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 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.

"Jessica was WONDERFUL with helping me transition my baby into the afterlife. She allowed me to hold my boy through the heart wrenching process. She knew this was the hardest thing I would ever experience and provided me with time to say all the things a mommy says to her baby before he leaves her arms for forever. She provided me with a plaster cast of Cageys Paw print and clippings of his beautiful red and white fur. She spoke gently and compassionately. She allowed Cagey to drift into a gentle slumber and waited for his snoring to commence before the final shot was administered. Its those moments that I will always remember. I got to hold him and listen to him snore knowing he was a happy and content upon crossing the rainbow bridge. I was able to hold him for as long as I wanted and have that much needed alone time. I am glad she was able to visit my home as Cage was terrified of the Vets and I didn't want him to be in fear his last hours on earth. This service brought a difficult time and made it easier and more comfortable for Cage and Myself. I will Highly recommend to anyone that will have this difficult decision to make. Jessica was compassionate and very sweet. I thank you for your services."

"Dr. Jessica was very kind, gentle, understanding. I am highly recommending this service. She wrapped my baby in a blanket and placed her in a basket. She said to me "I'll take care of her" and it lifted a great weight from my shoulders."

"Dear Dr. Wilbourne, I wanted to reach out and say thanks so very much from the bottom of our hearts for you kind, tender, sweet and compassionate care of our little 14 year old Coton de Tulear, Cassie, also know as Sassy Cassie the Wonder Lassie, on Sunday September 22nd in Oreland, PA. Carrie and I agonized about the final decision and the timing. We had friends that highly recommended Lap of Love. From the time of my first telephone call to the service to watching you turn the corner in your jeep with our little one wrapped in her families arms with the blanket we supplied, what will always be a sad time is held in our memory as the most generous, loving and heartfelt gift to us in our loss, to Cassie as she crossed to the Rainbow Bridge and to you with giving us the kindest gifts of all....time, compassion and understanding. In a time of such pain, loss and heartbreak, we are so glad you were with us and helped us through the entire process. We want to thank you for the 3 Paw prints and locks of hair, for your follow up email on Monday and for you sympathy card that we received yesterday. How kind and how thoughtful! In the best Irish tradition, we had 2 Wakes for Cassie!!!! A group of neighbors who all knew, loved and took care of Cassie at some point and in some way over 14 years came for wine and Cassie stories on Monday night. We made a little picture "shrine" in the kitchen so everybody could see her over the years. We did the same on Tuesday for another friend who could not make it on Monday!!!! Our girl was Honored!!!! Please know how gifted you are at what you do and how we will never forgot you. Please let me know if I can be of any service in the future. All the best and all our love, Keiren and Carrie and Cassie!!!!"
