Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"Madison was the first pet I have ever had to go down this path with. I was so worried that when the time I would be able to be there for her. I received information about Laps of Love from a friend that had to recently say goodbye to her dog. After talking with her I knew that when the time came they are who I would call. Little did I know I would be making the call the next week. Dr. Gassier came in and sat down on the floor and got to know all the pets. She let me tell her the story how Maddy came into my life and just took time to listen. She explained everything to me and was so loving and gentle with Maddy it was such a relief. No stressful ride in the car for Maddy, not vets office. She was able to go on her next journey in the safety of her dog bed with me Molly and Tigger by her side. I would not have changed anything other than having her for a longer any my life. Thank Loren for everything. Your wonderful email later that day. The loving way you took care of Maddy and me. You are a god send."Candace CobbTarpon SpringsNovember 12, 2019Madison's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"During this extremely emotional and difficult time, Dr. Loren was incredible. They explained everything, she hugged us and assured us we were making the right decision. I cannot thank her enough or the nice gentleman from Pet Angels.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"Dr. Loren put my Mom's doubts to rest as soon as she walked in the house. Dr. Loren went right to our cat Cricket and knelled down on the floor and did not leave Cricket's side. It was almost like Cricket knew that Dr. Loren was there to help her with all her pain. When you love an animal so much and they have been part of your family for over 20 years you feel like you are betraying them by ending their life. But Dr. Loren was so knowledgeable and warm and understanding. We knew we were doing the right thing after spending just a few minutes with Dr. Loren. Dr. Loren explained every single thing that she was going to do before and during the procedure. Dr. Loren spent over an hour and a half with us. She was so full of love and understanding. I was so happy with our decision because I knew my Mom was at peace with us finally deciding to put Cricket down. I know this testimonial is not doing Dr. Loren justice. She is a beautiful person and we are so blessed that she came into our lives and helped Cricket rest in peace."Christine BaroneEast LakeNovember 1, 2019Cricket's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keely Smith"This was the hardest choice I have ever made. My girl, Roxy a 15 year old Great Dane, had collapsed outside and was unable to move. I knew it was rime and Dr. Keely was absolutely the most compassionate person to us. She gave us time to say goodbye and let us decide when to do it."Kimberly FergusonBrooksvilleOctober 24, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nil Wilkins"Finding Lap of Love was truly a blessing. Bandit hated going to the vet. He was sick for awhile so he went a lot and he hated it, so it killed me thinking his last moments would be at a place he hated. When I called the vet to see if they would consider coming to my house they told me about Lap of Love. I can’t tell you what a relief that was for me it made the most difficult decision a little more easy. All I wanted was for him to be at home, for me to be there by his side holding him and loving him to the end. Dr. Nil came to our house and she was so compassionate and understanding she let me hold Bandit during his passing and it meant everything to me and Bandit. I will forever be grateful that Lap of Love and Dr Nil exist and are there for people and their fur family"Bobbi NellonsRiverviewOctober 20, 2019Bandit's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"If there ever was a sweet and gentle veterinarian to assist a pet into her final transition, it's Dr. Loren. Words can't describe how grateful I am that Dr. Loren was Emma's hospice vet. She took her time, making sure to love up Emma first. She gently explained the process to our family, assuring us that Emma will feel no pain.

Emma's life was filled with love. Thanks to Dr. Loren, her last moments on earth were filled with love, too. Thank you, Dr. Loren, for being part of this process."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"I'm so glad I reached out to Lap of Love to assist me with saying goodbye to my baby. Elizabeth was so kind and compassionate throughout the entire process. Merlin was my whole world, we were truly soulmates. He recently got cancer in the way of a melanoma oral tumor so despite him being 16 his decline happened very fast for me and I was not ready to let him go. Being able to hold him in my arms with his head on my chest while he passed peacefully was so comforting for both of us. Thank you for giving us final moments I will cherish always. I love his perfect little pawprint also."Jenny SchroederTAMPAOctober 5, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"The front office staff (Josh/Lisa/Donna) were absolutely wonderful and very comforting when making arrangements for our beautiful boxer, Tess. With their assistance, we were able to provide her the comfort she desperately needed. Unfortunately, Tess never had a chance to meet Dr. Loren because she had an abrupt change in her health. We called Lap of Love to inform them and Lisa was very supportive and provided additional after-hour resources for our baby girl. Each staff member I spoke with was very sweet and comforting in their sentiment which was greatly appreciated. You would've thought that they had known Tess for years. Based on my brief experience, I would highly recommend Lap of Love given their professional and compassionate approach to such a difficult process."Alex CalvertSeminoleOctober 4, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"Calling LapofLove was the right thing to do. Our Poodle, Calum, had Lymphoma. We tried chemo, and hoped for remission. He was able to enjoy his last months with us. It was a blessing to have Dr. Elizabeth come the same day I called. Calum declined rapidly. Dr. Elizabeth was punctual, kind, and sympathetic. She explained the process, and took a paw print as a memory.

We received a call today, that Calum’s ashes are at the vets office. We will treasure the memories. He will always hold a special place in our hearts. Thank you Dr. Elizabeth for easing his pain, and taking care of him for us. You offer a loving, kind, and caring service.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"I want to express my gratitude and admiration to Dr. Loren Gassler who was so kind, comforting and caring. She helped make a very difficult process a little easier to bear by explaining every thing in detail, giving me time to process, and did so with such tremendous compassion for me and to my sweet boy. She genuinely cares about each dog and its situation. I have used Lap of Love with 3 other dogs in past years and can't imagine saying goodbye without veterinarians like Dr. Gassler to assist in such a difficult situtation. Thank you Dr. Gassler. You are an angel."Sandra BustinTampaSeptember 25, 2019Zouk's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"Saying goodbye is so very hard, but dealing with Lap of Love staff and Dr. Liz made all the difference in the world. I didn't even know in home euthanasia was offered. My son asked if we could do at home because he didn't want Siamey's last memories to be a stressful car ride to the vet and being on a cold metal table. Dr. Liz was so compassionate. She took her time with us, explained the process, and most importantly, reassured us it was the right time. We are truly lucky she was the vet sent to us. Very grateful for kindness shown and her calm, gentle manner with our beloved Siamey."LuAnn PadronWesley ChapelSeptember 25, 2019Siamey's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"Dr. Elizabeth and lap of love have gave my family and I so much support and love during one of the most difficult times ever. When we were told Copper had cancer that metastasized to his lungs we were devastated. We were told he most likely had a month or so to live. Copper has always been so stoic and brave he never let on that he was in pain, he just was so selfless. But we knew we needed to make this decision to prevent his future suffering. After calling Lap of Love and getting so much support and advice I knew they were exactly who I wanted to help us. Being able to lay him to rest in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loved one was exactly what we wanted for him. Dr. Elizabeth was so gentle, kind and compassionate to our boy and us making the hardest day of our lives to date more bearable. We are forever grateful for her and all the staff at Lap of Love."Stacey CosseySt. PeteSeptember 18, 2019Copper's Pet Memorial
