AFTERCARE PRICING

PRIVATE CREMATION
Pets up to 39 pounds$250
Pets 40 - 99 pounds$275
Pets 100 - 149 pounds$315
Pets 150 - 200 pounds$365

With this option, your pet is cremated privately at a licensed crematory. The ashes are contained in a lovely wooden 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.

COMMUNAL CREMATION
Pets up to 39 pounds$150
Pets 40 - 99 pounds$175
Pets 100 - 149 pounds$215
Pets 150 - 200 pounds$265

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 interred in an ossuary at a peaceful pet cemetery.

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 - 10pm. 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. Lisa

Lisa Rodin

I grew up in California in a house that always had pets - dogs, cats, guinea pigs and even rats. From an early age, I had an affinity towards animals and science. When my parents got me a Dachshund puppy, Joey, for my 11th birthday I officially made the decision to become a veterinarian. Joey was my constant companion and support through turbulent teenage years and made the move with me when I went to Whitworth University in Spokane, WA. I met my husband there and we got married shortly before I started applying to veterinary schools. Joey moved with us to West Lafayette, IN where my husband and I both continued our educations at Purdue University.   

During our time at Purdue, we welcomed more pets into our home: the sweetest Labrador, Rosie and three cats - Orion, Riku, and Goliath. It was also while in Indiana, in my third year of veterinary school, when I had my most memorable experience with pet loss. Joey was sitting next to me on the couch while I studied and in an instant, he was gone. While I was devastated to lose my devoted companion, I was also thankful that he went quickly and without suffering. However, I know that this was a relatively rare outcome for a pet.  About a year later we made the difficult, but good, decision to provide a peaceful passing to our sweet Rosie, who had developed cancer for the second time.  I remember being so thankful for the loving veterinarians at the teaching hospital that supported me through that decision and surrounded us while they helped her to pass quietly and without pain.   

After earning my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, I worked in a small animal general practice. Over time, my family grew and we moved around until finally settling in Oklahoma City with two boys and two cats. Working in small animal general practice was fulfilling and enjoyable in many ways and during my years in practice, I developed an unexpected appreciation for the peace and stillness that comes into a room when a family says goodbye to their loved one. In the midst of the busyness of general practice, suddenly everything slowed down and I got to hear about the family and all the fun adventures they have had with their pet. Together we would give their pet the last best gift we could: to let them pass peacefully and without any more suffering. Through Lap of Love, it is my mission to provide the same compassion and guidance to families as they navigate the muddy waters of end of life care for their pets and it would be my honor to help you and your family during your time of need.

"Thank you for the kind words and thoughts. We so appreciate your tender compassion for Sasha and we were relieved to see her go so peacefully. She was a part of our lives for 15 years and she will be a part of our hearts forever.

We are so grateful to you for helping us get thru a very sad day.

Thanks again."

"Dr. Rodin was amazing and the most respectful during this process. Having to make the decision to put your animal down is one of the hardest and I so happy we were able to have someone come to us. When Dr. Rodin arrived she talked us through the process, answered all of our question, and patiently waited until we were ready. She loved on my cat like it was one of her own and was so gentle with her all the way to the end. I am forever grateful for this experience and the service provided."

"I cannot thank Dr. Rodin enough for her kind and compassionate care of not only my sweet Willie Nelson, but also my mother and myself. It's never easy to say goodbye to a much loved family member however, having the option of doing so quietly, peacefully, and privately in my home made the transition much easier. Willie Nelson was not anxious or scared which put me at ease. Dr. Rodin has such a wonder "way" with animals and humans alike. When the time comes again (which it surely will) to have to help another beloved pup to transition out of this life, I will call on Laps of Love and Dr. Rodin."

"Dr. Lisa, thank you for the email. We miss Lovey so much. This house does seem empty without him. Everything is a reminder of him. He was a part of our lives for 16 yrs. Being the last of the "Four Brothers", makes it especially hard. I can't stop crying. Thank you so much for coming to our house to help us to say goodbye to Lovey and thank you for being so kind and compassionate. That means a lot....Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for your warmth and compassion and for assisting us in our home. If the situation arises again, I'm definitely calling you. It takes a special kind of person to do what you do. Thank you."

"I'll be brief. Dr. Lisa was diligent thoughtful caring and warm. I couldn't have asked for more from the service she provided and she was chiefly concerned with the comfort of my baby which helped."

Sam Owens

"Thank you lap of love Dr Lisa for walking us down this journey on Christmas Eve. Thank you for helping us on Yoshis end-of-life experience. You made it very pleasant for my family and other pets. Thank you for being at the gravesite with us for those final few minutes. Thank you for helping us put her to peace at home in her bed and not allowing her to suffer through her terminal illness. It meant the world to us."

Thank you God for our Yoshi

“We are still learning to live without our sweet boy Dusty. He came into our life as a rescue but left as a family member. He was a gift that in the end reminded us to love more deeply. Our home will never be the same without him. What a blessing it was to have the opportunity to bring Laps of Love into our home and offer the care he deserved. We ...
