected with many creatures, large and small, and they have been a core part of my life. Since I was old enough to walk, I played by butting heads with my goat Willie, rode horses with joy, and sneaked around the forest to catch a glimpse of wild deer. I even found a "secret" place for a new kitten amongst my stuffed animals so I could keep her inside the house. As a child, most of my conversations revolved around how my friends’ pets were doing. 

I formed a strong bond with my childhood dog, Katie Mae. She was a Labrador/Husky mix who sang beautifully with the coyotes at night and befriended my guinea pig, Skittles, who shared veggies with her.  We took care of each other for ten amazing years. When, Katie suffered from a systemic infection beyond treatment, it crushed me. I have endured the loss of many beloved companions over the course of my life, and deeply understand the strong the connection between an animal and a human. 

It was inevitable that I would take the Veterinarian's oath to help animals, to prevent and relieve their suffering. So, I proudly graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine after doing my clinical rotations at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. I then went on to gain experience through general practice. Now, it is my desire to support and connect with people and their beloved animals alike. Through providing in-home hospice and peaceful transitions, I achieve this goal. For me, it is a beautiful thing to offer comfort and guidance to people during their most challenging and selfless gift to their furry family members.

"Dr Kimberly was such a great help in our very difficult time. She was very professional and compassionate at the same time. Her guidance through the process was most helpful.

Dr Kimberly’s calm and reassuring manner gave us the strength to let our beautiful Brandy go."

"In the middle of the CoVid crisis in South Florida, I knew that my 11 year old boxer Maggie was on her downward slide. After two cancer surgeries, and obvious signs of her cancer growth returning, coupled with her lethargy and outward signs of pain, her time had come. I didn't want to take her in the middle of the night, and sign her into a vet's office for a lonely death. So, I called Lap of Love and Dr, Jordan came to our house and peacefully put her down. My husband and I were with her. She passed on her rug by the front door. It was sad and painful to see her go, but it was the best way for Maggie and her family,

Thank you Lap of Love and Dr. Jordan for your service."

"Dr. Tahiri was patient and kind. Thank you for what you did for sushi, you helped her pass to the rainbow bridge and not feel pain anymore. Thank you for what you did for our family and giving our family the opportunity to say goodbye at home"

"Faced with one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make, contacting Lap of Love was the best thing I could have done. Having Cassie for 16 years made saying good bye so very difficult. Dr Jordan and the staff at Lap of Love were so very sensitive, caring and compassionate with the entire process. Dr Jordan was wonderful, he was kind and gentle . He explained the process to us, and let us take out time saying good bye. Our last moments with Cassie were love filled surrounded by her family. We are all so grateful to Dr Jordan and staff for treating Cassie and us with dignity and compassion at such a difficult time.

Sincerely,

The Zielinski Family"

"Dr. Jordan was as professional and kind as any Doctor we have ever met. He was patient and explained everything he was doing in great detail. Suzy did not suffer or get upset during the procedure, something a visit to a vet office would have been terrible.

“Brandy, our beautiful Newfoundland, passed away this Friday at the age of 12 ½.
It was over 10 years ago that we were searching for a Newfie rescue. We found Brandy through the NEWFFL rescue-she was just 2 at time. Just 2 months prior, we had adopted brother and sister Piebold Dachshunds; Brandy and the two Dachshunds were instant family.

“Our home and hearts have a huge piece missing since Leroy's passing. His sister Nukka misses him dearly and there's not a moment that passes that I don't think about him. I miss getting greeted with his toys in his mouth and his endless kisses. I know he's in a better place and he's no longer in pain. Mommy and daddy will forever miss and love him.”
