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. Jordan was very empathetic and professional in handling our pet Lucky. We were appreciative of the service he provided even though it has to be one of the toughest jobs.

Thank you for your help!"

"Lap of Love is simply an amazing organization. The depth of their compassion and empathy is simply astounding and I don't know how we could have gotten through this difficult time without Dr. Taheri. He explained the entire process to us from start to finish and was incredibly respectful of our grieving. He took the time to help us talk through our decision and even though we all had to practice social distancing due to COVID-19, his loving presence nearby was felt by all of us and helped us to get through this incredibly difficult and painful time. I am forever grateful to Dr. Taheri and Lap of Love for making Bozo's last minutes on earth peaceful and pain-free."

"Dr. Kimberly was calm, reassuring and concerned. She evaluated Max and listened carefully to our observations. The actual procedure was quick and painless and peaceful. Max was handled with care throughout and we were given as much time as needed with him."

"Dr. Kimberly Moen came to our home to help our nearly 16 year old dog Duffy die with dignity, love and peace. The process is so difficult and it is very important that someone travels to you who can answer questions, hear your needs, and provide compassion and care. Thank you Dr. Kimberly for helping us. We will never forget you."

"This is long overdue,I l said goodbye to my precious Lucy on April 4, 2019. What can you say about an angel who was with you for 17 years. Lucy came to us when she was about 7 months old; we walked into a kill facility and asked who's next and she was it. Lucy was a feral dog who didn't know how to live in a house or just be a dog., but she adapted to the Boca lifestyle very quickly. She loved to go in the car, especially to McDonald's drive through for a hamburger which my sister fed her in the back set while I drove around. She was the Queen of the Neighborhood, the best friend to every dog and person who lived here. Unbelievable smart, she used to play pranks on her sister who fell for them over and over. But most of all, she was a funny soul who always made us laugh; I will continue to miss her every day. Just saying thank you to Dr. Kimberly Moen and Dr. Mary Gardner doesn't begin to express my gratitude for the love they showed to Lucy, my other baby Jazzy and me."

He was with us for almost 15 years, so I ...

“Our sweet baby boy Mo went to the rainbow bridge to become a puppy again. He was the best boy doggie any family could ask for and we loved him with all of our heats and souls.

“Sweet is the adjective to best describe Max. He never met a soul he did not like. He loved cookies and his long evening walks. As he aged he was happy to ride in his stroller just as long as he got his walk. Max travelled across the country several times and was a terrific companion. During his early years he was a therapy dog and visited the ...
