Includes a brief examination by the veterinarian to help explain your pet's condition, discuss symptom management including pain and anxiety, and prepare an end of life care plan using the appropriate quality of life scale to manage your pet along with your family's needs and desires.
There may be an additional charge for extended travel (see Service Area below), holidays ($50 - $100), pets over 99 lbs, appointments outside normal business hours (when arranged), aggressive pets, and some exotic species.
Although we mainly see dogs and cats, some of our veterinarians can assist you with other species such as pigs, guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, birds, fish, and goats. Call for pricing and availability.
With this option, your pet is cremated privately at a licensed crematory. The ashes are contained in a lovely wooden urn with your unique paw print laser etched into the wood 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. Your veterinarian will discuss your options directly with you.
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 a licensed crematory and ashes are scattered on a tree farm in Rockingham County.
There may be a fee if additional assistance to safely carry your pet out of your home is needed.
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, so we do our best to accommodate same day appointments with a few hours notice when possible.
If this is a medical emergency, please contact your local veterinarian or one of the emergency clinics listed in the Local Resources section.
Let us introduce you to the amazing hospice veterinarians in your area.
Amanda Moon, DVM
I did not have the typical childhood of most veterinarians. Growing up in a small Texas town, I was not raised with lots of pets. In fact, it was not until I moved to Florida for college that I found my calling. I immersed myself in my job at a veterinary clinic as well as in volunteer opportunities at The Clearwater Marine Aquarium and local animal rescues. It was through these activities that I realized my passion for veterinary medicine. I went to veterinary school at Michigan State University, and upon graduation entered into a companion animal internship for the next year. In my time as a veterinarian, I have worked in a variety of settings including both family practices and emergency/specialty hospitals.
As my first dog has progressed in age, I have continued to learn new techniques to keep her happy and comfortable. I even completed a canine rehabilitation certification course. I truly believe that expanding my knowledge base in this area has made me a better doctor and advocate for my patients. My experiences have allowed me to improve on treatments for pain management and quality of life for geriatric animals.
When I am not working, I love to cuddle up with my animals and read. Or you might find me traveling. There are so many places I want to go!
Janine Oliver, DVM
I became a veterinarian as a second career, but it is my first passion. Although I was born and raised in Fairfax Virginia, I have considered North Carolina my home since 1987, when i earned my Physical Therapy degree from East Carolina University. I decided to return to school to earn my D.V.M. from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine because I am passionate about preventing animals from pain and suffering. I am particularly interested in the physical challenges that many older and disabled pets face. Even though I enjoy seeing many different pets every day, I concentrate my practice in physical rehabilitation, pain management, veterinary nutrition, soft tissue surgery, stem cell therapy, and geriatrics.
After graduating from NCSU in 2008, I joined an alternative and general medicine small animal practice in Charlotte, North Carolina. I also worked part-time as a veterinary nutrition resident at North Carolina State University until 2011. I use my physical therapy and veterinary nutrition skills to help my patients extend their quality of life for as long as possible. When the day comes that an aging or ill pet can no longer rally and respond to therapeutic measures then I believe in making sure their last moments are spent with their loved ones in peace and comfort.
I am a member of the following professional organizations: AAHA, AVMA, IAAHPC, AAFP, NCVMA, AAVN, and IVAPM. I strongly believe in giving back to my community by working with these wonderful local charities, SPCA of the Triad, Break The Chain Kennel Kru, and People & Paws 4 Hope.
My wife, Audra, and I share our home in Greensboro NC with our two cats Ellen and Barney and our four dogs Piedmont, Tyrion, Bunny and Krypto. We also have two amazing adult sons, Billy and Patrick who live and work near by. I feel so very fortunate to be part of an animal loving family and lucky to be able to work with animals and the people who love them every day.
Amanda Moon, DVM
"The difficulty of letting my mom's cat go was compounded by the fact that my mom is elderly and has a form of dementia that impacts how she sees and understands things. In addition, my mom was having suffering from an ear infection, and so the situation was truly difficult.
Dr. Amanda from Lap Of Love was terrific in communicating to our mom, and in working with her condition to make the euthanasia process clear and to give our mom choices. Dr. Amanda's care and commitment to a humane and considerate process were evident, and we so very deeply appreciate all of it!"

"Dr Amanda was so patient and loving. Such a calming presence in the face of such sorrow! She was reassuring not only to my sweet boy Samson but our whole family! I am so thankful that we found her!"
Dawn StanleyRandleman, North Carolina
"An empathetic embracer of the moment who carried solace."

"Dr. Moon arrived and the first thing she did was focus on Sadie. She petted and talked with her first. She explained to us what would happen and let us lead the way in timing. She was respectful of our wishes and made sure Sadie was respected at all times. She gave us time to say goodbye, both before and after, and asked permission to place Sadie in basket, cover her, and take her away. This was the best experience I have ever had in letting my fur babies cross the Rainbow Bridge, and I will always use Lap of Love in the future."
DIANN MCBEECLEMMONS, North Carolina
"When it was time to say goodbye to my cat, Newton, (she had kidney disease) I simply couldn't imagine putting her in the car and taking her in to her vet. Her last moments would be unfamiliar and fearful. And I can't tell you how glad I was that I contacted Lap of Love. Dr. Amanda Moon came out to my house–and she was so kind, compassionate, and friendly. She even brought Kleenex with her! I can't thank her enough for the soothing conversation, both for Newton and myself. I will never question that I did the best thing for my kitty. Thank you so much."
Kimberly BruggerMcLeansville, North Carolina
"There are no words to truly express how much we will miss this precious boy. He came to us as a sick and unwanted stray almost fourteen years ago. He integrated well with our other kitties. He was always a lover and never a fighter. I can't say the same about some of the others. King, whose more affectionate nickname was "Chimmie", just wanted to be shown love. He watched us lose six other kitties and he was such a comfort each time. Now, we have lost him and we are heartbroken but know that he is no longer sick, uncomfortable and sad. Dr. Moon came yesterday to help our baby peacefully pass. She was very comforting and understanding. Lap of Love had helped us with another pet before so I knew what I wanted when Chimmie's time came. My sweet boy got to sit in my husband's lap (his favorite place) and peacefully go to sleep. I am so thankful this service is available. I could not imagine loading my baby up for another trip to a vet's office. He was comfortable, in his home and with the people who loved him so very much. We will love him and miss him forever! Thank you to Dr. Moon and Lap of Love."
