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.

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. Tiffany

Tiffany Matheson

Growing up in rural Oklahoma I had many pets, some of which included dogs, cats, fish, rabbits, and even pigs.  I spent nearly all my time with them or reading about them and when I was only five years old I told my parents that I wanted to be a veterinarian.

For my 16th birthday I got a Dalmatian puppy named Molly.  Molly was my baby, and she was with me through high school, undergraduate college, and vet school. During my final year of vet school though, Molly became ill with chronic liver disease and 2 days after graduation I had to make the decision to let her go.  This was my first time having to make that decision and while it was very difficult I was thankful that I was able to give Molly the gift of ending her pain.

Throughout the past 9 years while working as a Veterinarian, I have helped many people say goodbye to their babies and I feel privileged to have been able to give them a peaceful and loving last memory.

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. Blaine

Blaine Brennock

I was born and raised in Palm Beach County, FL and as a young child, whenever I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was always a Veterinarian. My passion for animals led me to attend the University of Florida for my undergraduate and Veterinary degrees. After I graduated from The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, I worked in corporate and private practice in the Orlando area for several years before moving back home to Palm Beach County.  

In my time practicing, I have grown to love client interactions and developing solutions to help strengthen the human-animal bond. I pride myself on providing the most up-to-date medical knowledge and care to allow my patients to live a great quality of life. One area where this plays an important role is end of life and hospice care. One memory that I've always carried with me is that of losing my childhood best friend and cat, Stoney. My family had him since I was born; we grew up together and were great companions. When we were both 17, I took my beloved friend and companion to our veterinarian as he wasn't feeling well. Unfortunately, my best friend was very sick, and he didn't come back home with me that night. My final memory of him was one where he was placed on a cold, sterile table and he became so stressed during this time that he passed away before the veterinarian could help him transition. Although, I know the vet was doing his best, I couldn't help but think that Stoney would have been more comfortable in our home. This memory has stuck with me for my entire career and inspired me to join the Lap of Love family. Honoring a loved one by giving them a dignified last day is what I would have loved for my best friend, so I am honored to be able to give this gift to others.  

When I am not helping families and their furry companions, I am often enjoying family time, running, going to beaches and parks, or on vacation. I currently reside with my fur family that consists of one dog (Kiara) and two crazy cats (Windsor and Aurora).

"Although I was unable to have Laps Of Love assist Isabella’s passing, they provided comfort for me after her passing. Dr. Blaine Brennock was very sensitive and thoughtful In his handling of Isabella. I sincerely appreciated his after hours visit."

Debbie Miller
Boca Raton, Florida

"Dr. Blaine was so kind and compassionate. It is never easy to say goodbye to your four legged family member, but of all the fur babies in the past we have had to say goodbye to, this was the easiest, most loving, most caring, less stressful experience we have ever had. I told Dr. Blaine that I don't think we could have hand selected a better or more compassionate person than him.

We are so thankful and grateful to him as well as the staff for having such a caring service.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you."

"Dr Kimberly was wonderful in assisting with Bella

I am so great full for lap of love and the work they do"

Karen Gerakines

"It was a difficult call to make, but from the moment I heard Morgan's voice I felt comforted. The manner in which she conducted the phone interview eased my mind. The following day Dr. Blaine came to our home to help our precious Jayaa transition. He was the perfect person for her and for us as well. He has all the right qualities for this type of assistance ….. kindness, compassion, gentleness and I could go on and on. As difficult as this was, Dr. Blaine helped us through in a loving and tender way. My family is so grateful for him and for Lap of Love. Thank you."

“You were my family as I started the new chapter of my life in Florida 5 years ago. I will miss my best dining and shopping companion, who remembered every store on Worth Avenue that gave her treats.
