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.

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. Sy

Sy Woon

I was born and raised in Australia, where my parents and older brother still reside. However, my heritage is Malaysian Chinese, and my family and I would regularly visit our relatives in Malaysia which ignited my passion for travel and exploring culturally diverse cuisines. Ever since I can recall, I have had an inherent love for all animals, and a desire to help them and save their lives. As soon as I knew that a job as a Veterinarian existed, that was my sole aspiration in life!  

Growing up, it was unconventional for Asian families to have pets, and my parents who worked full time were being responsible by not giving in to this 5-year old’s persistent wishes. Yet, at 9 years of age, my parents gifted us our first (and only) family dog; a Maltese/Silky Terrier puppy whom my Father named “Nick” because we got him in the “nick” of time just prior to my birthday. Nick was the most loyal, intelligent and resilient dog you could ever meet. He brought such joy to our family and taught us all about a pet’s unconditional love. Nick meant the world to me, and intuitively comforted me if ever I was sad.  

After years of hard work and dedication, it was a dream come true to be offered a place in the University of Sydney’s veterinary degree program. During my final year, I accepted an externship at South Florida Wildlife Center, which led to my moving to the region after graduation. Since then, I have worked both in private clinics and non-profit vet hospitals. Being a veterinarian is my life's passion, and practicing veterinary medicine with the utmost compassion and my patients’ welfare as the highest priority has always been vital to me; throughout vet school, I was president of the University of Sydney Animal Welfare Society, and within the past several years have been the Florida State Representative for the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. Hence, when it comes to the critical importance of end-of-life care, I feel privileged to have the opportunity to utilize my veterinary skills and knowledge to alleviate suffering and give pets the most respectful and peaceful goodbye possible, in the comfort of their own home.  

Our beloved Nick was 17 years old when we had to bring him to the veterinary clinic to be euthanized. He was terrified of going to vet hospitals and I truly wish we had the opportunity for him to be given a peaceful passing at home. After experiencing this personal loss, both with Nick and my sweet 3-legged cat Cinderella, I cherish being able to provide the gift of a peaceful passing to other pets. Animals have enriched my life in countless ways and are the most loyal, loving, and selfless souls. My own fur babies mean everything to me, and I adore every one of my patients I have encountered and whom I treat as my own. I am honored to help families navigate this challenging decision with dignity, empathy, and peace.

"On the worst day of my life Laps of Love was such a comfort. What a beautiful way for my soulmate to pass. Dr. Woon was professional and such a comforting part of the whole process. I am so thankful for this service and for her. She is such a genuine person. Thank you for making my miserable day sting a little less. My Elvira was at peace. I am gonna miss her for the rest of my life but it means the world that my final memories with her were that of love and comfort."

"We are so grateful for Sy Woon and Lap of Love for their professionalism. Their approach and her kindness made a very challenging time so bearable. Dr. Sy took her time with us and explained every step. After Jewel a/k/a PeeOPee's passing, she gave us time to say our last goodbyes and for our other two Dal's to have closure as well. Jewel passed away peacefully in the comfort of our home in these unprecedented times. We truly believe the team at Lap of Love is the most passionate way to manage your pet's quality of life and passing. Thank you, Dr. Sy, and Lap of Love."

"Dr. Woon you are an angel! The time you took to talk to us and our sweet dog PEANUT was touching to say the least! When a decision is made to put your best friend for more than 11 years out of her pain and misery, you question everything about the timing and your personal sadness for doing so. Dr. WOON you took all of that hesitation and wondering away from us. We knew after being with you for only a few minutes, that this was the right decision for our sweet girl!

You were so kind and patient and our family thanks you for this! PEANUT thanks you for the kindness and tenderness given to her. She will always have you Dr. WOON in her heart as well!"

"Dr.Woon was such a compassionate doctor. From the moment she came in, she filled us with peace and comfort. Clifford was always anxious with strangers and she was able to comfort him. We were not ready to let Clifford go, due to the unexpected events of his health. He was always so healthy and strong. However, Dr.Woon gave us all the time we needed to say goodbye to our sweet angel. She never rushed us and made sure we were ready to let him go. Dr.Woon was gentle and filled us with ease. His last day was filled with peace and love. Thank you Dr.Woon for your dedication, compassion, sympathy and patience."

“Jewel, a/k/a PeeOpee, was our pretty and zany Dalmatian girl. She had an extraordinary personality with our other two rescues, Avalon and Supu. She was a quirky creature that loved us as we loved her back. There were times PeeOpee would get quite fussy when the thunder and rains came to getting nasty when we had to leave the house.

“Suki, you were the kindest and sweetest dog, always showing so much love to those around you. You were always in a happy mood, wagging your tail and greeting others every chance you had.
