OTHER SPECIES

AFTERCARE PRICING

PRIVATE CREMATION
Pets up to 99 pounds$240
Pets 100 - 200 pounds$270

With this option, your pet is cremated privately at a licensed crematory. The ashes are contained in a lovely cedar urn with an engraved nameplate and will be returned to your primary care veterinarian within two weeks. They can also be made available directly from the crematory or mailed to you for an additional fee.

*Mailing of urn to your home or office ~ $20

COMMUNAL CREMATION
Pets up to 99 pounds$90
Pets 100 pounds and over$130

This option is for families that don't wish to have their pet's ashes returned nor wish to bury at home. Pets are respectfully cremated with other pets at the licensed Craig Road Pet Cemetery. Remains are scattered around the lovely grounds, tall trees, and rose garden.  The cemetery grounds are always open for a visit or reflection, and many of our police, fire, military, and service dogs have been placed there since the early 1960’s. 

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 additional help is needed outside what is available in the home, we may request that the crematory come to assist us.  In this case, an additional fee will be needed to cover their charge. 

AVAILABILITY

We are here to answer your questions every day, from 6am - 8pm. 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.

Meet The Doctors
Let us introduce you to the amazing hospice veterinarians in your area!

Dr. Jessica

Jessica Jensen

I have been practicing medicine for almost 7 years after graduating from the University of Wisconsin Madison in 2009. I worked in private practice in Wisconsin before moving here to Las Vegas where I started with Banfield in April 2010. I grew up on a dairy and sheep farm in Northeast Wisconsin. As a child, I always wanted the best for the animals on our farm and even fixed a broken leg on one of the barn cats with popsicle sticks! I became interested in how to treat animals and learned the importance of preventive care from the farm.  But have also developed a passion for quality of life care. I am currently focused on treating dogs and cats. I currently have one dog named Harlow who is a three-year-old Terrier mix. Ialso have four cats named Harvey, Walter, Milton and Alfred. In my free time, I like to go hiking, shopping, to the movies and sleep!

Dr. Toby

Toby Goldman

Dr. Toby Goldman graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1992. He studied and worked on St. Kitts in the Caribbean, then completed a clinical year at Oklahoma State University. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.  Dr. Toby worked in the San Francisco Bay Area, a busy practice in Cincinnati Ohio, and moved to Las Vegas in 1995.

He is a capable, confident, and experienced clinician, and well known in our community and nationally.  A Nevada licensed and USDA accredited veterinarian, he has worked as an associate, practice owner, and Animal Emergency Center board member and president. Dr. Toby has consulted for entertainers, hotels, zoos, and the state veterinary board.  He has cared for many “exotic” and zoo species, including fish.  He often speaks, writes, and performs for groups, clubs, and schools. Appearing in television, radio, online, and print, he has educated and commented on a wide variety of topics. 

Dr. Toby’s veterinary interests include traditional and holistic medicine, using a common-sense scientifically based approach. He loves to talk about recognizing and managing pain, and uses spinal adjustments, acupuncture, joint lubricants, herbs, and supplements.  With an extensive background in nutrition, food is often the best medicine. 

He is active road and trail running with his Australian Cattle Dog Brizzie, playing softball, racquetball, hiking, snow skiing, boating, scuba diving, and riding his ATV.  He also likes playing his guitar and ukulele, singing, painting, and travel.  He is fluent in sign and worked as a Sign Language Interpreter for the Deaf, Entertainer, Teacher, and Travel Counselor.  He is a dad to three great teenagers that keep him challenged and proud, and his personal mission statement is “to create love, magic, and passion, by sharing my authentic self.”

"Dr. Toby provided the most gracious and loving transition for our Dot. He made sure we were aware of every detail and aspect of the visit, giving us all the space we needed to say goodbye to our beautiful fur baby. He was absolutely remarkable in his presence, demonstrating so much love and respect for our situation, and we are grateful that he could help give our Dot a peaceful, dignified and stress-free Earth Graduation. We cannot express enough how thankful we are to Dr. Toby for giving us and Dot this gift of grace and love."

Kathryn Chavez
Las Vegas, Nevada

"Dr. Toby was wonderful. He explained everything before and during, and even after, as to what we could expect. He gave us the time we needed to say goodbye and was so caring and understanding. I wish he could have known Beethoven before he got sick so he could have known what a great cat Beethoven was. But we think he could tell for the few minutes when he first met him. Thank you so much for making this as comforting an experience as possible. It is never an easy thing to say goodbye to your pet, who is a member of your family, but I’m glad we had Dr. Toby to help us through it."

"Dr.Toby Goldman is an absolute gem. He handled the euthanasia with extreme professionalism.He was caring and at the same time exacting. It could not have gone smoother. God Bless you Dr.Toby."

Eileen Clay
North Las Vegas, Nevada

"This is unfortunately the second time Dr Toby has assisted me with an at home euthanasia, however, I couldn't ask for a more kinder, sympathetic, or more compassionate person to help make it a little bit easier. Thank you Lap of Love and Dr. Toby."

Cari Cast
Henderson, Nevada

"Dr Toby is a kind soul, that does an amazing job putting families minds to rest while caring for their pet's passing. He assisted my parents with their dog, and I knew when it was time, we would ask for him. They do heart wrenching service with all the care & compassion possible."

Melissa Despy
Las Vegas, Nevada

"Dr. Toby has the natural ability to make an unbearable situation a little bit bearable. Being able to bring our Sophie peace while at home kept her and her family calmer, and it was of utmost importance to my husband and I that we not let our emotions take over and upset Sophie. She left this world free of pain and anxiety, and surrounded by love...an ending we can all hope for. It would not have been possible without L of L and Dr. Toby.

Thank you, Dr. Toby. You are an angel of mercy."

Scott and Shelly

“Sweet Dot, you came into our lives like all our Fur Babies have...you chose us that night when we were at a friend's house and you seemed to come out of nowhere, and immediately jumped into my lap, claiming ownership of me. Our friend had said you were a ferral kitten, abandoned by it's mother for being the littlest in the litter. But we all ...
